This beautiful period home is one of an individual pair of semi-detached houses believed to date back to the early 1900s. The house has served as a wonderful family home over the years and fully renovated, with meticulous care taken to ensure the aesthetic appeal hasn't been compromised.
The accommodation briefly comprises two reception rooms, which have been opened together to give a light and impressive room with a bay-window, open fireplace and original wood flooring. At the rear of the house is a delightful kitchen / breakfast room which benefits from a dual aspect and has French doors out to a garden terrace. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a stylish range of units and is complemented by a double butler sink and stone worksurfaces. Finally there is a cloakroom W.C. just off from the entrance hall.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, all of which are comfortable doubles. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious, has a bay-window and a feature fireplace, contrasted by attractive tiled inserts. The bathroom is large and includes a freestanding roll-top bath, a separate shower cubicle, WC and two basins on bespoke cabinets. Off the landing is a very useful store and there is exciting scope for a loft conversion, subject to the necessary consents.
In front of the house is a low-maintenance slate-chipped front garden with mature shrubs and a gated side pedestrian access. The rear garden faces south-west into the afternoon and evening sun and measures about 60ft / 18m in length, including the paved terrace that runs alongside the kitchen. The main part is lawned with shrub borders and raised vegetable beds. Double timber gates at the far end can provide secure off-road parking accessed from Granta Terrace.
