IMG_18703_31_largeLet’s take a step back in time this Saturday 30th July, at this Victorian home in Ash Vale, dating back to the 1870’s.  With three bedrooms, two reception
rooms and open fireplaces, this double fronted detached home is true to form.  Not only does it present space and versatility, but it possesses a prized sense of character and heritage.  Furthermore, being situated close to local amenities such as the post office, library and schools, the home is conveniently positioned for all.  It is also well served by travel links as it is situated along a regular bus route and within walking distance to the station.

The lovingly maintained property preserves its original character features, including fireplaces, exposed wood flooring, quarry tiled floors, bay windows, picture rails and the list goes on.  This together with the contemporary styling of the home, establishes a wonderful synergy of the old and new, giving the home an endearing warmth and much charm.  This inspiring home has benefited from numerous enhancements over the years, supplementing the original two reception rooms with a spacious kitchen breakfast room, an additional family/guest room and a utility room.  This has resulted in a well-appointed and flexible home, where the bonus family room that also features an en suite shower IMG_18703_26_largeroom, could be used as an additional bedroom or guest room.  With French doors opening onto the landscaped garden, the room tends a pleasant vista and is a bright and airy space, making a notable addition to the home.

Both reception rooms sit to the front of the home.  The classic and elegant dining room, with an open fireplace, rests to the left whilst to the right of the hall is a light living room that features a gas fireplace and exposed wood flooring.  Picture rails and large bay windows are featured within both rooms injecting a comforting charm to the property.

IMG_18703_28_largeThe kitchen sits centrally within the home and has a bright dual aspect outlook as you are guided onto the family/guest room and the utility room, from which you can also access the rear garden.  Tiled flooring extends through the kitchen enhancing the spacious feel and works well with the contemporary and neutrally toned units to brighten up the space.  This contrasts well with the polished work surfaces, inset light and chrome fitments, complementing the style perfectly as it injects a touch of freshness and brightness to the space.  There is plenty of space here for a range of appliances, including a gas range and a coal fired Rayburn.

IMG_18703_30_largeAcross the first floor you will find two double bedrooms, with an open fireplace to one and built in wardrobes to the other, and the family bathroom. The bathroom is another spacious and light room, with a white suite and benefits from built in storage and an airing cupboard.

The grounds of the property and the convenient locality make this home even more desirable.  The stunning landscaped garden to the rear is private and enclosed, with a pleasant outlook and would make a great space for entertaining.  Mature plants, fruit trees and flowers are interspersed throughout the garden.  Parking is available to the rear of the home and there is plenty of space to potentially erect an outbuilding or garage (STPP).
