A beautiful family home that our clients called theirs for over two decades. Sadly divorce meant they needed a strong agent to handle this sale delicately due to the family dynamic and discretion was key. It was no easy feat achieving 4.7% over the asking price in one of the year's quieter months (November 2022), especially considering the decline we were seeing in the market at the time owing to rate rises.
Presented in fantastic condition, this loved family home has dual receptions at the front, a large kitchen to the rear, a beautiful southeast facing garden and a loft conversion with a beautiful master bedroom and ensuite on the top floor.
To the front of the house are the dual reception rooms; they’ve the original wood floors and both have period fireplaces which create a lovely, homely vibe. The windows are in fantastic condition and alongside the cornicing are thought to be original.
The kitchen is to the rear, which is generously proportioned but could also be extended if desired. It’s a beautifully bright space due to its southeast facing aspect and has a lovely view over the garden. There’s plenty of worktop space, room for a dining table and masses of storage as well as a useful utility room/pantry coming off the Kitchen.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, a study and a large family bathroom, all of the bedrooms are double bedrooms, and the study room could be knocked back into the room adjacent as it was originally, although many families may be grateful for the study to work from home in. The family bathroom is really well presented, it’s large enough to accommodate a walk-in shower and full size bath if desired.
On the top floor is the master suite in the loft conversion, which has a wonderful view over the gardens, integrated wardrobes and a beautiful ensuite with walk-in shower. There are skylights on one side of the room and a large window overlooking the gardens on the other side, making for an incredibly bright space.
The garden is lush and green and has a lovely southeast facing aspect, there’s a patio directly off the kitchen and lush green lawn at the rear of the garden, it has an eastern aspect but also is also exposed to the south making for a particularly bright space for most of the day.
