PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Sitting proudly on the corner of Devonshire Road and Benson Road is this simply stunning two double bedroom garden flat, set on the ground floor of a handsome detached Victorian house. The flat benefits from being sold with a share of freehold and has been tastefully decorated to a modern style yet still maintaining an abundance of original period features.

As you approach the property you are immediately impressed by the striking Victorian façade of yellow stock brick, period detailing and large sash windows. It is set back from the road with a private communal front garden. An arched porch contains a large front door with beautiful stained glass windows leading to the communal hallway.

A private door to the flat opens to a hall with access to the cellar The solid oak wooden floor leads seamlessly through to the main reception room where there is an immediate feeling of space from the high ceiling and natural light drawn in by the sash bay window at the front of the house overlooking the front garden. This room has been exquisitely decorated with calming coloured walls, stripped and varnished original wooden flooring and a centrepiece period fireplace. There is plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs, and a couple of sofas.

The bathroom is conveniently located in the centre of the flat, with painted original floorboards and partial wood panelling on the walls and to the bath. The bath is enclosed by a glass shower screen with shower head above. The butler style sink has a mirrored vanity cupboard above, adjacent to a toilet and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom is located on the opposite side of the hallway from the bathroom, with carpeted flooring and a window to the side return.

The master bedroom is at the back of the flat and has double patio doors leading directly to the rear garden, perfect for those warm summer evenings or fresh summer mornings. The floor is carpeted and there are fitted wardrobes along one side of the room.

The kitchen is also located at the rear of the flat and has direct access to the garden. It has been stylishly renovated with white painted floorboards, white base and wall-mounted units providing plenty of storage. There are integrated appliances with a solid wood worktop housing the sink and the hob. The room is double aspect with one window overlooking the garden and another to the side.

The garden is west facing catching most of the afternoon sun, perfect for alfresco dining in those warm summer evenings. There is a patio area as you step out of the flat with a lawn beyond, surrounded by mature borders filled with shrubs and roses. There is also a storage shed for gardening tools and a flowering cherry tree acts as a natural canopy providing shade and beautiful blossom in the spring. As the house is detached the garden can also be accessed via the side return.

The cellar is a great additional benefit. The entrance is located off the hallway with steps leading down to a very usable storage space with good head height. It has two distinct spaces, the first being a very good area spanning the width of the property, great for storage! There is also an additional room which has been converted into a workshop by a previous owner, fully equipped with a work bench.
