Summary

A truly stunning detached residence offering over 3000 square foot of living accommodation set in a plot approaching 0.4 acres beautifully blending modern fixtures and fittings with characterful features set in a most sought after location.

Description

Offering well in-excess of 3000 square foot of internal living accommodation set over three floors, words simply do not do this stunning home justice. Set within the ever popular area of Littledown, just a short distance from JP Morgan, Castlepoint shopping centre and sought after primary and secondary schools, the house sits on an unusually large plot, approaching 0.4 of an acre with extensive front and rear gardens along with single garages and driveways either side of the property over looking Queens Park golf course. 

The owners, who have made the house their home for the last 34 years, have perfectly fused modern fixtures and fittings such as a stunning kitchen/breakfast room, modern shower room and gas central heating system with original character features such as solid oak doors throughout, oak flooring and beams and original windows, although many have been secondary glazed. 

Upon entering the property via a stunning original storm porch, one is welcomed by a truly stunning dining hall, with solid oak flooring and more than enough space for a large dining table.

From the Dining Hall, access can be gained to all ground floor rooms with an impressive central staircase leading to the first floor. The dining area is of an exceptionally generous size measuring over 26' in width and incorporates an open fire, a large window to the front aspect and access to the study/snug.

The Living Room, which is dual aspect with a large window to the front and a set of doors to the rear aspect which open up onto the sizeable southerly facing rear garden, is one of the largest we have seen in the area measuring some 26; in length by 23' in width. The focal point of the room is without doubt the Inglenook fireplace and its open fire along with exposed Oak ceiling beams which further enhance the individuality of this superb home.  Either side of the Inglenook there are two larder style cupboards both of which provide useful storage.  

The beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room can be found to the rear of the property, with French doors leading to the garden as well as a further door to the side. There is a comprehensive range of modern eye level and base units with polished granite work surfaces above. There are a range of built in appliances to include integrated stainless steel fridge drawers, five ring gas hob with double oven below and concealed extractor hood above, microwave oven, dishwasher and double inset sink unit. There is ample room for a breakfast table for a more informal eating experience. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a small utility area, whilst to the other side of the stairs there is an all important Ground Floor WC. 

A grand double return staircase leads to both the first floor and second floor accommodation. 

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, a modern family shower room and a separate WC. The master bedroom is a generous double with a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes and access to a concealed en-suite bathroom which is fitted with a corner bath, wash basin and a low level flush WC. Bedrooms two and three are also large doubles, both with fitted wardrobes, whilst Bedrooms four and five are slightly smaller but still double rooms.

On the second floor there are two large rooms which offer flexibility in their use, currently laid out as a games room and bar.

To the rear of the property there is a large rear garden, mainly laid to lawn with an ornamental pond and large decked entertaining area to the side behind one of the garages. There is access to a useful boiler room/utility and also personal doors to both single garages set either side of the house. To the front of the property there is a neatly maintained garden and two driveways, both leading to the single garages and providing off road parking for numerous vehicles. 

An internal viewing of this unique character home is highly recommended.
