About this property

  • Balbegno is a handsome late Victorian villa dating from about 1900. The house has an attractive façade with its multitude of large windows and an attractive turret on the south western gable. In recent years Balbegno has been comprehensively refurbished and it is now a beautiful and sympathetically modernised family home which is in turn key condition. The open plan kitchen and dining room is the first room to welcome you from the main entrance at the rear of the house. It is a German kitchen fitted with NEFF integrated appliances with a large central island, an induction hob, boiling water tap, wine fridge and waist level ovens. Pale grey cabinets, a white Silestone worktop and an engineered oak floor give this room a calm and relaxing atmosphere and, like the rest of the house, it is decorated in peaceful neutral tones. The kitchen opens to the dining room which has lots of space for a dining table as well as comfortable seating. A wood burning stove warms this room in the winter and French windows open it up to the garden in the summer.

    Southerly light streams into the front of the house making the main reception rooms wonderfully bright. Glazed screens surround the front door allowing light into the hall and large sash and case windows in the drawing room capture the evening sun through the pretty turret windows. The drawing room has an open fire and is ideal for more formal entertaining. Towards the rear of the house there is a cosy family room, a contemporary shower room, a neat study and a spacious utility room.
    On the first floor the turret windows of the principal bedroom capture a far-reaching view towards Ben Vorlich and the hills beyond. It has an en suite shower room. Four further double bedrooms are also bright and well-proportioned and share a family bathroom. A large floored attic accessible by a loft ladder provides invaluable storage and subject to obtaining the relevant consents may offer potential for conversion into additional accommodation.

    Outside
    The garden at Balbegno is a particular feature of the property. Mature blossoming fruit trees include apple, pear and plum and there is a lovely magnolia tree. Well established shrubs such as azaleas sit against a backdrop of mature hedging. Wisteria and roses climb the front of the house, while a rock garden as well as herbaceous borders provide colour throughout the spring and summer. A charming summer house is positioned to catch the evening light. At the rear of the house stone pillars frame decorative wrought iron gates which open to a short tarmac driveway and parking beside the garage.
