Property description

Set in a desirable location down a quiet side road, this is a handsome double fronted semi-detached house, dating from 1912 and recently extended by the current owners to create a truly unique modern home offering light, well-proportioned accommodation over three floors.

All rooms benefit from outstanding natural light and the house retains period detail with a modern twist, reflected in a cantilevered glass and oak extension over 3 floors and extensive use of oak throughout, as well as underfloor heating on all 3 floors, clean air mechanical ventilation heat recovery systems and numerous other features together providing a high-spec building. The house was once home to the great granddaughter of Charles Darwin, who planted many of the trees in the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast/family room, to the rear of the ground floor, provides superb family/entertaining space with a large area for dining. There are two traditional reception rooms to the front of the house - the drawing room and study, and a large open sitting room in the middle of the house. A spectacular oak and steel spiral staircase winds up through the house rising to the first and second floors.
The first floor provides a superb master bedroom suite with en suite bath/shower room, large walk-in wardrobe, and further dressing/sitting room space. There is a second bedroom (presently used as a large study) with dressing room, at the front of the house with views over Staverton Road. The second floor provides 2 bedrooms with mezzanine sleeping / seating decks above, and a 3rd with oak dormer window. There is also a sitting room or further bedroom as well as 3 further bathrooms of which 2 are ensuite.
The private garden has a paved terrace and is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees.
