    About this property

    • 63 Woodland Drive is a spacious detached property, situated in a popular residential road with excellent transport links. It has been a much-loved family home, having been in the same hands for over forty years, and offers its next owners an excellent opportunity for renovation, with scope for extension (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

      The accompanying floorplans should be used a guide to the full layout and extent of the accommodation, which extends to 1897 sq ft (2146 sq ft including the garage) and is arranged over two floors.

      Points of note include the entrance hall with marble stone flooring and an elegant staircase with a wrought iron balustrade; the sitting room is open to the dining room, and has a working fireplace with a superb Italian marble mantelpiece and French doors to the rear terrace. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room, which has access to the side. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

      On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite offers an impressive space comprising a bedroom with built in cupboards, a dressing room with wardrobe, and a bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. There are three further bedrooms, each with built in storage, and a family bathroom.

      No 63 is set slightly back from the road, and approached via an in and out driveway which offers ample parking for multiple vehicles ahead of the integral garage and house. The garage has an up and over door, and has a former dark room which could be used as a workshop.

      There is side access to the fully enclosed rear garden, which has been cleverly landscaped in a terraced format, maximising the space and providing a stone paved terrace close immediately adjoining the house, with space for table and chairs, and levelled lawns.

    What I particularly liked with this house is the elegant entrance hall, and the wide frontage allowing for an in and out driveway. It's a super family house which is ready for its next incarnation.
