No 61 Hough Green is a substantial and beautifully presented family home, having been enhanced over the years with the addition of a second-floor bedroom and the conversion of the garage to create an additional reception room. The property now offers beautifully presented free-flowing accommodation, having been refurbished by the current owners over the last few years.
The accommodation is particularly adaptable, having a ground floor family bathroom, in addition to a first-floor shower room, thereby allowing the family room to be used as a fifth bedroom, should it be required.
A recessed porchway gives access to the front door opening into a spacious central reception hall, having oak plank flooring and coved ceilings. To the front of the property is the principal reception room, featuring a living flame gas fire within a light oak surround with granite hearth, oak plank flooring and a floor-to-ceiling window with views to the front garden. Across the hallway is the former garage, recently converted to provide additional reception space which could equally serve as a fifth bedroom where required.
At the heart of the house is a wonderful open-plan dining kitchen fitted with a high-quality range of cabinets, including plate racks under oak block work surfaces. High-quality Neff appliances include a six-burner gas hob with extractor hood, an eye-level microwave oven, double electric oven and integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The kitchen also incorporates an integrated washing machine and drier. Oak plank flooring runs into the adjoining dining area, with a stable door giving access to the side of the house.
An inner hallway gives access to a luxurious family bathroom featuring a contemporary white suite, including a shower bath with side fill and drench head shower, a vanity sink unit, low-level WC, towel radiator and integrated ceiling speakers. The bathroom is fully tiled with attractive Travertine limestone tiles. Also having access off the inner hallway is a spacious garden room with southerly aspect through glazed French doors opening onto a paved terrace.
To the first floor is a spacious master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, an equally spacious guest bedroom and a third double bedroom. The bedrooms are served by a luxurious shower room with walk-in shower having a thermostatic drench head and tile TV, contemporary vanity sink cabinet, low-level WC and heated towel radiator. The shower room is fully tiled with attractive limestone Travertine tiles with mini floor uplighters.
An enclosed staircase leads to the loft conversion with dormer window providing tremendous views across the croquet and bowls lawns towards Westminster Park. The loft room provides double bedroom accommodation, with a door leading off to a roof void housing the gas-fired central heating and hot water tanks, and having scope to convert to provide en suite facilities.
