A meticulously decorated two bedroom Victorian house situated in the popular suburb of Clarendon Park.

Description

Positioned on a quiet residential road in the heart of Clarendon Park neighbouring Welford Road, this two bedroom Victorian home has undergone a sympathetic programme of refurbishment whilst retaining a wealth of character and charm, characterised by cast iron feature fireplaces and a neutral colour palette throughout. The property is well configured to accommodate modern day living and serves as an exciting opportunity for any first time buyer looking to get onto the property ladder, an excellent addition to a buy to let portfolio or alternatively a comfortable family home.

Traditional with it's Victorian layout but utilising a clever extension to the rear, the downstairs space is much larger than average. Entry is through to the first reception room. Bright and airy, the space is beautifully presented, boasting original solid wood flooring, double glazed sash windows to the front aspect and an exposed chimney breast. To the centre of the plan, a well appointed second reception room offers an open aspect to the extended fitted kitchen complete with newly fitted wooden flooring and double glazed windows to the side aspect with further storage found under the stairs. To the rear, a recently refurbished, newly fitted kitchen is well configured and includes a four ring gas cylinder hob with concealed extractor hood, a vast array of newly fitted integrated appliances to include an oven, dishwasher and space for the washing machine/dryer and fridge-freezer. Double-glazed windows are positioned to the side aspect offering pleasant views onto the extensive West-facing garden alongside uPVC doors providing access to the rear.

Ascend the stairs to find two double bedrooms and a stylishly appointed, meticulously decorated three piece family bathroom. To the front of the first floor, a large double bedroom is complete with an original cast-iron feature fireplace with a white wood surround to the centre, making a stunning focal point, with solid wood flooring and double-glazed sash windows to the front elevation. A second double bedroom is complete with newly fitted plush wool carpets, another cast iron feature fireplace to the centre alongside double glazed windows to the side aspect overlooking the rear garden with access to the family bathroom. A refurbished three piece family bathroom completes the accommodation on offer. The property is gas central heated complete with a Worcester combi boiler fitted in 2018 and benefits from upgrades to the electrics to include a new fuse box/consumer unit.

To the rear, a rare offering with an extensive West facing garden, much larger than average which is mainly laid-to-lawn edged with side boarders filled with established shrubbery and a block paved terrace. One original outbuilding offers further potential for extension work if applicable (and subject to all necessary consents) whilst to the front, a low maintenance hedged forecourt garden can be found offering privacy from the road. Readily available on-street parking can be found directly outside the property.

Vendor comments:

" This is a beautiful house with a homely feel in the Clarendon Park area, a stones throw away from Queen's Road with great local amenities but also walking distance to the train station/city centre. We love the original features, including the fireplaces (with blocked chimneys) in the top two rooms but have modernised the property throughout to include a new kitchen. The larger than average garden and outdoor space is rare to find in the area. We have lovely neighbours and we feel this is the perfect house for a young couple or first time buyer. "
