Wonderful house with enormous potential situated in the middle of a very well positioned plot.
17 Avenue Road is offered to the market for the first time in nearly 50 years and is an impressive six bedroom family home with multiple reception rooms fantastically positioned within its 0.68 acres of gardens and grounds.
The house was originally built in 1909 by the renowned architect James S Cooper as part of the Gilbey Estate. The current owner's family have been in occupation since 1976. (Further history is available by request) Over the years there have been changes made to the house, but many original features remain. Subject to planning, there is potential for extension.
Accessed up a driveway through gates, the house is entered through an inviting porch leading to a very generous hallway/reception room. The main reception rooms are very well arranged around the hallway including the family room and dining room both of which have beautiful bay windows. To the rear of the house is the kitchen breakfast room which leads to the utility/boiler room and study beyond. There is also a shower room and additional WC on the ground floor ideal for guests or those needing to avoid stairs. There are two staircases leading to the second floor, the main case leading to the main bedrooms. The second leading up to the self-contained annex - this arrangement is ideal for multi generation living. On the lower ground floor there is a good size cellar.
On the second floor, the bedrooms and bathroom are again very well arranged around the central landing. All the bedrooms have lovely views over the gardens and grounds, three of which have dual aspect windows. The east of the second floor, there is a self contained studio flat with large shower room and separate kitchen.
Outside the house enjoys panoramic views of the gardens and grounds which are very well maintained and include mature tree lines for additional privacy. At the rear of the house there was once a grass tennis court.
There is a patio terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining.
The carport is neatly positioned to the right of the house with a back door leading into the house.
The driveway is very generous and parking spaces for multiple vehicles.
