Guide Price £750,000 – £800,000. Boasting plenty of character with the charm of a Victorian residence, a family home perfect for commuting and with a south facing garden and off road parking.
DESCRIPTION Built around 1900, Stanmore is a fine example of a Victorian home with all its grandeur. For buyers that are seeking large rooms and plenty of character, this could be the perfect choice. As soon as you walk up to the front door, the combination of the red brick and part-stained glass door gives you an understanding of what is on the other side. The stripped wood floor in the entrance hall that flows into the sitting room and snug, complements the high ceilings. Stepping into the triple aspect sitting room, the sash bay windows combine with the open fire and there is plenty of space for sofas. You’ll find the formal dining table and space for the piano at the back of the sitting room and French doors which lead you out to the rear. With doors into both sections of the sitting room, there is the possibility to create two large reception rooms to provide more flexibility, but we have fallen in love with this single, 26 x 12 room. The snug is a great place to relax and watch TV or read a book, with the kitchen/diner occupying the rear of the ground floor. There is ample work surface prep space as well as cupboards and drawers and space for appliances. The gas Aga is the focal point of the room, whilst to the rear there is space for a breakfast table for six people.
On the first floor there is a bedroom and the family bathroom occupying the rear section off the split level landing, with two further bedrooms to the front. For many buyers, the fourth bedroom works best as our client currently uses, a work from home office. It is worth noting that the large loft area could be converted to provide further bedrooms subject to the necessary permission being granted. Outside, the garden that is south facing, with a large hardstanding area that has wooden gates that lead to the drive and parking at the front. The garage houses the washing machine and tumble dryer and provides additional storage.
The Council Tax band is E and the property tenure is freehold.
