With existing accommodation extending in all to some 3,165 sq ft (294 sq m) the house is ample in size as it currently stands but there is obvious potential for side and rear extensions as well as a loft conversion if desired (all subject to obtaining the necessary consents). The scope of this potential is such that, if able to be fully exploited, this could become one of Westfield Road's most valuable properties.AccommodationThis most charming character property is entered via a solid oak front door into the impressive reception hall which has original oak panelling to the walls as well as original oak flooring. There are two leaded light windows to the front either side of the front door and there is an under-stairs cloaks cupboard, adjacent to which is the cloakroom WC. Doors radiate off the hall to the three reception rooms and breakfast kitchen.The drawing room has double doors opening from the hall and is a pleasant dual aspect room with leaded light windows to the front and rear and interesting plaster detailing to the ceiling adding character. Leaded glass double doors open into a garden room which is a delightful place to sit and enjoy the view of the large private front garden whilst the sun streams in through the large south facing window. A door off the garden room leads out to the rear garden.The dining room also has double doors opening from the hall, as well as a further door linking it directly to the kitchen. There is a wide leaded light window to the front, oak panelling to the walls, oak strip flooring, a tiled fireplace with stone surround, and decorative plasterwork to the ceiling.The breakfast kitchen is situated to the rear of the house overlooking the garden. There is a fitted corner bench seat in the breakfast area and whilst the kitchen units might be considered dated the kitchen is entirely functional and certainly adequate for use whilst a new buyer makes plans for renovations. A door off the kitchen leads into a cosy morning room which has windows overlooking the garden and a further door providing direct access to the hall. A further door off the kitchen opens into the large covered side area/utility area with various outbuildings.The oak panelled staircase from the reception hall leads up to the landing off which the four existing bedrooms radiate. From the landing a loft access hatch with pull down ladder reveals a particularly large loft area, ideal for storage but ripe for conversion to additional bedroom and bathroom accommodation if required.The master bedroom is a large room with windows to the front and side elevations. There is a walk-in wardrobe as well as a walk-through wardrobe leading to the sizeable en suite bathroom.Bedroom two is also a large double room with windows to the front and side and has a built-in wardrobe as well as a wash basin. Bedrooms three and four whilst smaller rooms both have a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. The bedrooms are served by a good sized house bathroom and separate WC.OutsideTo the front of the house is a sizeable foregarden set behind a high laurel hedge and close boarded fence to Westfield Road. The foregarden is primarily lawned but with planted beds and borders providing additional interest and greenery. The property is entered from Westfield Road through tall brick pillars up a long tarmacadam driveway which opens out to form parking for several cars. Timber double doors open off the drive into a large covered area to the side of the house which in turn leads to a single garage with side-sliding door. The covered side area is an ideal utility and storage area and also has a boiler room housing the gas central heating boiler, and a separate gardener's loo. There is a door from the covered side area leading into the kitchen and a further door to the rear leading out to the garden.The rear garden is an excellent size with a large paved terrace running the full width of the house from which steps lead down to the substantial lawn. The plot is flanked by mature trees and shrubs to give a good degree of screening and privacy as well as a green and pleasant outlook from the house and elevated terrace.We have measured the total area of the plot to be in the order of 0.49 acre (0.2 hectare).General informationTenure: The property is Freehold.
