Description

Many people share the same aspirations for their ideal home. They seek light-filled rooms with sizeable windows that make them feel connected to their environment. They look for well-proportioned living spaces and equitably-sized bedrooms that allow for harmonious family life. Beautiful gardens are a priority both for entertaining and providing much-needed relaxation. Finally, they want a location that offers space and privacy, yet still offers easy access to a local community and a wider city. In 1960 a family applied those principles to creating their perfect home, which, for the first time since construction, has come to market.
This house represents a rare opportunity to purchase a sizable, detached house on a generous level plot of around a quarter of an acre. Cheyne Road is a quiet and private road of detached homes dating from the 1930s onwards and is highly regarded within Stoke Bishop. Properties on this road seldom come to the market, with many residents making them their long-term family homes. Tucked away from any passing traffic, yet accessible to local amenities and with good transport links both into and out of the city it is a sought-after location.
The house sits centrally within its plot, well back from the front boundary and screened from the road by shrubs. The well-established gardens have been carefully considered in terms of both planting and design, with a huge range of mature, unusual plants. A brick-paved drive approaches the house, with a garage/workshop complex positioned to the side of the house. The tiled and rendered façade and asymmetrical entrance are all hallmarks of its 1960s design credentials. Apart from the extension at the rear, the accommodation remains unchanged from its original layout, testament to the careful design when it was constructed.
The house is entered via a glazed front door into a practical hallway with two large cupboards providing useful storage, access to guest WC and door to the main accommodation. The two original reception rooms are semi open-plan with their original pocket doors allowing for the space to be opened up or separated off. Both the sitting and dining areas have expansive windows that capitalise on the view of the garden and a large sliding door allows for access out and are a standout feature of the design of the home and place it firmly in the mid-century architectural style that looked for connectivity with the natural world. The living room has a feature tiled fireplace, whilst the dining area has flush-fronted cabinetry providing further capacious storage, as well as wide, turned staircase rising to the upper floor. Accessed from the dining room, the kitchen is fitted with a range of white wall and base units, with feature tiling, as well as built-in double oven and electric hob. Unusually the house was designed with a sizeable utility room; with sink, space for plumbed goods and door to side, making it an ideal entry to the house for muddy paws or boots. It also provides for covered access to the garage complex.
The most significant change to the property is the downstairs rear extension with pitched, tiled roof. This space was designed as a bedroom with built-in storage, window to rear and door to side and its own large wet room. Equally at 8m by 4.45m, this space could be re-purposed as an additional reception room or re-modelled as a fantastic open-plan kitchen/family room opening onto the rear garden.
The well-lit stairway was designed to leave wall space for a feature piece of art and leads on to the landing. The design of the house looked to maximise daylight into the bedrooms, which all face to the front of the property. All four bedrooms have built-in storage and are of good size. The principal bedroom on this floor has additional feature windows to the side to provide a different viewpoint, as well as built-in sink with additional storage. Upstairs is serviced by a very large shower room with modern walk-in shower, basin and built-in cupboards, together with a separate, large WC, again with storage.
The garage complex sits detached from the house, but is linked by the original covered walkway. It comprises double garage, workshop, potting shed and garden store, giving space for bike storage and keeping a valued vehicle out of the elements. Highly useful to a family as currently arranged, it would be possible to extend the house into this space, subject to any necessary consents. The rear garden is again well-established with lawn, established flower and shrub borders, mature trees and a greenhouse and enjoys a level of privacy that is unusual in the wider area.
This unique home within the area has been lovingly cared for over the decades, with modern uPVC double-glazed windows and electric heating throughout, and as such could be moved in to and enjoyed from the outset. Good design however is also flexible and there is plenty of potential to update or remodel to the buyers’ preferences and family needs.
We highly recommend a viewing to appreciate all that this home offers.
