Open day chance to view a light-filled family home
LUCY BOON found a wonderful family home in the heart of our town. Fancy seeing it
LUCY BOON found a wonderful family home in the heart of our town. Fancy seeing it for yourself? There’s an open day tomorrow (Saturday) from noon to 1pm, so you can just turn up and see for yourself...
THE quaint road of Greys Hill, which runs parallel with the busier Greys Road, is known for its pretty Victorian terraced houses and its close proximity to local primary schools (Sacred Heart, Trinity C of E and St Mary’s).
The two-bedroom workman’s cottages come on the market more frequently than the less abundant four-bedroom villas, of which this is one.
This is a pretty, characterful house that’s been well thought out with a cosy fireplace and sliding doors to the garden.
The only drawback is having to park on the road outside, but then again, you’re in the town centre here, so walking will be your main mode of transport anyway.
The house has 131.8 sq m / 1,418 sq ft of internal space, plus a lovely sized south-facing garden of 9.4 sq m/101 sq ft, which has a “green outlook” over trees and comes with a self-contained office at the bottom.
If Standard Property got her hands on it, she would steal half of the back terrace to increase the size of the kitchen-conservatory (currently of the galley style) and create a kitchen-diner with tri-fold doors that would bring the outside in and add a wow factor.
Something that you already get with the master bedroom’s lovely garden-view balcony.
The vendors told Standard Property: “We were very lucky to find this beautiful period property — in fact we wanted it so much it took us nine months to persuade the previous owners to sell it to us. We have loved always being able to park nearby, even though we are so close to town.
“After we added the large light-filled master bedroom and conservatory a few years ago we have hugely benefited from the garden and the feeling that you’re in the middle of a tranquil woodland.”
