This is a terraced house, in an area sought after due to highly acclaimed schools, full of period character and with generous dimensions.
All three bedrooms are doubles and on the ground floor the kitchen has been extended to offer bifold doors directly onto a decked area of the garden. The extension does a wonderful job of combining modern architecture seamlessly with period charm.
The house offers over 1250 sq ft of living space with some generous dimensions. As an example, the through lounge (which can be separated into two rooms with the double doors) is over 26 ft and the kitchen diner is almost 23 ft.
There are some wonderful period features such as fireplaces, bay windows, stripped floor boards, high ceilings, ornate spindles, dado rails to name a few.
Additional features include a downstairs cloakroom, off street parking to the front of the house and a rear garden which is accessible from the through lounge (via double doors) and the kitchen extension.
There is also a loft space which could be extended subject to consent, however you will note that many houses in the local area have extended into their loft space adding an extra bedroom and bathroom.
There is much more to this property that can only be appreciated upon viewing, however the images do a fantastic job of showing you what’s on offer. Please also see our 360-degree images to give you more insight into what the property offers.
