A prestigious Arts and Crafts home in this highly sought after road.
A wonderful family home built in the early 20th century and in the Arts and Crafts style. The property stands within one of the most spectacular plots with sunny orientations and is located within this highly sought after road. Owned by the same family for many years and enjoyed by three generations, there is three storey accommodation with large principal rooms and adaptable bedrooms. Some enhancements have been made during their tenure including partial double glazing and a modern heating system, yet plenty of the original detail remains. There are Herringbone oak floors, some stained and leaded windows with heraldic motifs and inglenooks within the principal rooms. The property offers scope for prospective buyers to create their own bespoke space.
The dining hall is considered the central axis, generous in scale, dual aspect and with a fire place. There are traditional beamed ceilings and this is closely allied to the kitchen/breakfast room and pantry. There are two reception rooms both of which are dual aspect, the drawing room to the front incudes a deep square bay overlooking the front elevation and an inglenook with a more contemporary Minster fire. Beyond is a further reception room, oak panelled and with doors to the raised terrace which surveys the rear gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room, whilst functional includes the original dresser and sits adjacent to the pantry and cold store. Further again is the large utility and additional stores and subject to consents there is scope for this combined area.
There are eight bedrooms arranged over the first and top floors with a galleried landing and linen store. The bedrooms offer differing views and orientations with a Jack and Jill shower room available to bedrooms one and two in addition to a timber balustraded and linked balcony. Fireplaces remain within three of the bedrooms and there is also a family bathroom with separate WC. The top floor is versatile with four bedrooms some eaves storage and dormer windows with elevated views.
Undoubtedly one of the most salient features of this wonderful home is the significant plot. There are manicured lawned gardens on two sides, which are level and bounded by mature hedge rows, historically they have been used for a croquet lawn and tennis court. There are structured paved paths and a terrace which overlooks and enjoys the evening sunsets with a westerly orientation. A detached garage to the side of the property has an electrically operated up and over door and the drive provides turning and plenty of car parking opportunities.
