Why you’ll like it:

As with many of the neighbouring buildings also of this period, the exterior is smart and unpretentious, with pale brick walls and white gables. It is set well back from the road by a driveway to fit several cars, and you approach up some central, wide stone steps, and into the entrance hall. Once inside it is immediately clear that this is a beautifully cared for home, where quality materials and refined taste have fused to create a superb space.

To the right, a double width opening and a few steps take you to the lower level where there are two peaceful bedrooms; both with fitted cupboards, and both of generous proportions. There’s also a family bathroom on this floor with a separate shower cubicle and glamourous tiling, and next to this a study or a smaller bedroom, perfect for a child or as an occasional room.

Returning to the entrance hall, double doors opposite lead into the sitting room which is wonderfully sumptuous with plush cream carpets underfoot, an ornate feature fireplace to keep you warm in the warmer months, and space for several comfortable sofas. From here you move to the rear of the house to the heart of the home, where the family room moves round to the stunning contemporary kitchen and dining space. You can easily imagine holding a sophisticated dinner party in here, or a party spilling out into the garden; as well as having ample space for the children to run and play; where guests can chat to you as you cook. The units are sleek in white gloss and have fully integrated appliances. The worktops glisten in white Corian, and the central island is stylishly lit by three industrial pendant lights. This whole room overlooks the rear garden which is sizable and set to lawn with easy to manage floral and shrub borders. There’s space out here for entertaining, and also a trampoline, but centrally is a sweet rockery and a paved dining area from the patio doors. Steps from the kitchen lead down to the garage and utility area, but there’s lots of room for bikes, a car and storage down here.

Returning upstairs to the first floor there are two large double bedrooms, both with a soothing palette and decor, and both with en suites. The master bedroom has a full width terrace to catch the last of the evening rays, and to watch spectacular sunsets from too.

This immaculate home has an air of grandeur, impeccable style, and a sense of space and light that only few houses bring. Perfect for a growing family; but also a wonderful home to entertain, in a vibrant and cosmopolitan city. It needs to be seen to be admired.

Bear in mind:

The nearest train station is Preston Park which is a 20 minute walk, but it does have direct links to London. It would be easier however to commute by car as you can be on the A23 in a matter of minutes.
