The Manse

Magnificent traditional sandstone Victorian detached villa circa 1900. The fully enclosed, landscaped and stocked gardens are notable for their overall size and remarkable privacy. The gardens incorporate lawns, stocked borders, beds and a large sandstone paved patio. Attention is also drawn to the charming seating area with gazebo and pond. A long driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles and access to a substantial masonry double sized detached garage under slate roof with electric doors. Two further timber outbuildings, situated to the rear of the garage, provide storage and workshop facilities.

The subjects display a wealth of intact character period features including ornate plasterwork cornice and original woodwork including fine staircase, timber flooring, panelled doors and architraves. Sensitively and sympathetically modernised, the property combines period charm with all the conveniences demanded by modern day living.

An outer entrance hall gives way to the wonderful reception hallway with impressive stair newel posts, timber flooring and original wall-mounted bell board. Particular attention is drawn to the elegant drawing room and formal dining room, both of which have focal point fireplaces and bay windows. Further public rooms include a delightful garden room with French doors to the rear patio, and breakfast/morning room situated off the kitchen. The superb kitchen was refitted by Kitchens International complete with a focal point Aga range cooker, granite worktops and further integrated appliances. A rear hallway allows access to a large utility/boot room, stylish downstairs WC and excellent storage. The ground floor is completed by a versatile double bedroom, currently utilised as a large study.

Access to the upper level is via the original staircase to the half landing which has two exceptional stained glass cathedral style windows. The family bathroom has a cast iron bath and rainforest mains shower situated off the half landing. There are three double sized bedrooms situated off the upper landing, two of which have en suite shower rooms. The master bedroom has both front and gable windows offering excellent natural light. The master en suite bathroom is a superb apartment with central cast iron ball and claw foot roll-top bath, quadrant shower, twin wash-hand basins, chrome radiator and tiled flooring. The master en suite bathroom was originally a bedroom and could be de-converted for use as a further double bedroom, if required. The property has gas fired central heating. Viewing alone will confirm the overall size and quality of this exceptional residence. EER Rating : Band E.
