DescriptionSet well back from the road on a lovely elevated position no. 100 Old Cabra Road is a stunning period home which has been renovated and amply extended to the side and rear to provide spacious accommodation for a growing family. The extension has been carefully considered and the layout is ideal for a family with formal reception rooms, large family living areas with ample bedroom accommodation. The house has been extremely well maintained and decorated with great style by the current owners who have been careful to retain many of the original features including original fireplaces, ceiling covings and polished wooden floors. The large and mature gardens are a real feature of the property which was built on the site of an old orchard with many mature fruit trees remaining in the garden.
The accommodation comprises an elegant entrance hallway with polished solid wooden floor, ceiling covings and under stairs storage. The reception rooms are interconnecting with the living room retaining the original fireplace with polished wooden floor and a bay window. Double doors with stain glass insets lead to the dining room, also with polished wooden floor and original fireplace, double doors lead to the family room. The family room is very bright with original fireplace with solid fuel stove. The heating system has been recently upgraded and the house is presented with the benefits of all modern comforts. Three skylights flood the room with light with two sets of French doors to the garden. Double doors lead to the kitchen with vaulted ceiling, skylights and a great range of fitted floor and wall units by John Daly Kitchens with plenty of room for a dining table. A door leads to a utility room and guest w.c. Upstairs there are four bedrooms - three doubles and a single room currently used as a dressing room. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.
To the front of the property there is a lawned garden and cobble lock driveway with parking for a number of cars. To the side of the house there is a garage with separate home office. A patio can be accessed from both the kitchen and family room while the remainder of the garden which measures approx. 26m x 11m is laid in lawn with mature fruit trees and block built storage shed.
The property is serviced with electric gates and an electric garage door together with a state of the art security and alarm system.
