A beautifully refurbished and extended four double bedroom, two bathroom (four W.C's), detached family home in East Molesey with extensive off-street parking and a large rear garden (approx. 85ft in depth) enjoying a particularly private rear outlook over gardens.
Purchased by our client in 2018, and only the third owner, the property was comprehensively extended and refurbished to a high standard in 2016 with further improvement works in 2019 to include conversion of a garage into a superb home office with fitted joinery, fully boarded loft with pull-down ladder, and landscaping to the garden. The original works involved single storey side and full width rear extensions, a double storey rear addition, together with complete re-modelling to both floors. These works increased the overall footprint to 147 sq ms / 1,582 sqft (representing a 50% increase from the original house). On approach you are greeted by a lovely Art-Deco style arched front entrance with stepped brickwork, incorporating an original stained and leaded glass front door. The entrance hall sets the tone of things come with an open view right through the house in to the garden, showing off its brilliant open-plan design. Tastefully finished to mid-century style, the entire ground floor is laid with part original and part reclaimed maple parquet flooring. It is clear to see that much thought was invested into the planning of this home. It successfully delivers incredibly versatile living spaces, perfect for a growing family and an even better party house. With expansive full width sliding doors the whole rear of the house floods with natural light. Other features include a dual opening 'exposed brick' fireplace as the main focal point to the room, whilst the kitchen area provides stone work-tops, quality appliances and two bespoke portable islands with storage. The ground floor also includes a warm and inviting front sitting room, as well as a separate home office. To complete the ground floor is a highly useful guest W.C including a laundry facility with washing machine / tumble dryer stacked.
The first floor again is thoughtfully planned, with master bedroom boasting lovely views to the rear. The master room enjoys its own walk-in wardrobe / dressing area, and ensuite wash facility complete with continental bath and combined shower. There are three further double bedrooms of good proportion all being served by a beautifully appointed main family bathroom fitted with a classic reproduction roll-top bath having ball and claw feet, and a separate recessed shower. Off the landing is a separate W/C - well positioned opposite the children's bedrooms. Further benefits include attractive plantation shutters fitted to the sitting room and first floor bedroom, and stylish lights with filament lamps. Externally the large garden is mainly lawned with planted borders. There is plenty of space for swings / trampolines, with timber storage shed (rear) and a large tiled terrace opening out from the patio doors; perfect for barbecues / alfresco dining. EPC D.
