This delightful Edwardian period property has been tastefully refurbished and extended by the current owners to effortlessly combine classic elegance with modern furnishings.  Delightful period features are on display in abundance with high ceilings, column radiators, and decorative cast-iron fireplaces; all beautifully off-set against a back drop of both contemporary and traditional colour palettes.  

The ground floor provides a traditional covered storm porch with pendant lamp, panelled front door with frosted side panes and a numbered fanlight.  This leads to a good size hallway with built-in shoe and meter cupboards, as well two useful under stair store cupboards; one housing space for a condenser dryer.  The front sitting room is an inviting space with its bay window and a captivating working fireplace centred around matching alcove cabinetry and floating shelves.  

At the back of the house the original middle reception room and single kitchen are now combined with a 'full width' rear extension to create a show stopping open-plan kitchen/dining/family room with skylight and bi-fold doors opening out to same-level decking.   

A stylish kitchen with its central breakfast island comes with a range of integrated appliances, and also provides spaces for a plumbed American style Fridge-freezer and wine cooler.  The entire space overlooks the garden, and bathes in natural light.  The family and dining areas flow seamlessly into each other; the focal point of the sitting area is an impressive limestone fireplace having cast-iron centrepiece with Art-Nouveau tiled slips. Inbuilt ceiling speakers are fitted to the two main reception rooms, as well as the top floor principle bedroom and ensuite shower room. To complete the ground floor there is wet-room style shower room and combined guest W.C fitted with Geberit sanitary ware.  

An original staircase with balustrades and newel posts rises to the first floor landing.  This lovely staircase continues to the top floor.   The first floor has equally good ceiling height, and reveals three bedrooms (two doubles and a good single), the two doubles both feature fitted wardrobes and ornamental fireplaces.  A family bathroom with natural slate tiling, and Villeroy & Boch sanity ware completes this floor.  The whole top floor is dedicated to a principle bedroom suite again with lots of natural light, fitted storage, and a modern fitted ensuite shower room.  An attractive floor-to-ceiling window is worthy of particular note which enjoys elevated views over gardens and trees.         

Outside, a fabulous sunny rear garden boasts an incredibly private and secluded outlook for such a central location.   It is well maintained with central lawn and raised decking adjacent to the house, external wall lights, power and water tap; the whole garden is surrounded by close-boarded fencing, and has useful side access.  In addition, a rear area houses useful bike store and tool sheds.
