Period family home close to North Street and Wapping Wharf.
A three-storey four bedroom Victorian family home with well-balanced accommodation only 350 yards from popular North Street. The property has been extended and enhanced throughout by the current owners and enjoys a high degree of natural light due to its sunny orientation.
A welcoming entrance hall provides access to a bay-fronted sitting room, previously two rooms which have been opened up, measuring approximately 8.3m x 3.6m with space for seating and a play area to the rear. A number of period features have been retained including coving and ceiling rose. A single door at the rear of the sitting room opens into the open-plan kitchen/dining room, also accessed via the hallway. The kitchen/dining room is the heart of the home and has been updated in recent years with herringbone flooring underfoot, ample wall and base units, separate utility room and bi-fold doors opening out to the level rear garden. There is an abundance of solar gain via the bi-fold doors and two skylights above.
Stairs rise to the first floor with three of the four bedrooms found on this level. Bedroom two is positioned at the front elevation; a generous room with ample in-built storage. A stylish three-piece family bathroom serves the bedrooms on this level with shower over bath, low-level WC and wash hand basin. The principal bedroom is on the top floor and is served by an en-suite shower room and there is plenty of eaves storage.
The south-facing rear garden is low-maintenance with a small paved area leading to an artificial lawn. Enclosed by boundary walls and fencing with a number of shrubs at the rear border and a useful storage unit. There is secure gated access at the rear accessed via Birch Road. The property is fronted by a small paved area which includes a hand-built bike-storage unit.

A fine example of a period family home in the heart of Southville. I love the open-plan kitchen/dining room at the rear of the home which has a perfect flow onto the south-facing garden.Troy Budd
