The redbrick property has in the intervening years been upgraded by its previous owners. Built in the early 1900s and presenting rooms of gracious proportions, light filled interiors and extending to approx.162.4 sq m / 1748 sq feet, No.64 boasts a wealth of original features including majestic fireplaces, decorative coving, high ceilings, beautiful centre rose, and elegant staircase, this home will prove popular with those who have an eye for the finer things in life.
On arrival, you are pleasantly greeted by a very handsome façade. A large paved and lawned garden with original iron mongered gate and railings invite you to the warm and inviting bright red door with brass detailing and tiled porch. It’s hard to ignore the imposing red brick, with decorative eaves and limestone sills and gives a hint to what awaits you inside.
Behind the elegant facade of this stunning well-proportioned and versatile home, are an array of living spaces that are bathed in natural light, that truly ensure a warm and welcoming atmosphere is felt throughout. One will immediately note the impressive high ceilings, fan light above the door and wood flooring that invite you into the first of two impressive reception rooms. To the left, you will find an elegant drawing room with a wonderful large window, classic Victorian cornicing, centre rose, carpet flooring and a large marble fireplace that dominates your attention.
Next to this room is the formal spacious dining room with a warm inviting original fireplace and ceiling cornicing with centre rose which overlooks the beautifully manicured rear garden, a wonderful space to entertain guests and gather with family and friends.
To the rear of the property is the family room, currently used as the home office cum recreational room. The kitchen is to the rear and although in need of modernising, it will allow the lucky new owners to put their own stamp on a fantastic space and create something special. Completing the downstairs accommodation is the separate utility room and a W.C.
If you're worried about room for the kids to play, there is no need! Although the property is situated close to the city, you have a fantastic private rear garden with ample space for the little ones to safely play in and is complimented by a mature richly stocked and planted garden with rear lane access for off street parking.
Back inside, and winding our way up the sweeping staircase, we find the first-floor return. On this level there is the family bathroom, featuring bath, electric shower, hand basin and WC. There is also a double bedroom, the first of three spacious rooms, however the attic in this property was floored and built to create a large storage space and is currently being used as a fourth bedroom. There are only five properties of this type built in the area with this wonderful additional room, should you need the extra space.
Making our way to the first floor, it's easy to become impressed with the double height ceilings that dominate the space with an abundance of light. On the first floor are two exceptional double bedrooms. The room to the rear is a large double, with original cast iron fireplace, built-in wardrobes, hardwood flooring and cornicing.
Spanning the full length of the front of the property is the impressive master bedroom. The beautiful dual windows command your attention and built in wardrobes and cast iron fireplace complete the space and give you old world character and charm in abundance.
