Full description

This handsome Edwardian home has been laboriously maintained and sympathetically renovated over many years to create a modern home whilst retaining the spacious elegance and features typical of the era.
Houses at the Oxton end of Storeton Road seldom come to the market and those that have in recent times, needed substantial renovation and repair. Not so with No 29...

Location, Location - Situated equidistant from Oxton Village and the Prenton supermarkets, with a wide choice of schools within easy walking distance, this property enjoys a slightly elevated aspect overlooking Arno Rose Gardens. To the front, a split driveway leading to the basement garage provides parking for up to three cars, and a carefully planted rockery with a number of specimen conifers screens the property from the road.
To the rear, a compact and easily managed garden with plenty of paved patio areas provides a private space for enjoyment or entertaining and if you want the space to stretch your legs or walk the dog, the Oxton Fields are just across the road

At just a smidgen less than 300 square meters, with seven well proportioned bedrooms and three reception rooms, this house is substantially larger than its Victorian neighbours. Of course you are unlikely to need seven bedrooms - at present two at the top of the house are used as an office and a home cinema (wired for a full Dolby 6.1 surround sound system), but these could easily be allocated to a teenager with its own 'chillax' room, a sleepover guest room and a smart shower room. And on the first floor, one of the four bedrooms is currently used as a spacious study - although there is scope and flexibility to use any of the rooms as you feel fit.

Scope For Those That Wish - And to mention the 'P' word - potential - there are ample opportunities for development or rearrangement of rooms to suit without losing the ambience of a home of this nature. The breakfast room with its French doors framed between the upright radiators to either side is unquestionably a very pleasant room from which to step out onto the patio on a bright summer's morning - or it could easily be linked to form a spacious kitchen/living room, as is the current vogue. Meanwhile at the front of the house, two comfortably proportioned entertaining rooms enjoy an agreeable and sheltered front aspect - and either of these could be used as a dining room or lounge. If this is not enough, the basement offers further potential, with a garage, wine cellar and store rooms all accessed from the ground floor.

All In The Detail - Of course as with any period home there are many of the original features. Sash and bay windows, period fireplaces, moulded cornices, picture rails and a handsome staircase on the inside, and red pressed brick to the front elevation with a gently arched terracotta moulding over the threshold add to the attraction.

And the not so obvious details are listed in an impressive schedule of maintenance and improvements carried out by the Irelands over the years. These include the new shower room, the French windows and the refurbished loo closet - and a lot of attention to insulation too.

We are not one for usually highlighting Energy Performance ratings than out of duty - however upgraded roof and ceiling insulation, double and secondary glazing and a new condensing boiler with programmable thermostatic controls combine to give this property a band D EPC rating of 64, which is impressive for a seven bedroomed house with basement. Now their children have flown the nest, the two Irelands have a combined gas and electric bill of £103 per month - better than the cost of heating many modern houses.

Summary - There's a lot of house for your money - seven bedrooms, shower room, bathroom, closet and cloakroom, three entertaining rooms, kitchen, basement and garage areas to use as you please. All with an impressive maintenance record and a considerable amount of insulation.
The combination makes for a comfortable, bright and spacious family house very much worth your while to highlight for a viewing.
