Centrally located, detached Victorian home.
An impressive Victorian home, dating from 1895 and which has been in the same ownership since 1991 and is a superb family home. The house is laid out over two floors and extends to approximately 2476 sq ft including a cellar. The house has been extended and well maintained and many of the original architectural features remain, including stained glass, picture rails, moulded cornicing, fireplaces, sash windows and joinery.
The accommodation offers flexible and well-proportioned rooms and has scope to reconfigure to suit individual needs. There are three main reception rooms which are all of generous sizes. In addition, there is a very useful study which was added in 2007 with vaulted ceiling and oak floors. This room currently provides a home office with lovely views out over the garden. In addition one of the reception rooms is which has previously been a formal dining room, is currently used as a second home office. Of particular note is the centrally positioned family room which provides both dining and living space and has a wood burning stove, door out into the garden and large sash windows; double pine doors lead into the kitchen, which is fully fitted with a range style cooker. Beyond this is the extension built in 2017 and comprises a utility and boot room, again with a vaulted ceiling and plenty of storage space and in addition a fantastic wet room. There is scope to reconfigure the ground floor to create a larger kitchen and living space should this be desired.
On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with built in wardrobes, a period fire place and an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, with a bath and shower.
The south facing, partly walled garden has been recently professionally landscaped. There are some lovely specimen trees, including a magnolia and Japanese Acer. A brick terrace merges into the lawn, which is bordered by a pebble beach. A raised terrace at the end of the garden is home to an attractive, and bespoke oak framed garden store. There are double gates here, leading out onto St Pauls Hill, and this would be an ideal location to create off street parking, should it be required. There is permit parking opposite the house.

Cliftonville has a legacy of being in the same family for decades, and the current owners have been no exception, moving here in 1991, it has proven to be a wonderful family home. Although the house is close to the mainline station, the railway is in a deep cutting which minimises the disturbance from any train noise without detracting from the convenience of proximity to the station.Lindsay Johnn
