About this property

  • 15 Tenison Avenue is a semi-detached town house with wide double bay windows constructed around the turn of the 20th Century of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof.

    The property which is laid out over three floors and measures approximately 2,162 square feet and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplan.

    This attractive house is approached across a driveway with parking for one car leading to a panelled front door with stained glass fan light. The door opens into a vestibule with Victorian style tiles and beyond into the hallway which communicates with the principal rooms on the ground floor. On the left of the hall there are two good reception rooms both with working fireplaces. The first has a square bay, attractive cornices gas fireplace and shelving on either side of the chimney breast. Similarly the second has a working fireplace, storage and interconnecting glass doors to the kitchen breakfast room.

    To the rear is a large kitchen breakfast room with access through French doors to the rear garden, which alongside three Velux windows in the vaulted ceiling and rear windows, affords this room plenty of natural light. The Shaker style kitchen has a wide range of floor and wall mounted units, fitted dishwasher, and Britannia range with five ring gas hob with polished granite worktops. There is a deep and very useful pantry cupboard with and space for an American style fridge freezer. A cloakroom with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier and a good size wine cellar complete the ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs on the first floor there are three well-proportioned bedrooms with the rear bedroom with access on to a small south facing terrace. There is modern family bathroom with white sanitaryware and a separate shower. A further bedroom currently used as a study has plumbing for a further bathroom if required.

    On the second floor there are two further bedrooms along with a bathroom and separate small shower room.

    The property which attracts a great deal of natural light retains many original features such as ceiling cornicing, panelled doors, stain glass windows, picture rails and some fireplaces.
    The rear garden is fully enclosed, south facing and has a terrace which wraps around the house. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a wooden shed to one side and has a number of mature shrubs and plants.
