Along the prestigious Albert Road West, home to a variety of individual and unique homes, make your way to Number 61.
Set behind a neat red brick wall, an immaculate golden gravelled driveway provides parking for at least five cars, with a large garage tucked back at the end of the driveway.
Ahead, the peaked white gable of this period home draws attention to its broad, window embellished frontage. This is a home full of character, spacious and warm; a home in which your family can grow.
Come inside, to discover more…
Step inside, where the stained-glass windows of the porch cascade light down onto the traditional black and white tiling of the spacious entrance hall.
Freshen up in the guest WC to the right, also serving as a convenient utility space, before taking the door, fitted with stained-glass glazing, ahead and to the left of the entrance hall, into the lounge.
Plush grey carpet is comforting underfoot, complemented by the feature wallpaper and dusky pink walls.
Sunshine catches the purple and blue tones in the original stained-glass leaded lights of the bay window to the front, filling the room with light and warmth. Within a ceiling rose, a feature pendant light also suffuses the room in ambient illumination, with hidden downlighting to the gas fireplace set within a stone surround.
Snuggle up on the sofa for winter evening movie marathons. Plenty of space in here for a large Christmas tree too…
Contemporary styling combines with classic features in the sitting room to the rear. Currently utilised as a games room, on-trend grey coats the lower half of the walls, cooling to off-white above the picture rail. Grandly sized, with a light herringbone pattern wood-effect floor, light streams through the bountiful box bay window to the rear, where French doors open out onto the sunny south facing garden.
Traditional candelabra sconce lighting and pendant to the ceiling is evocative of the home’s period glamour, in addition to the high skirtings, whilst the fireplace retains a more contemporary feel.
Turning left as you exit the sitting room, open the traditional 1930s door with its stained-glass window to discover the contemporary kitchen-diner-snug.
Recline on the large sofa in the snug section of this room where inky navy tones to the walls are counterbalanced with a pink floral theme to the feature wall.
Crisp white and powder blue denote the subtle change of scene, in the kitchen to the left, a scene of contemporary culinary finesse, with tall white vertical radiators, ceiling lanterns and spotlighting.
So much space for storage, wide white units accommodate all your utensils and essentials, with a full height fridge and freezer, double oven and drinks fridge featuring amidst the array of built-in appliances.
Set within the sleek black central island breakfast bar is a gas hob, beneath a visually striking designer extractor hood.
In the summertime, open the French doors and allow the indoors to merge with the peaceful and private garden beyond. Perfect for entertaining family and friends.
When slumber calls, take the traditional-style carpeted stairs up to the first of two floors of sleeping accommodation, passing by the stunning feature stained-glass window on the turn, which showers light throughout the entrance hall below and landing above. Adding to the illumination is a cascading droplet pendant light.
Emerging on the landing, turn left to discover bedroom three, a bright bedroom located to the front of the house.
Light streams in through the stained glass, with curtains and blinds fitted to the window to allow you full control of the brightness. Ample space for all your clothes, with a wall of fitted mirrored wardrobes.
To the rear, discover the spacious and peaceful second bedroom, with leafy views out over the treelined garden. Built-in storage provides plenty of space for coats, school uniforms and toys, with cosy carpet underfoot. There is even an ensuite with shower, wash basin and WC.
Next door, a third, spacious double bedroom, carpeted and inviting, also shares private views out over the rear garden.
Freshen up in the stylish wet-room style shower room, with textured stone-effect walls, mosaic tiling to the walk-in shower, and recessed alcoves for shampoos and shower gels set in a contrasting tone. A large, rainfall shower head comes with handheld attachment. There is also vanity unit storage beneath the wide wash basin and a WC. Next door there is an additional WC.
Decorated in pale grey with views out over the front, discover the fourth bedroom on this level (a fifth master bedroom awaits above on the penthouse level). Why not consider using this bedroom as a work from home office or as a media room for the youngsters?
Escape to penthouse level privacy on the third floor, located at the top of the grey carpeted staircase.
Emerge into a bright and bountiful bedroom, carpeted and peaceful, where light streams in through the Velux windows. Geometrical wallpaper in shimmering silver tones creates a feature wall behind the double bed, with so much storage space available in the wardrobes.
Sneak a peek at the refreshing ensuite, tiled in the same textured bronze tones as the family shower room downstairs. There is storage beneath the wash basin and a walk-in shower in addition to a WC.
Returning downstairs, step out of the family room or sitting room-games room onto the sun trap patio, from where steps lead down to a lower patio which skirts the edge of the lush lawn; perfect for games of football.
In summer the trees burst into leaf, providing screening. Securely fenced, (the home is also fitted with CCTV) this is a safe and private garden for children and pets, with access into the garage and brick-built store.
