    Edwardian semi-detached house on the south side of the city

    About this property

    • This stunning three-storey, semi-detached property dates to 1901 and is situated on the desirable south side of the city. The house has been thoughtfully extended and reconfigured, and while it has been modernized with double glazing throughout, it retains an abundance of original period features. Approached behind a charming dwarf wall with a wrought iron gate, the property welcomes you with Victorian tiles leading to a panelled front door, adorned with a stained glass fan light. The front garden boasts a delightful lavender parterre set within a gravelled area.

      Upon entering, the hall showcases beautiful stripped wood floors, with clever windows introducing natural light from the adjoining double reception room. This space is anchored by a gas fireplace from Ivett and Reed, featuring attractive green tiles chosen to match the house's construction period.

      The exceptional kitchen and breakfast room is a highlight, fitted with wall and floor-mounted units and reclaimed terracotta tiles from Fired Earth. The kitchen is equipped with a Silestone work surface, breakfast bar, John Lewis cabinetry, and a range of high-end appliances including a Rangemaster oven with a five-ring gas hob and double electric oven, a Miele fitted dishwasher, a Bosch microwave, and a Villeroy & Boch double butler sink. There is a seating area at the rear with a glazed wall and double French doors opening onto the garden.

      A wide staircase leads to the first floor, which comprises three generously sized bedrooms and a family bathroom featuring white sanitary ware. The second floor houses two further bedrooms, one of which is the main bedroom which includes an ensuite shower room and a Juliet balcony. The fifth bedroom, sizable enough to accommodate a double bed, is perfect as an office, benefiting from a charming corner window that floods the room with light.

      The property offers convenient side access to the long rear garden, which features a raised bed on one side interspersed with mature shrubs and herbaceous borders. The garden includes a lawned area, play spaces, and a large shed with ambient lighting that highlights some of the specimen trees.
