With flexible accommodation it is possible to create an annex within the house.
The property is entered via a meandering path through the stunning south facing front garden. Walking through bespoke locally made wrought iron gates onto the sun terrace you enter the house through the part glazed door into an impressive grand entrance hall with original Victorian tiles.
The double aspect south facing living room has a beautiful marble fireplace with wood burner whilst at the other end of the room is a window seat in the bay window overlooking the front garden, the perfect place to relax with a book. The TV room/Playroom is also double aspect with a period fireplace and French doors onto the sun terrace. The large dining room is conveniently located opposite the kitchen and comes with a fireplace with a woodburner and views over the side garden.

The rear entrance hall comes with ample space for boots has a fitted seating area with storage under and a glazed door leads out to the rear terrace and garden.
From the hallway stairs up lead to the half landing where the family bathroom is located, this has been newly fitted and is fully tiled with a large walk in shower. There is a door to a room currently used as a small games room off which are stairs up to bedroom 5/the annex bedroom and a staircase down to the utility room/what could be the annex kitchen.
Proceeding up to the large bright landing there are four very generous double bedrooms, with stripped wood flooring throughout. The south facing master bedroom suite has a double aspect and striking feature wall. This is a warm cosy room in spite of its large size and has a sumptuous ensuite bathroom with a modern slipper style bath and two basins. There is a further bedroom suite with a newly fitted and fully tiled shower room, and then there are a further two double bedrooms, both with lovely Victorian fireplaces.
The house has 2 entrances, from Bridgetown Hill there is a pedestrian gateway which follows a pretty path winding its way through the immaculate garden filled with many mature shrubs in cleverly designed terraces and 7 fruit trees producing hints of a mini orchard. There are then steps up to a large paved sun terrace which is fully enclosed by bespoke handmade metal railings. A stunning mature wisteria covers much of the front of the house which makes this front terrace a total joy throughout the summer.
The current owners have designed the west facing rear terrace for entertaining. With fitted bar with beer pumps, cooler and gas below as well as space for optics it is the perfect place to relax in the evening. There is a bespoke sitting area that takes advantage of the morning sun whilst at the other end is a 5 person Aspen Spa hot tub with awning to really kick back after a long day.
