To the front of the property is a wonderfully bright and airy, dual-aspect double reception room, complete with shutters over the bay window, wooden flooring and a characterful feature fireplace. High ceilings decorated with ornate cornicing bring a beautiful grandeur and amplify the sense of space, which has been opened up to create this stunning area in which to relax, dine and entertain guests. The reception room offers a feature window allowing views into the expansive dine-in kitchen which has been tastefully extended to make use of all available space, creating the ideal hub of the home. This superb kitchen boasts sleek stylish cabinetry, generous storage and worksufaces, a sociable breakfast bar, as well as plenty of room for a large dining and lounge area, a fantastic space sure to wow guests. Original brickwork adds further feature, leading up toward the skylights which, along with a feature window and double glass doors allow light to bathe the space, leading onto the rear garden. South-West facing, the lovely and well-maintained garden benefits from additional light and privacy due to the positioning of the surrounding houses and feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life, providing the ideal sunny spot in which to unwind with a book or host BBQs throughout the warmer months.
Completing the ground floor is a stylish and handy water closet. Liberating space in the kitchen, a convenient utility is neatly tucked in the cellar, a fantastic example providing additional storage, pantry space, wine cooler as well as toy station for keeping an eye on the little ones as you go about the chores. The traditional cellar storage space is also on offer, accessed via a hatch in the wall. Planning permission has previously been granted to convert this remaining cellar space.
On the first floor sits the principal suite, two further bedrooms and a modern wetroom. Simply luxurious, the principal suite offers a fantastic size bedroom with a large bay window, characterful fireplace and sumptuous carpets create a calming yet airy feel. A spacious walk-in wardrobe leads through into a stunning en-suite complete with double sinks, walk in rain shower and a separate double-ended bathtub, perfect for a relaxing soak in the bubbles with views over the garden below. Sharing the same leafy views a generous double bedroom nestles to the rear of the first floor under the characterful turreted beams of another bay window, adjacent to a contemporary wet room and a separate WC. A third bedroom rounds off the first floor, an ideal nook for use as a home office, nursery or yoga studio.
Leading up to the second floor, a stylish family bathroom serves the bedrooms on this floor, flooded with light from a Velux window, ideal for stargazing whilst enjoying a shower or bath whilst a pop of coloured cabinetry is offset against a neural parquet floor. Bedrooms three to six are all double rooms, enjoy a peacefully setting over the remainder of the second floor, all finished with the charm of original fireplaces.
A further rare perk is off-road parking facilitated by a dropped kerb on the driveway. This expansive home could be moved into stress-free, benefiting from the hard work that has been completed to extend and renovate, resulting in the perfect mix of period features and tasteful, modern design.
