    About this property

    • 6 Wester Coates Gardens is a handsome detached stone built Arts & Crafts style villa, dating from 1906. The property offers well-proportioned family accommodation throughout and, with aspects to north, south, east and west, there is plenty of natural light throughout the day.

      The house retains much of its original charm with a range of impressive period features including the original panelling in the hallway and reception rooms, delightful mantelpieces and detailed ceilings and cornices.

      The property caters for modern family needs, with superb family living and reception spaces throughout the ground floor. The front door opens to the vestibule and welcoming reception hall where there is a fireplace, original panelling and an impressive staircase which rises to the upper floor. The sitting room faces south and west with a large bay window which floods the room with natural light. The dining room is of similar proportions, with space for a dining table and separate sitting area. There is a family room which has large west-facing windows overlooking the garden. There is also a cloakroom and downstairs WC off the hallway.

      The kitchen has been very tastefully finished, with a perfect blend of modern fittings and traditional wall and base units. There is a large, central island unit, AGA and space for a table and chairs. There is a utility room and boiler room off the kitchen.

      The master bedroom faces south and west, with a Juliette balcony. There is a dressing room next door, which has access onto the balcony. There are four further generous double bedrooms on the first floor, two family bathrooms with separate shower units and free standing baths. There is also a separate WC and a number of useful cupboards off the landing hall.


      The house sits on a large corner plot and is accessed via a stone driveway leading to the front door. The front garden enjoys a southerly aspect and there are well maintained lawns to north and west, well screened by a mature hedge. The flower beds are stocked with a variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees which provide an abundance of colour.

    I love what Wester Coates has to offer - it is a very quiet area of detached family homes, yet within striking distance of the West End and City centre - and, in my opinion, this is one of the best you will find!
