Description

A fine Georgian residence constructed circa 1837 and one of a pair, built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Coronation. Beautifully appointed and sympathetically renovated during the 10 year tenure of the present owners, the property offers a versatile and adaptable footprint with the principal home closely coupled with a large independent annex. This is ideal for a dependent relative, income, an au pair or could be seamlessly incorporated within the home as additional bedrooms

Albert Seafield enjoys an elevated position with outstanding and far reaching panoramic views extending over the Channel, towards the Welsh Hills beyond and on a clear day you can see both Severn Bridges. Constructed from traditional materials, plenty of original detail has been retained and yet modern enhancements have been made creating a comfortable family orientated environment. The principal home is arranged over two floors and features a reception hall with a rising staircase with a mahogany turned handrail. There is a contemporary and quality oak effect Karndean floor and a reclaimed old school radiator, these are notable throughout the ground floor. The drawing room includes the original French doors overlooking the front elevation with secondary glazing and original working shutters. There is a traditional fireplace with an open flue, slate hearth, ornate surround and cast and tiled inset. Walls are part panelled and a deep recess offers an advantageous view. Beyond is the occasional sitting room with further French doors opening onto the rear courtyard and adjacent is a shower room/wc fully tiled with Porcelanosa tiles. The kitchen/dining room is 26' x 12' being open plan and the social hub of the home, bathed in light with matching French doors, secondary glazing and original working shutters. A natural wood floor extends from the dining area into the kitchen which includes a range of hand built wall and base units with solid walnut work surfaces. There is space for a 900mm range cooker, American style fridge freezer and there is plumbing for a dishwasher. The utility has a matching range of wall and base units and floor coverings with a casement window and door to the rear courtyard. The gas fired boiler supplies the domestic hot water and central heating and there is plumbing for a washing machine and space over for a tumble dryer. The study provides useful live/work prospects with a beautiful arched door to the front elevation, a casement window and top light.

There are 4 first floor double bedrooms enjoying differing orientations and views and these are served by the more recently updated bathroom which incorporates a comprehensive white suite with half Porcelanosa tiled walls. The master bedroom also includes a walk in wardrobe.

The annex is self contained with it's own independent door via the covered porch and rising staircase and yet can be incorporated via an interconnecting door off bedroom 3. Recently refurbished this is a comfortable environment for extended family members and yet historically has provided a useful income. There is a sitting room, dual aspect with lovely views over the channel, a kitchen/diner with a range of newly installed wall and base units and brand new integrated appliances such as an oven, induction hob, extractor, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. A casement window and door lead to a private and fenced courtyard. Adjacent is the double bedroom with a further door to the courtyard and the bathroom that has a panelled bath, shower attachment, WC and wash basin.

The drive offers ample off street car parking and turning space and the garden which is ornamental and features a good display of flowering plants, shrubs and mature trees. A level strip of lawn to the front of the house is an ideal spot to enjoy the late afternoon sun and breathtaking evening sunsets. The rear garden is arranged over four tiers with two large upper lawns, sun terraces and a sunken courtyard which is ideal for 'al fresco' dining and features an ornamental pond. Rockery borders display a variety of shrubs, there is case box hedging and notable specimens include a Twisted Hazel and a cooking apple tree. The top two tiers are extensively lawned, both used as children's play areas and to the side of the upper lawned tier is a private raised terrace which enjoys simply breathtaking, panorama views.
