Sat proudly on the corner of Devonshire Road and Benson Road is this simply stunning two double bedroom flat, set on the first floor of a handsome detached Victorian house. The flat benefits from being sold with a share of freehold and recently refurbished to a modern style yet still maintaining an abundance of period features.

As you approach the house you are immediately impressed by the striking Victorian façade of yellow stock brick, period detailing and large sash windows. Set back from the road by a private communal front garden and under an arched porch is a large door leading to the communal hallway.

Upstairs on the first floor is the entrance to the flat. The hallway gives access to all the rooms and has an entry phone system and solid Oak wooden floors that lead seamlessly through to the main reception room.

As you enter the lounge there is an immediate felling of space and natural light that is drawn in by the huge bay window at the front of the house, there are also lovely views from this window. This room has been exquisitely decorated in calming colored walls, well laid solid Oak floors, fashionable radiators and a centrepiece of a fully operational period fireplace. There is so much space in this room there is plenty of space for a large dining room table and chairs, a couple of sofas and a desk/office space. The feeling of space is exaggerated by the high ceilings and cornicing the room offers and the way that the kitchen has been opened up to join the reception.

Separated by a freestanding worktop breakfast bar is the kitchen area which has been cleverly designed to maximize worktop and storage space. There are double cupboards stacked above making the most of the high ceilings, there is a solid wooden worktop with base level units housing integrated appliances, a good old-fashioned Butler sink and white underground tiled splash back. A large sash window to the side of the house floods the kitchen with natural light.

The luxurious bathroom is conveniently located in the centre of the flat, easily accessible from both bedrooms and the kitchen reception room. It has been fully tiled around the bath in natural stone, the bath has an integrated Jacuzzi which is enclosed by a glass shower screen and shower head above. The sink has is set on a vanity unit with mirrored vanity cupboard above, there is also a toilet, heated towel rail and a double-glazed window for light and ventilation.

The two double bedrooms are at the back of the house making them nice a peaceful. Both are fairly equal size and offer high ceilings, cornicing, sash windows with nice views. The master bedroom has Oak wooden flooring and neutrally decorated. The bedroom adjacent has carpets and is currently set up as a child’s bedroom.
