DESCRIPTION 159b St John's Road is a most intriguing property, forming part of what was originally a large detached house built in the 1920s and divided many years ago into two completely separate dwellings The current owners have re-configured and renovated the property introducing contemporary influences with meticulous attention to detail to create what is now a very impressive family home. The spacious, flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors and points of particular note include: - ACCOMMODATION * The vaulted kitchen/breakfast room really is most impressive and is exceptionally well-fitted and equipped with a good range of high-quality built-in cupboards and drawers, large central island and a range of integrated appliances including built-in double Neff oven and induction hob, AEG dishwasher and a tall fridge/freezer. There is plenty of space for a large kitchen table and this whole area enjoys the benefit of underfloor heating. Two sets of French doors lead out onto the paved rear terrace and large, well-stocked rear garden. * The exceptionally spacious dining room works equally well as a family room and has French doors leading out onto the rear garden. * The sitting room is also a good size and has an attractive polished wood floor, stairs rising to the first floor and glazed double doors lead to the study/3rd bedroom. * The ground floor shower room is luxuriously appointed and has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. * On the first floor there are two good double bedrooms, both served by a beautifully fitted bathroom. * There is full planning consent to convert the garage and the space above into additional accommodation, if required.
