Striking late Victorian family home in a central location.
Approached by a gravel driveway, this imposing period house retains many of its original features. These include some intricate detailing such as ornate plasterwork, bay windows and a combination of open and cast iron fireplaces with some colourful in-set tiling.
Built in the late Victorian era but altered and extended in more recent years the house combines turn of the century grandeur and elegance, to more than meet the demands of modern living.
From the moment you walk through the front door this home invites you in. The impressive entrance hall flooded with light is a key feature of the house and absolutely ideal for entertaining and welcoming friends and family into your home.
The formal dining room retains original character, visible in the large bay window and fireplace as the focal point.
There are two further reception rooms, one currently used as a TV room, ideal for relaxing with the family on cosy winter nights. There is also a fire place and fitted storage cupboards and book cases to either side. The second reception at the back of the house is currently used as the drawing room and is a quiet sanctuary with French doors opening out to the garden.
The kitchen/ breakfast room fitted with off white units and contrasting black granite worktops, has been perfectly designed for family living and informal dining. There is a sociable central island and access to a little courtyard. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility room with access out to the front garden.
The guest cloakroom is located off the entrance hallway.
A turning staircase leads you up to the first floor landing where there is the main bedroom, the current owners have created a dressing room from one of the other bedrooms, making this a luxury bedroom suite with en suite shower room. Two further generous bedrooms, one with access to eaves storage, and an elegant family bathroom complete the accommodation on this floor.
On the second floor are two bedrooms and a bright bathroom. There is also a loft room, this floor could be the ideal place for teenagers.
Outside the garden is well screened from neighbouring houses and there is a large patio area ideal for al fresco entertaining. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn with a central water feature, surrounded by mature trees and shrub borders and a path leading you to the home studio and garage.

I love the late Victorian period, the proportions are so elegant and the space always light and airy. The work the current owners have done only exemplifies this.Olivia Perez
