With shared driveway road access off the A38, this charming four bedroom red brick home is set back and elevated from the road on a lovely plot of land offering landscaped garden, a detached double garage with power and off-road parking for several vehicles. This period property was originally a former police house and the current owners are only the second family to live in the home.
Upon entering this double fronted property you will find a small porch leading into a large hallway which offers access to all four reception rooms, a downstairs shower room, and the stairs leading to the upstairs accommodation.
The main reception room is located to the front of the property and is a superb size, offering a real feel of grandeur with wooden parquet flooring throughout, elevated ceilings lined with beautiful cornice edge detail and round pendant drop light surround. There is a cast iron open fireplace with black surround and marble hearth, dual aspect front and side views with a lovely bay fronted area and bespoke white wooden fitted shutters.
There is a spacious drawing room which is also located to the front of the property on the other side of the hallway which has been carpeted throughout and also offers similar period features such as a working open fireplace, cornice detail, wooden shutters and tall ceilings. There is side access into the garden from this room and the walls have been half wood-panelled and painted grey to create a contemporary yet traditional space to relax in.
The dining room offers the same period features throughout including a fireplace currently used for log storage, side view and plenty of space for a formal table and chairs. This room has been tiled throughout and opened up by an archway into the kitchen to create an open-plan atmosphere and integrate the functions of the rooms.
The kitchen is the heart of the downstairs accommodation as it has been completely renovated by the current owners to include a fantastic selection of base units and a sociable central island. With a tall elevated ceiling which slopes down supported by exposed beams, this room offers real character and charm with plenty of space for entertaining guests. There is a range of integrated MIELE appliances with this kitchen layout to include a dishwasher, oven, induction touch sensor hob and hood. There is plenty of additional room for display/kitchenware cabinets and a tall fridge freezer. The worktops have been finished with a warm solid wood worktop with traditional cut out Belfast sink. The central island has under-counter space and houses the included Miele wine cooler as well as other storage base cabinets and is finished with a sleek white glitter stone worktop with overhang space so that guests can comfortably sit at the island whilst food is being prepared. The walls have been tiled with white high gloss brick bevelled tiles and the window looks out from the sink area into the rear garden and patio.
There is a useful utility room off the kitchen to the rear of the property which offers plenty of space for laundry appliances with a window into the neighbouring potting shed, both with doors that open out onto the enclosed gardens.
There is also a conservatory off the entrance hallway which has lino flooring and offers access via double doors onto the patio area.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a large downstairs shower room which has been tiled throughout and offers WC, basin and single shower enclosure.
Upstairs there is a large landing area with loft access, four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
