Located on this popular quiet, residential street is this beautifully presented 5 double bedroom, mid terrace Edwardian family home. The substantial house offers an abundance of space, over 2000 sq ft (189.4 sqm) with high ceilings and plenty of character and charm. The property has been lovingly decorated by the current owners and benefits from solid hardwood double glazed windows, sympathetically fitted in the original style of the house, off street parking, a superb kitchen dining room extension leading to a large 60ft SOUTH facing private landscaped rear garden.

The house has an attractive façade with a cream painted exterior, a square bay window on the ground floor and a couple of steps leading up to the front door. The property is set back from the street by a good size driveway with block paving and walls either side.

Upon entry there is a generously wide hallway housing the staircase incorporating useful storage underneath and a guest toilet with wash hand basin. There are nice features in the hallway including high ceilings with cornicing, a cast iron radiator and wooden flooring underfoot that spreads seamlessly throughout the whole of the ground floor.

The front reception room is quite charming, it offers high ceilings and cornicing, an attractive central fireplace as a centrepiece with fitted shelving and cupboards in the alcoves either side. The large square bay window illuminates the room with natural light and sits above an ornate cast iron, white radiator. On the other side of the room are interior double bi-fold doors that open up to the second reception room, perfect for separating the ground floor zones of the house to offer flexible living accommodation for large families and entertaining.

The second reception room is a cosy, snug area with another fireplace matching the one in the front room also with fitted shelving and cupboards in the alcoves. At the far end of this room there is a glass balustrade that filters natural light with a couple of steps on the side leading up to the kitchen dining room at the rear.

The kitchen dining room is the heart of the house and has been delightfully extended to maximise the use of this space. The solid wood floors compliment the handmade Neptune Shaker style kitchen that occupies one side of the room, with a breakfast bar island in the middle housing a butler sink, set in a white marble worktop with a handy boiling hot water tap. No need for a kettle in this kitchen!
There are plenty of wall and base mounted units with integrated appliances, the all-important wine cooler and space for a large American style fridge freezer and a range style cooker with extractor above.
Natural light floods into this South facing space through a bespoke made, stunning orangery style skylight above and bifold patio doors that lead to the garden.

The garden is a suntrap thanks to its South facing aspect. There is a tiled patio area closest to the house, with a few steps leading to a raised lawn which has a boarder of mature plants and shrubs. At the far end of the garden there is a shed and plenty of space for a trampoline.

Upstairs there is a generous landing with a nice cast iron radiator, providing access to all the rooms and the converted loft on the top floor. There are cosy cream carpets on the floors that occupy most of the bedrooms too.

At the front of the house there are two bedrooms, one is a large double with wood flooring, built in shelving in the alcoves and large double glazed wooden framed windows fill the room with natural light. The bedroom adjacent is the smallest bedroom and makes a good kids bedroom, nursery or a home office.

The middle of the house is occupied by another large double bedroom equal to the one at the front, offering high ceilings with cornicing, a feature fireplace, carpeted flooring and a double glazed wooden framed sash window that looks out toward the garden.

The family bathroom is a good size and is fully tiled, floor to ceiling. It benefits from a walk-in shower enclosure, heated towel rail, a toilet, a freestanding roll top bathtub and a wash hand basin with vanity unit. A frosted window sits above the bath offering natural light and ventilation.

At the far end of the hall, at the back of the house is another double bedroom which has a particular charm as is sits directly above the garden offering plenty of light and nice views.

The top floor has been converted to create a lovely main bedroom suite with an en-suite shower and a study.

The study is located on the landing at the top of the stairs, there is a built-in desk with hard wired, high speed internet, storage either side and a skylight above for natural light and ventilation.

The main bedroom spans the whole length of the loft with wood effect flooring and fitted wardrobes along one side of the room. There is a skylight at the front with eaves storage underneath and at the other end of the room is a large dormer window overlooking the garden and far beyond.

The en-suite shower room is tastefully clad with natural Travertine stone tiles on the floor and in the walk-in shower, which is separated by a glass screen to give the perception of additional space. The wash hand basin is accompanied by a toilet which sits next to a generous amount of hidden storage in the eaves with a frosted double-glazed window above that allows for light and ventilation.
