    About this property

    • South Lawn is a magnificent Victorian family home, full of charm and original features, that has been a much-loved family home for the current owners for almost 35 years. This delightfully elegant property is unlisted, sitting within a significant plot, set back from the roadside with large front and rear gardens, off street parking, garage and a swimming pool.

      Arranged over four floors, the property is semi-detached with ashlar limestone façade and attractive fenestration on three sides. The property has been extended significantly in the past and has the benefit of a large two storey, limestone-built extension to the rear which houses the generous eat-in kitchen on the ground floor and a guest suite on the half landing to the first floor.

      The ground floor has an abundance of charm, with a delightful and bright entrance hall with tall ceilings and original cornicework that leads from the front door to the ornate and imposing staircase in the centre of the house. Two reception rooms are situated on this floor, including a large dining room with French doors out to the garden, and a delightful 21ft drawing room, filled with natural light, facing south with three large sash windows overlooking the front garden. The kitchen is a particularly charming and spacious room, with a gas-fired aga, built in units and views of the rear garden.

      The bedroom accommodation is well arranged over the first and second floors with all rooms enjoying generous proportions and attractive views of the surroundings. A self-contained guest suite is located on the half landing to the first floor, with a newly installed bathroom. The first floor provides three bedrooms,including the principal bedroom with en suite shower room and a separate WC. A further two bedrooms and bathroom are located on the top floor as well as plenty of under eaves storage.

      The lower floor of the house provides a large and light-filled sitting/family room, with views over the front garden, and a collection of useful rooms, including a utility room, stores and cellar. There is also stepped access to the rear garden from this floor.


      South Lawn is a highly impressive property, set back from the roadside in private and mature grounds. A gravel driveway leads from the road, past the front garden to off street parking at the front and side of the property. The driveway continues through a vehicular gate up the side of the rear garden to a single garage located at the rear of the plot.

      The rear garden is largely laid to lawn, with mature trees and borders providing excellent privacy and areas of interest, and a large patio located close to the house. Hidden from sight towards the rear of the garden is a heated swimming pool, surrounded by mature hedging.
