18 Gilbert Road is a 1930's semi-detached house on the corner of Gurney Way built of rendered brick elevations beneath a tiled roof.
The property has been considerably extended and refurbished by the current owners to create an attractive family home whilst retaining a number of period features including Art Deco fireplaces, panelled doors, leaded stained glass windows, and picture rails.
The property is entered through a panelled black gloss front door which leads through a vestibule, which makes an excellent boot room and coat closet, into a stripped wood floor hallway which communicates with the principle rooms.
To the left there are two doors leading to a double reception room with a fireplace and large bay window overlooking the front garden. This lovely room with a second feature Art Deco fireplace leads through to the kitchen which is also accessed from the hall.
This is the heart of the property in every sense with plenty of natural light from two sets of bi-folding doors which lead out to the terrace and gardens beyond in addition to two large ceiling lights. The German made kitchen, by Nolte, has ample floor and wall mounted cabinetry with Dekton work surfaces is further enhanced by underfloor heating (wet system) and a Quooker boiling water tap. There is a large cooking island with four ring Miele induction hob with wide and deep pan drawers on either side. In addition to an integrated combination microwave oven, fan assisted oven, and dishwasher all by Miele and a large fridge and freezer by Hotpoint, which are also integrated. A WC and separate utility room which can access the terrace completes the ground floor accommodation.
The quality continues upstairs, accessed by a wide stairway, where there are three bedrooms on the first floor all with 1930's Art Deco feature fireplaces. There is a family bathroom with white sanitary ware, marble flooring wall and splash back tiles, stainless steel fittings with a bath and separate shower.
On the second floor there is a further double bedroom with en suite bathroom with a freestanding bath.
Outside, the rear landscaped and terraced gardens can be accessed either through the house or garage, are laid mainly to lawn, bordered by raised sleepers with mature trees and shrubs. The terrace, made up of Porcelanosa tiles to mirror the interior tiles in the kitchen, runs across the back and side of the property.
The front gardens with mature hedging and deep beds surrounding a lawn has gravelled driveway for a couple of cars leading to a garage.
