An imposing, period, detached residence in the highly sought after area of Llandaff.
Englemere is a red brick, detached home of stature, with period features galore including architectural design elements including a turret and detailed stonework.
To the front is a generous block paved driveway, with parking for numerous vehicles, walled to the road with mature trees, shrubs and lawn.
Entered via double doors into a porch that leads to the central entrance hallway with a substantial turning staircase to the first floor.
The layout is traditional with a formal dining room, drawing room, second reception room, and conservatory. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room which requires installing, but is a great space. There are two downstairs wc's, a pantry, utility room and back staircase to the first floor.
Upstairs, there is a generous landing with stained glass windows to the front and sides.
There are six bedrooms, all serviced by a family bathroom.
Outside, there are beautifully landscaped and manicured gardens, with lawn with paved pathways, shrubs and trees aplenty, and above all, beautifully private. There is also a Victorian style greenhouse.
The generous coach house is currently used for garaging and storage, but ripe for conversion to become an annex, gymnasium. There is a large space to the ground floor and an additional room above. Attached to the coach house is the boiler room, workshop, woodstore and outside wc.
Englemere is a once in a generation house to come to the market, and is in need of modernisation and renovation.
I love the period features on this once in a generation house. It's such a great location too.James ThomasProperty agent
