Let’s tell you more about the property…

The property has been a wonderful family home to the current homeowners for 30 years, which is a rarity in itself, so the owners have continually improved, renovated and kept the property in good order, and this shows. As you enter the property via the impressive stained-glass front door, you are welcomed to a spacious and grand hallway that reflects the history of the property, being originally built in 1878. The ground floor has been currently laid out to match the homeowners’ needs and can be reconfigured to taste for a buyer.

The entrance hall leads you to the first reception room with features such as original coving, fireplace with a working fire, high ceilings and a large bay window. The room measures in at an impressive 17’4 ft. x 12’11 ft. The property flows well and you are welcomed next to a grand home office, that provides you with a history lesson as you glance your eyes to the walls. This room was used as a music studio in the past and before that was an integral garage, converted over the years and measuring 18’1 ft. x 9’10 ft. Working from home has become a common theme and this office will make that more than comfortable. Alternatively this room would make an ideal games or play room.

The hub of the home has to be the open plan living area extension that the current homeowners made in 2010; this consists of an exquisite family room with an integrated log burner that is in keeping with the history of the property. There are bifolding doors that provide views of the landscaped, private and secluded garden. Such is the space on offer here, it is home to a 10 foot dining table and a splendid kitchen with integrated appliances and top of the range Rangemaster cooker. The kitchen area provides plenty of storage, keeping the property clutter free and well maintained. The family room measures 16’10 ft. x 11’4ft and opens to the kitchen/dining area measuring in at 17’5 ft. x 16’8 ft. This provides dual access to the garden and is beautiful during the warmer months and a favourite spot for family/friend gatherings.

There is access provided to the basement which is of great use and currently the laundry area, storage and a workshop. The ground floor also has a good sized WC with excellent storage for coats etc. The first floor doesn’t disappoint, consisting of three double bedrooms, three bathrooms and a WC. The Master Bedroom is lavish and has sensible storage solutions in the form of built in cupboards, high ceilings, large double-glazed windows as well as the added luxury of a separate dressing room/walk in wardrobe and ensuite shower room. The first floor is completed with two further double bedrooms, two family bathrooms and a separate WC.

Every bedroom provides adequate storage, good height to the ceilings and the décor palette provides a light and airy feel which is a common theme throughout. The second floor of the property consists of a pair of double bedrooms with ample storage and good height ceiling wise. There is a further storage area in the eaves.

The detached house has a private, secluded and landscaped garden with a splendid patio area, perfect for BBQ’s. There is further potential to extend the property subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions. The current homeowners are keen gardeners and the garden has a number of mature shrubs and trees. At the end is a stunning original brick wall covered in wisteria and a further patio area. The property also has a large driveway that can comfortably park between 4-5 cars at ease.

What the owners have to say about their property…

“This has been our home for 30 years. It is recognised as having local historical interest, dating back to the 1870s. It is a home that has seen our children grow up in a place of love, joy and peace for our family and many of our friends. It has seen creativity, including recording studios. And it has been a place of fun and laughter and hosted many summer and Christmas parties, family events and house concerts. We are sad to be moving on but now it is time for a new family to enjoy the house and to make their own memories.”
