A beautiful and spacious period family home with lift.
An extended, spacious period semi-detached home of considerable character, incorporating many original features including high ceilings, open fireplaces and stripped doors and joinery. The property has been sensitively modernised in recent years and now offers an appealing blend of period charm and modern convenience.
The property is accessed through an attractive leaded light entrance door leading to a large entrance hallway with original wooden flooring. The spacious sitting room is to the front of the property and boasts a stunning cast iron Art Nouveau style fireplace with tiled insert and hearth and wooden ornate surround, a large bay window that floods the room with natural light and high ceilings with decorative relief and picture rails typical of the period. The family room again has a feature fireplace, picture rails and has access to the dining room. This room has been extended and has a large roof window and double doors providing access onto the rear garden. The bright and sizeable kitchen/ breakfast room adjoins the dining room and is therefore also situated at the rear of the property. The kitchen has been refitted recently in a shaker style and benefits from plenty of worktop space, large island unit, attractive butler sink and range cooker. There is a very useful utility room off the kitchen and has access to the family room. The ground floor is completed with a very spacious guest cloakroom which is a room in itself, complete with feature fireplace and window to side. The vendor has replaced all of the downstairs radiators with iron column radiators. Also accessed from the hallway is the large cellar which offers a good ceiling height, sectioned off area with a sink, ideal as a washing room and furthermore there is natural light from the bay window.
The first floor has three very large double bedrooms and a fourth single bedroom all with feature fireplaces. The principal bedroom has access to a contemporary en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has been attractively refitted with a free standing, claw foot bathtub, a high level WC, wash hand basin and cast iron feature fireplace. There is a lift to the first floor, from the family room, that can remain or be removed dependent on a buyer's preference.
To the second floor the loft has been converted in 2012 to provide a further large double bedroom with en-suite shower room. The roof was also replaced at this time.
To the front there is a block paved driveway for off street parking and side access to the garden. To the rear is a very large and secluded garden with a lovely South facing aspect, mainly laid to lawn with natural Indian sandstone patio area bordering the property. The trampoline that is recessed into the ground and the garden playframe will be included in the sale.

A useful and unusual bonus to have a lift in a house of this period.Christopher Gann
