A BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN DETACHED FAMILY HOME OF GREAT STYLE AND CHARACTER CLOSE TO THE NOWER ..... Old Tiles is a handsome and imposing Victorian residence of great character which has been comprehensively modernised and refurbished by the current owners to a very high standard. Many fine traditional features have been retained, including the distinctive Gothic arch windows, traditional panelled doors, sliding sash windows, and original fireplaces. The accommodation briefly comprises; impressive entrance porch with substantial front door leading to an attractive reception hall. The drawing room located at the front of the house is a delightful room featuring a recently installed Stovax wood burning stove and a wide bay window. To the rear, the superbly appointed kitchen/breakfast room with hand-made kitchen furniture and appliances by Thyme for Kitchens is an excellent feature of the house and enjoys a lovely aspect over the property's secluded rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room provides generous room for eating and is ideal for dinner parties. Also to the rear of the house, there is a study, again enjoying a pleasant aspect over the garden. The lower ground floor provides additional accommodation which could either be used within the main part of the house, or perhaps as accommodation for visiting relatives etc. Here, there is a sitting room, second kitchen and bedroom/further reception room. There is also a shower room and a utility room. To the first floor, the master bedroom enjoys a southerly aspect and has a dressing room, en-suite shower room, and a delightful double glazed timber-framed conservatory which makes for a very pleasant seating area on sunny mornings. There is a second bedroom which is currently used as a sitting room and a large well appointed bathroom and separate WC. To the top floor, there are three further double bedrooms and a shower room. The gardens have been sensitively and cleverly landscaped and are a delightful feature of Old Tiles. To the front, seclusion is provided by screening shrubs together with a magnolia tree. A gated and partly covered side access to the western side of the house leads via a wide pathway to the rear garden and wide raised sun terrace. The gardens here again enjoy a good degree of seclusion thanks to the many established shrubs. There is a magnificent sequoia tree and the rear garden is entirely walled, adding to the sense of privacy. A raised decking area at the end of the garden makes for a very comfortable seating area looking back to the attractive rear elevation of Old Tiles. To the eastern side of the house is an integral garage with a workshop area at the rear. Parking is located to the front of the garage.
