An exemplary six bedroom Victorian villa on the border of highly desirable Stoneygate/Clarendon Park boasting generous period styled accommodation over three storeys, complete with a private and landscaped rear garden.
This delightful Victorian villa has been a cherished family home and is now presented to the market without a chain. Beautifully maintained during its ownership, the property boasts an abundance of original features, perfectly paired with elegant, period-inspired decoration. The quaint, part glazed front door with transom window above opens into the welcoming entrance hall which extends to the rear of the property. A medium stained timber dado rail draws out the warm tones in the original Minton tiled flooring and contrasts the intricately textured blue walls below. Access to a generous one room basement, shadowing the footprint of the living room and hallway, is found off the hall. The dry basement has excellent scope for a home cinema or exercise room as desired and already benefits from electric points and natural light via a large window to the front aspect.
The generous accommodation comprises of a living room, dining room, cloakroom and breakfast kitchen on the ground floor. The large living room is illuminated by its bay window to the front and features coving to the ceiling and a statement fireplace with a decorative hearth and surround. In the dining room to the rear, a part glazed door sits within latticed windows and provides convenient access to the garden along with an abundance of natural light. Again, this good sized room boasts coving to the ceiling and a large fireplace. The extended breakfast kitchen sits to the rear of the property and was fully refurbished a short time ago. Shades of terracotta through the brick laid floor tiling perfectly complement the shaker style wall and base units. A crisp quartz worksurface encompasses a sink and drainer unit with chrome tap over. A large, Rangemaster style cooker is nestled within a bespoke timber unit with a geometric tiled splashback. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge freezer. The dual aspect room enjoys natural light through the day thanks to the windows running along the left hand side and fully glazed doors to the rear leading to the garden.
Rising to the first floor, three double bedrooms are found along with the family bathroom. The master bedroom is positioned to the front, spans the width of the property, and is embellished by coving to the ceiling and a painted picture rail. The four piece bathroom suite has been beautifully designed to be within keeping of this magnificent period home while providing modern luxuries. A freestanding roll top, cast iron clawfoot bath has a handheld shower attachment while the separate chrome shower cubicle offers a rainfall shower with metrobrick tiling. Completing the room is a wash hand basin and porcelain high system WC.
The recently redecorated second floor boasts two further double bedrooms and a sixth bedroom, ideal as a home office. Each double bedroom is adorned by its original fireplace with latticed windows providing natural light. The floor is completed by an additional shower room with WC and wash hand basin.
This delightful home is set within a row of similar villas and boasts an attractive frontage with a selection of neat shrubbery matching the greenery provided by the climbing plants on the façade. Parking is available on Springfield Road and surrounding roads.
The generous rear garden has been landscaped and well maintained to provide a serene space for relaxing and entertaining. A large block paved patio extends directly outside the property while a slabbed patio and pathway has been laid extending from the dining room. The side garden is planted with many plants and shrubs and enters the main garden through a metal archway decorated with a rose plant. The remainder of the garden is given over to a manicured lawn with its borders of mature trees, plants, and shrubs providing high privacy from neighbouring properties. A secure gate to the rear leads out into the shared access pathway.
