Situated along a well-regarded road of handsome period properties, this generously proportioned Victorian home has been subject to an impressive renovation, extending the rear and modernising the interiors while keeping the period character. Throughout the home there are a number of preserved original features, including ornate coving, picture rails and period fireplaces. The interiors are beautifully presented and are enhanced by luxurious touches such as polished wooden floors and a neutral colour scheme.
The ground floor layout comprises a large drawing room, family room, cloakroom and a kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is a particular highlight of the family home, with granite work surfaces and a curved island providing excellent storage. Integrated appliances include a fridge freezer, oven and gas hob, with space for laundry appliances in the adjoining utility room.
On the first floor the principal bedroom has a pleasing outlook to the front via a bay window and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. In addition there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second floor has a store room and two further bedrooms - one of which is a large double with fitted storage and a shower room, making an ideal area for guests or older children.
