BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN VILLA - Having spoken to the owners on the phone and listened to them describe their home I was incredibly intrigued to see what I was walking into, it sounded too good to be true but I have to say it was everything they said and more. We often talk about `one offs` but Glenask House truly is unique and is backed up with a high quality of finish and versatile accommodation.
Upon arrival to Glenask House you drive onto the large driveway with space for all the family and the front elevation is truly understated to what is waiting for you inside.
Upon entry you are welcomed into a beautiful entrance hall and the charming character features that come with a house built in 1865, the high ceilings throughout and the original wood flooring.
The family room is to the front of the house with dual aspect to create a light airy feel in the day and wall lights and a log burner for the warm cosy feel for the evening.
Further down the hallway is the first downstairs toilet before you get to the living room.
The living room is vast, being over 30 feet in length truly does have room for all the family.
To the rear of the hallway are two versatile rooms we have listed as a work shop and conservatory which are open to interpretation on use based on the new owners lifestyle.
The kitchen area is ideal for entertaining, beautifully installed with an island with an integrated oven, hob and the Aga. The flooring in the kitchen has been insulated and the owners installed the York Stone floor. The kitchen also has a pantry which is designed to stay cool and a dining area.
To the rear is more kitchen space, to keep some appliances such as the sink outside the entertaining area. Through this area is the boot room with another downstairs WC which has a cupboard which houses the new pressurised water tank.
To access the upstairs we have a choice of two staircases the one in the hallway arrives on the landing in a more conventional way, the staircase to the rear on the house brings you into bedroom four, ideal for giving somebody their own space.
The main bedroom is to the front of the house with built in wardrobes and has a free standing bath in the corner and a WC tucked away in its own room.
The property has another double bedroom with views onto the rear garden. The family bathroom is a four piece bathroom with three windows to let in plenty of natural light.
For the four further bedrooms Glenask House gets a little more interesting with the bedrooms access off eachother and having the staircase access from bedroom four this part of the upstairs becomes open to the new owners interpretation and can be used to suit their lifestyle.
Onto the outside, to the side of the property is a private courtyard area. The rear garden is south facing and has a patio area which leads onto grass, to the top of the garden is an outbuilding which is used as the study and has full electric along with an air conditioning unit to keep the study useable all year round.
