Liverpool Terrace, Worthing, BN11
One of the largest period homes on this incredibly sought after residential street in West Worthing. Offering substantial accommodation of original proportions and replete of all its Edwardian detailing this property is a must view to appreciate its size and potential.
A handsome home of character is how we would describe this fine house which also happens to be set in a large plot. Set behind a well stocked front garden there is the benefit of off street parking to the side for several cars.
Stepping across the threshold you are welcomed in to a useful vestibule with a tiled floor and a very pretty stained glass front door. The main entrance hall has wood panellling which continues via the period staircase to the upper floors. Its here that you get an idea of the space on offer and the largly untouched period features which a found throughout. The front reception room is a superb family space with a deep bay window flooding the room with natural light. A wooden fireplace with gas insert and tiled cheeks provides a warming focal point. To the rear is a beautifully proprtioned dining room or second reception. An open period fireplace mixes with tall ceilings, cornicings, deep skirtings and original joinery including the original sash windows and door to the rear garden. From the hall way is a side entrance which makes for a handy storage area as currently used. A down stair bathroom has a three piece suite comprising bath, w.c and basin. To the rear adjacent to the dining room is a spacious kitchen diner with saske windows over looking the side gardens. A range of fitted wall and base units with a roll top work surface incorporate a double ovven, inset hob and dishwasher. An original pantry offers extra space for food stuffs and even has the original sate counter and a meat safe. To the rear of the kitchen is a utility room with a Belfast sink, gas boiler and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.
To the first floor from the central hall are four double bedrooms all of good propertions with period detailing including cast iron fireplaces. There is storage in the form of a linen cupboard on the landing and an airing cupboard in the shower room which has a neat door to access from the hallway. The shower room has a double walk in shower enclosure and hand basin. A separate cloakroom adjoins so could be made in to one space fairly simply.
The second floor has plenty of light from the large Velux above the stairs. Two further bedrooms with the larger being to the front have access to eaves storage. From the upper landing is a a large walk in cupboard with lighting which has been invaluable to our vendors. Again we feel that there would be an opportunity to manipulate this upper floor in to a stunning master suite if desired.
Externally the garden is a particular feature of this home. There is a side verandah accessed from the kitchen and side door from the hal;l. This is a pretty feature and also makes for a superb place to enjoy the summer sun. The side garden is planted with a wide varaity of established plants and trees offering a degree of seclusion. Originally there would have been a driveway leading to the brick built garage at the rear. This garage is now in need of some remedial work but would be perfect for conversion in to an office or reinstatement of garaging being of a super size. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with trees offering privacy and original brick wall borders. There is also the benefit of an outside loo which comes in handy for the storage of garden paraphenalia!
Although there is some TLC required this has been a loved family home and would make any incoming buyer happy. It is difficult to find homes with this character that have not been altered over the years and with so much of the original detailing.
