Situated on what is considered to be one of the most popular tree-lined roads in Queens Park, this is a charming and substantial late-Victorian terraced house with a deep front garden with established tropical planting providing privacy. This property is an ideal family home and enjoys a larger than average rear garden for the area.
At the front of the property is the spacious open-plan lounge, which floods with light from its large box bay windows and the opening from the kitchen. This room is filled with period charm with a working wood feature fireplace and also boasts underfloor heating below the bamboo flooring. Well-built alcove shelving adds interest and storage in this generous room which is ideal for both relaxing and entertaining guests.
The substantial kitchen diner is situated at the back of the property, extended into the side return and out into the garden two large skylights ensure plenty of light, as do the bi-fold doors that lead to the landscaped garden. Matte white cabinets run down one side of the kitchen, containing two integrated ovens and dishwasher, and a bright orange splashback provides a pop of colour against the grey rubber floor. There is plenty of walnut worktop space for food preparation and ample storage in cupboards, a pull-out larder and drawers. The island, with five-burner hob, is a fantastic focal point and place for friends and family to gather. A utility cupboard cleverly conceals washing machine and tumble drier.
Neatly tucked away under the white-painted stairs that rise to the first floor is a cloakroom with wash hand basin. In the hallway, the understairs cupboard and wall of hooks, on MiniModerns pegboard-effect wallpaper, are perfect for storing bikes, scooters and sports equipment.
The first-floor landing is wide and airy with high ceilings. Off the landing you will find three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom spans the width of the house an ornate fireplace with original built-in wardrobes either side, and a balcony lend period charm while Bold & Noble wallpaper adds a contemporary twist. The family bathroom on this level is modern with white brick tiles, walnut flooring, a large bath and rain shower with a handy recess for toiletries, finished off with a modern sink and WC. The second and third bedrooms have recently had new sash windows installed and the second also has a feature fireplace and original alcove wardrobe.
Continuing up to the second floor you will find another double bedroom with two Velux windows. This light-filled room offers plenty of space for bedroom and/or office furniture and benefits from generous eaves storage and an en-suite shower room with WC and basin.
Outside the kitchen doors and up the steps is a low- maintenance, slate-tiled entertaining area surrounded by fruit trees and exotic plants. Through a gate is a further paved area that also extends to the left behind several neighbours gardens this currently has raised beds creating an ideal area to grow vegetables and soft fruit. At the end of the twitten (path) another gate offers street access for bikes etc.
The road is popular for its proximity to the attractive Queens Park, with its pond, tennis courts and childrens playground, and the Ofsted-outstanding St. Lukes Primary School, which is just around the corner. A regular bus service takes you into town, to the station or KempTown village. The area is popular for commuters travelling to London as the mainline train station is about 15 minutes walk, as are the beach and fashionable North Laine area. There are many excellent local pubs and cafes, plus a GP, post office, chemist, corner shop and swimming pool within a few minutes walk.
