24 Denham Green Terrace is an exceptional end-terrace family home offering spacious, bright and flexible accommodation set over ground, first and second floors. With aspects to the north, east and west the property benefits from an abundance of natural light throughout the day, further enhanced by the large cupola crowning the stair. The property retains much of its original charm with a variety of period features including the cornicing, stripped timber floors, original timber stair and charming mantelpieces. Yet, the property caters perfectly for modern family needs with excellent living and reception space over both the ground and first floors, complemented by five bedrooms between the first and second floors.
The front door opens to an entrance vestibule and on into the hall, from where the main reception rooms are accessed and the stair rises to the first floor. Of particular note is the superb open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room with both north and west aspects. It is ideal for modern family living, and benefits from an Aga as well as a well appointed kitchen while at the living end of the room, there is an open fire. The utility room is situated off the kitchen and has additional units and a door leading to the garden. Stairs rise to the original maid's room which makes a superb home office. To the other side of the hall lie the elegant dining room, with delightful cornicing and mantelpiece, as well as the morning room, which is used currently as a music room, but could be another home office. There is also a WC on this level as well as excellent under stair storage.
On the first floor is the spectacular drawing room which spans the width of the house and has a bay-window, as well as two further windows, making it incredibly light. There are two generous double bedrooms as well as a family bathroom. The stair rises to the second floor, where there are three further bedrooms and an additional shower room.
The house sits back from the road and is well screened by a mature hedge making it extremely private. The front garden borders the front and side of the house with an extensive stone terrace and mature herbaceous borders with a variety of plants and shrubs providing colour for much of the year. The majority of the garden is situated to the west of the house, with an undisturbed southern aspect allowing for plenty of sunshine during the afternoons. A patio borders the side of the house and is ideal for external dining, while the beds surrounding the lawn are well stocked with a wide variety of colourful plants and shrubs.
