    About this property

    • A delightful home, dating back to the 1940's, offering a unique blend of character with contemporary styling. The property has been sympathetically extended and renovated by the current owners with features including high ceilings, picture rails and fireplaces. An enclosed entrance porch leads into the reception hall, with a cloakroom, storage and wood flooring extending to the principal reception rooms. The study, with a front aspect, has a box bay window and an open brick fire as a central feature. Double glazed doors lead into the family room, with oak flooring and a built-in coats cupboard, which in turn opens into a fantastic kitchen/breakfast/dining room, with a built-in sound system and offering a superb space perfect for family life. The kitchen is impressive with a comprehensive array of gloss units complemented by quartz worktops. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, extractor, built in fridge and freezer and a five ring gas burner range cooker. Steps lead down to the living/dining area with York stone flooring and underfloor heating, which enjoys lovely views over the garden with bi-fold doors opening out on to the terrace. A wooden breakfast bar provides seating for four and a light lantern floods the room with natural light. A highlight is the original air raid shelter, cleverly integrated into the room. The original oak door gives access to a flight of steps that lead down to the oak-lined shelter with the original bunk beds, providing generous storage, ideal as a wine store. Adjacent to the kitchen is a fully fitted utility room with a double ‘butler' sink, wall and floor units, boiler, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer. On the other side of the hall is the sitting room, extending the length of the house, with an attractive stone fireplace with an open fire, and French doors opening on to the rear terrace and loggia. There is planning permission to extend this room (part of 15/06316/FUL already commenced).

      On the first floor, the galleried landing has access to the generous loft space via a cleverly concealed built-in ladder, storage cupboards and a large airing cupboard which houses the hot water cylinder. The principal bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are four further double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, a family bath/shower room and a night cloakroom.

      Outside
      The property is approached from a residential road over a block brick driveway with parking for several cars and an integrated garage with an electric up and over door. The front garden, enclosed with hedging and fencing, has flower and shrub borders and a sunken lawn area. Gated side access leads to the stunning rear garden which is a delight, offering a good deal of privacy and is a real feature of the house. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with extensive well stocked flower and shrub borders interspersed with a variety of trees, and enclosed with fencing. A large loggia and York stone terrace adjoins the rear of the house with stone edged raised beds and steps down to the lawn. There is a good sized storage cupboard accessed from the terrace and a door to the reception hall. A further terrace area outside the kitchen/breakfast/dining room provides the perfect spot to entertain or relax.
