To the far end, a half-glazed door leads down red brick stairs into the Cellar offering expansive storage and potential for possible conversion. While to the side of the Entrance Hall lies the Downstairs WC.
Drawing Room – The carpeted Drawing Room is flooded with natural light from both twin windows and a feature bay, the array of original sash windows all benefit from secondary glazing and frame pleasing views out across the front gardens. The expansive sweep of the grand room is grounded by a statuesque fireplace with original black mantelpiece with subtle decorative craving, now home to a period-appropriate fire surround with textured white tile side panels and coal-effect gas fire. Originally two rooms the transition between is still denoted by the ceiling arch, readily defining areas for relaxing by the fire from a malleable zone ideal for studious reading or perhaps even for formal dining.
Family Room – The Family Room offers an inviting and more informal family retreat, ideal for relaxing before a focal fireplace with coal-effect gas fire within a period-style black surround all brought up to date by modern decorative tiles and an imposing modern metallic mantelpiece. To either side of the fireplace are fitted matching full-height bookcases with 6 open display shelves. The original sash window and French Doors open out into the Sun Room beyond and frame views into the lovely rear gardens.
Sun Room – Atop a half wall the modern addition of the Sun Room is fully double-glazed with clear glass roof.

Kitchen/Dining Room – The fully-fitted Wren Kitchen mixes complimentary grey and white units smartly contrasted with black granite countertops. The large central island offers Butler sink with an array of surrounding storage; full cupboards to the far side and deep pan drawers with internal organisation and dividers, including spice rack, cutlery and utensil concealed inner drawers. Opposite the island there is space for an electric range cooker (with nearby gas supply reconnection possible). The extractor hood above is concealed within the overarching cupboards while flanking the cooker space are also units concealing full-height fridge/freezer, integrated Hotpoint microwave and recycling and refuse bins. De-marked by a change to solid wood countertops, the Utility zone provides both integrated dishwasher and washing machine. The triple aspect Kitchen features multiple windows all dressed with white wooden blinds with views out into the rear gardens surrounding space for a dining table. The External Door with opaque glazing opens under the shelter of an open side porch behind the solid wooden gates of the Driveway.
Bedroom 1 – The Principal Bedroom is a lovely double with original wood flooring and enjoys twin windows sumptuously dressed with both fabric Roman blinds and curtains overlooking the rear gardens with its mature ornamental trees and majestic pine with sculptural presence.

The fifth Bedroom features a shaped, double-glazed window overlooking the rear gardens while a door connects into a carpeted Dressing Room with central wood support beam. A cupboard door opens to roof storage, home to the water tank while a smaller cupboard door offers deep under-eaves storage. Combined with the open sixth Bedroom across the small landing, the whole suite offers a dream retreat for the pursuit of numerous family hobbies, with the Dressing Room currently utilised as a Sewing Room. Yet any teenager worth their salt would commandeer the entire floor for their own personal retreat with space for Double Bedroom, dedicated Study and relaxing Den. A drop-down glazed cover seals the second floor off through the winter months to conserve heat, if not in constant use.
The lovely front garden with its neatly clipped shrub border, lawn with specimen cherry tree and well-planted beds borders the long Driveway providing ample parking for numerous vehicles before the solid wooden gates having even an additional parking space beyond them. At the drive’s end lies the new single Garage with lighting, power and outside tap it offers full Workshop potential beyond providing copious storage. The rear gardens are laid out with a central lawn bounded by low-maintenance shrub borders and feature a triple terrace with tiers for seating, abundant flowering containers and a side lower level ideal for al fresco dining.
