This delightful property has undergone an extensive programme of redesign since its most recent purchase in 2017. Both remodelling and redecoration were undertaken in order to create contemporary living space with a high specification finish. The resulting accommodation is ideal for modern living while a wealth of restored period features still bring a strong sense of character. The bright and airy entrance hall, with its stripped back staircase and striking geometric floor tiling, grants access into the principle downstairs rooms which come in the form of a living room, sitting room, and dining kitchen. Both the living room and sitting room enjoy an abundance of natural light thanks to their bay windows. A part glazed door leads into the living room, a space elegantly decorated in a neutral stone colour with a bold blue feature wall encompassing the intricately finished original fireplace. Ornate cornicing to the ceiling and a crisp white picture rail serve as reminders of this property's rich history. The sitting room enjoys the highly private front aspect and again is embellished by cornicing and a picture rail to juxtapose the modern colour palette used for decoration. Laminate flooring is complementary to the solid timber fireplace surround which incorporates the log burner. The dining kitchen has undergone a complete transformation to provide the ideal sociable family space, complete with a large island. Bespoke shaker style wall and base units are finished with gold brushed handles and topped with a quartz worksurface encompassing a Belfast sink with chrome up and over tap. The stunning exposed brickwork walls perfectly complement the warm tiled flooring and contrast the cooler blue fitted units. Appliances include the large range style cooker with sleek extractor hood over and an integrated dishwasher. The island, comprising matching units, is topped with a solid timber worksurface, overhanging to provide a space for informal dining. The more formal dining space sits within the extension with its wonderful semi-vaulted ceiling; natural light is provided in abundance thanks to the large Velux window and fully glazed double doors which lead to the garden. Beyond, a convenient utility room offers ample space for further storage and washing appliances.
Three double bedrooms are found to the split level first floor; all bedrooms are positioned off the beautiful galleried landing which is illuminated by the large window over the half landing. Each bedroom offers ample space for furniture and storage and shares use of the fully tiled, modern family bathroom. Luxury sanitarware includes a freestanding bath with central taps, a separate shower with unusual rainfall shower head, contemporary wash hand basin, chrome heated towel rail, and WC with concealed cistern.
Rising again, two further bedrooms are presented. The generous bedrooms feature semi-vaulted ceilings and are decorated with modern colours, perfectly complementing the wooden flooring. Both bedrooms benefit from stylish ensuite shower rooms comprising a shower cubicle and wash hand basin with shared access to a separate WC.
This delightful end villa, with the highly sought after addition of off road parking and a detached garage, is positioned on the corner of Cross Road where it meets Clarendon Park Road. The quaint frontage is decorated with well maintained hedging and attractive shrubbery while a pathway leads to the entrance door.
The stunning courtyard garden offers the ideal space for relaxing and entertaining and features block paving with privacy provided by well established trees, shrubbery, and hedging.
