This Victorian cottage, built circa 1885, occupies a sizeable plot with front, side and rear gardens and simply must be seen.
Our clients purchased this house several years ago with the ambition to create a stylish family home. Great thought and planning went into this top to bottom renovation, including several major changes with no expense spared.
The first-floor layout was re-modelled to allow three large double bedrooms and a fully refitted family bathroom with additional shower. This coincided with the loft conversion and new ground floor layout giving the house a more modern open-plan feel. New staircases were installed with glass balustrades allowing natural light to flow through the house. A new central heating and water system with combi boiler has also been installed, cleverly located up in the loft and out of the way. A full ground floor mist sprinkler system and water supply integrated, gives this Victorian cottage the incredible achievement of 2018 Building Regulations certification. Removal of all existing damp, resulting in the full redecoration of the house and permanent prevention of any recurring future damp with injected Damp Proof Course and double-glazed windows all round. Finally, a stunning bespoke kitchen with matching utility room and WC finishes the huge list of works undertaken by the present owners. Amazingly though, they didn’t stop there, they have just completed a gorgeous single-storey side extension and front porch, adding further flexible reception space.
On first entering this lovely home, you’re welcomed by a brand new enclosed porch, this leads through to a spacious and light living room with feature fireplace, open to the dining room. The stairs with their glass balustrade and expose brick wall rise up to the first floor on one side, while the other has a lovely feature fireplace. This bright dining has a glass panel through to the new sitting room, allowing borrowed light to flow through both rooms. It is then open to the gorgeous dove grey bespoke kitchen with complimentary pale quartz worktops, white metro tiles, inset butlers sink and space for freestanding range style oven and built-in appliances. Just off the kitchen is the utility room and separate WC, this is such a must-have for any families and a fantastic addition. From the kitchen, there’s access out to the brand new sitting room measuring an impressive 15ft x 13ft and with a double aspect view of the landscaped garden. Large patio doors lead out to the huge remodelled wrap-around patio, making this an ideal space for entertaining.
Up to the first floor, there are three large double bedrooms, the master enjoying far-reaching views, and a luxury fitted bathroom. Fitted with an elegant roll top freestanding bath, white suite and separate shower cubicle, this cleverly thought out space offers both stylish design with functional use.
Going up again to the second floor, the loft has been converted into a 14ft bedroom with plenty of eaves storage and access through to the usable loft space providing ample storage and houses the updated combi-boiler.
Outside, there has been over 175m2 of new landscaping, including a new driveway for 4 - 5 cars, patio and seating area. To the front, the drive has ample off-street parking. The rear garden is well secluded with hedgerow and mature trees, a brand new private patio area with built-in bench seating, ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining, with access to the lawn and a large timber shed. There is handy side access leading back to the front and the stunning views out across neighbouring farmland.
