About this property

  • This wonderful two bedroom Garden Flat is situated on Effingham Road, within proximity of St. Andrews Park and the popular Gloucester Road with an array of amenity. The apartment enjoys excellent solar gain due to the sunny orientation and a number of period features have been retained throughout.

    The property can be accessed via a communal entrance hall (shared with one other property) or a private entrance via the enclosed garden. A generous sitting room lies at the front elevation with deep bay window, picture rails, cornicing and a gas fireplace with wooden surround and slate hearth. This space enjoys a pleasant outlook over the front garden and benefits from afternoon/evening sun due to the westerly orientation. Adjacent is the guest bedroom with further features including picture rails, cornicing and a cast-iron radiator.

    The hall wraps around the original staircase and opens into the dining room. Wood flooring runs underfoot and a bright colour palette has been adopted, adding to the light and bright interior. The dining room has an opening into the kitchen, which includes a range of wall and base units, solid wood block worktops, in-built oven and four ring gas hob with extractor above and space for free standing appliances. A useful storage cupboard houses the gas boiler and provides space for a washing machine. Beyond is the bathroom with shower over the bath, low level WC, basin and heated towel rail. The generous principal bedroom has a deep bay window, picture rails, ceiling rose and cornicing. There is an open fireplace with a wooden surround and slate hearth. This space benefits from ample natural light due to the southerly orientation.

    There are gardens to the front and rear. The front garden is west facing, enjoying the afternoon/evening sun. The boundaries could be built up to provide more privacy if required. The rear garden is private with new fencing and enjoys a southerly aspect. There is a raised patio area, perfect for al fresco dining, and a number of mature plants and trees providing privacy. The rear garden has an outbuilding which provides useful storage space and a single door leads to the garage, measuring approximately 6.1m x 3m, with power, lighting and double doors leading to a driveway with off road parking for two vehicles.

A charming period home with an abundance of outside space, off road parking and garaging. I love the retained period features throughout, in particular the original wood flooring.
