This characterful semi-detached 1930s house, offers the spacious accommodation associated with a house of the era, but is also ripe for extensions and conversion to create a larger family home, subject to the relevant planning permissions as there is scope to extend to the side, rear and into the loft as neighbours have done. There is an excellent south facing garden and ample off-road parking on offer. Situated in the catchment area for Western and Westgate schools as well as being close to Peter Simmonds Sixth Form College, it will certainly appeal to families. In addition, the national railway station is a short walk away giving access to the mainline service to London Waterloo.
On entering the property, the large, welcoming entrance hall has many period features and gives access to the ground floor living accommodation while stairs lead up to the first floor. The sitting room is a lovely bright space with a feature fireplace as a focal point and with a large bay window overlooking the front garden. The sitting room is open plan through to the ding area at the rear, another bright space with french doors out to the rear garden, and with door through to the kitchen alongside which has ample floor and base units and space for appliances. There is plenty that can be done to enlarge the space by combining with the dining room, or with the useful utility space which is located at the back of the kitchen (with door out to the garden). There is also a W.C although this is accessed from the garden at present.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor where there are four good bedrooms which are serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom. One of the bedrooms is accessed via the master bedroom so could be converted into an excellent en-suite bathroom or could be used as a nursery. Many similar properties in the road have converted the loft and added dormer windows so that is a distinct possibility with this property, and would enhance the already excellent views across Fulflood from the upper windows.
Outside to the front of the property is an attractive lawned garden with a path leading across it to the covered front porch. To the side there is ample off-road parking for several cars in front of the detached garage. The private south facing rear garden is lovely, with the grassy areas flanked by established plants and trees, a greenhouse behind the garage and a large paved patio area to the rear of the dining room and kitchen.
Fordington Road is superbly positioned for easy access to the mainline railway station (links to London Waterloo in approximately 55 minutes), and city with its high street shops, boutiques, library, coffee shops, public houses, restaurants, theatre, cinema, museums and of course the citys historic cathedral. The property benefits from being in the Western Primary and Westgate through School catchments, and there are local shops and takeaways just round the corner on Stockbridge Road.
From our offices in Southgate Street, turn left into the High Street and at the mini-roundabout turn right into Upper High Street, and then left over the railway line and right down St. Pauls Hill. At the roundabout turn left into Stockbridge Road and proceed past the row of shops and take the left into Fordington Road where the property is on the left
