Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This handsome Edwardian detached house is one of just a few iconic and large period properties arranged along the southern side of Bereweeke Road. The property is enviably positioned in the north-west corner of the city, offering superb, easy access to the heart of the city centre itself. Internally, there are delights at every turn, with an excellent array of reception spaces, bedrooms and ancillary accommodation totalling well in excess of 4000 square feet. Externally, lovely architectural touches such as original multi-paned sash and leaded casement windows, set within traditional half-brick and half-rendered elevations are sure to add to the immense appeal.

The house has the added attraction of lying close to the mainline railway station for commuters to London and elsewhere, and being surrounded by excellent local private and state schools for children of all ages. This exceptional family home has extensive and beautiful gardens of 0.75 acres.

This immensely spacious property boasts many rooms with attractive period features such as picture rails, deep skirting boards and original sash and casement windows. The principal receptions radiate from a large central hall which also contains a beautiful oak staircase leading to the upper floors. To one end of the hall there is a large drawing room with super bay window overlooking the garden, and a built-in cupboard/display cabinet as a smart centrepiece. At the front of the house there is also a smaller sitting room or snug with beautiful leaded windows to both side and front. The central part of the house on the ground floor contains a wonderful dining room, which has a door directly to the kitchen as one would hope, but also a door out to the garden flanked by large windows. Alongside the dining room, the kitchen/breakfast room is an excellent space with ample units and built in Miele appliances such as dishwasher, hob, oven and grill. Doors directly to the garden and windows on two aspects ensure there is plenty of natural light on offer.

Practical needs are admirably catered for, thanks to an array of rooms including large utility, walk-in larder, store/boot room and W.C., all arranged near the kitchen. Additionally, stairs lead down to a most useful cellar divided into two rooms. There is a further W.C. off the main hall.

In all, there are an impressive seven double bedrooms contained within the first and second floors, as well as three good bathrooms. The rooms on both floors are accessed via large landings, which contribute to the overall feeling of space. Of particular note is the lovely master bedroom with large bay window overlooking the garden, and with sizeable en-suite bathroom. At the opposite end of the house, there is a suite of rooms that can equally be used as part of the main house, or as a self-contained annexe or suite of rooms. This excellent collection of rooms includes a bed/sitting room with kitchen area, a bathroom, and its own hallway with storage cupboards. Overlooking the garden, there is a large, covered balcony with spiral staircase descending so that the annexe can have its own entrance if desired.

The mature south-facing gardens, in excess of ¾ of an acre, are a super feature of this lovely property. With extensive lawns, beautiful beds which are well-stocked with flowers and shrubs, a rockery, vegetable patches and pergola, there is something to delight wherever one looks. The rear façade is very handsome indeed and enhanced by a wonderful climbing rose. The whole garden is serene and private, thanks to mature hedging and trees on all sides, while the bottom of the garden contains an all-weather tennis court. Round at the front of the house there is a large carriage driveway, flanked by well-tended shrub beds, and a detached double garage.
