DescriptionMagnificent red brick Victorian home built in approximately 1900, cleverly extended, re-designed and modernised in recent years to a very high standard of finish providing extremely well-proportioned accommodation of approximately 284 sq.m. (3,057 sq.ft.). This stunning family residence has been creatively remodelled in order to combine the elegant features and embellishments of its era with today's ultimate in living requirements.
A paved drive set behind cast iron gates offers off-street car parking with granite steps leading to the very fine entrance hall, connecting you to the generously proportioned living space which is in exceptional decorative order throughout, inviting the purchaser to literally walk in and hang their coats. No expense was spared with the restoration of this home incorporating two wonderful interconnecting reception rooms, a stunning modern kitchen opening through to the dining room which in turn opens to the family room with a beautiful feature curved full length window designed and imported from Denmark overlooking the rear garden, a large utility area with excellent storage, ample storage cupboards and a potential wine cellar currently used as a storage area, four bedrooms, one ensuite, a study / fifth bedroom and two bathrooms. An outstanding and particular feature of this property is the sunny landscaped rear garden of approximately 65m (214ft) which includes a large outdoor entertainment section with extensive barbeque patio area and raised gas fireplace. The garden itself is currently divided in two sections with the first being landscaped, laid out mainly in lawn bordered by a granite path and kerb with mature raised flower and shrubbery beds together with a sunken trampoline/play area. A pedestrian gate connects through to the second section of the garden which was granted approval for outline planning permission in September 2002 for two 2-storey mews buildings with two car parking spaces, now lapsed, however there is an obvious opportunity to re-submit for planning in the future, if so desired.
