About the property
STUNNING DOUBLE FRONTED HERBERT COLLINS HOUSE WITH THREE RECEPTION ROOMS, TWO BATHROOMS, DETACHED OUTBUILDING AND AN UNUSUALLY LARGE PLOT.
This is an exceptional example of a classic double fronted Herbert Collins house, which has been extended and improved over recent years to offer spacious, modern accommodation, whilst retaining many of the period features. One of the stand out features of this particular house is the plot, which is much larger than most, occupying a sunny aspect whilst being incredibly private. Unusually, the house offers three reception rooms, two bathrooms and a detached outbuilding, making the property incredibly versatile.
Upon approaching the property, wooden gates lead through to the shingled driveway, with space for two cars. A hedge surrounds the front garden, with double wooden doors leading to the side and then rear of the house. The rest of the front garden is laid to lawn, with mature wisteria adding to the charm and character of the house. Leading through the front door, the central hallway is laid with original pine floorboards, which continues into two of the reception rooms. The family room is an attractive space, with a lovely bay window and reclaimed Victorian decorative fireplace. The sitting room is also located at the front of the house and is a large space, with a Victorian tiled Fireplace with Welsh slate base, and leads through to the dining room, forming part of the extension. This room is laid with oak floorboards and double doors lead to the raised patio overlooking the rear garden. From this room is the rear hall that allows access onto the fully tiled modern shower room, a door to the back garden, and access onto the kitchen/ breakfast room. The kitchen/ breakfast room is an impressive space, with a range of integrated appliances, solid wooden work tops and enough space for a breakfast table. Other benefits include a larder, built in double oven, induction hob and several other integrated appliances.
To the first floor of the property, all three bedrooms are generous in size, with ample built in wardrobes with cupboards over to all bedrooms. Another striking feature is the bathroom, which is fully tiled with a standalone shower, roll-top bath and two large windows allowing plenty of natural light. The loft is fully boarded with generous insulation and has been re-lined by the current owners.
Externally, the large garden is sure to impress. A raised patio leads directly off the back of the house to the main patio area which utilises the vast space to the side of the house, capturing sun from morning to evening. The detached garage/ outbuilding is highly equipped, with a separate fuse box, high amperage and wall insulation. This space also benefits loft storage and would lend itself to so many uses. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn, with a small Wendy house on hard standing to one corner.
Situated in this extremely convenient location, transport links are fantastic, with Swaythling Train Station nearby, along with excellent motorway links and The Swaythling Lawn Tennis Club a short walk away.
