This unique Art Deco home dates back to 1925 and is filled with charm and character, blending seamlessly with contemporary interior design. The layout offers flexibility for family life, with an option for additional bedrooms or guest rooms if required.
Come on in…
The paved driveway provides off-street parking for up to 4 cars and has an in-and-out layout, meaning there's no need to struggle reversing out of the driveway.
"We have really loved living here; if we could move the house North, we would."
Head to the side of the property for the entrance, opening into the welcoming hallway, where you will find the beautiful hand-made staircase crafted by a former occupant, a master carpenter.
Lovely Living Spaces...
A lovely living room at the front with a bay window fills the room with natural sunlight. In the evening, light the log burner, get cosy, and put a good movie on the TV.
The study lies at the opposite end of the home; a private space with dual aspect windows and French doors that open to the rear garden, making this room ideal for use for a business if you need customers to visit. Likewise, this room could be a playroom or guest bedroom.
The family room is at the rear of the property overlooking the garden. A sun-filled space with French doors out to the patio area. This room also offers flexibility and could be used as a bedroom.
The heart of the home…
"We spend most of our time in the kitchen; it really is the heart of the home."
The kitchen is fully equipped with pale grey units and plenty of workspace, a built-in oven and grill, a 4-burner gas hob, an integrated dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer, making this kitchen perfect for whipping up all manner of culinary delights. Enjoy morning breakfasts and evening family meals around the dining table or a quick bite at the breakfast bar.
There is a separate utility room which is the perfect place for the noisy washing machine, so you are not disturbed when the machine is on a full spin cycle.
There is a lovely bedroom on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room, perfect as a master bedroom or guest room.
Retreat to the first floor to find two further double bedrooms, each with an en-suite and plenty of built-in storage space.
Each bedroom has a private en-suite shower room, so there is never a queue in the morning and no problem finding a moment of quiet. Enjoy long hot showers and pampering without holding anyone up.
This setup is ideal for guests, too, so they have a bathroom of their own. There is also a cloakroom near the utility room.
The driveway takes up most of the front of the property with colour-filled flowerbeds and pots to add a vibrant pop of colour.
To the rear of the property is a very private rear garden with a lawn, edged with established flowerbeds and mature trees and shrubs.
It’s a perfect unoverlooked space for the green-fingered to potter around, yet it’s also simple to keep on top of so that you are not a slave to the shrubbery.
