PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

LAUNCHING SATURDAY 8TH MAY. Beautifully presented with an elegant and sophisticated décor throughout, is this lovely 5 double bedroom, Victorian family home offering plenty of period features and bundles of character and charm. The house has been lovingly renovated by the current owners through their years of ownership, including replacing all the windows for double glazing, the front sash windows have been replaced with wooden framed ones to retain the character of this lovely house.

This handsome Victorian mid terrace property has plenty of kerb appeal with an impressive period façade of exposed London stock bricks, complimented with detailed masonry surrounding the sash windows and door. The house is set back from the street by a good size walled front garden that has been beautifully landscaped. A Victorian themed tiled pathway leads to the front door that is protected by an ornate masonry porch.

Upon entry there is a wide hallway with high ceilings covered in detailed corning, underfoot are wide engineered Oak floorboards that lead seamlessly through to both reception rooms. The staircase leads upward and beneath is access to the cellar which offers a good amount of storage, especially for wine!

At the front of the house is a double reception room that runs from front to back, it’s separated by huge original Victorian double doors so each area can be divided off offering flexibility on how the space can be used.
The front reception room is dominated by the large wooden framed, double glazed sash bay windows that illuminate this room with natural light, they are also furnished with stylish plantation shutters that offer additional privacy as well as looking pretty! The other dominating feature is the fireplace which has a beautiful marble surround with a working wood burning stove installed, to the side of the chimney breast is a fitted cupboard in the alcove.

The rear reception is a cosy lounge area which has a matching marble fireplace surround with an original cast iron working fireplace set within, either side of the chimney breast the alcoves have built in cupboards with bookcases above. At the far end of this room are French doors that lead out to the garden via the side return.

The kitchen dining room is at the rear of the house, the whole area has underfloor heating underneath the large cream floor tiles. There is a bay window in the dining area which looks out to the side return and allows for natural light. Beyond this is the kitchen which is fully integrated with a washing machine and dishwasher. There are plenty of additional wall and base mounted white gloss storage cupboards, there is a wooden worktop above housing the sink on one side of the room and a large 8 ring range cooker on the opposite side with an extractor hood above, both of these areas have funky blue splash back tiles. Direct access to the garden can be found through the large wooden double-glazed French doors at the far end of the room.


The garden is approximately 40ft long (12m), it has been neatly manicured and cared for by the current owner with an array of mature plants and shrubs that bloom throughout the year. There are two patio areas both clad in Indian sandstone, one closest to the house for morning coffee or evening alfresco dining and another patio area at the rear which catches the sunshine all day, great for BBQ’s in the summer! At the centre of the garden is a well-kept lawn which is surrounded by borders of those lovely plants.

Upstairs on the first floor is a large double bedroom room that occupies the whole width of the front of the property. Two large wooden framed double glazed sash windows flood the room with natural light and are furnished with shutters. The room has high ceilings and carpeted flooring, there are also integrated wall reading lights by the bed,
bespoke fitted wardrobes along one side of the room and a pretty fireplace with an ornate Edwardian surround on the other side with an original period cupboard in the alcove.
