This well-proportioned property dates back to 1860 and has family orientated accommodation behind a striking red brick façade with stucco quoining under a tiled roof. The property is set back from the pavement behind a wall and railings with a closely cropped hedge providing privacy with a pedestrian gate to the front door. The welcoming entrance hall has plenty of storage and a polished mahogany handrail that leads up the stairs to the first floor. The drawing room is to the front of the house and has a large bay window, high ceilings with cornicing and a traditional fireplace flanked by bespoke fitted bookcases. The sitting/family room has a fireplace and is a cosier space with doors that open into the large open plan kitchen which has been extended into the side return, and has a roof lantern over the kitchen with a centralised island/ breakfast counter. This space opens to the dining room which has plenty of room for a table and chairs. Twin sets of French doors open out onto the terrace directly behind the house which is a perfect sheltered and private spot ideal for dining al fresco. The first floor has two double bedrooms, as well as bedroom five/study served by a refitted shower room. The second floor is approached via a turning staircase which is flooded with natural light from the rear aspect window. A refitted bathroom with shower and separate bath serves the remaining two double bedrooms. The west facing rear garden has been beautifully landscaped. The lower terrace has steps onto a lawned area and from here a path leads to a further raised terrace and a gate to the residents' on-street permit parking on Edgar Road. To the side of the property is a covered area providing good storage for bikes.
