THE HOME We absolutely adore this property and we know that you will too. The current owners purchased this property as their first home and brought their Son into the world here too. It has been the perfect first home and young family residence for them.
The owners have renovated the property to a high standard and have hand crafted a stylish home with detailed period features in keeping with it's 1901 Victorian era. From the 'classy Victoria Plumbing' fitted bathroom with free-standing Winchester bath, refurbished sash windows all the way to the tiling in the extended kitchen, they were determined to keep the property true to its roots through the renovation.
We particularly love the stained glass window, dipped internal doors and exposed treaded staircase which gives this home real character. Ginger invite you take a look around with us and discover this little treasure.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AROUND.. The property is set back off the road affording good parking space and having the fore-garden set to the one side. We enter the property through the porch, which is a great place to kick off your shoes or provide shelter from the rain while you find your front door key.
Once through the front door with feature stained glass window, you arrive in the front reception room. This property has very adaptable living arrangements, depending whether you prefer to live in the front or rear of the house. One of the key features of the front reception room is the open fire with brick surround. What a wonderful place to sit with your loved one curled up listening to the fire crackling and popping whilst devouring a warming glass of red. This space benefits from a bay window with storage cupboard doubling up as a cosy seating area, ideal for sticking your feet up reading a book watching the world go by.
The rear reception room is cosy too. Plenty of space here for a couple of sofas and TV. The owners have totally refurbished the sash windows throughout to keep the home in Victorian period. This room has a wonderful view out onto the patio area where you can see the original water pump feature and look up to the garden area. Having a tall ceiling creates that all important feeling of space too. There is an under-stairs cupboard here which is great for storing your coats, boots and kids toys, and no doubt the vacuum too. The stairs lead off from this room.
The kitchen has been extended and refitted with cream 'Shaker' style wall and base units with complimentary 'Victorian kitchen' style cream and olive splash-back gloss tiles. A beautiful period ceramic sink with brushed mixer tap encased by contrasting hardwood effect work surfaces. The kitchen has dual aspect double glazed windows looking out up the garden and across the patio area to side.
There are provisions for your dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer too. The cooker is free-standing with an extractor hood over. Other features include the breakfast bar and period back door guarded by the family sheep.
SHALL WE HEAD UPSTAIRS.. The upstairs is accessed via the rear reception room, having the benefit of ground floor door closing off the staircase. Again, in keeping, the owners have left the wooden treads exposed creating another lovely feature.
Top of the stairs, turn left to the master bedroom positioned at the front of the property. Many period features here with a tall ceiling to deliver a sense of space. Sash window overlooking the front, dark stained woodwork with tall skirting boards and dado rail adding a further edge of class to this master bedroom. This room affords plenty of space for wardrobes/ Chester draws and a handy over-stairs cupboard space with its' own door. As expected, the vendors have decorated this room in period colours which sets this room off beautifully. A truly lovely place to enjoy.
Bedroom number two, young Finley's room, or is this the real master bedroom? Neutrally presented with white walls, delivering a stunning view out into the garden through the sash window. What a great place to be able to watch nature from the comfort of your home. The vendors have enjoyed quality time with their Son here sat watching and experiencing the wildlife. This second bedroom has plenty of play floor space and storage space. A bright and spacious bedroom with fantastic views.
House Bathroom has had no expense spared, along with the kitchen this has to be the feature room of this property. The 'Winchester' Roll top bath with ball feet and authentic Victorian mixer tap with shower head to compliment this suite. This is a wonderful place to relax in a hot, soapy bath tub after a long hard day.
The bathroom offers a full compliment of Victorian styled 'Winchester' bathroom suite. The separate corner shower cubicle mixes contemporary with tradition, having glass cubicle with rain head shower to create that `Amazon rain forrest' experience. The bathroom is tastefully decorated with grey wood cladding, white walls and wood effect vinyl flooring. The ceiling spot lights adding glow to the suite and chrome towel radiator for the final touch.
LETS TAKE A LOOK AT THE GARDEN The garden is a great secluded space benefitting from a mix of patio area, which affords an ornamental hand water pump as you step out of the kitchen, then you rise up the steps to the garden areas. The owners wanted to have a degree of being self-sufficient, therefore the top of the garden offers a greenhouse and vegetation area. Currently there is a chicken coop, however, the chickens have started to pack as they intent to move too but sadly will be taking their home with them. The garden is well stocked with a degree of wildness, again in keeping to the 1901 style.
There is side access to the front of the property.
