Set back from Oakley Road behind its double gated original brick built wall lies this approximately 1880’s detached Victorian Home. One of the more exciting opportunities to come to the market in recent years, the large brick wall wraps around the whole home, creating an incredibly private, peaceful and well established space. The current owners have undertaken considerable structural refurbishment and modernisation, including plaster work and upper ceilings. Whilst there is finishing work to complete throughout the property there remains a blank canvas with unlimited possibilities for impressing one’s own stamp whilst adding a very tangible value to the investment here.
Upon entering via the large wooden gates, the approximately 44ft wide by 33ft depth front garden and driveway provide ample room. There is potential to create a considerable amount of additional parking across the lawn area if preferred. The garage with power is also accessed from the front, and is a sizeable space for storage and workshop use. The entire length of the lean-to roof has been lined with breathable membrane, re-battened and re-slated with fresh synthetic slates. A generously wide approximately 4ft gated pathway leads down the side of the house, providing excellent access to the large garden to the rear of the property.
A welcoming entrance hallway provides a striking first impression of the home. The ground floor and upper floors are bare boarded and ready to receive the floor coverings and colour way of the new owners. The living room benefits from a new log effect gas stove fireplace with black granite hearth, with the family room boasting a fully functioning Class 1 chimney flue for solid fuel use. This exits from a wholly new brick roof chimney with cream brick banding detail and built on a new lead tray and flashing at roof level. The cast iron fireplace seen can be refurbished and installed by new purchasers should it be to their taste within the vision for the room. A brand new granite hearth similar to that in the other front room, is also available and could be integrated into a different design plan, be that an open fire or log burning stove.
Leading from the entrance hall into the kitchen/dining room, new enlarged double glazed windows overlook the bright high walled garden which faces almost due south. The kitchen/dining room is ready for a new installation and without ceiling panels ready for easy wiring of the chosen lighting plan. A fully serviced modern Worcester Bosch combi boiler under extended warranty has been installed with recently upgraded central heating pipework to the system. Sliding doors from the kitchen gives access the spacious and sunny conservatory, with recently renewed double doors opening onto the garden. Also accessed from the other side of the kitchen is the office space, further leading to the newly built utility and cloak/shower room and exit door to the garden. The utility room is a new addition to the home, with built in storage/worktop space and a Franke sink and draining board. Leading up the staircase to the first floor, three double bedrooms are on offer, all with dual aspect windows allowing natural light to flood the rooms. Off the landing, a new loft hatch and ladder lead to a fully boarded front loft on extra strengthening timbers with lighting, giving full depth insulation and protection for ceiling joists. To the rear of the first floor, a fully refurbished and spacious four piece bathroom with freestanding Matki shower enclosure and separate Carron Carronite bath with Calypso bathroom furniture can be found.
The south facing rear garden itself is a mix of some mature shrubbery and trees surrounding the main lawn, and a recently installed large (approximately 12ft x 8ft) shed with a quality rubber roof at the bottom of the garden. This approximately 69ft in depth and 44ft in width garden helps complete this well-appointed home that represents an incredibly rare opportunity.
