A beautifully extended and refurbished family home situated in a peaceful 'tree lined' side road near the River Thames with a fabulous 70ft south facing rear garden, driveway parking for two cars, in addition to a useful garage/store.
This attractive traditional (1930s) property provides excellent two storey accommodation with the first floor aligning closely to its original layout with three bedrooms supported by the main family bathroom. It should be noted, however, that for those who may wish to add future space and value (fourth bedroom & second bathroom) that planning is granted - permission secured via a certificate of lawfulness under permitted development - for a hip-to-gable roof extension incorporating a rear dormer window. Further details available on request or via the Elmbridge planning portal Ref: 2023/1672.
The ground floor layout is a 'breath of fresh air' and a real joy to see a configuration that doesn't typify the standard bi-fold door kitchen extension template. The impressive kitchen, with decorative fireplace, is incredibly well designed fitting perfectly into what was the original front reception room. This, in turn, opens up to a lovely central dining room with working fireplace, and bespoke glass doors flow seamlessly into a fabulous six metre living room with garden access. This charming and colourful living room really is a 'warm and inviting space' with its vaulted ceiling complete with 'four skylight windows' all centred around an ornamental fireplace with a matching set of twin-Crittall doors, finishing off this well-designed space.
To complete the ground floor there is a useful guest cloakroom W.C., and a well-equipped utility room with space for washing machine and separate dryer, and an integrated, high-end Bosch microwave. The kitchen and utility room share the same fitments, including 20mm granite work-tops with upstands and large Belfast sinks. Other notable features are HIVE controlled central heating, quality veneered oak flooring throughout the ground floor, and column radiators.
Outside the rear garden is a true oasis and retreat with stepped natural stone side terrace under a wisteria clad Pergola to create a very private outdoor dining/entertaining space. There is an external wall light points, water tap and door to the garage. The garden is a good size, mainly lawned with established plants, trees and shrubs and enjoys a secluded aspect.
Viewing highly recommended by the vendors sole agent to appreciate the unique qualities of this home.
