An elegantly extended and improved five bedroom link detached home on a renowned tree lined road in South Knighton. Stylish and spacious accommodation is complimented by an ample frontage and landscaped rear garden.
Property This substantial family home has been extensively extended to the side and rear to create a generous family home for 21st century living set within a period property. Following the redesign, a tasteful programme of decoration has been undertaken to match crisp neutral colours downstairs with a soft and calming colour palette upstairs.
The high specification refurbishment carefully carried out by the owners over time is immediately present upon entering the entrance hallway via the convenient porch. The generous accommodation comes in the form of a family room and the stunning open plan living dining kitchen; the bay fronted family room features treated floorboard flooring, exposed brickwork wall, and a striking marbled fireplace with decorative hearth surround. A semi-vaulted ceiling with large Velux windows floods the spacious room with natural light while inset chrome spotlights provide additional light when required. A range of luxurious shaker style units, softly curved on the ends, are met with a stone worksurface to incorporate an imposing black Smeg range style cooker with matching extractor over and a Belfast sink. A central, family friendly island with matching units and worksurface encompasses a wine fridge and three person breakfast bar. Beyond, a utility room leads to the garage storage space, thoughtfully created by the owners.
The upper floor boasts five bedrooms, four doubles and a generous single. The bay fronted master bedroom offers a TV point and ample space for large freestanding wardrobes while the second bedroom, with timber flooring, again offers a TV point and has been fitted with a range of wardrobes. Each bedroom shares access to the large, stylish family bathroom. The bathroom has been refitted with a distinctive roll top clawfoot bath with central taps and a handheld shower attachment, separate shower, wash hand basin, and WC.
Outside The contemporary designed frontage, sitting behind wrought iron railings and decorated with attractive shrubbery, offers car standing for a vehicle atop a block paved driveway leading to the car port and garage doors.
The rear garden has been landscaped to provide a serene space, ideal for both relaxing and entertaining. A slabbed patio directly outside the property narrows to become a pathway border for the well-maintained lawn leading to the bottom of the garden where a secondary decked patio is found complete with an entertaining bar. Established flowerbeds and a mature tree provide a burst of colour while privacy is enjoyed thanks to timber fencing.
