What it's got

The moment you walk into the grand entrance of this lovely home you will fall in love. You are hit with all the character features you would expect of a home of this era from high ceilings, wooden flooring, cast iron fireplaces to original cornice. Most rooms are tastefully decorated with Laura Ashley wall paper and complementary paintwork. Downstairs the lounge is where you will want to relax with a feature cast iron open fire place and stunning bay window that overlooks the garden. The dining room does not disappoint, again with a cast iron fireplace and leading onto the kitchen. If desired, you could open these two rooms up to create the popular open-plan living space. The quaint country style bespoke kitchen has painted units, range cooker and space for breakfast table and chairs. Double opening double glazed doors lead onto the rear courtyard. This outdoor area is a great place to enjoy your breakfast or retreat to with water feature and leads onto the garage and parking. Also on this level is bedroom five with its own en-suite wet room. Moving up the original wooden staircase to the first floor past a beautiful stained glass window you will find three good sized double bedrooms and even the fourth bedrooms is a larger than average. The bathroom has been sympathetically modernised with authentic roll top bath and wash hand basin. The black and white tiles complement this room perfectly. Adjacent to the bathroom is a separate WC. The rear garden benefits from South facing aspect and enjoys almost complete seclusion. The raised sun deck is a great area to sunbath, socialise and entertain.

What the owner says

"While looking for a home 18 years ago , I found this house which required modernisation. I thought it would be a perfect home to raise my three children, at the same time accommodate the many visitors and family I have had throughout the years. As soon as I entered the hallway I knew this was to be my new home. The original plasterwork on the ceiling is unique and the cornice and banisters are typical for the age and character of this style of property. Apparently it was the original architects home who designed many of the properties on the Branksome Estate including Penn Hill and Alexandra park, many of these homes have been altered beyond recognition, but thankfully this house has retained many original features. Although my family has now grown up and are flying the nest, I am happy to move on and hope that the house provides a happy home to its new owners…"
