This truly handsome double fronted detached residence is a fine example of classic Victorian architecture with its bay windows and light and spacious interior. The current owners have presented it not only to a high standard but have also encapsulated the period features in the best possible light and have created a wonderful family home which has grand proportions. The gardens are also a real treat but we will get to that later.
Accommodation is arranged over two floors with the second floor being slightly split level with a short staircase leading to the master bedroom and bedroom two. Upon entering the ground floor via the entrance porch, you enter into an attractive reception hall which has original Victorian floor tiles and pine feature staircase to first floor. The hall leads to a WC, deep coat cupboard and utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, large sink and shower cubicle. The impressive dual aspect sitting room is to the front of the house and has high ceilings with Victorian cornicing, wood framed double glazed sash windows, stripped wooden floorboards and open fireplace with mantle. The second reception room feature stall windows with views to the rear, a working fireplace, stripped wood floorboards, picture rails and cornicing.
At the rear of the house is the dining room, with fireplace and stripped wooden floorboards leading in to the kitchen which makes this space the hub of the home. It’s an ideal space for dining, entertaining or a great place for kids to get the homework done whilst making the evening meal. The kitchen has a door leading out onto a lovely deck which is perfect for alfresco dining in the summer months and has a wonderful outlook over the beautiful gardens below.
On the first floor are four spacious light and airy rooms which include the master bedroom which has a walk in wardrobe/cupboard and a very well appointed en suite bathroom with a range of 'Heritage' fittings, shower over bath with rain shower and separate hose shower, wash hand basin and WC. All bedrooms fit double beds and enjoy plenty of light with picture rails and sash windows. The master bedroom and bedroom two both have double glazed wood sash windows. A family bathroom and separate WC services all other bedrooms and has a shower over bath with a white suite.
The delightful rear gardens have been beautifully tended by the current owner with a large lawn surrounded by well-structured borders that are well established and provide colour throughout spring into autumn. There is a compost area at the bottom end of the garden, pond area with attractive plants and a suntrap of a courtyard to the rear along with timber shed for garden storage. Gated access leads around to the front where you will find the single garage and driveway with parking.
The property is conveniently situated just a short walk from local amenities, the mainline rail station (London Paddington c.1 hour, Bath c12 mins and Bristol c25 mins) and town centre with its numerous amenities. Schools including two highly rated senior schools and junction 17 of the M4 motorway are also within easy reach.
