55 Wimpole Road is an attractive double gabled modern detached family house with welcoming accommodation and far-reaching south-easterly views to the rear. Of mellow brick elevations beneath a slate roof, the house was built some 10 years ago and incorporates notable features including sliding sash windows, an attractive turning staircase with galleried landing, panelled doors, and oak veneer flooring in the hall.

The accommodation is well-designed with a deep, triple aspect reception room spanning the depth of the house on the left of the hall with a stone fire surround and hearth and French doors to the garden. There is a dining room to the front of the house (on the right) and a well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room to the rear also having French doors to the garden. This is L-shaped, double aspect and fitted with a comprehensive range of painted base and wall units, cupboards and drawers, granite worktops, a fitted dishwasher, electric Rangemaster cooker with extractor above, recess for fridge/freezer and tiled flooring. Beside is a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a condenser dryer, sink unit, Boulter oil fired boiler and a part glazed door to the rear. A cloakroom and understairs cupboard complete the ground floor accommodation.

The turning stairs lead to an attractive galleried landing, a master suite with superb, distant views is fitted with a range of wardrobes along one wall with hanging rails, shelves and drawers, a separate built-in cupboard and an en-suite shower room having a shower cubicle with a sliding door. There is a second double bedroom, also to the rear together with a family bathroom (fitted with a panelled bath and shower cubicle), and there are two further bedrooms to the front of the house.

Outside, an electric remote controlled gate leads to a block paved drive to the right-hand side of the house which provides visitor parking space and this leads (via manual gates) to a hardstanding/turning area and detached part-weatherboarded double garage with a slate roof. This has two remote controlled double timber doors and a useful loft storage space above. The gardens to the front are laid mainly to lawn with a central path and mature hedge along the front boundary. To the rear, there is a terrace beside the house, gated access to the side with a shed, further lawn and a shallow fence to the rear making the most of the superb distant views.
