UNIQUE PERIOD HOME – noir by david cliff - I first saw this property back in 2011 when I sold it to the current owners who saved it from being developed into apartments …. and what an incredible transformation.
Every now and then you get that ‘one off’ chance to own something a bit special, special by way of unique, a known home in the town, and even if you’re not moving you’ll have a good look at the pictures just to know what it’s like.
If you are the right person for this home you will notice and appreciate the detail on the elevation, contrasting brickwork and detailing to the chimneys on arrival.
The plot here is excellent, huge block paved driveway giving so much parking and access to a great size garage and store rooms. There had been thoughts to seek permission to convert this into an annexe so do have that in mind if you feel you may have use.
Wandering inside under the beautiful covered porch it’s easy for me to see that everything has been taken back and done from new, it was unliveable back in 2011, apart from some wildlife, so plumbing, plastering etc etc has all been totally re-newed and the advised updates to electrics but we can confirm the depth with the owner for you for reassurance.
The entrance hall extends back over 13 feet with a lovely size reception room, currently dining room, off to the right hand side, bay fronted and a great shape to furnish. This could really be anything you want it to be so if you don’t have the need for a formal dining room it would be a great family room or incredible work room.
The main sitting room is even larger, as soon as you walk in it just feels impressive, again with a huge feature bay window which lets the light pour in and the space and shape just gives so many options to furnish.
Moving to the rear of this interesting property you then have the heart of the home for many, a lovely re-fitted kitchen with contemporary style units and contrasting work surfaces and practical yet attractive dark grey flooring. The overall space here is triple aspect so again really light and bright with room to also have a breakfast table if this is how you live, the other huge plus is the much missed nowadays built-in pantry. The current breakfast room sits adjoining and is again a great size, scope here to open up?..... might be worth looking into. The inner hall that leads into this space than has a separate shower room and utility to the other side, great additions for modern day living.
Moving to the impressive first floor you have three vast bedrooms, and I mean vast. The master is 18 feet by 14 feet into a stunning feature bay window and has some sympathetically created built In storage so the overall floor space is immense, you then also have a lovely en suite bathroom to complete the look.
Bedrooms two and three are then again fantastic rooms with large windows and serviced by a family bathroom on the split level landing. Again you notice the amount of light that comes into this home, it makes such a huge difference.
Outside to the rear you can begin to piece together the frontage, that we have already covered, and the rear gardens to realise that this home is actually sat on a lovely size plot. The large block paved terrace is retained by a feature dwarf wall and extends out to give a fantastic space for relaxing, entertaining and bathing …when the sun returns! The main body of the garden is then laid to lawn with some well thought-out planting.
This is truly is a one off, unique, individual home and one that we would urge you to come and see for yourself.
