Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Snowdon House is a fine detached residence of character built in the 1930's designed by the local renowned architect Harold G Turner. The house retains many features synonymous of this distinctive design incorporating leaded light windows with some stained glass, a wealth of oak joinery including internal panelled doors, architraves, skirtings, floors, window frames and a handsome staircase with decorative balustrade. The property is in need of complete modernisation and redecoration offering an excellent opportunity for those wishing to renovate and create an individual home to their own specification. The exceptionally spacious accommodation incorporates 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one on the ground floor), 5 reception rooms and a kitchen, there is a large integral garage approached by a private drive and the established gardens enjoy a favoured southerly aspect.

Also within the immediate vicinity is Sainsbury's superstore (Waitrose to be opened shortly), the Dolphin Leisure complex and several local shops.
