This charming 2 bedroom mid-terraced house is conveniently positioned in a quiet, near central neighbourhood in the heart of Victoria, close to the River and City Centre with its combination of ancient and modern buildings, winding lanes, excellent choice of schools and wide range of shopping facilities.
No.29 has undergone various improvements and has been exceptionally well cared for. The house retains many original features throughout, yet has been designed with modern living in mind, offering a kitchen/breakfast room, a large first-floor bathroom and an open/plan living/dining room, as well as a tranquil private garden with rear access.
The property is entered via a glazed timber door with a fanlight over, leading to an entrance hall with an archway and attractive corbels, coupled with original wood flooring which continues through to the main reception room. The bay-fronted sitting room has an open fire, contrasted by attractive tiled inserts and a wooden surround. Adjoining the sitting room is a dining area with built-in shelving and French doors leading to the private rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy, benefitting from a dual aspect and 2 Velux windows. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a range of units and includes various freestanding and integrated appliances which are included within the sale.
Upstairs are 2 good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom with a feature fireplace and bedroom 2 including a built-in wardrobe and drawers. There is a large bathroom which includes a separate bath and shower, complemented by original wood flooring and a feature fireplace.
Outside the front of the property is set back behind a shallow front garden with a low brick wall and there is a pathway to the front door. The south-facing rear garden offers a superb degree of privacy throughout and is a peaceful oasis. There is a paved terrace, well suited to alfresco dining. Raised sleepers lead up to a lawned area, bordered with a variety of stocked beds. At the foot of the garden is a concrete hardstanding which could be used for erecting a studio or shed, serving as a blank canvas for any new purchaser. Finally there is secure gated access leading back to Searle Street.
Searle Street forms part of a sought after and charming residential area close to Alexandra Gardens and only about 1 mile north of the city centre which can be easily reached on foot or bicycle. Jesus Green and Midsummer Common are close by and there are a good range of local shopping facilities and independent cafes and restaurants both on Victoria Road and Mitcham’s Corner.
