Property SummaryAn exquisitely finished three bedroom detached property on a renowned road in South Knighton having undergone a rear extension and comprehensive refurbishment to provide a stunning family home.
This property offers the exciting opportunity to acquire a Victorian family home that has been comprehensively refurbished to the highest standard to provide greatly desired open plan living space, thoughtfully created by the rear extension. Together with the extension, the home has been completely rewired, replumbed, replastered, and decorated and carpeted neutrally throughout.
A welcoming entrance hallway with open under stair storage grants access to the principle rooms. The wealth of well-proportioned accommodation comes in the form of a bay-fronted living room with working fireplace and stunning open plan living dining kitchen. Stylish tiled flooring, with underfloor heating, flows through the vast open space with an abundance of natural light oozing into the room via the pair of wide sliding doors ; inset chrome spotlights provide additional light when required. The bespoke kitchen has been installed to one side and provides a range of contemporary handleless grey matt wall base units with a stone worksurface encompassing an integrated dishwasher, double oven, and sink with drainer unit. The kitchen benefits from a generous stone island which incorporates the induction hob with extractor over along with additional storage. A large recess has been provided for a freestanding American style fridge freezer. Beyond, the utility offers recesses and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. Guests and owners alike are served during the day by a newly installed downstairs shower room complete with a shower cubicle, wash hand basin, chrome towel rail, and WC.
Rising up the staircase with the original decorative balustrading onto a light and airy galleried landing, three large double bedrooms are found, each with ample space for freestanding bedroom furniture. The bedrooms share access to the family bathroom which has been designed and decorated to match the downstairs shower room. A bath, enclosed shower cubicle, wash hand basin set atop a storage unit, chrome heated towel rail, and WC completes this delightful home.
This property offers a neat frontage with car standing for two vehicles and a pathway leading to the front door.
The stunning rear elevation is characterised by the single storey extension fitted with two sets of doors which over views over the garden.
