An impressive Edwardian Residence with many original features stands at the end of a private drive within an established level plot approaching three quarters of an acre.
This individual family home has all the charm and character of the Arts & Crafts style Edwardian design from the large reception hall and deep bay windows there is a pleasing sense of proportion associated with this period of architecture. In each room period features remain including many fireplaces, leaded light doors with original door and window furniture. The windows feature original lead work with profesionally fitted discreet double glazing and the whole exterior benefits from recent redecoration. The property is built of brick with rough cast render under a renewed roof.
In total the house provides 7 bedrooms and is presently arranged to suit the requirements of the present owner as one is used as a gym/dressing room and the second floor comes into its own as a semi-independent suite. The accompanying floor plan illustrates the adaptability of the rooms. Improvements to the original room designs include opening up the kitchen and breakfast room to create one large Kitchen Family room and the creation of an en suite bathroom and shower to the principal bedroom.
A conservatory has been added to the west elevation and this room overlooks a productive vegetable garden and landscaped seating area with water feature, specimen trees and shrubs. The remainder of the grounds facing south, south-west are well screened and laid to level lawn divided by a striking Rose and Wisteria covered pergola walkway.
