Property SummaryA four bedroom Victorian villa in a prime position on one of South Knighton's most desired roads offering scope for extensions and a complete redesign subject to planning permission. Early viewing essential.
This property offers a rare and exciting opportunity for the purchaser to acquire a home with the scope for both extensions and an internal redesign to suit individual requirements and style. The layout follows that of the traditional four bedroomed Victorian villa; accommodation comes in the form of a bay fronted living room which flows openly into the once separated dining room to the rear. The entrance hall runs from the storm porch to the kitchen with the wall from the dining room having been removed. The kitchen is positioned to the back of the property and provides the potential to be transformed into the focal point of this family home either via interior styling or commonly seen extensions to the side and/or rear, subject to planning permission.
The staircase from the entrance hall leads up to the first floor where purchasers are greeted with a stunning galleried landing. Four bedrooms are positioned off the landing; there are three good sized doubles and an additional single making the ideal home office or nursery. Currently, each of the bedrooms would share use of the family bathroom but with endless potential to forge stylish ensuites from the existing space.
This property offers a traditional frontage set behind a low level brick wall. Access is granted via an opening in the wall with a pathway leading to the front door with transom window over.
The garden is a good sized space and enjoys highly private side and rear aspects. Offering an opportunity to be landscaped to personal taste, a large slabbed patio, with outbuildings to one side and a brick wall border to the other side, leads down to the lawn. Mature, evergreen hedging and trees offer all year greenery and a sense of serenity.
