This charming period property benefits from its own private front entrance, as well as direct access 'same level' to a landscaped south facing rear garden. The accommodation is full of character and provides extremely versatile and adaptable four-bedroom accommodation across two levels, boasting an internal floor area in excess of 1850 sq ft / 173 sq ms. The lower level provides a welcoming entrance hall with a cloakroom, immediately on your right is a shower room with adjoining bedroom. Beyond is a spacious open plan sitting / dining area measuring some (26' 7" x 11' 4" / 8.11 x 3.46m) which in turn gives way to a good sized contemporary fitted kitchen / breakfast room (22' 1" x 11' 5" / 6.73 x 3.47m) with composite worktop and breakfast bar.
From the sitting area a lovely galleried staircase opens up to an elegant double aspect main reception room. This room enjoys a lovely depth of character - a great room to display your art - providing high ceilings, a working Victorian cast-iron fireplace with limestone surround and with matching alcove cabinetry and bookshelves. This room also includes a deep 'sash hung' bay window giving views of the Thames and the lock. To the rear on this floor there is a master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and fitted plantation shutters. There are two further bedrooms, one of which has been remodelled as a dressing room with quality built-in wardrobes. One of the units incorporates a pull-out double bed. To complete this floor there are two useful storage cupboards off the landing and a stylish shower room, again with fitted plantation shutters. The property further benefits from gas-central heating and double-glazing throughout except the original period windows to the front sitting room.
Outside the front garden is enclosed by yew box hedging (Taxus Baccata) whilst the sunny rear garden is hard landscaped and laid with Indian sandstone flags, with retainer sleeper planters and recently renewed close-board fencing. There is useful rear access to a vehicle service lane. EPC D
