A substantial detached 1930s family house in a convenient central position.
Morley House is a substantial 1930s detached family house. It offers an impressive footprint, extending to over 2800 sq ft, and being arranged over three floors. The property has been in the same hands for over 20 years and whilst it does require some updating, it has clearly been a much loved family home and offers an excellent opportunity for its next owners.
The well-proportioned rooms have high ceilings, original iron framed windows and a number of delightful features including picture rails, servants' bells and a working fireplace in the sitting room. There is separate family room, a study and a spacious kitchen/dining room with original cupboards, pantry and French doors that fold back to open up fully to the terrace.
On the first floor are five bedrooms (four with basins); one has access to a balcony which offers the possibility of conversion and extension, subject to the necessary consents. These bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with a roll top, claw foot bath and separate shower cubicle.
On the second floor is an en suite bedroom, and access to plenty of eaves storage.
Morley House is approached from Franklynn Road via a gravelled carriage drive, and set behind laurel hedging. The wisteria clad front elevation has a generous open porch with wood storage; there is a useful outbuilding with power and water connected, comprising ground floor garaging/storage, workshop and first floor office.
The enclosed rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees, and an elevated terrace spanning the rear elevation of the house and providing a good sized space for table and chairs.
A portion of the drive is owned by the neighbouring property, please refer to the agent for details.

For me, this house offers a great opportunity - it has an excellent footprint and the potential to tick all the boxes for town centre living.Rohan Vines
