Description

The house is understood to date back to 1894 and is a very attractive red brick property set back from the road in a corner plot. Its tall, soft red elevations under a tiled roof are enhanced by the semi-circular brick arch framing the front door and the ground floor bay (with original sash windows) offset to one side.

The accommodation is elegantly proportioned and is light and airy throughout owing to deep (recently refurbished) sash windows, high ceilings and the neutral colour scheme. The ground floor is arranged around a central hallway, with the two principal reception rooms (a dining room and drawing room) leading off from either side of a dog-leg staircase rising up to the first floor landing. The dining room has a magnificent fireplace and a deep bay window whilst the drawing room has stripped floors and another fireplace and enjoys views over the garden to the south. A set of glazed double doors leads from the drawing room into a conservatory, which extends across the back of the house through to the kitchen/breakfast room and straight on to the garden.

A breakfast room beyond the principal reception rooms boasts an original dresser and opens up into the 18' x 17' fitted kitchen with electric underfloor heating bi-fold doors, contemporary high gloss units with composite work surfaces, AEG integral appliances including an induction hob, two ovens and wine fridge, a Samsung combination microwave oven, a hot tap, a larder fridge and a vast array of drawers and cupboards. A utility room with a sink and space and plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer lies adjacent to the kitchen.

The first floor accommodation includes four bedrooms, a bathroom and a family shower room with plunge bath. Bedroom four has an en suite, the third bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and the second bedroom has a lovely view down over the side garden. The fifth bedroom is currently used as a study. The bathroom (which is en suite to bedroom four) has underfloor heating and is fitted with the most beautiful suite combining the best elements of traditional and contemporary design.

The second floor accommodation enjoys views towards the city skyline and has been thoughtfully designed to create a master bedroom suite around its own landing. Other rooms include an en suite shower room, a separate dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes and good eaves space providing excellent storage.

A detached two-bay cart lodge lies to the left of the house and has additional parking in front. The plot extends to 0.23 acres and includes a thoughtfully landscaped rear garden measuring 65' x 67', a large terrace and a raised deck designed to take advantage of the sun. A number of specimen trees and shrubs are dotted around a large lawn and some mature yew and fir trees run along the south-west boundary.
