Dating back to the 1950s, this traditional terraced house has been totally transformed following major extension works that have more than doubled its original floor area.
From the outside, the property retains its period character, but step inside and it quickly becomes apparent that this is very much a 21st century home, cleverly designed, beautifully finished, immaculately presented and overflowing with stylish features that would not look out of place in the pages of a glossy magazine.
The transformation took place in 2015, when the current owners proceeded with major architect-designed extension works that dramatically increased the property’s original footprint, bringing its overall size up to almost 1,100 sq ft.
Extending the property in this way resulted in the creation of a new bathroom and larger entrance hall to the front, an unusually large utility room to the side, and a new dining room and lounge to the rear.
Downstairs accommodation begins with that extended hall, a bright and airy space, with an eye-catching tiled floor. Directly off this is the well-appointed modern bathroom with walk-in shower.
The hall also leads on to the hub of the home in the form of an exceptionally large open-plan living room/kitchen/dining room/lounge measuring over 500 square feet. This inviting living space spans the entire length of the extended ground floor from the living room window at the front, through a beautifully styled contemporary kitchen and dining space flooded by natural light from a large skylight, to a relaxing lounge where a trifold glass door seamlessly connects the house to the back garden patio.
This open-plan space attracts sunlight throughout the day, through the rear windows and patio door early in the day, then through the front living room window in the afternoon and evening.
To the side of the ground floor, and accessed from both the hall and dining room, is the larger than average utility room with an extra high celing, extensive storage and countertop space, and more than enough room to accommodate a range of appliances.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms (one currently in use as a home office) and the main bathroom, all presented and finished to the high standard that is the hallmark of this house.
The property is enhanced by a host of stylish features including semi-solid floors, bespoke built-in living room presses and shelving, high gloss kitchen and utility room units, and compressed stone worktops.
Outside, there are low maintenance gardens to the front and rear. The walled and gated front garden is entirely set out in cobble lock to provide generous off-street parking for two cars. The front drive is also provided with an EV (Electric Vehicle) charging point.
To the rear, the trifold door leads directly onto an extensive east-facing patio ideal for entertaining friends, having a barbeque or simply basking in the sun on a warm summer’s day. All gardens are fully enclosed with six-foot concrete base/poles, with a wooden fence at the rear.
