A rare timeless house, immaculate accommodation, plenty of parking, private gardens overlooking a nature reserve and watercress beds, walking distance of all amenities The property was originally built in the 1950s and subsequently has been completely remodelled and extended to create the rare detached timeless house that exists today. It is beautifully presented throughout. The house has most attractive stuccoed and colour washed elevations with inset double glazed windows under a slate and dormered roof with a balcony off the principal bedroom. The accommodation has been perfectly designed, it flows extremely well, most of the rooms enjoy views. It is light, well proportioned and on the ground floor there is the potential to create a self-contained annexe and even the garage building could also be converted subject to planning as there is plenty of parking at the front of the house. From the entrance porch a panel front door opens into the hall, an oak staircase rises to the galleried first floor landing, double doors lead into the dining room which in turn opens into the conservatory and onto the Victorian style glazed veranda, ideal for alfresco dining. There is a beautifully proportioned drawing room with contemporary style log burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is superbly fitted with bespoke units by Jaga which are oak and in part hand painted with granite worktops and bevelled edges. There is an island unit, integrated appliances, and limestone Travertine floor. The utility room has a range of units and matching floor. There is a shower room and door into the ground floor bedroom 4, which has an exterior door. It is also accessed from the hall and would be ideal for an elderly relative. There is also a study with fitted bookcase, cupboards and drawers. The first floor landing is part galleried and there is access into the roof space. The principal suite has a dressing room, shower room and a superb bedroom with double doors to a balcony with fine views over the garden and adjoining nature reserve. There are two further double bedrooms, one of which used to be two rooms and was combined into one plus there is a family bathroom. The Location The house is situated in a very special setting off West Street at the northern end of The Dean just before it reaches a wide sweep of the River Alre. On the eastern side of the house there are green views over former watercress beds, in part now created into a small nature reserve. There are beautiful river walks through to Ladywell Lane, Mill Hill and Broad Street, and all of the town's first class amenities are within walking distance. Outside An automatic gate gives access to the drive which provides ample parking and turning. There is an oak framed car port, beyond which is the garage and workshop. The latter has further access into the garden. Concealed behind the garage is a garden shed. The gardens have been meticulously landscaped and overlook the watercress beds and nature reserve. Adjoining the house there is a stone terrace and the veranda, a sweeping expanse of lawn, colourful rose beds, pleached hornbeam and the John Lewis pod.
