A 1922 detached villa, the house has been sensitively renovated and updated to preserve and enhance period details. These include Arts and Crafts fireplaces, handsome built-in cupboards, encaustic tiles in the spacious hall, gorgeous stained glass windows in the porch, and a beautiful oak staircase. The house is filled with light. The elegant sitting room has French windows onto the brick-paved terrace and offers changing views of the garden in all its seasons. A downstairs WC has been cleverly created in part of the space occupied by the under-stairs cupboard.
Upstairs, the house has an attractive and spacious layout. There are four generous bedrooms, each with its own fine aspect and with lovingly restored original features. A large family bathroom gives plenty of options to the modern family.
The owner, a garden writer, has made a charming, south-facing walled garden, in which fruit trees and soft fruit flourish and ornamental vegetable beds take centre stage. Climbing roses, unusual shrubs and herbaceous perennials thrive in mixed borders. A traditional greenhouse gives seedlings and cuttings a head start in early spring and produces in the summer fine crops of tomatoes, peppers, mini cucumbers and aubergines. An original brick shed provides attractive and secure storage space for garden tools and equipment.
