Elegant 3 bedroom apartment in a superb position.
Understood to date from 1913, Ivor Heath is an attractive and impressive Edwardian house built originally for the Hornby family, of model railway fame, and divided into four parts in 1960. Flat C is a beautifully presented ground floor apartment that has been sympathetically extended and modernised to provide a comfortable and characterful home in the most convenient situation.
Internally, the property offers a magnificent panelled sitting room, with a high, decoratively moulded ceiling, bay windows and an attractive Arts and Crafts fireplace with carved oak over-mantle. An L shaped passage hall leads to all other rooms, whilst light décor throughout creates an immediate sense of space and calm. There are three bedrooms, en suite shower room and bathroom. A compact kitchen includes a range of furniture and integrated appliances, and the adjoining breakfast room has French doors opening to the courtyard. A basement provides extensive storage space.
The property is approached via a short drive from the road onto a spacious gravelled forecourt, enclosed and screened from the road by mature trees and hedges. The single garage is in an adjacent block. A wicket gate leads to a paved front garden and path to the front door. To the rear, the apartment also benefits from an area of garden that is laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders.

I love the balance of character, ground floor living and location.James Boyden
