Why you’ll like it:

This quintessential period cottage is quietly tucked away on a one way street on the edge of the chic North Laines and as it is far bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside provides airy rooms ideal for a contemporary, sociable life style.

Painted a delicate apricot for the morning sun, a gate at the end of the hard standing for two cars leads through to a winding path with a welcoming light by the sheltering porch which has practical tiling on the floor and room for coat hooks. The front door opens into an inviting living room with plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining. The big windows, generous ceiling height and gleaming floorboards keep the room light and French doors in the far wall open into a central courtyard which has room for al fresco dining. Open and airy in the summer, the cottage transforms into a warm and cosy refuge in the winter when you close the doors and windows and curl up by the fire – there is a perfect niche for one with cupboards for your books already to each side. An open doorway in the far wall takes you into the modern kitchen which is galley in style, although there is room for a breakfast bar or more units to the right beneath the shelving, so there is space to play with. Traditional white units are topped by classic black work surfaces and a big south window brings in lots of light and looks across the patio. The gas hob, electric oven and extractor are all integrated and there is space for an under counter fridge and plumbing for a washing machine. The door at the end reveals an L shaped bathroom where the w.c. is discreetly tucked away and there is a shower attachment on the wall above the bath.

Up the sculptural, open staircase, the first floor has gleaming floorboards throughout and is all on one level. The comfortable double bedroom at the top of the stairs has a south facing energy efficient window and built in wardrobes and is unusually private as it is not overlooked. The second peaceful bedroom is also at the back of the house with fitted storage in place and at the front of the house, the master bedroom spans the full width of the building, has a whole wall of wardrobes waiting for you and the deep, broad bay brings in lovely views of the quirky buildings and gardens along this unique street.

Bear in mind:

You can walk to the shops, clubs, restaurants, theatres, beach, parks and the station from this house.
