The Property This superbly designed family home has now been transformed to an equally superb specification following comprehensive improvements which combine Edwardian influences with high-end fittings. The house now has a new central heating system with classically styled new radiators, condensing gas fired boiler and pressurised hot water system, together with a log-burning stove which has been installed to the living room fireplace and an open fire in the lounge. The kitchen has been re-fitted and is semi- open plan with the living room adjacent, each having bi-fold French doors onto the enclosed rear garden. On the first floor the beautifully-proportioned bedrooms are positioned around a large, elegant gallery landing over the equally spacious reception hall below. The family bathroom and en-suite shower room to the stunning master bedroom have both been re-fitted and the latter has a free-standing slipper bath to one side, together with an en-suite dressing room with full length fitted furniture. There are new floor coverings to include Amtico oak-effect flooring throughout the hall, kitchen, living room and into the side wing. New sockets and light switches in Edwardian styling have been fitted and most rooms now have coved ceilings with deep mouldings to the principle rooms. The living space flows beautifully for entertaining, both internally and externally - viewing is highly recommended.
