A stunning 1920s character property, having undergone a complete renovation project, offered with potentially no onward chain, large South facing garden, superior quality throughout.

Description

Hortons are delighted to offer to the market this exceptional 1920s property that has undergone extensive renovation works to create a modern & tasteful family home, that is within close proximity to the town centre & railway station.

"We love the location and being able to walk into town and to the train

station. We love the original period features and that it has a driveway

for 2 cars and a large garden which is unusual for houses of this style

and proximity to the town centre. The sense of community on the

street is an added bonus - all of our neighbours help each other out and

are very supportive. We also love how quiet it is in the garden and feel

like it’s our hidden secret in the town centre"

The house benefits from a very good sized, landscaped South facing garden, and two side-by-side driveway parking spaces - both very rare to come across with properties in this location. Beargarden Road is a highly sought-after address, sitting within an area of Banbury abundant with period features and significance to the town's history. The owners have done a superb job of retaining many original features whilst creating a modern & stylish space.

The entrance is via a covered porchway, with original tile to floor. The driveway in front has an electric vehicle charging point. Upon entry you notice the tall ceilings, consistent throughout the property, and from the entrance hall are stairs rising to the first floor, door to sitting room and an opening to the kitchen.

The sitting room is a very good size, and the engineered wood flooring is laid throughout the ground floor. There is a beautiful tiled fire place, with log burner, a large squared bay window with beautiful stained glass. The windows have undergone insulation works to enhance the efficiency; this coupled with the secondary glazing creates no draft from the windows. Picture rails further compliment the room, and are in keeping with the original style of the property.

The kitchen is an entirely bespoke hardwood kitchen. The quality must be appreciated in person. There is a large curved kitchen peninsula with a gorgeous nero assoluto granite worktop The peninsula has a breakfast bar with stool seating space, sink inset with tap over, storage under counter, and integrated dishwasher and bin space.

There is space for an American fridge freezer, Stoves range cooker with gas hob included with the sale, built-in microwave, and other fitted kitchen storage. The cooker splashback is a beautiful marbled stone, quite the feature as seen in the photos. There is a large, mid-century (we believe) walnut cabinet, that offers further storage space in the kitchen. The under-stair space has been brilliantly reconfigured to offer two pull-out storage units, one for shoes, one for coats - a brilliant use of the space and finished with wood panelling.

There is a doorway to a ground-floor shower room, with WC & wash basin. This space has another built-in storage cupboard, which you'll notice is a theme with this house as the sellers have very much utilized every nook to enhance the space.

The dining room is a light-filled space, with large bespoke cupboards, which are very practical, and the boiler is also within a bespoke cupboard. The wood panelling conceals the boiler cupboard very well. This room continues into the snug area. This is one of my favourite rooms, having a lantern above, and doors onto the garden, this is a very light space, with views across the garden, very peaceful.

The first floor is spacious and well-planned. The bathroom sits at the rear of the house and is a very good size. There is underfloor heating, fired earth bathtub, WC, wash basin & taps, and smart wood effect tiles, the standout being the free-standing bathtub with Dornbracht tap. Within the cupboard are all the fittings required should a new owner wish to install a shower. The current shower space is within the master ensuite.

The master bedroom is a very good size and has lovely views of the garden. There are two alcoves with wardrobes within, and a beautifully restored fireplace, with refurbished original tile. Some of the best-conditioned fireplace tiles I have seen & are original. The owners have very cleverly been able to have a shower ensuite serving this space, accessed via a sliding door.

Bedroom two is again a very good-sized double bedroom with an original fireplace, and bedroom three is a good-sized single bedroom. As seen in the photos currently being used as a home office. From the landing, there is a good-sized storage cupboard, which currently serves as the utility room - a very efficient use of space as seen in the photos.

Something to note is that the neighbouring house of the same layout has converted the loft space, as it is a very good size, and would create another master suite with an ensuite should this be desired.

The garden is recently landscaped and a very good size. It is south-facing, flat, and enjoys a good degree of privacy. There is a large patio space with modern porcelain tiles and a wooden shed. The garden is mostly laid lawn, leading to a brick and tile second patio at the foot of the garden. This is a large area, and is ready for an outbuilding, as the neighbouring house has done so. There is electric already in place to be connected.

There is side access into the garden via a secure gate, beneath the shared passageway with the neighbour.

The current owners are looking to buy on, but have said that they can 'break chain' and become chain-free should this be required for the prospective buyers.
