Set back from a wide tree-lined road in a coveted conservation area, behind the distinctive yellow brick facade of this 1890s residence, a hugely easy flowing layout creates a great sense of space whilst its exceptional presentation retains an abundance of charm and character.
Beneath the sensational gold architraves and patterns of the high ceiling, the extensive proportions of the living/dining room offer a truly wonderful place to relax and entertain. Beautifully lit by a duo of tall sash windows looking out over the greenery of the garden, a focal point working fireplace with its opulent mantelpiece is an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Dado and picture rails wrap-around the room, while the rich tones of an engineered wood floor that run throughout the majority of this outstanding home provide the perfect backdrop to the bespoke cabinets that discreetly house a TV and radiators.
Adding to the sociable feel, the room opens onto the adjoining kitchen where a wealth of sleek full height cabinets house an array of integrated appliances that provide every convenience, and the lime green countertop of an island/breakfast bar adds a vibrant splash of colour.
With its sultry dark carpets, Farrow & Ball walls and marble fireplace, the large principal bedroom has a luxurious feel. Elegant period cornicing and window panels supply a crisp white contrast, and wide sash bay windows allow a superb amount of natural light to tumble in, while the clean lines of fitted wardrobes produce ample storage without encroaching on the aesthetics of the room. A walk-in dressing room echoes the superior design scheme and leads the way to an en suite wet room with a rainfall shower and jet black metro tiles. The Victorian charm and character continues across the hallway in the equally-well proportioned second double bedroom where further sash bay windows look out onto the tree-lined road and the pretty architraves enhance the height of the ceiling. Perfectly versatile as either family or guest accommodation, the generous proportions benefit from an en suite bathroom with an eye-catching roll-top bath, marble tiled floor and feature blossom patterns.
Encompassed by statuesque trees and shrubs that create colour and interest throughout the seasons and a picture perfect outlook for the apartment, the private walled garden is an immensely idyllic and tranquil place to relax and unwind. The large established lawn is a fantastic place to relax in the sun, enjoy outdoor meals and for children to play. At the front of the villa, two allocated spaces provide private off-road parking.
"I'd previously seen this apartment listed online a year before and loved it, so when it became it available again and we had a chance to actually go and see it, we just walked in and bought it. It's such a wonderful place, it just amazes you and you get that instant feeling of 'this is the one'. The garden is absolutely beautiful too and having two parking spaces means you don't have to search for one when you come home from work. We love that the location is close enough to the sea and absolutely perfect for the cafes and restaurants, and only a 5 minute walk to the station. We will genuinely miss the neighbours and everything about living here. We love this place."
