  • Entered via a traditional front door with leaded stained panes into a generous hallway with turning stairs to the first floor, parquet floor, beautiful stained glass window to the side and doors to the principal reception rooms.

    The front reception rooms have been knocked through into one with a feature fireplace at each end with wood burning stoves and bay window to the front. It is bursting with original features including a Welsh oak floor, coving, ceiling mouldings, picture rails and plate stands.

    Also off the hall is a large open plan kitchen/dining area where you will find a beautiful fitted kitchen with an island incorporating a wine fridge, wall and base units and granite worktop over. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, corner sink and drainer and a Rangemaster. The dining area is substantial with tiled floor and French doors set into a bay opening onto the rear garden. A great area to sit outside under the verandah.

    To the first floor, is a spacious landing with stained glass window to the side. The principal bedroom has a bay window to the rear, feature fireplace and a large en suite bathroom with a roll-top bath, separate shower, wc and wash hand basin.

    The other two bedrooms to this floor both have feature fireplaces and windows to the front. The family bathroom has a suite comprising a p-shaped bath with shower over, wash hand basin and large storage cupboard. There is a separate wc with wash hand basin.

    To the top floor are 2 further bedrooms, both with Velux roof-lights and ample fitted storage. They share a bathroom with wc, wash hand basin and bath with shower over.

    Outside, the garage at the rear has been converted and extended to create a versatile space, currently used as an office and Summer house. There are bi-folding doors opening onto a seating area. A couple of steps take you up to a central room and to the top is an office with French doors opening onto decking. There is also a wc.

    The rear garden is fully enclosed and mature with a lovely paved seating area under a glass verandah accessed from the dining area. The middle tier has a lawn with shrub borders and to the top is a decked area, ideal for al fresco dining.

An impeccable example of a period home in the heart of Penylan; they don;t get much better than this!
