*GUIDE PRICE £575,000 TO £595,000* Set back from the road behind a well maintained front garden and attractive sandstone wall this imposing three double bedroom period home oozes character and charm from the very offset. Speldhurst Road is ideally situated for local schools and the high street. For commuters the nearest mainline train station is within walking distance and offers frequent London city links within the hour.
A centrally positioned set of steps with lawns to either side lead you to the covered entrance with space to kick off muddy boots.
Via a part glazed front door you are welcomed into a grand entrance hall with doors to both reception rooms where the gorgeous solid wood flooring continues.
Original double doors open into the living room where an attractive working fireplace adds warmth and character to this already pleasant room. Fitted cupboards/shelves to each side of the chimney breast offer useful storage with a large UPVC sash window with plantation shutters drawing in plenty of natural light.
The second reception room is of similar proportion to the living room and is used as a dining room. Another period fireplace adds to the charm whilst there is storage to the side of the chimney breast and another sash UPVC window with fitted plantation shutters.
Continuing down the hallway you find handy fitted storage and side door to the lower patio.
At the rear of the ground floor is the handmade kitchen with its underfloor heating adding warmth to the solid stone tiles. The kitchen itself provides storage from its many solid wood cabinets. Painted in an olive green the cabinets contrast beautifully against the solid granite work surfaces. Includes with the kitchen is a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and range oven with five-ring gas hob and warming plate. A window at the rear looks over the garden with butler sink beneath.
Completing the ground floor is the recently updated cloakroom with Savoy fittings, crisp white subway style tiles and frosted window.
The original staircase with carpet runners leads you to the first floor where the three bedrooms and family bathroom are all accessed from the landing.
All three double bedrooms are of similar, good sizes. The master bedroom sits at the back with stripped wood flooring, period fireplace, fitted wardrobe and space for further furniture. Both other bedrooms also enjoy beautiful period fireplaces, stripped floors and fitted storage.
The family bathroom has seen a full re-fit in recent years with quality ‘Bensham’ fittings and includes a WC, wash basin, bath (with shower over) and traditional heated towel rail. The bathroom is finished with marble effect flooring and white subway style tiles to the walls.
Outside the low maintenance gardens offer both recreational and entertaining areas. Direct from the side door on the ground floor is a lower patio where side access leads you to the front of the house and stairs lead you to the raised patio. The raised patio is bordered with railway sleeper flower beds. Adjacent sits the area of lawn with lots of tall greenery adding privacy and there is also a useful shed for storage.
