An exceptional city house close to the City Centre, railway station and schools.
The property was built in 1996, using locally sourced Michelmersh bricks and in an 'Arts & Crafts' style, with leaded light windows under a handmade Keymer clay tiled roof. The house holds a great deal of individual charm and character, whilst providing a low maintenance and annual running cost.
The interior space is over 2300 sq ft, with versatile accommodation over three floors, ideally suited to the demands of modern day living. The property has a light and airy feel to the interior. The principal rooms are of excellent proportions, with a lovely dual aspect drawing room, that has twin 'Juliet' style balconies, a gas fire set within a Pembroke stone hearth and surround; an adjoining study; a formal dining room and a fabulous open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room with separate utility/boot room. The bedrooms are arranged over the ground and upper floors, each with fitted wardrobes and the main bedroom with an en suite. On a practical note, the property has an array of good accessible storage throughout.
The property has an attractive gravel driveway, that provides off road parking for several cars. There is potential for a separate detached double garage as previous planning permission has been granted. The frontage to the house is screened by an established evergreen Laurel hedge with a stone paved pathway leading to the front entrance porch. A side gate leads down to a delightful south and west facing garden, that has well stocked shrub borders, a wide expanse of a well maintained lawn and a superb paviour terrace ideal for 'al fresco' style entertainment.
