Dating from 1852, 2 Chesham Knoll is an imposing Italianate style Victorian residence set within a generous 0.37 acre south facing plot. Lovingly maintained and beautifully presented throughout, the property offers intelligently designed and incredibly versatile accommodation, extending to 3,755 sq ft. The current owners have extensively yet sympathetically upgraded, extended and re-modelled the property during their tenure resulting in a stunning home which now seamlessly combines period charm and opulence with modern convenience. Period features include ornate ceiling cornicing, deep skirtings, picture rails, paneled doors, beautiful leaded stained glass and sash windows.
Approached along a York stone driveway providing ample parking and turning, there are garages to either side with electrically operated doors. Entered via an oak frame porch with attractive paneling through an oversized front door, the spectacular hallway features a stunning Minton tiled floor and a sweeping staircase with wrought iron balustrade. To the right of the hall a spacious fitted cloakroom in turn leads through to the downstairs WC. There are two formal reception rooms to the ground floor which enjoy elevated views over the gardens, feature oak parquet flooring and are linked by glazed double doors. The impressive drawing room features a beautiful original marble fireplace, particularly ornate cornicing and a butler's pantry whilst the dining room has French doors onto a raised south facing terrace. The ground floor is completed by an open plan dining kitchen fitted with hand painted in-frame' units, granite worksurfaces and a comprehensive range of appliances including Smeg range cooker, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
To the lower ground floor there is a spacious reception room which mirrors the dimensions of the drawing room above and features three sets of French doors onto the gardens. A study, fitted utility room, useful linen/storage cupboards and a beautifully appointed bath/shower room with Italian glass mosaic tiling completes the accommodation on this floor.
To the first floor a wonderful galleried landing leads to three well-proportioned double bedrooms with fitted furniture and a contemporary house shower room with twin wash hand basins. The principal bedroom is served by a contemporary en suite shower room.
Worthy of note is the separate one bedroom annexe which provides a spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen with part vaulted ceiling, mezzanine double bedroom, useful fitted storage and a modern shower room. This hugely versatile space would be perfect for a dependent relative, running a business from home, as an income producing asset or self-sufficient guest accommodation.
2 Chesham Knoll enjoys wonderfully private, mature and beautifully landscaped south facing gardens to the rear. A sweeping York stone path links the lower and upper lawns which are defined by established hedging, brick and dry-stone walling and Cheshire railings.
