About this property

  • Located in this sought-after area, 21 Broadwater Down is an imposing detached period property that was divided into six apartments in the late-20th century. Forming the front portion of the ground floor, with direct access to a delightful private garden, Flat 1 is elegantly proportioned and beautifully presented throughout.

    The apartment has been extended historically to provide well-appointed accommodation arranged to make the most of the view over the private garden from the principal rooms. There are attractive period features throughout, including folding shutters, exposed floorboards, decorative coving, and deep skirting boards which add to the character, whilst good ceiling heights and generous bay windows combine to give a light and airy feel.

    The spacious sitting room has a full-height square bay window to the garden and a fireplace with a painted wood surround, cast iron slips, and a slate hearth. The kitchen/dining room has a vaulted ceiling incorporating two roof lights and French windows that frame the pretty outlook over the garden. The kitchen/diner is fitted with pale wood units, with a peninsula unit separating the kitchen and dining areas. A walk-in larder fitted with shelving offers ample storage.

    The principal bedroom with en suite has a full-height window bay again offering a wonderful view of the garden. A further double bedroom and bathroom complete the accommodation.

    21 Broadwater Down is set well back from the road, with a shared driveway that also serves High Birch to the rear. Allocated residents' and visitors' parking is provided to the side of the driveway. To the rear, the private garden can be accessed directly from the kitchen/dining room and comprises a gravel terrace spanning the front elevation with steps down to a level area of lawn. There is a useful garden studio with power and insulation that could be used as a home office or workshop. The cellar store is accessed via steps leading down from the driveway, to the side of the building. An ornamental pond sits towards the western boundary whilst the surrounding borders are well stocked giving seasonal colour throughout the year. The front and side boundaries are formed of timber trellising supporting climbing roses and clematis. A gate in the side trellis leads to the parking area screened by established shrubs and climbers.

You cannot help but be impressed by the wonderful proportions this flat offers, a true sense of grandeur but on a manageable scale, I love the scale of the windows and the view over the garden, it's hard to believe you are so close to the town.
