About this property

  • 16 Granville Road is an impressive family home of great character, believed to date from c.1870, and situated on this sought-after residential road, within a Conservation Area. This detached property offers elegant, versatile and well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors, with character features throughout and excellent areas for both formal entertaining and family living. Salient points include a stylish kitchen, modern bathroom suites, high ceilings, wood floors, attractive fireplaces, decorative coving and ceiling roses and sash windows. Also of note is a single garage, a parking area, a pretty walled rear garden and the property's excellent proximity to the station and High Street, being within 0.4 miles and 0.5 miles, respectively.

    A spacious and elegant entrance hall leads to the principal reception rooms, comprising a drawing room featuring a square bay window, an open fireplace and fitted bookcases, and an equally well-proportioned dining room, also with a square bay window and an attractive feature fireplace. A study adjoins the drawing room and has doors to the rear terrace.

    The bright and well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room is accessed via a pair of pocket doors from the dining room, and has views over and access to the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base units and a gas oven, with space for other appliances. A large pantry underneath the stairs provides further storage.

    A cloakroom and utility area complete the ground floor.

    The spacious, double aspect first floor landing provides access to four double bedrooms, one with a bank of fitted wardrobes, a well-appointed family bathroom and a modern shower room with twin basins.

    The property is approached via a pedestrian gate and a paved path, leading to the gabled porch and front door. The path is flanked on both sides by established, well-stocked beds enclosed by low retaining brick walls.

    Within the rear garden is a garage and a parking area, accessed by a set of gates.

    The walled rear garden is a real feature and creates a lovely backdrop to the property. A paved terrace spans the width of the property and creates an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. The remainder of the garden is laid to a level lawn, with well stocked borders planted with a variety of established shrubs, perennials, and specimen trees, providing year-round colour and interest. There is also a greenhouse.

To me, this is such an iconic house, in a wonderful location, with fantastic potential to make a dream family home, close to the station and town.
