A quite unique detached eco home set in approximately half an acre of gardens and being tucked away in this ever sought after location of the city, on what was the Tivoli Pleasure Gardens, which closed in 1888.. The property is set back from the road and is approached via private drive with all the living accommodation set over the first and second floors, allowing you to enjoy absolutely stunning and fabulous southerly views across the city.
The current owners first moved into this property 15 years ago and have been renovating different aspects over this time. Recently they have insulated the external elements of the building, the walls and ground floor, with a particular motivation being hoping to reduce energy bills. The front wall has been externally insulated and then re-clad with thermo wood pine timber cladding to help aid with continued lower maintenance. Other walls throughout the home have also been insulated with the internal walls between the garage and lower hall and the cavity walled sides and rear of the house having been filled. Solar pv panels have been installed with micro inverter power optimisers, which have generated 1.2MWh in the last three months. The windows have also been upgraded from single glazing to ‘A’ rated double glazing which are locally manufactured using Accoya wood, sustainably grown soft wood that has been pressure treated with vinegar to make it longer lasting and more durable.
The home stands on the hills above Preston Park which allows you to enjoy some of the best views in the city and with Preston Park railway station being very close by this area is extremely popular with families and commuters alike.
The property itself is arranged over three floors with the very spacious reception hallway on the ground floor, with a good deal of storage, and leading to the integral double garage which in turn has a store room to the rear.
Stairs lead to the first floor which is the main reception space of the home which comprises separate living/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom, there is also a fabulous terrace which is accessed via the living/dining room and is the whole width of the house offering extensive far reaching city and sea views.
On the second floor there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom, a particular feature is the master bedroom suite which includes built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom with a private south facing balcony again with far reaching city and sea views.
Outside there are gardens on all four sides, set in approximately half an acre, which surround the house. The garden itself is very mature and containing a number of fruit trees, bushes and sub tropical plants. There is ample off road private parking to the front leading to the double garage.
This is an extremely unique home and quite possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity, an internal viewing is highly recommended.
