Family living in the heart of Sneyd Park.
A detached family house constructed in the mid-1960s and extended during the subsequent years. The property offers a significant family footprint offering versatility and has been well maintained during the 26 year tenure of the present owners. There are double glazed windows throughout providing solar gain and views extend towards the Nature Reserve in Sneyd Park and over the immediate established gardens. Situated in a family oriented cul-de-sac there is a central island which has Town Green Status and the property is set back from the road offering seclusion.
The reception hall is the central axis with a rising staircase to the galleried landing above. There is a UPVC front door, a cloakroom and the various principal rooms lie directly off. The drawing room is dual aspect with a picture window over the front elevation and a Minster style fireplace, there is a sliding door to the rear terrace. Adjacent and accessed via interconnecting double doors is the dining room. The sitting room which was a more contemporary extension is large enough to accommodate a baby grand piano. The breakfast room lies beyond the sitting room and links with the kitchen which includes a range of fitted wall and base units and appliances. The utility room houses the gas fired boiler which supplies the domestic hot water and central heating and there is also plumbing for a washing machine and space for a freezer. There is a study and a study area on the hall and first floors respectively, which provide excellent working facilities. Concluding the ground floor is the cloakroom.
Located off the first floor landing are five good sized bedrooms served by the family bathroom and two en suite facilities. There is also useful storage available via a loft hatch. The principal bedroom is sizable with built in wardrobes, a picture window over the front elevation and beyond an en suite bathroom. The adjacent guest bedroom also has an en suite shower room and the remaining bedrooms also include built in wardrobes.
The drive to the front leads to the integrated garage and there is ample tandem parking. The front garden has a large level lawn and there are established Beech hedges either side and a Blue Atlantic Cedar and a Pinus Ponderosa which are magnificent specimens. The small copse at the head of the drive provides privacy. The rear garden is tiered with a large terrace off the kitchen/breakfast room which includes an ornamental pond. Steps lead up to a lawned area where there is a kitchen garden and a further strip with elevated views and a wooded backdrop of Beech trees (not in the curtilage). There is a wide variety of established plants, shrubs and fruit trees notably an Acer, Magnolia and Camellias.
