A sympathetically refurbished three-bedroom Dutch-style home nestled in the heart of Knighton.

Description

Subject to a comprehensive refurbishment, the space makes deft use of a considered Farrow and Ball colour palette and materials across its living areas and three bedrooms. A real sense of space is enjoyed in this home. Characterised by natural light whilst being positioned in the heart of Knighton, this Dutch-style property epitomises a refined, minimalist home.

The ground floor is divided between a living room, dining area, and an open-plan breakfast kitchen. The space has been expertly conceived with a serene palette that frames a pleasant view of the greenery to the rear. Solid Fenix slim-profile matt worktops pair with Parador Trendtime 6 Oak-limed German laminate flooring, while double-glazed French doors draw in a dappled, east-facing light. Configured with entertainment in mind, it boasts a wealth of appliances, including an induction hob with concealed extractor hood, integrated oven, dishwasher, and fridge-freezer. Newly fitted flush casement double glazing was installed throughout in 2023 and allows natural light to take centre stage throughout the entirety of the property. A well-appointed wet room with walk-in shower cubicle serves as a conveniently positioned utility room, housing the washing machine and separate dryer. Tucked away at the front of the downstairs plan, a tastefully decorated snug area features a large double-glazed window with traditional cast-iron style column radiators, which are installed throughout the majority of the property.

Unusual for most homes in the immediate area, the property has three very large double bedrooms and a beautifully decorated three-piece family bathroom with a separate WC, spread across a split-tier landing. To the right-hand side of the first floor, the three bedrooms are positioned. Here, and fitted in January 2024 by the local Clarendon Park group, Mittons, pure wool 3-ply yarn carpet features, providing sufficient space for all necessary furniture. Two of the three bedrooms offer a leafy view of the east-facing rear garden, whilst the largest bedroom overlooks the tree-lined Kingsmead Road. To the left-hand side, a spacious three-piece family bathroom and separate WC complete the accommodation on offer. Given the nature of this home and neighbouring properties, our clients inform us that the loft was fully insulated in 2023 and it seems appropriate to suggest that further extension could be considered, subject to all necessary consents.

Mainly laid to lawn, the glorious east-facing rear garden has been designed with several shady and sunny spots to sit and entertain. It has been thoughtfully planted with beds, borders, and a vegetable patch. Trees around its perimeter enhance its leafy, secluded feel, with a wooden-built shed and greenhouse found at the far end of the plot. To the front, a single garage provides off-road parking with a separate driveway allowing space for at least two vehicles with the added bonus of an Ohme electric car charger fitted.

Bright, airy, and presented immaculately, early viewing is essential to appreciate the quality of design and the convenience the home offers with its extensive range of local amenities.

Vendor comments:
