About this property

  • 1 Barrow Road is a well-proportioned Arts and Crafts detached house extending to approximately 2,367 sq ft, constructed during the early 1930s. The property is set well back from the road, beyond a deep grassed verge, mature hedge and wide gravel driveway. Of particular note is the drawing room which is dual aspect and which includes a wide bay with French doors to the side garden while the dining room is also well proportioned and has a bay window overlooking the front. The large breakfast room which has ample room for a kitchen table is fitted with vintage cabinetry and polished stone work surfaces with a large utility room and access onto the terrace and gardens beyond. In between these rooms, there is a study/playroom with views over the garden. Beyond the kitchen, to the side, a path leads to a small annexe with a shower room and two further rooms beyond which could be used as an additional reception room, bedroom or family room.

    There are four large double bedrooms at first floor level and a principal with en suite bathroom and family bathroom.

    The property which attracts a great deal of natural light and retains many original features including panelled internal doors, parquet flooring, fireplaces and an original heavy oak arched entrance door, is set back from the road whilst the gravel driveway provides ample parking for a number of cars. The rear garden is fully enclosed and laid mostly to lawn beyond a wide paved terrace with a variety of tall, mature shrubbery and trees within deep well stocked borders. There is also a timber garden shed.

    Agents note – please be aware that the property is subject to the usual Trinity covenants. More details are available from Savills.
