About this property

  • 65 Fonnereau Road is an impressive Grade II listed town house built in a Georgian style of gault brick under a slate roof. The house is believed to date back to the early 19th century and is situated in a conservation area surrounded by a number of similar houses that retain their traditional materials and detailing.

    The house has been well maintained by the current owners and has been extended at the rear now providing a spacious, light and airy snug area which open up into a kitchen/breakfast room with bi-fold doors out on to the raised terrace area, perfect for al fresco dining.

    The property benefits from a wealth of period features including sash windows, shutters, panelled doors and good ceiling heights. The accommodation comprises a spacious entrance hall, which leads through to the four main reception rooms. The lower ground floor benefits from a gym, large laundry room, cellar, two store rooms and a spacious work shop.

    The first floor is reached via a handsome staircase with five double bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms (one ensuite) and a cloakroom on the first floor. A further three bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen are on the second floor.

    The property is approached through a pierced lattice Suffolk brick wall with piers either side, giving access to the wide paved drive, which provides ample parking for a number of vehicles. There is a purpose built lockable bike shed which can store 2-3
    bikes. The rear south facing garden is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and hedging which offers the property a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The garage is located to the far southern boundary of the property with access onto High Street.

I've walked past this house many times on the way to Christchurch Park but had no idea how big it was. The space and light-filled rooms are really impressive and the garden to the south is delightful.
