Why you’ll like it:


This immaculate house sits in leafy surroundings, in one of the city’s most prestigious residential areas. Its elevated position and twin gables give it an air of grandeur, so you are immediately aware this is a sizable property. You approach up the brick driveway and climb a few steps to the front porch which is glazed, so from here you get the first of the views across the city and down to the sea. A modern fitted door welcome you into the generous entrance hall from which the other rooms reside. Amtico wooden floors flow from here into the main reception room to the left, and also through to the generous kitchen and dining room ahead. The main living room is gloriously wide, and faces south so it is flooded with natural light throughout the day from double picture windows. You could divide the room into separate spaces for comfortable seating as well as formal dining or a work space without either one imposing on the other.


The kitchen and dining room can be accessed from the living area, and also from the entrance hall, and this is another bright and airy space as the walls are glazed on two sides to include French doors leading out to the patio area of the garden which becomes an extension of the dining area during the warmer months. The kitchen units are on trend in white gloss, and these are topped with contemporary black worktops for contrast. The induction range cooker is also new, and this has a stylish ice blue glass splashback adding to the sleek finish. There is also space and plumbing for both a dishwasher and an American fridge freezer, and enough surface space and storage for even the keenest cook. The utility room is separate and has space for your washing machine and dryer plus an extra sink as more storage in the same style as the kitchen.


Also on this floor is an office and two roomy double bedrooms, both with plush fawn carpets and fresh white walls adorned with lights. The other is conveniently next door to the downstairs bathroom which is classically decorated in white with a floral blue border. It has a shower over the bath, and an angular handbasin and WC pedestal to give a modern feel. 


The rear garden is raised up further, so it gets a great deal of sunshine throughout the day in the spring and summer. It is set to lawn with ample space for children’s play equipment and there are mature borders for planting. The shed will fit bikes as well as your gardening tools and having access from both sides, there’s no need to drag gardening produce or muddy bikes and dogs through the house on rainy days! 


A flight of stairs takes you to the first floor landing where there is a bedroom with en suite to the right, and another to the left. These are both of equal size with angled ceilings and velux windows framing yet more far reaching views to the east. The en suites are both smart with tall shower cubicles, white tiling and heated towel rails for you fluffy towels. There is a very large store room on the landing, as well as space in the eaves, and a surprise attic room is accessed from the southerly bedroom which is boarded and easily accessible for storage.


This is a beautiful family home that you can move straight into with ease. With so many attractive features, and being in such a favourable location, this character home is sure to attract the attentions of many.


Bear in mind:


The attic room is well proportioned and could easily be transformed into an exciting playroom for children or a cinema room perhaps?
