The property
3 Adelaide Road is an outstanding, imposing 4-bedroom late Victorian semi-detached villa, having been skilfully extended, reconfigured and modernised by the current owners with a stunning contemporary glass extension to the rear, which overlooks a large rear garden with a coach house and tandem garage. The home features many original and reinstated Victorian features including leaded windows, open fires, deep skirting boards, coving, ceiling roses, picture rail, original Victorian four-panel doors, original timber sash windows and reclaimed cast-iron radiators throughout. Complete rewiring and re-plumbing has been carried out under the tenure of the current owners.

Ground floor
An ornately carved open porch with original encaustic tiled floor leads to the original front door, with stained glass lead-work and leaded lights above. The hallway welcomes with exposed floorboards, a leaded-light stained glass window and decorative plaster coving and ceiling roses, which adorn the high ceiling. Leading off via original doors are the drawing room, family room and kitchen/dining/family room. The drawing room features a large leaded-light bay window, ceiling rose, deep plaster coving and skirting boards and a Victorian cast iron fireplace set within a marble surround on a deep slate base. The family room offers the same ornate plaster coving, ceiling rose and skirting boards, with the addition of picture rail. The original multi-paned door configuration leads down to the kitchen/dining/family room.

The kitchen/dining/family room is the heart of the house, having two distinct areas that both overlook the rear garden. A contemporary extension with full glass roof and structural glass fins provides an abundance of natural light and two sets of full-height sliding glass doors seamlessly link the patio and rear garden, with the undferfloor-heated Porcelanosa tiles leading to slip-resistant Italian outdoor porcelain tiles. The kitchen features Poliform Varenna wall units, real walnut veneered under-island Varenna units and shelving, and a statement Varenna extractor canopy with six spotlights. Set into the Caesarstone quartz work surface are a Smeg five-zone induction hob and twin Blanco sinks beneath a Quooker instant hot water tap and a KWC Ono tap with pull-out rinse hose. Integrated appliances include twin Gaggenau ovens, a Gaggenau dishwasher, Gaggenau coffee machine, Neff steam oven and fridge-freezer.

The cloakroom off has a fitted white suite comprising wash hand basin, WC and storage cupboard and stairs lead down to the cellar, which comprises three chambers - the smallest being used as a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

First floor
Up the impressive, shallow staircase with mahogany handrail, the first floor half-landing provides access to the stunning principle bathroom. The bathroom was originally a bedroom and, as such, is a superb, luxurious size. The main room features a pitch pine cabinet housing two circular sink basins, ornate timber open fireplace and large cast-iron freestanding bath with freestanding Fired Earth mixer tap. A walk-in shower rom leads off, with Hansgrohe shower unit and rainfall-effect shower head complementing the Fired Earth wall and floor tiles.

A further half flight of stairs gives access to bedrooms 1 and 3. Bedroom 1 (the master) has a large leaded-light glass window, ceiling cornice and rose and a cast-iron fire set into a wooden surround. Two doors lead off - one to the en suite bathroom with leaded light window, contemporary sink unit, WC and walk-in shower with Hansgrohe unit and shower head, the other to a walk-in dressing room. Bedroom 3 has a large sash window overlooking the very open rear elevation and a cast-iron fireplace.

Second floor
The second floor landing has two original doors off, into bedrooms 2 and 4. Bedroom 2 has a leaded light window to the front elevation, exposed beams and a cast-iron fireplace. A door leads to the en suite, housing a WC, basin and shower beneath a sun pipe that brings in natural light from the roof above. Bedroom 4 has a sash window to the side elevation and two Velux windows to the rear and also features handy eaves storage and a built-in desk.

Outside
To the front of the property, a stone chip drive provides hard-standing for two cars. To the side of this and to the front of the large bay window is formal box-hedge planting and landscaping with reclaimed Victorian bricks and slate chips.

The fully walled rear garden is a particular feature. By the rear of the glass extension is a formal, contemporary dining and entertaining area. Beyond this is a less formal lawned garden with extensively planted borders, three established apple trees and a mature plum tree. At the end of the garden, before the coach house, is a further superb, clay stable block paved entertaining area that's bathed in sunlight until around 8pm on summer evenings. Two large wooden sleeper planters, currently strawberry beds, provide extra seating. The coach house is a very attractive building with ornate detailing inside and leads into a long tandem garage that opens onto a private access road serving Adelaide Road, Avenue Road and York Road. These could be converted to into a home office (permitted development existing) or into ancillary accommodation subject to planning permission and building regulations).
