Standing at the end of this much admired terrace of handsome Victorian homes, No.5 is a wonderful family residence (approx. 223sq.m. / 2,400sq.ft.) which has been sensitively upgraded and extended to provide an excellent balance of generously appointed and light filled accommodation that boasts a truly lovely mix of elegance and comfort, all just a few minutes stroll from the busting village of Glasthule.
Benefiting from many of its original features, gracious proportions complimented by tall ceilings heavily accented with intricate cornicing married with large light bearing windows, give this home instant appeal. A walled front garden leads up to the hall door, beyond which lies an entrance porch with traditional black and red tiled flooring, wood paneled walls and exquisite ceiling detail. Double doors with stained glass paneling and matching fan light lead through to the welcoming and very elegant entrance hall (with guest w.c.), which sets the tone of what to expect throughout. The flow from the graciously appointed, bay windowed formal reception rooms through to the generous, bright and airy open plan living / kitchen / dining, seamlessly ensures the discerning purchasers enjoyment of the best of both old and modern day living. The kitchen has an excellent range of in frame Shaker style wall and floor units and is open through to an extended living / dining room -a large but very cosy and atmospheric heart of the house. On the hall floor return there is a large family bathroom and a double bedroom and on the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, the principle of which spans the entire with of the house and features a beautiful white marble fireplace and large bay window. On the final return there is one further double bedroom and a shower room.
To the front of the house there is a walled garden laid mainly in lawn and bordered by mature hedging and beds stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs. To the rear of the property is a beautiful garden with pedestrian side access - a real haven of seclusion! It is laid in lawn with two patio areas ideal for al fresco dining and for children to play it and is bordered by colourful raised beds. An excellent addition to the house is the granite clad garden room (4.2m x 5.2m approx..) which offers itself as an excellent home work space, a gym, a games room or just extra storage. There is off street parking to the side of the house.
