This detached period house has an attractive facade providing great detail and lovely individual features typical of the Edwardian era. The property has been extended and cleverly modified to provide a comfortable and more practical layout for modern day family living, beautifully presented and benefiting from a high level of natural light throughout. An entrance vestibule provides useful cover and leads to the entrance door with leaded stained glass windows, side window panels and transom. The reception hall has an attractive original patterned tiled floor and staircase. The impressive sitting/dining room has been opened up to create one large triple aspect room which has a handsome bay window, cast iron fireplace and polished restored wood floorboards. The kitchen/breakfast room has been refitted in recent years and has an extensive range of cream coloured low level units and drawers, matching wall units, work surface space and breakfast bar. The conservatory is off the kitchen/breakfast room and provides access to the rear garden. The first floor landing leads to the impressive family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and three lovely bright and well appointed bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is dual aspect and has an immaculate en suite shower room. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have beautiful period windows. Outside, the front is mostly laid to gravel and provides a generous parking area. Gated side access leads to the rear garden which is predominately laid to lawn with established borders of various plants and flowers, a patio area and covered seating area.
