Tucked back off ever-popular Church Road, Pine House sits pretty on its spacious corner plot beyond a screen of neat privet hedging.
Herringbone paving harmonises with the red brick façade of Number 44, a home where period features preside alongside contemporary twists and conveniences. Step inside to discover more…
From the attractively tiled porch, continue through beneath the coloured transom window into the entrance hallway, where the ornate original plasterwork frames the staircase ahead.
Authentic stained-glass draws a kaleidoscope of colour through the door to the right, which opens to reveal a light, bright sitting room.
Bold tones create a warm and inviting feel in the sitting room. Carpeted in soft grey, the bay window draws light through this spacious and sumptuous room. Elegant cornicing decorates the ceiling, within which a chandelier is suspended. Snuggle up on the sofa with family and watch a movie. In wintertime turn on the gas fire for a cosy atmosphere.
Next door to the sitting room French Grey adds its soothing green-grey tones to the walls and feature ceiling, bringing a 19th century relaxation to this reception room. Light permeates the room through tall, wide windows to two sides. Traditional cornicing and picture rails are distinguished in white, counterbalanced by plush grey carpet and modern gas fire set within a wooden surround. Where better to relax and unwind on weekday evenings and weekend mornings; settle down on the sofa with the Sunday paper. Bliss.
Dine in the contemporary kitchen, which awaits at the end of the entrance hall. Bright spotlighting enhances the crisp white walls. Cupboard units and drawers offer an array of storage, whilst the central island provides extra preparation space in addition to storage. Dine overlooking the garden, where two enormous sash windows draw so much light through. Integrated appliances include a gas hob, set within a charcoal tiled recess and a double oven. Fitted pine cupboards stretch up to the ceiling adding warmth and providing even more storage space.
Peep through to the utility room with plenty more storage, a sink and space for an American style fridge-freezer. Slip out to the garden through the rear door to soak up the sunshine.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the white, spindled staircase up, opening the door to bedroom two directly ahead. French grey, mustard and white combine for the cosiest of moods. Carpeted underfoot, a double bed is set to the feature wall, with a wall-mounted television opposite. Storage is in ample supply, in the stylish, floor to ceiling fitted pine wardrobes.
Refresh and revive in the family bathroom next door, sleekly tiled in marble-effect to the walls. Built-in storage surrounds the WC and wash basin, whilst a P-shaped bath with fitted overhead shower is conveniently located across from where towels warm on the heated chrome rail.
Peep through to bedrooms three and four, light-filled rooms suitable perhaps as a work from home office or nursery, before making your way to the front of the home, where the lavishly-sized master bedroom awaits.
A duo of windows provides views out over the front, saturating the space with light. With ample room for a king-size bed, and an array of drawers, wardrobes and a dressing table, there is still plenty of space to stretch out and relax. Freshen up in the ensuite; your own private sanctuary.
Returning downstairs, step outside and into the garden, which wraps around from the front, where a secure gate to the side provides peace of mind for parents and pet owners. A paved area is perfect for barbecues, within easy reach of the kitchen, before enjoying the fruits of your labours – and the sunshine – on the raised decking to the rear. A gravel path leading to the rear gate separates the decking from the lush green lawn. So spacious, yet minimal maintenance, with plenty of room for all the family. Stash the garden furniture and mower in the substantially sized shed.
