DescriptionWelcome to St Josephs, a beautiful, charming, five bedroom detached residence set on grounds which extend to in excess of 0.4 acres of mature, lush and colourful gardens, completely private to the outside world. Entered via electronic wooden entrance gates, flanked by tall hedging on one side and a mature Sycamore Tree to the other it immediately sets the tone of entering a magical garden. The driveway leads to the forecourt, laid with gravel providing ample parking with a mature Cedar tree taking centre stage at this point with the most beautiful shades of green coupled with every direction you take in the view. Large paving stones give way to the path which leads to the front of the property with a patio to soak up the sun and surroundings in complete privacy. The flowerbeds are awash with colour which border the perimeter of the property with gorgeous hydrangeas, agapanthus, lavender and many more varieties.
St Josephs, originally a 1950's bungalow, has been completely renovated by the current owners with the most recent work being carried out in the mid 90's to include remodelling the layout to be more conducive to family living with many rooms being redesigned and positioned in a clever way with living accommodation to the south westerly side of the house and bedroom accommodation to the other. During the renovation the roof was also replaced at this juncture to ensure all aspects of the property were complete to a high standard. The property is presented in excellent decorative order throughout having undergone many upgrades over the years which also include updated bathrooms, kitchen, flooring and new gas boiler.
As one enters the property, one passes the covered porch with beautiful Boston Ivy. As you enter the property the large entrance door gives way to a large reception hallway with marble tiling giving access to the main bedroom accommodation and study to the right and the living accommodation to the left on the south westerly side of the property. Off the hallway is a large bright open plan drawing room with dining area, with dual aspect and outlook over the gardens from every window. A sunroom has been added to this area, with floor to ceiling windows, a wonderful place to enjoy the outlook. Off the hallway is the kitchen, a bright room again with dual aspect and south westerly aspect complete with crème kitchen units, large island, dining area and bay window with seating. Double doors off the kitchen leads to the patio area in the garden with seating area and a fabulous area to enjoy the summer sunshine and al fresco dining. The large utility room and guest cloakroom is located across the hallway from the kitchen with another entrance to the rear patio area. The cosy family room, positioned at the end of the hallway gives additional space for families to enjoy. The bedroom accommodation includes five bedrooms, all double rooms, two of which are ensuite with the master bedroom boasting a large ensuite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. A large family bathroom, guest w.c and large study with an outlook over the gardens complete the accommodation.
