This wonderful family house has been refurbished and remodelled to the highest standard yet still retains some of its original 1930s features. Set back from the road behind electrically operated oak gates with intercom system, the property has ample gravel parking at the front, electric car charging point and a garage. Internally, the house has been extended and remodelled to provide comfortable and luxurious family accommodation. The entrance hall, with high vaulted ceiling and a beautifully encaustic tiled floor, has the original bell panel and stairs leading to the first floor. To the front of the house there is a study with original cast iron fireplace and fitted cupboards. The traditional high ceiling sitting room also has a log burner with stone surround. Glazed double doors from the reception hall lead to the open plan family living space which includes the beautifully equipped kitchen with hand made John Lewis of Hungerford units with white quartz working surfaces and central island/breakfast bar. There is a Quooker hot water tap, integrated dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, Mercury induction range and a pantry with movement activated lights. The family room incorporates a dining area and double doors lead through to the adjoining playroom/snug. There are sliding velfac doors all across the back of the house with access to the garden and terrace from all rear rooms, with underfloor heating in the kitchen and family room. There is also a large utility and cloaks area and adjoining wc. Upstairs there are five good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with doors and Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden, a dressing area, which in turn leads to the luxuriously appointed en suite shower room with large walk in shower, twin Corian sink units and attractive wall and floor tiling with underfloor heating. The family bathroom has been fitted with a marble herringbone floor, matching marble walls tiles and a white suite. There is a large loft space providing scope for conversion. Outside, to the rear of the house is a large extensive stone terrace with attractive bull nose steps leading down to the formal gardens which have all been designed by Sylvia Newman, the local and highly regarded landscape architect. They include a variety of shrubs, plants and trees with discreet and bespoke automatic lighting and irrigation system. Beyond the lawned gardens there is a paved terrace and vegetable garden and a cedar potting shed and adjoining greenhouse. At the very end of the garden there is a detached cedar panelled annexe. The studio with bi-folding doors/decked area is currently used as a games room, has been used as a gym, and is wifi enabled so would make a fantastic bright home office. There is a vaulted ceiling, four velux roof windows and air conditioning. There is also an en suite shower room. Adjoining the annexe is a sauna and hot tub area. All in all a truly remarkable family home, the like of which is rarely seen on the market and one that should be viewed to be appreciated.
Huntingdon Road is situated to the north of the City within easy walking or cycling distance of the centre and many of the facilities offered by the University.
