DESCRIPTION This is one of just five apartments in this converted Victorian house. The current owners acquired the cellar approximately three years ago and have creatively extended to incorporated it into a stunning three bedroom apartment with a beautiful bespoke kitchen/diner, living room and study area. The apartment benefits from a share of the freehold, an entry phone system and a Hive heating system.
An attractive, covered porch gives access to the spacious, well maintained communal entrance hall with a part glazed front door with stained glass above. The private front door opens to the entrance hall with loft access (boarded and with ladder and light), window to the side and a storage area. Oak laminate flooring runs through most of the apartment. The three bedrooms are found on this floor, all with attractive Victorian style radiators. The master bedroom is extremely spacious with high ceilings, a picture rail and decorative cornicing. There is a beautiful cast iron working fireplace with a wooden mantle and a stone hearth, two built in wardrobes with storage above and doors opening to the private terrace. The second bedroom is, again, a generously sized double room with a window to the front and an attractive alcove. Bedroom three has a window to the side and doors opening to the private terrace. There is a family bathroom comprising a roll top bath with hand held shower and mixer tap, w.c., pedestal wash hand basin, newly installed shower cubicle, heated towel rail, waterproof laminate flooring, a window to the side and a cupboard housing the boiler.
A staircase leads from the ground floor to the beautifully converted cellar area. Great thought has been put into the design of this area to provide flowing accommodation including a study area, living room and bespoke kitchen/diner. The cellar is fully tanked and has a number of light wells, along with inset LED daylight bulbs giving a natural light effect. The study comes complete with bespoke fitted bookcases, a desk, built in storage cupboards and a Victorian style radiator. An opening leads to the living room with an attractive light well with two windows built into a ‘bay’. Again, there is built in shelving and storage, along with a Victorian style radiator. A further opening and a step down leads to the fabulous kitchen/dining room with a tasteful range of wall and base units with under unit lighting and a wooden worktop over. Integrated appliances include a microwave, washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is also space for a range style cooker with an extractor fan over. There is a window to the front of the property along with a door with steps to the parking area – thus giving private access directly to the apartment. There is plenty of space for a good sized dining table. A cloakroom is located just off the kitchen with a two in one wash basin and toilet.
OUTSIDE The apartment benefits from a private garden to the rear, accessed from two of the bedrooms and with gated access to the front and a shed. The garden is well screened by mature trees to the rear and is surprisingly secluded with a mix of paved and decked areas. To the front is a shed and a garage both with power and lighting. There is also further parking.
