About this property

  • 30 Glisson Road is a Victorian three storey bay fronted semi-detached townhouse within this desirable and ever popular residential area within close proximity to the train station. The property, which has been extended and refurbished by the previous owners but retains a plethora of original features, is approached behind a dwarf wall with a mature hedge. A Victorian tiled path leads to a panelled front door beneath a glazed fanlight. The house opens into a wide hallway with high ceilings with moulded cornicing, picture rail, understairs storage cupboard, a recess with coat hooks, and stripped wooden flooring and a concealed radiator. To the right of the hall is a well-proportioned drawing room with a bay window with shutters to the front and floating shelves to either side of a contemporary open gas fireplace with raised stone hearth.

    To the rear the house opens into a large reception room with a multitude of uses, currently used as a dining room. A pair of glazed panelled double doors and a sash window allow in plenty of natural light and enhances the stripped wood floors and recessed feature fireplace. Beyond is an exceptional south-east facing kitchen breakfast room, which is further enhanced with travertine flooring, built in speakers, a large set of bi-folding doors with views over the garden, large roof lantern and underfloor heating. The well-appointed kitchen has a range of modern wall and floor mounted units and deep Corian work surfaces in addition to a more traditional larder cupboard. The kitchen is fully equipped with German appliances by Neff incorporating a brushed stainless electric fan oven, combination microwave/steaming oven, plate warming drawer, dishwasher, freezer, refrigerator. There is a central island unit again with deep Corian working surfaces and integrated wine cooler, two ring gas induction hob with Airforce hood. A cloakroom, large study and large utility room completes the downstairs accommodation.

    A wide staircase leads to the first floor landing which communicates with three well-proportioned bedrooms. Of particular note is the exceptional bay fronted principal bedroom with window shutters and en suite shower room. There is a family bathroom with bath and shower over with high quality white sanitary ware. A staircase leads to the top floor with two good bedrooms and walk-in storage.

    Outside the south-east facing garden has been laid mainly to lawn with a patio area for evening light at one end and a wooden deck across the rear of the house. There is also a large work and/or bike storage room at the front of the house which could be made smaller to accommodate a larger car on the driveway.
