An elegant, lovingly restored and character-filled two bedroom Edwardian mid terraced residence which is presented in superb condition throughout. The property has been tastefully decorated and maintained in recent years. It is a very stylish light-filled home with high ceilings, beautifully proportioned accommodation and many period features intact.
From the entrance hall one turns right into two very fine interconnecting reception rooms with original pitch pine floor, deep skirting boards, original coving and cornicing. There is an original fireplace and hearth in both the living room and the dining room. Double glazed windows add light from front and rear to these fine rooms. A newly fitted contemporary kitchen combining granite tiles and worktop with generous use of stainless steel on the walls and a range of integrated NEFF and Fisher Paykell appliances and patio doors to the rear garden completes the downstairs accommodation. The attractive main bathroom tiled in pale Portuguese limestone, is nicely positioned on the first floor return. There is a bath with shower attachment, a separate power shower, toilet and WHB, doubled glazed window and a large VELUX roof window for extra light and ventilation. On the first floor there are two generous light filled double bedrooms, the master bedroom to the front with a cast iron fireplace and high quality built in wardrobes and a second double bedroom, with a cast iron fireplace currently used as a second living room. There is also a light and airy attic conversion with 2 generously sized VELUX windows currently used as a study.
Outside there is a low maintenance garden to the front with 2 bay trees and a charming low maintenance rear garden which is gravelled and well planted with an abundance of mature plants including a bay tree, wisteria and buxus. It also has vehicular rear access on to a large open area which facilitates parking
