About this property

  • This immaculate three-storey, three double bedroom Victorian family home is situated on Raleigh Road only 500 yards from popular North Street and just over half a mile from Wapping Wharf. The house spans three floors, within which period proportions seamlessly blend with contemporary design to create a well-balanced home that maximises light and space.

    The entrance hall leads to a bay-fronted sitting room at the front elevation, bathed in light due to its southerly orientation and open outlook along the terrace of Leighton Road. This space includes a number of retained period features including an elegant ceiling rose, coving, picture rails and Victorian skirting boards. Along the hall, a further reception room is currently used as a home office but would make a perfect play room or secondary TV room. There is useful shelving in the alcoves and the coving continues within this room. At the rear of the ground floor is the open-plan kitchen/dining/family room – a sociable space with a perfect flow out to the rear garden via bi-fold doors. The kitchen includes a range of wall and base units, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher, four ring gas hob and extractor above. There is plenty of space for dining and further seating within the boxed bay window at the side elevation.

    Stairs rise to the first floor with two of the three bedrooms found on this level. A generously proportioned guest bedroom is positioned at the front elevation with bay window and adjacent is a further double bedroom. The family bathroom is at the rear of the first floor plan and home to a freestanding bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin. Completing this level is a useful utility room housing the Worcester boiler and space for washing facilities.

    On the top floor, the principal bedroom enjoys ample solar gain via the Juliet balcony at the rear. A stylish en-suite includes a rainfall shower, WC and basin. Adjacent and completing this room is a large walk-in wardrobe/storage room with Velux window above.

    The level rear garden is predominantly paved and enclosed by boundary walls and fencing. There are a number of planted shrubs providing an ever-changing seasonal backdrop and space at the side of the property for external storage.

Easy on the eye, this stylish family home combines period detail allied with contemporary living. I love the open outlook at the front elevation which is a rarity within Southville.
