A sympathetically refurbished four bedroom Victorian palisaded villa situated in the heart of Stoneygate on the doorstep to Allandale Road.


Set back from the main road and with immediate kerb appeal, this four bedroom palisaded villa is the epitome of Victorian architecture, characterised by decorative covings, cast iron feature fireplaces and stain leaded glass. The property is deceiving from the front with an expansive floorplan exceeding 1500 square foot of accommodation with further potential for extension and reconfiguration.

Entry is via a beautifully landscaped walkway with blue slate stone, established borders and shrubbery offering privacy from the main-road. An original timber framed front-door with stained leaded glass inserts opens to a deceptively spacious entrance hall with the most incredible original Victorian tiled flooring, wall panelling, picture rails and covings offers dual access to two reception rooms. To the right hand side, the principle reception room is complete with a large timber framed sash bay-window to the side aspect allowing natural light to take centre stage, flooding the space on offer. A decorative original cast-iron decorative feature fireplace with marbled inserts and a slate hearth is positioned to the centre of the space making an excellent focal point. Hardwood flooring, decorative covings and double height skirting boards pay homage to the era the home was built in. To the left hand side, a spectacular second reception room can be found. Decorative ceiling covings with feature patterned plaster to the ceiling is worth highlighting alongside recently upgraded timber framed sash windows to front aspect, double timber doors with stained glass inserts to side lobby and an original open cast iron fireplace on tiled hearth with coloured tiled inserts complete with timber-framed double doors leading to the North-facing rear garden. This space is nothing short of impressive and is presented in excellent condition throughout. To the rear of the downstairs accommodation, a well appointed breakfast style kitchen complete with modern stylish pendant lighting and three timber framed windows to side aspect and timber doors with stained glass inserts to rear garden. Well configured for modern day living with a separate dining area to the left hand side, the kitchen provides sufficient space for all relevant appliances, an extensive range of fitted timber base and wall kitchen units offering cupboard and drawer storage with a timber work top incorporating a double ceramic sink with drainer unit and chrome mixer tap over, plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher and a gas oven with six burner hob.

To the first floor, a split-tier landing opens to three double bedrooms and a long walk-way to a three piece family bathroom and fourth and final bedroom. The master bedroom is positioned to the front of the plan, boasting fitted wardrobes, triple timber-framed sash windows to the front overlooking Stoughton Road with an original cast-iron feature fireplace. Sufficient space is on offer to fit a super-king-size bedroom and relevant bedroom furniture with newly fitted plush wool carpets. Two further double bedrooms can be found which are both presented in excellent condition retaining a wealth of character and charm. A stylishly appointed three piece family bathroom is positioned to the centre of the first-floor boasting two frosted timber framed sash windows to side aspect, timber flooring and a classic white bathroom suite with low flush WC, oversized square sink on chrome legs and an cast iron bath with chrome mixer tap and mains shower over executed in a bold black and sage-green colour theme. A fourth and final bedroom (configured as an office currently) completes the accommodation on offer homing the Worcester combi-boiler (installed in 2020) and wooden framed sash-windows providing pleasant views onto the extensive rear-garden.

To the rear, a much larger than average, spacious and beautifully maintained North-facing rear garden which is mainly laid-to-lawn with a separate patio area established well with mature trees and raised borders. The space found in the garden could very easily be configured to extend the existing property (subject to necessary consents.) An unusual addition to this fabulous home is the benefit of a garage and off-road parking found to the rear of the property (included in the sale of the property.) This is something that is incredibly rare given the nature and position of the property and is well worth highlighting.

Vendor comments:

" If we could pick up this house and move it to the location we need to move to, then we would! We have been spoilt living in such a spacious, period property with ornate, original features in so many of the rooms. We will particularly miss the kitchen where we have spent many a happy occasion entertaining friends and family over the years "
