About this property

  • The house is understood to date back to the late nineteenth century and is a very attractive red brick property set back from the road in a corner plot. Its tall, soft red elevations under a tiled roof are enhanced by the semi-circular brick arch framing the front door, a ground floor bay offset to one side and, currently under construction, a substantial detached garage thoughtfully built and designed to mirror the style of the house.

    The accommodation is elegantly proportioned and is light and airy throughout owing to deep sash windows, high ceilings and the attractive colour scheme. The ground floor is arranged around a central hallway, with the two principal reception rooms (a sitting room and family room) adjacent to a dog-leg staircase rising up to the first floor landing. The family room has a magnificent marble fireplace and a deep bay window whilst the drawing room has deep pile carpet and another fireplace and enjoys views over the garden to the south. A set of glazed double doors leads from the drawing room into a conservatory, which doubles up as a dining area and extends across the back of the house through to the kitchen/breakfast room and straight on to the garden.

    A snug beyond the principal reception rooms has attractive panelling and opens up into the 18' x 17' fitted kitchen with electric underfloor heating bi-fold doors, contemporary high gloss units with composite work surfaces, AEG integral appliances including an induction hob, two ovens and wine fridge, a combination microwave oven, a hot tap, a larder fridge and a vast array of drawers and cupboards. A utility room with a sink and space and plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer lies adjacent to the kitchen.

    The first floor accommodation includes three double bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. Bedroom four has an en suite, the third bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and the second bedroom has a lovely view down over the side garden. The bathroom (which is en suite to bedroom four) has underfloor heating and is fitted with a beautiful suite combining the best elements of traditional and contemporary design.

    The second floor accommodation enjoys views towards the city skyline and has been thoughtfully designed to create a magnificent master bedroom suite around its own landing. This includes an en suite bathroom, a dressing room and extensive fitted wardrobes.

    A detached garage (recently constructed) incorporating a ground floor office and first floor self-contained annexe lies to the left of the house and has additional parking in front. The plot extends to 0.23 acres and includes a thoughtfully landscaped rear garden, a large stone terrace and a raised pool deck designed to take advantage of the sun. A number of beautiful specimen trees run along the boundaries and the remainder is laid to lawn. Adjacent to the pool is the most fantastic entertaining area with bar and garden pavilion with vaulted ceiling, heating and an open fireplace.

Fairfield is the archetypal Victorian house but I especially love the fact that it's tucked away off the main road at the end of this no-through road, yet you're within walking distance of the city centre; everything is on your doorstep.
