Property details

Neutrally presented with many retained period features this enticing home offers the opportunity to move into straight away with the potential to add your own stamp over time, including precedent having been set for a mansard loft, side return extension and second storey development, subject to the necessary permissions.

The ground floor comprises a dual-aspect double reception room occupying the front of the property, featuring high corniced ceilings, wooden floorboards, preserved original fireplaces and dividing doors, ideal for separating out the rooms when a cosier feel is desired. Bathing the room in natural light is a large sash bay window to the front, and French doors to the rear leading to a lightwell courtyard with the potential to dress with plants and pretty light features. A spacious dine-in kitchen sits to the rear, finished with an of-the-moment industrial style kitchen, wrapping around into the lovely bay window overlooking the lightwell courtyard. Keeping the laundry neatly tucked away, a separate utility room leads off the kitchen, through into a handy downstairs W.C. and shower room. The kitchen dining area is set to the rear, ideal for enjoying a sociable meal with leafy garden views.

Large pane sliding doors open to the private garden which is laid to paving for ease of maintenance, with beds around the edges adding an attractive green border.

Over the upper floors are a neutrally presented bathroom with bathtub and overhead shower plus a second W.C. and five bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms are spacious doubles, two of which span the width of the property, the principal boasting beautiful sash windows, original cornicing, stunning fireplace and original floorboards. The fifth bedroom is still a small double yet also offers a versatile room which can be easily re-styled to suit the needs of the purchaser, such as a nursery or home office overlooking the gardens below.

Of further benefit, there is also a cellar ideal for storing away those essential yet rarely used items. All in all, an exciting opportunity with an incredibly versatile layout which would work well for a family or sharers alike yet still with the potential to be altered to suit individual requirements or add value.
