LeGrys Lettings is delighted to bring to the market this simply stunning, three double bedroom, early Victorian family home in Southborough Village directly opposite the well regarded Pennington Park and walking distance to the local shops. The property has seen an overhaul of refurbishment (Inside & Out) in recent years, with the end result providing modern family living while also incorporating endless period features which have been retained from its build in the early Victorian era . These cottages don’t often become available so viewings are highly recommended.
The ground floor comprises of two reception rooms and kitchen which can be found at the rear of the property. The spacious living room enjoys wide-board stripped timber flooring, as does the rest of the property. An open fireplace has the option for a log burning stove and other features include original cupboards to either side of the fireplace.
The dining room again provides plenty of space and currently can entertain up to six people. The dining room opens through to the kitchen and also provides direct access to the cellar. Adjacent to the fireplace is another original cupboard. The fireplace has the option to be put to working use.
The bespoke 'Plain-English' kitchen benefits from a high sloping ceiling, and has been fitted with a generous amount of solid timber iroko worktops, along with plenty of floor level storage. Finishing the kitchen is a butler sink, fitted washing machine along with lots of wall mounted shelving. The kitchen provides access to the rear garden and studio.
The exposed timber staircase leads you to the first floor, where you will find the master bedroom along with the family bathroom. The spacious master bedroom sits at the front of the property and looks towards Pennington Park. Again the master bedroom offers painted, original timber floorboards and timber sash windows.
At the rear of the first floor is the family bathroom, which has been finished to a high, admirable standard. Occupying the middle of the room is the attractive Fired Earth composite stone free-standing bathtub, which, without a doubt, is the focal point of the room. The bathroom also houses the modern combination Worcester boiler along with WC and wash-basin, and also boasts a great feature of a walk in dressing room. Like the master, the bathroom has painted timber floorboards and a timber sash window.
Stairs to the second floor take you to the second and third bedrooms, again both of these being doubles. The second bedroom is located at the back of the property and has the benefit of a large fitted wardrobe. In keeping with the rest of the property, the current owner has fitted timber framed, double glazed windows.
The third bedroom is a very similar in size, and like the second bedroom has also been fitted with spot-lights to the ceiling.
The South-Facing garden has been laid with gravel making a great spot for enjoying the sun throughout the day. In the garden is a spacious studio which is a conversion from an original Victorian build. The studio has a variety of uses (Office/Playroom//Store) and has been insulated and includes new double glazed windows and a Velux window to maximise light. Features in the studio include reclaimed timber doors, stripped timber floor boards, shelving and a newly fitted slate roof. Behind the Studio is the existing outside WC, which is currently being used as outside storage.
