Full description

This striking home is sure to excite! Set in the heart of this most popular part of Essex Road its line of hornbeam trees contrast superbly with the classical style early Edwardian red-brick elevations! We would argue our home is one of the finest examples of character in the road and whilst the original features have remained barely untouched the current owners have been steadfast in their commitment to combine a splash of contemporary whilst showcasing the tremendous features on offer! Internally you will find a large sitting room, ground floor cloakroom, simply huge family dining room and glorious kitchen breakfast room on the ground floor. Upstairs are three genuinely impressive size bedrooms and a bathroom. Of further appeal to the overall size you will find a usable cellar and good size workshop/shed that was previously a garage, even this element of the home has been improved with two large velux style windows installed. Throughout the home enjoys a bright living environment with its high ceilings and large windows flooding the home with natural light. Throw in the meticulous attention to detail in restoring the features and we believe this to be a truly unique home in an unrivalled location! With too many attributes to list and with no forward chain this home has to be viewed to appreciate everything it has to offer!
