Dating back to around 1820 this wonderful property is impeccably appointed throughout. Approached directly from Wellington Road a block paved driveway provides off-road parking to the front of the house and access to the single garage. A low-level red brick wall with a mature planted hedge provides privacy.
The front door is set within a stunning arch with stucco pilasters to either side and a character fan-light window above. It opens to a light bright reception hallway which leads directly through the house with a door out to the rear garden. Doors radiate to the principal reception rooms from here and there is a large walk-in cupboard providing ample storage and stairs down to the dry cellars.
The formal dining room sits at the front of the house. A walk-in bay sash window floods the space with natural light and provides views of the front aspect. The magnificent Victorian canopy fireplace with a marble surround is an eyecatching focal point.
The stunning drawing room enjoys a dual aspect making this room delightfully bright. The feature floor-to-ceiling shuttered sash window provides lovely views of the garden. There is an open fireplace providing another focal point for this superb room.
The cosy family room is a relaxing space. This is the perfect place to enjoy the newspaper after breakfast and to relax before dinner. A window provides a lovely view to the rear garden.
The superb contemporary kitchen is excellently fitted with a range of wall and floor mounted high gloss handleless units and gorgeous wood effect work surfaces over. There is a superb range of integrated appliances. A window provides a glorious view of the garden and two slit light well windows overhead draw the eye upwards and provide lots of natural light.
A rear hall provides access to the useful cloakroom/WC and onwards to the large, separate utility room, providing ample storage for the larger appliances. There is also a door out to the rear garden.
From the reception hallway, stairs lead down to the large, dry cellars. Currently used for storage this space lends itself to conversion into further accommodation space (providing the necessary consents are obtained).
Rising from the reception hallway the pretty turning staircase leads to the large landing area. A window provides ample natural light and a superb view over the rear gardens. From here all three of the impeccably appointed double bedrooms can be accessed.
The principal bedroom suite is accessed from its private study. This super space would work equally well as a large dressing room and of a good enough size that an en suite could be created (providing the necessary consents are obtained). The principal bedroom is delightful, it feels grand and relaxing. The room enjoys a dual aspect with views to the front and rear of the property. A large bank of built-in wardrobes provides ample storage space.
Bedroom two is another large room and beautifully finished. A large window provides views of the front aspect and a gorgeous Victorian bedroom fireplace adds interest and warmth to this stunning bedroom.
Bedroom three is again gorgeous! There is a large window providing views of the front aspect and a walk-in cupboard for further storage.
The family bathroom is divine. The perfect combination of opulence and fun. Panel detail to the walls and a striking chequerboard floor both create eyecatching detail. The sumptuous tiled top bath is an excellent way to relax before bed. The wash hand basin is set in a vanity unit with a matching tiled top. This is an exquisite bathroom. The water closet is located next door.
The magical garden, much like this super home is delightful. Part walled and very well-screened with mature planted borders the garden is private and tranquil. Planted with an “English country garden” in mind this glorious outdoor space is a riot of flowering summer colour. A level lawned area leads to the bottom of the garden where a “secret garden” is tucked away.
