About this property

  • 73 Haywards Road is a handsome semi-detached Victorian home, believed to date from around 1900 and characterised by attractive brick elevations, with red brick window dressings and a two-storey bay. The house is very well presented, having been recently updated/decorated with a new kitchen, new suites in the family bathroom and cloakroom, and flooring in the hall and reception room. The result is an excellent family home with a pleasing mix of modern fittings and period features including high ceilings, dado and picture rails and some charming feature fireplaces, additionally benefitting from a detached cabin-style garden room ideal for home working or outside entertaining.

    The full extent of the house extends to 1,734 square feet and can be seen on the floor plan that follows. The front door opens to an elegant entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor; a door opens to the sitting and dining room which has a bay window fitted with plantation shutters to the front aspect, and a cast iron feature fireplace. The kitchen has been recently re-fitted with a range of white, shaker-style units and display cupboards, with wood-effect worktops, a range cooker and space for a small breakfast table; the kitchen is served by the utility room beyond. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms, all with pretty cast iron feature fireplaces and wood-effect floor flooring, and a family bathroom. A further staircase rises to the second floor principal suite, comprising a spacious dual-aspect bedroom with en suite shower room.

    Outside, the property has off-street parking for up to three cars on the block paved driveway to the front. There is gated access to the mature and enclosed rear garden, where a large paved terrace lies adjacent to the house, part covered by a vine-clad pergola offering a lovely spot for al fresco dining. Beyond the terrace is an expanse of level lawn edged by flower and shrub borders, with a stepping-stone path leading to the double-glazed detached office, which has power and data cabling connected, and the adjoining garden store lying to the far eastern end of the garden.
