This exceptional character semi-detached home is quite superb, both inside and out, and includes a host of beautiful original features, blended with modern day accents, to fuse the old and the new seamlessly, resulting in an end product which is authentic and tasteful. The property occupies a prime position and plot, with a huge rear garden to the rear and is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious addresses within the area and, conveniently, only a short distance from the vibrant village centre of Standish, with a diverse range of independent shops, bars and eclectic eateries. The area boasts a number of highly regarded schools at both primary and secondary level, including the outstanding and highly desirable Woodfold Primary School, cementing this property’s fine credentials as a family home.
The home itself is a real gem, offering a delightful homely feel from the first step across the threshold, a feature which is often associated with more mature homes, and affording over 1750 square feet of accommodation.
With a well laid-out floor plan arranged over two inviting levels the accommodation is entered via the entrance porch through the original leaded light doorway and into the reception hallway, with a fabulous spindled staircase, rising to the first floor. The dining room has a lovely cosy feel, complete with a feature fireplace, whilst the stunning circular bay window to the front elevation, complete with original coving and leaded window affords an abundance of natural light and provides an open airy feel. The main lounge is positioned at the rear of the home and this sizeable room has French doors leading out into the beautiful gardens, original coving and ceiling rose and a traditional tiled fireplace and hearth housing a gas fire. To the rear of the home there is an impressive kitchen which provides a real hub of the home feel and the perfect space in which the family can gather together, and is fitted with modern elegant units, housing all the required appliances. There is a handy ground floor cloakroom, and utility room, which is equipped to house all of the laundry appliances and also provides access into both the garage and garden. The first floor boasts access to the five excellent bedrooms, with three of the bedrooms featuring built in wardrobes/storage and two of which boast pretty original cast iron fireplaces, as well as the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have impressive views over the gardens and views towards Elnup Woods.
Externally, there are attractive gardens to the front and rear, the rear garden being a particular treat. The front garden provides ample off road parking and access to the attached garage, whilst the huge rear garden is tasteful in its design and offers the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco dining or evening drinks! There is ample room for children to run around, and enjoy the outdoors, with space for a play area if needed. There is also a further detached workshop/store.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a truly stunning home and we would strongly advise an early internal inspection to appreciate all that it has to offer. The property is also offered with the benefit of no onward chain.
