This stylish and substantial period house, believed to have been built in 1926, is a fine example of the period and enjoys an unrivalled position, on the private part of this prestigious tree lined road, flanked by Hervines Park. Built in a mixture of half timbered, rendered, brick and tile hung elevations, the original part of the house has many period features. These are centred on the impressive reception hall with fine oak panelling and staircase; with the principal rooms having open
fireplaces with brick, tile and timbered surrounds. Some of the original leaded light windows have been sensitively replaced and reflect the level of detail and investment, made by the present owners. Later additions to the original house are the leisure complex, incorporating an indoor heated swimming pool and separate gym. A changing room and sauna, along with a shower room and cloakroom, service both this area and the first floor entertainment area. This offers a substantial games room, with space for a full size snooker table, a self-contained south facing studio, service kitchen and bedroom with en suite cloakroom. Reached via a second staircase, this part of the house has been greatly enjoyed for a variety of occasions and enjoys great versatility for entertainment across both floors. The original reception rooms of the house are a fine dining room and drawing room which flank the reception hall. The latest extension to the house is the modern home hub of a generous kitchen/breakfast/ family room, where the family enjoy the majority of their time. A bespoke hand built kitchen leads to a breakfast area with space for a large table and onto a comfortable family seating area. From here further reception space is offered by a cosy sitting room and study, both quietly located to the rear of the house and well placed to enjoy views of the garden. The study/bedroom 5 has an en suite shower room, affording the convenience of ground floor bedroom
accommodation if needed. In addition to this wide selection of ground floor reception rooms and leisure suite, is a bespoke fully equipped home office on the first floor. This location facilitates uninterrupted working space within the home, or alternatively could add a seventh bedroom. The principal fine oak main staircase rises to a landing with generous space for furnishing and onto the master suite with its own dressing room and en suite bathroom. Two guest/family suites with a further bedroom and family bathroom complete the bedroom accommodation to this part of the house. The house affords up to seven bedrooms if required with a total of six bath or shower facilities.
