Superb Edwardian residence situated on a mature plot.
A very well presented, grand and imposing six bedroom detached family home set in a generous plot, almost a quarter of an acre on a very well regarded and sought after residential road. The property provides bright, extended living accommodation arranged over three floors meticulously designed for modern family living yet enjoys numerous period features including very high ceilings and beautiful fireplaces.
To the ground floor the accommodation is accessed through a storm porch which leads in turn to the front door and entrance hall. The entrance hall is vast with parquet flooring and beautiful leaded light stained glass side and top windows, typical of the period to maximise natural light. The entrance hall provides access to all principal downstairs rooms. To the front the drawing room is almost 16' in length with a coffered ceiling, large bay window and feature fireplace with marble hearth and insert and coal effect gas fire. The sitting room adjoins the drawing room and again features a coffered ceiling and similar fireplace. The sitting room has doors to the family/dining room which is a real feature of this home.
The traditional areas with the original footprint of the house are complimented by an enormous wrap around extension. This features a study/workshop area with an attractive exposed brick wall. The family room/dining room is over 34 ft. in width with bespoke bi-fold doors in the family area and sliding doors in the dining area. This room has uninterrupted views onto the rear garden. The high quality kitchen is beautifully fitted with contrasting white gloss base units and grey composite stone work surfaces. There is an attractive Aga to side and the integrated appliances are by Miele to include three ovens, a further microwave/oven and dishwasher. Next to the sink is a filtered hot/cold water tap. The utility room is next to the kitchen and houses the tank and the boiler. Downstairs is complete with a large guest WC located off the entrance hall.
To the first floor the bright and very spacious landing area provides access to the bedrooms. Bedroom two and bedroom four are located to the rear of the property with views to the garden. The large shower room adjoins these two rooms. Bedroom three is of great size, in excess of 16 ft in length, and features a large bay window. Next to bedroom three is the dressing room with bespoke built in units, drawers and hanging rails. The first floor is complete with two further double bedrooms and a large shower-room with his and hers sinks.
The principal bedroom is located on the top floor of the property. It has the feeling and character of a New York loft space with multiple roof windows and various spaces within the bedroom for wardrobes and dressing areas. There are also numerous spotlights and ceiling speakers. The en-suite bathroom is beautiful with an egg shell, freestanding bath, his and her sinks and attractive contrasting wall and floor tiles.
To the rear the garden is flat and of great size. There is a high amount of seclusion to garden provided by the high trees and hedges bordering the garden and a central lawn area. There is a large block paved patio area bisecting the house and the lawn garden area that makes for a great dining and relaxing space. Low level exterior lighting around the garden is a further feature.
To the front of the property there is a carriage driveway that has been recently tarmacked and three areas within the front garden featuring a variety of shrubs and plants.
