Sitting/dining room, kitchen/dining/family room, 3 bedrooms, en suite to master, family wet room, landscaped rear garden
This stunning period home enjoys a wonderful position with panoramic views over the river and just a short walk from the City centre. The current owner has transformed the property with a program of expansion and refurbishment yet taken great care to preserve the buildings original integrity including sash windows and feature fireplaces. The property extends to almost 1400 sqft which is practically double its original size. The accommodation comprises a panelled stained glass front door with light box over to a beautiful bay fronted sitting/dining room, an elegantly proportioned room with a feature gas fireplace in a Victorian surround, and with oak flooring which extends into the dining area/music room, with stairs to first floor accommodation and a beautiful bespoke fitted storage and bookshelving unit under the stairs. The kitchen/breakfast/family room has a vaulted ceiling incorporating two large velux windows and this combined with the rear glazed elevation, allows this space to be bathed in natural light giving it a lovely bright and airy ambience. The kitchen area is fitted with attractive cabinetry including a pull out larder and deep pan drawers. There is ample working surfaces with inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, four ring gas hob, double oven and extractor, integral washing machine and tumble drier and space for a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The flooring is laid to a beautiful Travertine tile which extends outside, making the first terraced area of the garden ideal for al fresco dining and in the summer feels like another room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms including the master bedroom and guest bedroom both with sash windows and fitted wardrobe cupboards and the master also boasting an en suite shower room. The refitted wet room has a generous shower area, enclosed wc, vanity hand basin and attractive wall and floor tiles. From the landing there is a roof space access with a pull down ladder which leads to a generous loft storage room with velux windows; this room could easily be converted to an actual bedroom, subject to building regulations. Outside there is a small walled front garden with quarry tiled path to the entrance portico. The rear garden enjoys a sunny southerly orientation and has been professionally landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind, laid mainly to Travertine tiling to match the kitchen with shingle edging, well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds, a selection of bushes and trees, gated rear access and all enclosed by fencing enjoying good levels of privacy.
