The property

This characterful Victorian property with striking frontage and double-height arched window offers a wealth of traditional features and ample space for modern family living, with its accommodation arranged across three generous floors.

The high-ceilinged entrance hall has original restored wooden floorboards, which flow through into both the sitting and drawing rooms. The welcoming sitting room benefits from a bright bay window, an attractive fireplace and coved ceilings, while the large and sociable drawing room has a fireplace complete with log burner, and a large open window looking over the sunny rear garden. There is also a charming central dining room with garden views, that leads through into the substantial kitchen. A range of base units, built-in appliances and a butler sink occupy the space, whilst pools of light flood the room via three sizeable skylights. Adjacent is a utility space, modern cloakroom and a cool store room with plentiful storage, whilst a rear glass door leads to the garden.

On the first floor there are three well-proportioned bedrooms all with built-in storage, and a contemporary family bathroom with a d-shaped bath and separate WC. The principal bedroom benefits from sunny south-easterly views and a feature fireplace. The second floor leads to the final two bedrooms, one with eye-catching fireplace, and ample storage within the eaves. A sleek, pleasant shower room completes the floor.
