GUIDE PRICE £1,450,000-£1,650,000.
A superb opportunity to acquire this substantial family home, which offers approximately 2,693 sq ft of very well-presented living accommodation set across four floors. Dating back to circa 1840s, it boasts regency style architecture, and retains many period features internally, including original working shutters to the ground floor, intricate cornicing to the ceilings, plus solid oak flooring downstairs with high skirting boards. The owners have extensively renovated and upgraded the property, at considerable expense, over recent years, with many displays of bespoke joinery and lighting systems, a water softener, and an abundance of electrical sockets throughout, all of which really help enhance the overall living experience.
With energy costs rising dramatically, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn the home benefits from a C rating on the energy performance certificate, mainly as a result of extensive double glazing and upgraded insulation, which also keeps the house incredibly well sound proofed. The roof structure lends itself to the installation of both water heating and photovoltaic solar panels.
Also worth noting is the rarity of this this type of period property, with many similar surrounding homes having been converted and divided into individual apartments. Internally, the property benefits from various tasteful upgrades and impressive décor. There are several sky lights through the hallways, which allow masses of natural light through, giving a really nice feeling of space and brightness. Upon entering, you are greeted by a vast hallway, which provides access into a stunning dual aspect reception room - the perfect space for entertaining friends and family.
The lower ground floor really is the heart of this amazing family home, which has been cleverly extended, encompassing a sizeable glass atrium and provides access out to the rear garden. There is a spacious living / dining area, leading off into a sizeable, fitted kitchen which offers a range of integrated appliances. The lower ground floor also features a laundry room, a separate shower room with a utility room beyond housing the boiler and hot water tank etc., a wine cellar, plus a large storage area. There is a further large room with its own external access to the front, which could be used as a work-at-home office, a formal dining room, games/TV room or a fifth bedroom (with the shower room next door).
The first floor boasts the principal bedroom, which features bespoke joinery and fitted wardrobes with under the stairs storage for suitcases etc., in addition to a luxurious en-suite with Jacuzzi bath and his & her wash basins. There is also another large double bedroom, and family bathroom. Moving to the upper floor, there are two impressive double bedroom suites, both of which feature walk in wardrobes and private shower rooms. A sky light above the landing provides abundant natural light and there is further storage above the stairs. Externally there is a large, gated driveway at the front offering off street parking for several vehicles, and a stunning 120 ft rear garden, with sizeable patios offering space for formal and informal seating for dining al fresco, also offering outside lighting. The garden has a variety of mature trees, plants and attractive shrubberies, plus a further paved patio to the rear, where you will find two large sheds.
The property is offered with no onward chain, and there is also the opportunity to acquire the adjoining two bedroom freehold property subject to negotiations, which is also owned by the vendors.
