35 Hurst Park Avenue is a beautifully presented, skilfully enlarged and recently refurbished semi-detached house, originally constructed in the early 1930's of brick and rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof. The property has been subject to a superb extension and refurbishment program during 2014/2015 which includes an ambitious reconfiguration of the ground floor, cleverly designed and overseen by award winning London based architects Gort Scott.
Of particular interest is the now open plan kitchen/dining area which is largely glazed to the rear and refitted with substantial central marble island with breakfast bar to one end along with integrated dishwasher and cupboards and drawers beneath. There is a further comprehensive range of matching matt grey cabinetry which includes twin Neff ovens, fridge/freezer and deep recessed oak display shelving. There is a glazed roof over the breakfast bar which allows for plenty of light, along with further roof glazing that leads toward the snug and study area. To the rear is a fantastic sunken sitting room, with grey resin feature floor, steep oak strip vaulted ceilings and part glazed roof along with oak window seating and a pair of substantial bi-folding glazed doors which allow for great views over the garden. The remainder of the ground floor has been fitted with beautiful wide Danish douglas fir plank floorboards. To the front of the property is a further sitting/play/family room with wide double glazed bay window, space for a wood-burning stove with recessed cabinetry and shelving.
At first floor are 4 bedrooms which includes 3 large doubles. The bay fronted master bedroom has an original fireplace and tiled hearth, another double bedroom also has a fire place and views onto the vaulted sedum roof. The bathroom is of particular interest and has been re-fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware, handmade encaustic tiled floor and has a huge wet shower area with roof light.
The original house still retains many original features such as panelled doors and picture rails which combined with the very modern Scandinavian' open plan accommodation, works very well.
The accommodation which includes a further shower/laundry room has a gas fired central heating system and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans.
The property is set back from Hurst Park Avenue beyond a lawned front garden with pebbled driveway for one car, to the left is an attractive cobbled pathway leading to the covered front door. There are a pair of painted double (former) garage doors which now lead to a small internal store, suitable for bicycles and bins etc.
The rear garden is deep, south west facing and laid mostly to lawn and enclosed by tall fencing. It is partly walled with a paved terrace adjacent which provides ample space for eating out and barbequing. The garden is rather private and has a wide variety of mature trees and established shrubs including apple, holly and cherry. To the far end of the garden is an enclosed area for children's play such as trampoline etc, timber garden shed next to an area planted with bamboo.
