A distinctive and characterful detached family home requiring some updating and modernisation, however very much lending itself to a tremendous scope for further development and extension (subject to planning/consents)
Built in around 1896, this late Victorian residence has beautifully proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors, extending in all to over 3000sq. ft.
The property is approached through a large and welcoming reception hall with staircase leading to the first floor, a style typical for a house of this importance. There is a large drawing room, separate large dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, study, larder/utility and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are 5 excellent bedrooms a separate bathrooms and separate shower room.
The existing garage may allow for conversion into a useful addition to the ground floor living space, whilst the existing conservatory to the side of the kitchen offers the potential for a substantial side return extension. For those wanting more garaging. from the 2nd (Lower Stanmore Road) entrance, there is scope for a replacement garage or car barn.
All suggested alterations or additions are subject to obtaining the usual consents.
OUTSIDE From Christchurch Road a driveway provides access and parking at the front of the house and to the double garage. The gardens to the front are limited, protected from the road by mature hedgerow, and a pathway leads round from the front of the house round to the side and to the main door to the house. The pathway continues through a wrought iron gate leading on to the rear gardens.
The rear gardens are laid mainly to lawn and are extensive, with an overall plot size of approximately 0.35 acres, importantly there is a separate access which can be found on the Stanmore Lane side of the property.
Overall a wonderful opportunity for the family and those seeking to create their long term family home.
