Walking down Langholm Crescent you could easily mistake it for a street in North London. The red brick terraced houses are imposing and beautiful, standing just as proudly today as they would have done over one hundred years ago.
Needless to say, if you're a lover of period property then we might have just found you your new home. As you stand at the end of the garden path looking at the huge front door it's impossible to not get carried away thinking about what delights await you beyond the shutters and stained glass. Be assured, this property does not disappoint and is a true treasure trove of character and period features.
The large hallway is the first nod towards the property's Victorian heritage. The neutral decor and clean design is homely and welcoming, if you're looking for the property that's going to give you "that feeling" then surely this is it?
The lounge is truly spectacular. The decorative frieze is a perfect example of architectural craftsmanship - sure to catch the eyes of all who visit - and the marble feature fireplace is one to warm your heart as well as your hands. The windows have been thoughtfully replaced with double glazed sashes, in keeping with the property's original style, and the plantation shutters provide much appreciated privacy from the road outside.
To the rear the dining room boasts an impressive open-brick fireplace with wood-burning stove and double doors lead you to your lovingly landscaped courtyard garden. Whether it's Sunday afternoons spent reading a book or Saturday evening drinks this room is sure to become your favourite spot.
The kitchen/diner however is the true heart of this family home. Not only is the kitchen beautifully designed, the thought that has gone into making this space practical for the modern family is evident throughout. The larder cupboard is sure to impress lovers of organisation and the built in wine rack is sure to impress... well, everybody? There is ample dining space for all the family and the utility room beyond provides further space for appliances and storage.
Upstairs there are six stunning bedrooms all boasting period features of their own. Which will you choose? The balcony, the feature fireplace, the plantation blinds? No-one can draw the short straw choosing a bedroom here.
The family bathroom is spacious and designed in keeping with the age of the house - for what Victorian terrace would be complete without a free standing claw-foot bath? If you're more of a shower person then fear not, you're sure to appreciate the rainfall shower head in the separate cubicle.
Outside, the courtyard garden has been cleverly landscaped to make the most of the space. The use of decking, gravel and paving in the heavily planted garden provides plenty of space for relaxing with the family and making the most of the rather unreliable North-East sunshine.
Truly, we could go on forever. This property is a real gem and sadly no amount of words can really do it's beauty any justice. To arrange your viewing and see it for yourself - call us now.
The owners love: The light and space but also the neighbours and sense of community.
We love: Where to start? The kitchen and its seamless transition to the garden is a dream for those who love entertaining. We simply love it all.
