Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial and extended Victorian semi-detached villa with character accommodation and large gardens requiring modernisation.

A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial Victorian family house in excess of 2000 sq ft with potential to extend or expand further set on a large plot with garage and off road parking.

The pretty storm porch opens into a reception hall with stairs to the first floor and cloakroom beneath, and accesses the sitting room to the side with open fireplace and bay window to the front. An arch leads through into the morning room with further doors to the hall and a very large dining room with exposed brick chimney breast which in turn leads through into a breakfast room. Off the breakfast room is a kitchen with a range of fitted units, a chimney breast with inset range and a larder. These rooms could be combined along with a rear porch to provide an extensive kitchen/breakfast room opening directly onto the rear gardens.

To the first floor is a galleried landing with doors to the family bathroom and two of the double bedrooms with aspects to the front and rear, both with attractive wrought iron fireplaces with tiled hearths. A fourth bedroom (which offers the potential for a study, dressing room or ensuite shower) leads into the master bedroom with sash windows overlooking the rear gardens. There is also a substantial loft space with dormer window suitable for conversion.

The property offers a wealth of period features with picture rails, exposed floorboards, chimney breasts and fireplaces and is worthy of an internal inspection to fully appreciate the character on offer.

There is driveway parking for 2 to 3 vehicles to the side of the property leading to a brick single garage with up-and-over door (requiring attention). To the front is a small cottage garden with mature shrubs and plants and gated access beside the garage to the rear garden.

To the rear a paved patio area and steps lead onto an extensive lawned garden some 252 ft in depth bordered by timber panel fencing and lined with mature trees and shrubs. Towards the rear of the garden is a compost area behind a post and wire fence. In total the gardens are some 0.30 of an acre and offer superb potential for landscaping to offset this imposing family home.
