An early post-war (1950's) detached house, built as a one-off by the highly admired builder John Russell. The original design has since been superbly enhanced by a significant two storey extension to the side (north), as well as rear extensions (west) to provide a wonderful family home of a very generous 2,475 sq. ft. (230 sq. m. (gross internal)). Additional to which is a very useful attic room of some 340 sq. ft. (31 sq. m.).
The reconfiguration has created a most engagingly designed home, in superb order, presenting appealing front and rear elevations, all set amidst a generous plot/garden of approximately third of an acre, with the sun loggia/veranda to the back of the house being a lovely sheltered retreat for hot summer days and evenings.
The subjects provide a great four public room and four-bedroom layout, supported by a dining sized kitchen with utility room, two shower rooms (one en-suite to the master bedroom) and a family bathroom. It has some key rooms/features, including a gorgeous panelled dining room, double aspect sitting room, superb lounge with bow window and large double glazed "cupola", a triple aspect guest bedroom (bedroom two) and a master bedroom, with the en-suite shower room and a set of French doors to a "Paris balcony". An impressive spec. is on offer with hand-built kitchen, double glazed windows, a gas central heating system with brand new (September, 2018) boiler (Ideal Logic Heat H30), white sanitary ware throughout, cornicing in many areas and quality floor coverings, including gorgeous hardwood flooring in the dining room and lounge (also located beneath the sitting room carpet) and, recently laid, grey carpets. The sitting room has a cream coloured carpet and the attic room beige coloured. The house has very recently been decorated in a tasteful and most calming palette and we hope the photographs herein will convey the quality of this truly delightful home.
