About this property

  • Believed to date from 1929, with later additions, this is a superb Turner house with classic tile hung and brick elevations under a tiled roof. The current owners acquired the house in 2016 and began a comprehensive programme of renovations, including the addition of an impressive two-storey side extension, a single-storey rear extension and replacement porch, to create a wonderful double fronted family home. Care and thought has been given to ensure that the improvements are in keeping with the original, resulting in a superb combination of contemporary style and period authenticity, including tiled windowsills and some original door handles. The property is beautifully decorated, with neutral décor offset by splashes of colour, a feature tiled wall, plantation shutters to many windows and wood flooring to much of the ground floor. It offers light and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors.

    The floorplans give an excellent overview of the house and should be used as a guide to the full layout; the house is ideally suited to family life, with versatile reception rooms currently laid out as a formal sitting room, a playroom, and a superb open plan family/dining/reception room at the rear of the house, with three sets of French doors to the rear terrace giving an excellent flow between the interior and exterior spaces.

    The family room has the original fireplace as a focal point, and is open to the dining room, which has plenty of space for a large table and chairs. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with a good range of dark blue units complemented by pale worktops; the central island is finished with stainless steel and has a wine fridge. Appliances include a Lamona five ring gas hob with extractor over, pair of ovens, dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. The adjoining utility room has space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes, and an en suite shower. There is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room and three further bedrooms (one currently used as a study) served by a family bathroom.

    The house is set back from Gander Hill, approached by a gravelled driveway with a lawn to one side which opens out to provide parking for several vehicles ahead of the house.

    The rear garden is fully enclosed by a combination of hedging and fence panels, with gated access at the side; there is a terrace at the rear with plenty of space for table and chairs, an ideal spot for entertaining. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with trees sheltering an elevated patio in front of the timber garden room/storage shed, which has power connected and can be used as a home gym. There is a woodchipped space for a trampoline.
    About 0.23 of an acre.
