This striking period property is a Georgian family home and, together with its 1.2acres (tbv) has an immediate sense of grandeur. It is approached via two brick pillars on either side of wrought iron gates leading to a parking area for numerous cars. Beyond this is a paved courtyard with an entrance to the lobby and kitchen to the left. Ahead there is an outbuilding, currently used as offices with two windows overlooking the courtyard together with storage areas above, adjacent and to the rear which offers the potential to create a separate annexe (STPP).

Entering the house, there is a quarry tiled floor in the lobby leading into the kitchen with the breakfast room up a few steps and to the left. The kitchen has a good range of white wall and base units with marble effect white work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Bosch dishwasher, Neff double electric oven and a Neff 5-ring gas burner with space for both a large free-standing fridge and also a freezer. There is a one and a half bowl sink beneath the window overlooking the sunny courtyard with another large window further along and a smaller window at the far end. Beyond this, to the left, is a utility area with space for further appliances, a wide shelf for storage and a base unit beneath a window overlooking the garden together with a chrome ladder style radiator.

Returning to the kitchen, a few steps up to the left is the breakfast room which has ample space for a large table and chairs. There is a large sash window to the left, original Georgian cupboards and an archway to the right leading to the family/playroom. This has excellent proportions with its high ceiling and dual aspect sash windows to the front and the side of the house. If preferred, the family room adjacent to the breakfast room could be re-configured to be open plan.

Across the hallway are further reception rooms and the real sense of grandeur of this large, family home is apparent given the imposing Georgian front door with large brass knocker and opening to give a view of the grand staircase ahead with curved stair rail. Of the three reception rooms, ahead is the formal dining room which has a fireplace suitable for an open fire or to install a wood burner and there is a quarry tiled hearth and wood surround. The room is dual aspect with a sash window to the side with French doors ahead complete with French style handles and opening to the garden with brick paved steps down and a pathway along to the West facing stone terrace further along.

Again, there are original, period cupboards and a sash window at the far end. Ahead and to the right, is the cloakroom with a white WC and wash hand basin. Opposite and under the stairs is the doorway for the cellar which is a good size and the oil- fired boiler is located here.

Further along is the spacious sitting room with double glazed picture windows at the far end and double windows along the other wall. The focal point in the room is the fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a brick hearth and surround together with a bressummer beam and shelving on either side creating a homely feel in a spacious room to be enjoyed winter or summer.

Moving upstairs, there are 5 double bedrooms and a delightfully quirky layout characteristic of a period property with some steps up in either direction from the spacious landing.

Currently, it is used as a bedsit with a double bed at the far end opposite one of the windows. Next there is a shower cubicle and wash hand basin and then a study /seating area with settee on one side and computer desk on the other side under the window.

Arriving at the property there are brick pillars and wrought iron gates leading to an area of parking for numerous cars.
