DESCRIPTION Situated on Canterbury Road and approached from a gravel drive, this elegant and attractive family home offers a wealth of period features and a wonderful feeling of space. The detailed ornate stonework and gothic style door at the entrance to the house illustrate the wonderful history behind the property thought to date back to 1874.
The elegant vestibule and entrance hall set a precedence for the fantastic feeling of space this home has to offer. There is a drawing room to the front benefitting from an elevated position, sitting room to the rear enjoying views over the garden, study with access to the garden and a cloakroom on the ground floor. The lower ground floor offers a utility kitchen, dining room, family room and wet room with a generous storage/laundry room.
The first and second floors offer a further six bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are wonderful features throughout this property that all contribute to the welcoming and calm feel the property presents. Both the high ceilings and large windows emphasise the space this property offers.
The rear garden enjoys a south facing aspect and has been beautifully planted to create a private and tranquil space, with stunning wisteria trained to the rear of the property. There is pedestrian access to the garage at the end of the garden. To access the garage by car there is a driveway to the rear on Winchester Road.
The house is currently arranged to suit the needs of the present owners and would benefit from some reconfiguration of the accommodation to return it to a family home. Plans have been drawn up (available on request) to reconfigure the lower ground floor to include a spacious kitchen/dining/family room opening to the garden.
