Park up on the breadth of drive spanning the front, bordered by tidy strips of lawn. Space here for five or six cars, in addition to the single garage, secreted behind its British racing green-painted electronically-opening wooden doors.
Such a private spot. Cross the plum-grey paving, up the trio of red-brick steps and beneath the sympathetically designed rustic-porch, before pushing open the front door.
Welcome home. Light and cheerful, your neutral and airy entrance hall is illuminated via the glass-paned latticework of the traditional front door.
Already, characterful touches reveal this home’s rich heritage: note the solid oak floor, austere picture rails, high ceilings and deep skirting boards; striking calling cards of a bygone era.
Slip off your coat and gloves and hang them in the handy cloakroom, just ahead of you to the right. Space for all the family’s cumbersome winter coats here.
Tucked away, a further bonus; your downstairs washroom complete with a low-level toilet and sink.
From the entrance hall, solid oak doors lead temptingly off. Take the first door to the left to discover fine dining at its best. Beyond the rich oak, a typically grand 1930s dining room awaits. Bountiful bay windows beneath an archway draw your eye, inviting light flow through the room.
Exposed beams dapple the ceiling in a further nod to the history of the home, whilst an open flame fire sits on a lustrous black hearth, creating a cosy ambience. The perfect formal entertaining space, gather the family around for Sunday dinner.
Why not slip next door to your elegant sitting room, and put your feet up after a fantastic feast?
Bright and cheerful throughout the day, light pours in through broad patio doors leading to your glorious garden, supplemented by light from the diamond-paned side window. Cosy and snug in the evenings, once the kids are in bed, hunker down on the sofa in front of the flickering flames of the fire and watch the latest Netflix release.
With your working chimney in place, why not consider a log-burning stove for that rustic effect?
As in each of your downstairs rooms, the charm of the 1930s era pervades in here by means of the traditional picture rail and high skirtings.
Time to see what’s cooking. Follow us through to your contemporary kitchen.
