Property Snapshot

This wonderful home was originally a double fronted Victorian villa, which was radically extended in the early 1970’s. The property is ripe for renovation and ideal for the creation of a contemporary living kitchen along with the potential of incorporating an annexe.

Description
The property is positioned on the corner of Leach Green Lane and Eachway Lane, enclosed by mature hedging and approached through an arched gateway leading to the gardens.

As you enter the property through the hardwood entrance door you are greeted by a welcoming hallway, with a period staircase rising to the first floor. There are glazed doors to the two reception rooms found to either side of the hallway and a door to the cellar.

The sitting room has a tall bay window overlooking the garden, an inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove inset and brick detail shelving to either side. There is also a feature beam to the ceiling and a further window to the rear.

The formal dining room, which can also be utilised as a study has a tall bay window overlooking the garden and lovely period details including cornice.

The cellar is accessed via brick steps and includes wine racks and cooling stone shelving. There is a ground water pump and electric in this room.

Moving down the hallway to the rear of the property there is a spacious kitchen, with a range of wall and base units with laminate work tops incorporating a stainless-steel sink with drainer and a mixer tap. The kitchen includes a Rangemaster oven with a stainless-steel canopy extractor fan over. There is also tiling to the splashbacks, spotlighting to the ceiling, space for a dishwasher and a bay window with pleasant views over the rear garden.

Leading off the kitchen there is a good-sized pantry area and a large utility room with two Belfast sinks and home to the Worcester boiler. From here there is a door to the ground-floor WC and a further door to the side accessing the rear garden.

Back into the kitchen, there is a glazed partitioned wall and a door through to a large ‘L’ shaped living space, which could also accommodate a dining area. There are three windows overlooking the front of the house onto Leach Green Lane.

To the rear of the living space three steps lead down through an archway featuring a period style leaded glazed door to a further room. This room has a window looking out onto Leach Green Lane and two high-level windows.

From here there is access to the ground-floor bathroom, which comprises a WC, a bath with a shower over, a bidet, a pedestal wash handbasin and a window to the side.

Within this exceptional living space there is an open tread staircase that takes you to an upstairs room, featuring a vaulted ceiling and a window overlooking Leach Green Lane.

The spacious landing to the front has a central window overlooking the gardens and bedrooms leading off to either side.
