Property Description

159 Huntingdon Road is a beautiful bay-fronted home dating back to 1926 and enjoying a highly sought-after position between Storey’s Way and Howes Place. This exceptional family home has been substantially expanded, updated and remodelled by the current owners and offers versatility to suit future purchasers' needs whilst also boasting a delightful south-facing rear garden.

The ground floor accommodation comprises 3 reception rooms, including an impressive living room with an open fireplace, a recessed bay-window and French doors leading to an outdoor terrace. There is a welcoming entrance hall with elegant tiled flooring and an abundance of built-in storage, coupled with access to a cloakroom W.C. and stairs leading to the first-floor. Of particular note is the property's impressive open-plan kitchen/dining room, which has a separate utility area and a large pantry. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a custom-built range of high-quality units, a bespoke porcelain central island and includes various integrated appliances.

Upstairs the bedrooms are split over 2 floors, the first housing bedrooms 1, 2 and 3 coupled with a large, luxurious bathroom. The master bedroom is particularly spacious, has a dressing room and a generous ensuite shower room. On the second floor is the remaining bedroom, which has 2 Velux windows, eaves storage and a ensuite W.C with a wash hand basin.

Outside, the front of the property is set back from Huntingdon Road and screened by mature hedging. There is a shingled driveway providing ample parking and access to a garage with a personal door to the rear garden. A further noteworthy feature is the impressive south-facing rear garden which measures 170’ (51m) x 46’9” (14m) and offers a superb degree of privacy. There is a landscaped raised terrace, very well suited to alfresco dining and excellent for entertaining purposes. The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn and bordered with a variety of shrubs, trees and stocked beds.

The space, individuality and condition of this magnificent family home demands an early viewing.
