Detached Edwardian house with south facing garden.
Mandeville House is a handsome and spacious double fronted townhouse which enjoys a commanding position towards the top end of Borough Lane and on the corner of Mandeville Road.
Of brick elevations beneath the tiled roof, the wonderful symmetrical frontage includes two wide double height square bay windows, an arched entrance porch and a pitched gable to the upper floor. There are some super period features throughout including sash windows, a variety of fireplaces, deep skirting boards and picture rails.
This is a delightful, welcoming family home with versatile accommodation and the potential for seven bedrooms.
There is a block paved drive with parking area to the front of the house and also garaging to the far end of the garden.
The light hall with stairs to the upper floors (and door to the rear garden, cloakroom and cellar) leads to the principal reception rooms.
To the left is the double aspect drawing room with bay window to front and an open fireplace with painted surround and mantle and wooden flooring. To the right is the elegant dining room - again having a wide bay window, wooden flooring, a fireplace with substantial slate surround and mantle, and a tall arched recess.
There is also a connecting door from here to the breakfast room with its tall pine store cupboards, window to the rear, and this area is open to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units, cupboards and drawers, an electric oven, gas hob, integrated under counter fridge and space for a dishwasher. There is a window to the front and a part glazed door to the rear garden from here giving access to the external utility room.
From the rear of the hall to the left is the south facing sitting room with its bay window overlooking the garden, an open fireplace with painted surround and mantle and wooden flooring. There is a cloakroom at the far end of the hall and access to the useful cellar with storage.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a smaller bedroom or study the larger two rooms each have a wide bay window to the front and there is also a family bathroom with separate bath and shower and adjacent cloakroom on this floor.
On the second floor there are three further bedrooms within the eaves one having a double aspect and the views to the front are especially far-reaching over the rooves of the town and beyond. A second family bathroom with eaves storage completes the upper floor accommodation.
The attached fully dimensioned floor plan further illustrates the internal layout of the accommodation.
