A beautifully refurbished three/four bedroom semi-detached house situated in the ever-so popular suburb of Clarendon Park.

Description

A striking 1930s house, completely remodelled and sympathetically refurbished. This three/four bedroom home is a celebration of natural light and interaction with outdoor space. Spread across three floors following a clever loft conversion, the home is complete with an established, mature south-facing rear garden that includes a large willow tree, orange blossom, and two cherry trees. Immaculately renovated over the years to include newly fitted double-glazed windows on the first floor, major works to the front roof, new flooring, and a complete re-landscape of the garden, the property combines contemporary interventions with its 1930s charm.

With immediate kerb appeal, featuring a paved driveway and off-road parking for at least two vehicles, entry is through a wide hallway that boasts Victorian black and white chequered tiling, providing dual access to two reception rooms and the fitted kitchen at the rear. At the front of the plan is a beautifully presented focal reception room. A large double-glazed window allows natural light to take centre stage and floods the space, complementing the stripped wooden flooring. A second reception room is positioned in the centre of the ground floor, featuring the same stripped wooden flooring as the first, with an original cast-iron feature fireplace serving as an excellent focal point. French doors frame pleasant leafy views over the extensive south-facing rear garden. The kitchen occupies the rear of the plan and has double-glazed windows framing views of the garden, space for all relevant appliances, and uPVC doors leading to the side passage. Given the size of the rear garden, potential for a kitchen extension seems feasible, but this would be subject to all necessary consents and has not been explored by the current owners.

On the first floor are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, a three-piece family bathroom, and an open space configured as a music corner with double-glazed windows overlooking the frontage. Both bedrooms provide sufficient space for all necessary furniture and include two cast-iron feature fireplaces. A stylishly appointed three-piece family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. Cleverly configured with immense attention to detail, a loft conversion was conducted in 2015-2016 to create a third and final double bedroom. Here, Velux skylights enhance natural light, complementing the modern laminate flooring and a Juliet balcony overlooking the extensive plot. A modern and stylishly appointed three-piece en-suite completes the accommodation on offer.

Outside, established shrubbery surrounds the garden, adding to the quiet feel that the house’s location affords. Mainly laid to lawn with a separate decked paving area, the garden is planted with a variety of mature trees, including a large willow, two cherry trees, orange blossom, crab apple, and a beautiful selection of peonies. At the far end of the plot, a well-appointed garden studio is complete with electricity mains and is excellently suited for home working. All in all, a fabulous home in a thriving suburb. Early viewing is truly essential to appreciate the overall finish the home has to offer.

Vendor comments:

“ This 1930s semi-detached property lies in a quiet part of Clarendon Park/Knighton and is very close to the amenities on Queens Road and good schools. The house is well proportioned and gets a lot of natural light. We particularly enjoy the large loft as well as the mature and deep South-facing garden. “
