A superbly presented and character rich, period family home ideally located on a sought after tree-lined road just 0.2 miles from Northwood Underground station and town centre. The house provides a fantastic mix of period charm, and modern, spacious and sensibly laid out accommodation, arranged over three floors.
The property is accessed via a storm porch which in turn leads to a spacious entrance hall maximising natural light. The property offers high ceilings, picture rails and a number of original period features. The sitting room is situated to the front of the property and has a large bay window complete with made to measure plantation shutters. It has a cast iron fireplace with ornate tiled and wooden surround. The entrance hall also provides access to a ground floor WC, a separate study or TV room and the kitchen/family room. The bright and spacious kitchen/family room is a real feature of the property. It has been completely redesigned and remodelled by the current vendors to accommodate modern family living. This room boasts bifold doors across the rear providing access to the garden, two large skylights and three sash windows to the side. The kitchen is designed in an attractive shaker style with contrasting wall and base units to the wooden work surface. It also contains a stunning island unit with granite work surface that separates the dining and cooking area. The ground floor is complete with a useful utility room separated from the kitchen/diner via a stable door; this houses the boiler and provides side access to the garden.
To the first floor are three bedrooms and the two bath/shower rooms. The principle bedroom is spacious with extensive built in wardrobes. Bedroom two and three are also both of good size with bedroom two having the benefit of built in wardrobes and bedroom three also having built in shelving and cupboard unit. The shower room and family bathroom are contemporary, both with large windows and floor to ceiling tiles. The family bathroom has a large shower unit separate to the bathtub.
To the second floor, bedroom four and bedroom five are also great sized double rooms, both with plenty of storage within the eaves.
To the front, the property is approached by a shingled carriage driveway that provides off street parking for several cars and access to the garage. The garage is a great size, in excess of 17ft in length. It adjoins a room currently used for storage but which could very easily be remodelled to provide a home office or gym space.
To the rear is the beautiful, landscaped garden with a South-Westerly facing aspect. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with raised flowerbeds housing a variety of mature plants, fruit trees and shrubs.
