Constructed around 1860, the beautifully preserved classical villa enjoys a prime setting with outstanding views, privately nestled behind a mature hedgerow and front garden. The imposing front door, framed by beautiful carved sandstone mullions, opens into a large entrance vestibule with original Victorian tiling, which leads into the grand reception hall. Here soaring ceilings and a sweeping staircase make a wonderful first impression that is only enhanced as you step into the formal living room. This tremendous space has retained a wealth of period features, including a large bay window (with working shutters) that floods the space with light and highlights the intricate details of the ornate cornicing, plasterwork and ceiling rose. A splendid black marble fireplace and tall skirting boards beautifully frame the honey-coloured floorboards, whilst the generous footprint creates for a wonderful reception area to entertain guests in.
On the other side of the hallway is the formal dining room. Also boasting a large footprint and egg-and-dart cornice work, this second reception room is ideal for large family gatherings and comes with a bay window and a living flame gas fire set in a period surround, flanked by an Edinburgh Press. For more intimate everyday family living, a wonderful family/TV room sits at the rear of the property. Arranged around a cosy woodburning stove, this attractive room enjoys access to the dining kitchen and offers rear garden views. The country-styled dining kitchen, with French doors flowing onto the garden, is a cook's delight. Fitted with an attractive red Raeburn, the kitchen enjoys an outstanding range of base units incorporating a gas hob, and undercounter space for a dishwasher. A neighbouring pantry and utility room offers a discreet laundry area and ample extra storage space. Completing the main house accommodation on the ground floor is a study, a handy guest WC, and ample storage.
Leading up the brightly lit original stone stairs with ornate balustrades, a vast landing (with excellent fitted storage) gives access to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The enormous master bedroom, originally the drawing room, is a tranquil haven with delightful views from its large bay window. Arranged around a traditional fireplace, the bedroom boasts the same fine period features as the rest of the ground floor reception rooms. Bedroom two and three are both generous double bedrooms with open Edinburgh Presses. The fourth bedroom is a large single, ideal as a child's bedroom. The bedrooms are serviced by an attractive, four-piece modern family bathroom with contemporary wood panelling, a white three-piece-suite and a separate shower enclosure.
Ideal for extended family, or indeed as an additional income, the self-contained annexe sits to the side of the property. Accessed from its own front door (or via a connecting door to the house), the annexe offers the same period features as the rest of the property, including soaring ceilings. The accommodation consists of an open plan kitchen, living and dining room with a period fireplace and Edinburgh Press. A double bedroom with twin windows and an en-suite shower room completes this additional accommodation. Gas central heating and double glazing can be found throughout the property.
Externally, Norwood boasts delightful, sunny garden grounds. The large front garden has been landscaped to create a low-maintenance area with flowerbeds, shrubs and hedgerows, whilst the rear garden comes with a patio area, a large lawn, flowerbeds, shrubs and trees. A vast driveway leading to a courtyard offers a phenomenal amount of parking space and gives access to a single garage.
