Property Details

Must be viewed. Magnificently proportioned traditional double upper villa boasting light filled living space of great character and retaining an abundance of fine period features. This south-facing family home with its large, beautifully stocked walled garden and double garage is set on a prime corner site which is tucked away in a highly regarded residential area in close proximity to a great choice of amenities and good transport links. 

Superbly proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows ensure a great feeling of light and space throughout this property, which hugely benefits from a leafy, south-facing aspect to front and outlooks on two further elevations. Of particular note is the very impressive drawing room, where light floods in through a south-facing bay window looking out to mature trees opposite. Lovely period features in this room include a carved wood mantelpiece and elegant plasterwork to the ceiling. A sitting room overlooking Glenorchy Terrace catches the afternoon sun and has a wood burner, sanded flooring and decorative cornicework. Whilst there's plenty of space for a large dining table in the drawing room, the kitchen also has free floor space for more informal dining, plus a handy utility room off. 

The bay windowed main bedroom is generous in size and has lovely period features and the benefit of an en-suite. Four further double bedrooms are located on the upper floor, together with the family bathroom. A stairway leading up from the kitchen accesses the sixth double bedroom, a box room/study and WC. 

Main door access to the property is by way of a grand entrance adorned with wall tiling and lit by two impressive stained glass windows. Stripped woodwork, doors and staircase add great character to the main hallway, which offers ample storage. 

Lying to the side of the property is a wonderfully sunny private walled garden, ideal for outdoor relaxation or for children playing on the stretch of lawn edged with flowering trees and mature planted borders. A summerhouse with space for seating provides shelter. Gates from the street allow access to the detached double garage, with a large storage area at the basement level below.
