The fact that the present owners have enjoyed this magnificent period property for almost 50 years is absolute testament to its 'rightness'.
Occupying 4 levels including a lower ground floor, at every turn you can imagine this home when it was originally occupied. If period property is your passion then prepare to be seriously impressed.
The wide entrance hall with its decorative arches, coving, mouldings and cornices tell you much about what to expect from this beautiful house.
Enter the lounge and you're immediately struck by its gorgeous feature fireplace, high ceilings and decadent coving. However, the room is dominated by the large bay window and unobstructed views over the park. You would be hard pressed to find a better town location to watch the seasons change we think.
The equally impressive dining room has no doubt played host to many family Christmases with consummate ease given its space and light. Again, a feast of original features including another lovely feature fireplace.
Continue our journey to the rear of the house, past the downstairs cloakroom and you are in the kitchen. This is clearly the heart of the house. The feature fire recess commands the room, providing a glimpse of the past when this might have been a true working kitchen. The combination boiler is sited in the kitchen for easy access.
Access to the conservatory is via the kitchen. True useable space which blends seamlessly into to a beautiful compact courtyard garden via double doors.
The lower ground floor is accessed via the hall. This space is split between a utility area and pantry. There is a faint echo of a bygone time standing here when this would have been the laundry but now it's just a great usable space that would lend itself to a variety of uses.
Upwards to the first and second floor and we have 5 beautifully proportioned bedrooms. Over the years they have lent themselves to a variety of uses for the owners including a home office and a studio. However, we believe they simply ask to be used for their original intended purpose and again have the noise of a large family around the upper floors.
With the exception of the smallest bedroom, each has its own feature fireplace but all with high ceilings that contribute to the feeling of light and space. Even the loft bedroom has been delightfully planned so as to maximise the space and the centre hinged roof lights provide for a fabulously light room.
We're thrilled with the opportunity to bring this beautiful family home to market and we're sure that you will be thrilled when you treat yourself to a viewing.
The Owners Love: The proximity to the town centre and railway, watching the seasons change in the park directly opposite.
We Love: The period features, the high ceilings and space, the town centre life that this magnificent house will facilitate.
Beautiful family home
