Huntingdon Road is an inner terraced townhouse, dating from 1842, with an ochre lime-washed brick front elevation with small pane sash windows beneath a slate roof.
The property extends to 1,675 sq ft with flexible and characterful accommodation laid out over 4 floors. The family room situated to the front of the property has independent access via a set of steps to the front of the house along with a large walk-in pantry/larder adjacent. To the rear is a kitchen/dining room which has ample space for an 6-8 seater dining table and space for a two oven Aga. From here there is direct access to the private terrace with delightful gardens beyond. At upper ground floor, accessed via stone steps to the front door is a wide entrance hall with elegant panelled staircase, to the right is the formal sitting room with wide fireplace, ornate ceiling cornicing, with painted panelled doors leading to the library/study. This attractive room is lined almost wall to wall with custom book-shelving, (behind one wall is the original door to the hall). To the rear, at the end of the hall is a cloakroom with feature washstand and basin with mahogany thunderbox WC.
There are 3 bedrooms on the first floor and a family bathroom, again with a white period suite and thunderbox WC, which includes a children's bedroom with custom cabin bed/wardrobe and a desk to the front of the property along with the master bedroom to the rear which has a large walk-in closet. This closet could easily be re-configured so as to create a larger second bedroom to the front if required. A larger 4th bedroom is situated on the top floor which has a wide dormer window to the rear overlooking the gardens.
The property, which is presented in a shabby chic' style has been occupied by the current owners for 30 years and has a gas central heating system and retains many original period features including panelled doors, cornicing, fireplaces and picture rails. 12 Huntingdon Road is available with no onward chain and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans.
The property is set slightly back from the pavement behind a dwarf retaining wall with steps rising and descending to the entrances. There is a private covered side passage (owned by adjoining property number 14) which leads to the rear. The long, fully enclosed garden comprises a full width private terrace providing ideal space for eating out, a circular terrace and lawns beyond along with neatly clipped yew bushes and tall mature specimen trees. To the far end are storage/garden sheds, a brick greenhouse along with a locked gate leading to a partially covered hard-standing which provides parking for 2/3 cars.
