3 bedrooms – family bathroom – shower room - sitting room – living room/bedroom 4 – dining/family room – kitchen – utility room – cloakroom – off-street parking – home studio – large attractive garden
This broad and handsome 1930's semi-detached house has been significantly extended and improved in recent years to create a substantial and rather special family home with a versatile and extensive ground floor arrangement which retains attractive period features and benefits from a large rear contemporary dining/family room extension. The property stands back from the road in this highly regarded near central City location enjoying an 80ft landscaped rear garden and detached home studio. A storm porch leads to the generous and newly decorated reception hall which has attractive wood flooring, a refitted cloakroom and original feature staircase. The front sitting room is bright and airy and has a large bay window with made to measure shutters, wood flooring, picture rails, bespoke recess book shelving and an open period fireplace with decorative wood surround. The living room/bedroom 4 is a versatile room which adjoins the sitting room and has a period fireplace and tall glazed sliding doors which lead to a separate private terrace area. A large utility room continues through to the kitchen and provides excellent additional storage and access to a useful outside storage area. The kitchen measures an impressive 17'11 in length and provides an extensive range of stylish freestanding style low level cabinetry with a range of integrated appliances and granite countertops. The dining/family room is a fantastic space which has three sets of double doors opening on to a large paved terrace area. The first floor landing leads to the refitted family bathroom, separate shower room and three spacious double bedrooms. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have attractive wood floorboards and useful built-in storage and hanging space. Outside, there is off-street parking available to the front for 3 vehicles. Gated side access leads to a wide storage area and garden beyond. The rear garden is predominately laid to lawn with tall established shrubs and trees set to borders, a garden shed, terrace area and detached home office with an open Oak framed extension ideal for outside entertaining and dining.
