Elegant and impressive Victorian family home set on Southborough Common and well located for schools, road and rail networks.
Fountain House is an impressive Victorian family home which has been the subject of refurbishing and remodeling by the present owners and provides versatile and beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three floors. The original features have been enhanced by modern embellishments which include a bespoke kitchen, stylish bathrooms suites, multi-pane sash windows (some with shutters), encaustic tiling and attractive fireplaces, all complemented by an attractive colour pallet. The property has charming and established gardens which provide an attractive backdrop together with views over The Common to the rear. Also of note is the detached garage with a store room to one side.
The principal reception rooms provide versatile areas for both formal entertaining and family living, and comprise a spacious double aspect drawing room with a wood burning stove and an adjoining sitting room with a fireplace, an outlook and direct access to the rear terrace.
The double aspect kitchen/dining/family room is a superb space for everyday living and features charming arched windows and door to the rear terrace and an attractive window seat, set within a bay, overlooking the front garden. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of bespoke cupboards with a matching island unit and a range of appliances including a Smeg range cooker and a wine fridge.
