    About this property

    • St Edmunds is an outstanding landmark detached house in one of the town's most sought after private addresses, which offers fabulous accommodation extending to about 6,000 square feet including the cellar. Believed to have been built in 1908 with rendered and painted elevations under a slate tiled roof, the property exhibits some Arts & Crafts influences with painted leaded light windows and intricate lead work.

      The plot is accessed via a pair of wrought iron electric gates to a wide tarmac driveway providing ample parking for numerous vehicles. Immediately to the right is the recently constructed coach house, which comprises space for three cars and a cloakroom, and with independent access to the first floor apartment which includes a bedroom, bathroom and open plan kitchen/living/dining space.

      Pathways lead either side of the house to the rear garden. Overall, the site extends to about 0.6 acres and is particularly well manicured with extensive lawns, high hedges, private terraces and heavily planted beds and borders.

      Internally, the house is particularly well presented with fabulously spacious accommodation. The principal reception rooms are located either side of the wide reception hall which features a stunning staircase to the first floor with a half landing window providing extra light. The double aspect drawing room is a wonderfully light and airy room with double doors to the dining room, a similarly light room, again being double aspect. Opposite the hall is a sitting room, again double aspect, and a cloakroom.

      The recently extended kitchen/breakfast/family room is a wonderful space extending to about 33' in length and enjoying bifold doors to the rear garden. The renovated kitchen includes a comprehensive range of cupboard and drawer units with island unit and peninsular. Adjacent is a fitted utility room, and the original garage with additional loft space above which offers further potential, subject to any necessary consents. In addition, from the hall, stairs lead down to the cellar/boiler room, which doubles as an excellent drying room.

      On the first floor are five double bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, and a family bathroom. Further stairs from the landing lead to the second floor which includes a further two bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and substantial eaves storage spaces.

    I love the brilliant coach house with three bays – and with the added feature of a one bedroom apartment above, all on one of the most sought after roads in Charlton Kings.
