Entrance
The entrance to the property is adorned with a block paved pathway, guiding you through the front garden to an impressive Victorian portico boasting a beautifully tiled floor. On either side of this pathway, beds of vibrant plants offer a delightful array of colours and textures that evolve with the seasons. Enclosed by quaint dwarf walls, the garden exudes charm. A pathway extends alongside the property, leading to secure gated access to the rear garden.

As you step through the magnificent front door featuring delightful stained-glass panels, you are immediately welcomed by the breathtaking Minton flooring that graces the hallway, hinting at the grandeur that awaits beyond. The hallway, boasting lofty ceilings, intricate covings and ornate mouldings, seamlessly links to the sitting room/dining room, cloakroom and kitchen through elegantly framed doorways, while a staircase ascends to the first floor. Additionally, a doorway conveniently provides access to a spacious cellar.

Living Room
Enter the enchanting living room/dining room, where exquisite coving, intricate ceiling roses, a bronze column radiator and beautiful period fireplaces create an atmosphere of timeless elegance, serving as the focal point of the room. The reception area is bathed in natural light streaming through its expansive front-facing sash bay window, creating an inviting ambiance.

Dining Room
With seamless connectivity, the hallway effortlessly links to both areas, enhancing the overall flow of the room. At the rear, the dining room impresses with a floor-to-ceiling glazed window and a door that opens to the rear garden, complemented by another bronze column radiator.

Kitchen
The kitchen stands as a masterpiece, skilfully extended beyond its original footprint to integrate a utility area, repurposing the space that once housed a Victorian washroom and coal house into a practical haven for modern living. The kitchen features quality shaker style units adorned with granite worktops, a 1 1/2 bowl sink and a hob with an extractor hood overhead. Within the units, integrated appliances include a dishwasher, a warming drawer and two separate eye-level ovens, one with a double function as a microwave.

Adding functionality, a breakfast bar graces the worktops, while a recess within the cabinets provides ample space for an American style fridge freezer. Throughout the kitchen, quality wood effect tiling exudes style, while recessed spotlights illuminate the space. A sash window above the sink invites natural light in. Extra plugs underneath the breakfast bar provide convenient access to power sources, facilitating a comfortable and efficient work-from-home setup.

Breakfast Room
Adjacent to the kitchen, a breakfast/lounge area extends as part of the renovation, featuring a striking vaulted ceiling with an exposed original beam and a Velux window, a generous picture window at the rear and French doors to the side, infusing the space with abundant natural light. Modern elegance is accentuated by a contemporary vertical radiator, completing the fusion of style and functionality in this exceptional room.

Utility Room
The adjoining utility room seamlessly continues the style of the kitchen, featuring matching kitchen units and sumptuous granite worktops that incorporate a sink with a flexi-hose mixer tap. This tasteful addition offers generous storage for essentials, along with space and plumbing under the counter for both a washing machine and a dryer. Enhancing its appeal, the room boasts a vaulted ceiling adorned with two Velux windows, as well as a window on the side aspect and a stable door providing access to the outside.

Bathroom
The well-appointed family bathroom offers a serene retreat, complete with a contemporary styled suite featuring a high- level WC, washbasin and bathtub with a rainfall shower head and separate hand-held shower attachment. Two obscure- glazed windows on the side aspect, adorned with fitted plantation-style shutters, flood the room with natural light while ensuring privacy.

There is also additional loft storage accessed from the landing.

Bedrooms Three and Four
Both of these generously sized double bedrooms are enhanced by ornate Victorian fireplaces, adding character and charm. The third bedroom is situated at the front of the property, offering a charming view of the surroundings, while the fourth bedroom overlooks the serene rear garden.

Garden
Step outside and indulge in the ample patio space, enveloped by colourful planting in the surrounding beds, creating a tranquil retreat. The well-designed landscaping of the garden provides plenty of room for alfresco dining, while a lawned area beyond is perfect for children’s playtime.
