The house offers an imposing façade of yellow stock bricks with large bay windows and ornate masonry surrounding the door and windows. A beautiful Wisteria hugs the left side of the house offering a spectacular display late spring and early summer. The property is set back from the street by a 30ft front garden which has a driveway and side return access. A Sandstone path leads to steps that go up to the raised ground floor entrance which is protected by an integrated arched porch.
Upon entry there is a wide hallway with a curved wall amplifying the space, which leads to a central staircase that is the backbone of the property providing access to all the floors.
The large front reception room has lovely high ceilings, cornicing, a huge bay window that floods the room with natural light, an original working period fireplace with a detailed surround and shelving in the alcoves. Set on the raised ground floor this room is high above the street giving this room plenty of privacy.

The rear reception room is another vast space sharing similar features such as high ceilings and another beautiful original period working fireplace with surround. At the far end of the room are tall patio doors that open up to a cast iron balcony offering spectacular far reaching views over the garden and beyond.

Downstairs on the lower ground floor there is a laundry room under the stairs where the boiler can also be found, a large walk-in larder and a downstairs toilet. The lower front room has been converted to create a versatile space which can be used as a home office or a playroom. There's an adjacent storage cellar. There are windows to the side and front for natural light and the room has a maple wood floor.

At the rear of the property is a large kitchen dining room that has a maple floor and double doors leading directly out to the patio and garden. The kitchen is set to one side of the room with plenty of wall and base mounted units with a worktop above housing the hob with oven below and the sink that sits nicely under a window looking out to the garden. On the other side of the room is a large fireplace with a wood and coal stove set within. The room is light and spacious with five casement windows.

The double patio doors lead out to the SOUTH FACING rear garden, there is a Sandstone patio area closest to the house which is covered by the ornate cast iron balcony above. Beyond this is a large lawn that is surrounded by mature borders of plants, herbacious plants, rose bushes and apple and cherry trees. To the rear is a secluded second sandstone patio that's surrounded by roses, with a garden shed to the side. The garden is a suntrap thanks to the South facing aspect which illuminates all of the rear facing rooms making this a house filled with light.
