The house, which dates from the 1920s, is very attractively positioned on this leafy, quiet, and much sought-after road. It is close to local shops on Stockbridge Road, as well as a more diverse selection at Weeke, including Waitrose.
The house is very characterful and appealing, set back from the road behind with a gravelled drive to the front and side. The handsome, rendered façade features box-bay windows at ground and first floor levels with various sections of wood-cladding beneath the gable ends to the side, rear and front of the property.
The property is bright, spacious and well-presented with ample scope to adapt and change if desired. The ground floor living spaces flow very pleasingly with four separate reception areas to enjoy making it perfect for modern family living, as well as all the practical rooms one would hope for including a good utility room, study and W.C.
A large, enclosed porch gives access to a spacious central hallway with exposed wooden flooring, a W.C leading off, and stairs turning up to the first floor. The accommodation includes an elegant sitting room with attractive period fireplace, a super family room with glazed doors directly out to the garden, a useful boot room and utility with doors to the garden, and a small study. The double aspect kitchen/breakfast and dining room stretches from the middle of the house to the rear and features ample base and eye level units within the bespoke, refitted kitchen. Features include under-floor heating, a large range oven, fridge/freezer, Fisher and Paykal dishwasher and granite work surfaces. At one end is a good breakfast area, while at the other is a larger area for a dining table and chairs. There is another door out to the garden. The kitchen area has tiled floors while the majority of the ground floor has varnished, exposed floorboards.
A wonderful stained-glass window provides excellent natural light halfway up the stairs which rise and turn to the first floor. There are four good bedrooms leading from the central landing, including an elegant master bedroom with box-bay window, ample fitted wardrobes and a smart en-suite shower room. A stylish family bathroom is also accessed from the landing.
Outside there is a super, mature garden with large patio to the rear of the house, while the lawn beyond is bordered by flowerbeds which are well stocked with shrubs and plants. Set back from the house to one side is a tandem garage, the rear of which could be used as a workshop as there is a personal door out to the garden. There is ample parking on the shingled drive which lies to the front and to the side of the house, and the house is nicely private from the road behind mature hedging.
