This semi-detached Victorian residence is full of character and charm. It has been in the ownership of our client for around 35 years and has been used as a spacious family home.

The vendors acquired the ground floor two bedroom basement flat many years ago which is held under a separate leasehold title with the freeholder being the owner of the main house.

The formal dining room is dual aspect and has a bay window with a superb view with again an ornate ceiling and slate fireplace.

Each window either enjoys an outlook over the front garden or the wonderful expanse of the Kensey Valley.

On the second floor is a large bedroom suite which has a further storage room which could be used as a kitchenette or adopted as an en-suite. The room has access to extensive into eaves storage. The house has mains gas fired central heating.

Below, the basement flat has a separate access and is superbly appointed throughout as it was completely refurbished in 2019. It comprises of two bedrooms and a large open plan kitchen/dining/living space. The kitchen area is equipped with a range of units and an integrated Zanussi electric oven, hob and extractor. The modern units have concealed under lighting and recessed spotlighting. The flooring is of a luxury vinyl type. Both bedrooms are large enough to accommodate a double bed and share use of the Jack and Jill luxury bathroom which is fully tiled with a heated towel rail, lit mirrored vanity unit and vinyl flooring. A separate WC is in place. The flat has UPVC double glazing and warmth is provided by mains gas fired central heating.

The garden for the main house is at the front, well enclosed and level. It is mainly laid to lawn and has a variety of shrubs and bushes with a garden shed. It is able to receive the sun later in the day. The flat has a paved terraced area which is the perfect place to make the most of the finest views across the valley.
