About this property

  • Copper Folly is an outstanding Victorian residence of particular historical significance, having once been home to the world famous cryptographer Alan Turing highlighted by the blue heritage plaque. Set in a private position away from the main road, this imposing five bedroom semi-detached property has been renovated to a superb standard throughout, retaining many original features.

    Approached through gates into a sweeping block paved driveway, there is extensive parking, a generous lawned area, well stocked borders with mature trees and a Cheshire brick wall with gated access to the rear gardens.
    Steps lead to an original part glazed front door and into a particularly bright and spacious hallway with oak flooring and ceiling cornicing. On the left is a formal 18'2 living room with a bay window and ‘Bole' oak flooring whilst an open fireplace with stone surround provides an attractive focal point.
    The dining room if also off to the left of the hall featuring wooden flooring and an opening for a fireplace. This flows into the open plan living kitchen with travertine flooring, a delightful double-aspect and doors opening into the garden. The ‘in frame' shaker style oak kitchen with black marble worktops includes an island ideal for informal dining and the comprehensive range of integrated appliances include a fridge, freezer and dishwasher and space for a range oven. A lovely 11'10 garden room which is perfectly suited as a play room or study features a porthole window and vaulted ceiling.

    The basement level offers a 14'2 utility/store room with space for a washing machine and dryer, a cloakroom with WC and a versatile room perfectly suited as a home office, gym, occasional bedroom or cinema room.

    To the first floor, there are three bedrooms including two suites; the 15' principal bedroom with a part tiled en suite shower room and white sanitary ware and bedroom three offering an additional en suite with a period style roll top bath.

    The second floor offers a further two bedrooms with skylights flooding the rooms with light and a split level bathroom with separate sunken bath and shower.

    Externally, the property is sat in spectacular walled garden grounds with mature trees offering a high degree of privacy. A series of circular steps lead down from the kitchen and garden rooms to the lawned area which extends at length along the side and back boundaries. A landscaped patio area with hedging border provides an excellent space for entertaining and the beautifully manicured gardens offer a tranquil setting in which to relax and enjoy.
