A classic six-bedroom, red brick Edwardian residence designed for the growing family of approximately 460 sq. m / 4,951 sq. ft. Built c. 1910 by GT Crampton, the property has been substantially extended and upgraded to provide extra space in the form of media room and gym at the lower level and a state of the art kitchen/dining/family area which is flooded with natural light.
A set of Granite steps lead to a recessed porch with attractive mosaic floor tile. The original hall door with transom window above, opens to the entrance hall. To the left is a guest toilet with Marble floor and cloaks area. The front reception room is a bespoke office with corner desk, storage units and library shelving. The second reception room is a cosy TV room with original marble fireplace, picture, rails, decorative cornicing, and together with bespoke storage units/shelving and a bay window overlooking the front garden.

There are polished Granite worktops with feature Granite splashback with gas ring hob and stainless-steel cooker hood.
