This truly magnificent period residence is a real one off within the locality and is unique for several reasons, including the vast amount of accommodation on offer in addition to the array of fantastic period features and character details present across the three floors.

The property has been extremely well-maintained and upgraded by the current owners, making for a stylish traditional home which is ready to move into. Recent upgrades include a refitted kitchen, which is around two years old and is a great space for family and entertaining, nicely complementing the three ground-floor reception rooms.

Across the upper two floors, there are seven spacious bedrooms serviced by three bathrooms including an ensuite to the master.

Outside, there are beautifully landscaped gardens and gated parking to the rear of the property.

The property is approached via an ornate canopy porch, which gives way to a period glazed front door with a lovely stained-glass window above.

Once inside you are greeted by an impressive reception hallway, which has quality Terrazzo stone flooring, a period archway, a sash window and an elegant staircase rising to the first floor.

Situated on the ground floor are three reception rooms, which all offer quality space for living and dining.

The main living room is beautifully light and airy, featuring two sash windows and a traditional carved oak fireplace at the centre housing a gas stove.

There is another room of a similar size with a sash window to the front aspect, a picture rail and a feature fireplace.

The delightful third reception is ideal for use as a snug or a breakfast room, flooded with light from a large bay window and again featuring an attractive period fireplace with carved surround as the centrepiece.

A fantastic feature of the ground floor is the wonderfully spacious and light family kitchen, which has been tastefully refitted to an excellent standard in keeping with the character of the building.

This excellent space is great for modern family living and features a comprehensive range of storage, including a glass-fronted dresser and deep pan drawers, granite work surfaces with an inset sink, an integrated dishwasher, stylish contemporary lighting and a gas AGA set within an attractive tiled recess. Natural light pours into this room from the two sash windows and the patio doors that open out to the seating area. The original servants bell box also remains here, which is a reminder of the past history of this grand Edwardian home.

A door at the rear of the kitchen leads to a useful lobby area with pantry, utility room and a bathroom comprising WC, washbasin and a midi-sized bath. A further door accesses the rear garden.

First floor
A galleried landing, with two sash windows provides access to five bedrooms, four of which are double rooms, serviced by an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom.

The incredibly spacious master bedroom has two sash windows to the front aspect, a grand marble fireplace, a picture rail and varnished exposed floorboards. The ensuite shower room is nicely appointed and comprises a double walk-in shower cubicle and a traditional style vanity unit.

Three of the four remaining bedrooms have period fireplaces, with bedroom two being another extremely sizeable double room, with two sash windows to the rear aspect.

Completing the first-floor accommodation is an impressive family bathroom, which is styled to a classic black and white theme and has everything the family needs, including a free-standing bath, a contemporary shower cubicle with metro style tiling, a contemporary washbasin and plinth, a Victorian style towel rail and radiator combo and a low-level WC with hidden cistern.

Second floor
Stairs rise from the galleried landing to the second floor, which features two further double bedrooms, the largest of which is extensive in size with the second room featuring a delightful cast iron fireplace.

The upper floor bedrooms are serviced by a shower room making for a user-friendly arrangement.

Gardens and grounds
Vehicular access to the property is via a lane from Oldnall Road, which culminates in a gravelled parking area located at the rear of the property. The driveway has double wrought iron gates and can accommodate around four-vehicles including a section of covered carport, which can house two-cars.

The property is complemented by the most fantastic mature gardens, which wraparound the house on several sides and are nicely divided into various sections, each with something different to offer. There are a number of secluded seating areas laid to decking, one of which is bordered by period walling giving a fantastic, sheltered space for alfresco dining. The gardens are absolutely packed with a myriad of mature plants and trees, some with exotic origins including Japanese acer.

Paved pathways meander beautifully through the grounds leading to a wonderful front garden, which nicely screens the house off from the road and has neat slate beds with herbs and conifer bushes, culminating in a flight of steps with brick pillars leading down to the roadside.

The property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage and broadband.
