The property is blessed with all the architectural charm that you’d expect from its era, alongside a number of modern touches which distinguish the property from its immediate neighbours. Brickwork is finished in a distinctive aquamarine, with the stonework being highlighted in white. This colour combination is also used on the garden wall to deliver an architecturally integrated feel to the property. The original double height mullioned bay window is complemented by a well-integrated enclosed modern porch, and to complete the unique look of the property, window frames are finished in dark grey with the glazing featuring a gothic design leaded border. Enter through the glazed outer door and you’ll find yourself in a large porch ideal for the storage of outdoor boots and coats. From the porch, through the original front door of the property, you enter the spacious inner hallway with its original coving, turned wood staircase straight ahead and useful under-stairs storage cupboard. Immediately to your right you’ll see the high quality oak and glazed door which leads into the first reception room. This is a large room with abundant natural light from the large south-west facing bay window and space for large sofas, armchairs, an entertainment unit and bookcases. There are impressive original features, including intricately moulded coving, ceiling rose and dado rail, along with deep burgundy painted window trim. More modern, contrasting elements consist of a deep pile dark grey carpet and a feature wall of bold floral wallpaper. There’s also a large central heating radiator. Back into the hallway and once again to the right, through a matching door you’ll find the second reception room. This room has a more modern feel with simpler coving and a contemporary colour scheme, including grey carpet, light grey paint to three walls and a feature wall with a fresh interpretation of an arts and crafts style wallpaper. Currently used as a second sitting room, this could just as easily serve as a formal dining room and would even have space to also include a desk area to enable working from home. At the far end of the room is a bay incorporating windows and a glazed door which leads to the outdoor space, making this a fluidly fantastic entertaining area. We’ll exit through this door now to explore the secure rear garden which is fully paved for low maintenance. There’s room for an outdoor dining and sitting area and there’s also a brick built outhouse which includes storage space, a WC and a sink – perfect for cleaning the dog (or the kids!) after a long walk. We’ll re-enter the house through the side return door into the kitchen. Here you’ll find a large array of gloss white upper and lower cabinets and drawers, with modern chrome handles and topped by a multi-toned timber effect laminate worksurface. There’s a dark grey resin inset basin with chrome mixer tap and plumbing for a dishwasher or washing machine. Avid chefs will be impressed by the amount of worksurface on offer and by the large five burner gas hob, built-in oven and stainless steel and glass extractor. The floor and walls are fully tiled for easy cleaning and maintenance. An open archway leads to the breakfast area – a flexible space ideal for informal family dining or could alternatively be purposed for additional storage or as another option for home working. Floors are laid with wood effect laminate in a tone which cleverly matches the kitchen floor tiles and walls are painted in a light coral to complement the kitchen wall tiles. At the other end of the breakfast area is a door which leads back into the hallway, providing access to the stairs to the first floor. The stairs lead to a landing which provides access to all the rooms on the first floor and a second staircase to the attic bedroom.
The first door on the left takes you into the stylish bathroom. The white three piece bathroom suite comprises of a large L-shaped shower/bath with a glass shower screen, a WC, and a large hand basin set on a dark wood vanity unit with elegant wall mounted mirror above. Walls and floor are fully covered with large stone effect ceramic tiles and there’s a chrome, combined towel rail and radiator. Back to the landing and the next door to the left takes us into bedroom three. There’s a selection of light beech effect built-in furniture, including wardrobes, drawers and shelving. There’s plenty of room left for a large double bed, bedside cabinets and a desk or dressing table. The neutral coloured walls are accentuated with an attractive stencilled butterfly and floral scene. There’s also a radiator beneath the large window which looks out onto the rear garden. The next room along the landing is bedroom two, another large double room. There’s an even more impressive array of built-in furniture in this room, finished in a rich dark walnut laminate – including wardrobes, high level storage, bedside cabinets and a separate drawer unit. There’s a luxurious, light grey carpet and complementary paintwork. This room benefits from the bay window facing the front of the property, which offers a bright, additional space ideal for a seating area or dressing table. The bay also accommodates a large radiator.
The final room on this floor is bedroom four, which is a single room once again facing the front of the property. This room easily accommodates a single bed and additional storage furniture, but would also serve well as a nursery or study. There’s a high quality engineered timber floor, a radiator beneath the window and light coloured walls with bright stencils to add a stylish finish. Finally, from the landing we’ll take the stairs up to bedroom one, tucked away in the impressive attic conversion. This is a large room with good head height and plentiful natural light from the two roof windows. The floor is laid with another high quality engineered timber floor and decoration includes a feature wall with stylish candy-striped wallpaper in multiple shades of red and silver. There’s space for a large double bed and plenty of storage furniture and there’s also built-in eves storage. This room would make a great space for the grown-ups or an exciting teenager’s retreat.
