Set in a sought after residential road just 0.1 miles from Wood End School and 0.7 miles from Roundwood School, this fabulous 1920's home is hard to beat.

Designed around a growing household, this is a perfect option for a long term move, providing opportunities to mould the house to meet the ever changing needs of family life.

The ground floor has been cleverly designed, which provides a variety of reception rooms to choose from, arranged around a spacious central kitchen/breakfast and dining room.

A spacious L-shaped entrance hall is very bright and welcoming with large picture windows overlooking the front gardens and driveway. Rustic herringbone parquet flooring is a practical, yet stylish choice underfoot.

The kitchen has been designed to make the most of the flow-through space with a substantial island unit taking centre stage. With practicality in mind, the 'chef' benefits from having both a gas fired Aga and built-in electric oven ensuring easy all year round cooking.

A very large and bright dining room, with lantern skylight, is adjacent with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden terrace; a perfect place for the family to gather or for catering on a grand scale.

With a useful door leading to the front, there is a very well fitted utility room with extensive cupboard storage.

There is a large room set to one side of the kitchen, which is currently used as a gym, but with a door leading out to the garden could easily be used as a cinema room, playroom or additional family room instead.

There are three further reception rooms on the ground floor, currently arranged as a family room, which measures over 26 feet in length, a large study (currently set up as a dining room) with pretty fireplace and double doors leading back to the hallway and a sitting room with French doors to the garden.

The first floor is arranged around a spacious and bright central landing, which is large enough to accommodate a desk and chair, making for a perfect occasional study or simply somewhere to linger with a book.

The master bedroom is completely indulgent by design. It overlooks the elegant garden to the rear and has a large walk-in dressing room with extensive fitted cabinets. There is a very attractive and beautifully appointed en suite bathroom with teardrop bath and spa style shower, enjoying views of the gardens.

There are a pair of similarly sized adjacent double bedrooms, which share a superb Jack & Jill shower room.

To complete the first floor, there are a further two double bedrooms, each with fitted cupboards, sharing a very elegant family bathroom, which has a roll top bath and large spa style shower.

The gardens have been designed with ease of maintenance in mind. Raised flower beds make for easy weeding. Flanked by an extensive paved terrace and large level lawns, this is a perfect combination of outdoor areas to suit children and adults alike.

To the front of the house there is extensive parking available on a gravelled driveway, which is set back from the road.
