SO MUCH MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE – noir by david cliff – This home really does have far far more than you can imagine.
Let’s face it, everyone loves a period property and even if you are a ‘new home’ person you can appreciate how attractive this style is. At first glance this does however look like a fairly conventional bay fronted semi but ohhhhh how wrong first impressions can be ……..
The current owner have bought and transformed this home into something quite unique, you will have no idea that there is approaching 2500 sq feet of floor area here until you walk inside and see what we saw. You have options here, versatility is the key and if you fancy an additional income you have that scope too.
Let’s start at the beginning. As you swing into the driveway you have one of the most desired features and the most moaned about … PARKING and plenty of it, with room to turn.
Now for the main house, high ceilings, great rooms, amazing space and a generally wow feeling to things. The more private, main reception room is set to the front and is a great size with a stunning open fireplace and huge bay window which only increases the feeling of space and light.
The rear has then been really cleverly designed and extended to give four areas that work independently but also as one, this space really does need to be seen as neither the floor plan or pictures truly do it justice and the vaulted feature with velux windows just show how much thought went into it’s creation. You can easily see how this works so well for family life, a really social space for everyone to use and come together but also an incredible set-up for entertaining guests and partying!
The kitchen itself is really well fitted with attractive units and contrasting work surfaces and the brick formation tiling add a really nice feature and effect. Beyond here you do also then have a fantastic size laundry and boot room which has been fitted to the same standard as the main kitchen, numerous storage cupboards, appliance space and a very cleverly designed low level butler sink.
Now comes the even more interesting part, the home within the home. The owner has created a truly lovely self-contained 2 bedroom annexe complete with shower room and lovely kitchen/ breakfast room. Again the attention to detail here is really noticeable, the kitchen itself has a great feel to it with tall shaker style storage cupboards and the same brick formation tiling as found in the main house, no corners cut here!
So you see the versatility is here in abundance, would you rent this space out and have additional income, would you have older children having their own space, friends or family that stay for longer than a night or indeed incorporate it back into whet is already a huge home? ….. you decide.
Moving to the first floor you have five bedrooms and three bath / shower rooms to service them so the space simply continues and really balances the overall home well. The master suite is particularly impressive, as you would want it to be as you pay the bills, a fantastic bay fronted room with en suite and room to breathe and furnish in whatever way you could wish for. Bedroom two is then also huge but to be honest they are all double rooms so let’s not worry too much about that and just say it’s all pretty impressive.
Wandering outside you have a good plot both front and back. The front has been re-landscaped to give ample parking and room to turn if needed, the new front boundary has been thought of well to tie in with the front elevation of the house itself.
To the rear you literally feel like you have your own piece of countryside, at this time of year you can actually see what you have here, the features and the thoughtful nature of the planting and the areas of particular interest. Wander right to the very back and there are a few surprises here that we’ll leave you to discover and think you’ll be impressed. It`s also well worth mentioning that large as this garden is it then also backs onto open fields, another big tick.
Overall this a home with so much to offer and all so versatile that you may well need to wander around a few times to take it all in so feel free to let us know how you’re fixed and we’d be pleased to arrange a tour.
