The Accommodation
No. 9 is an imposing family property constructed of rough rendered brick under a tiled hipped roof with cast iron gutters and downspouts. The house is believed to date from the 1930’s and is very typical in its appearance with leaded windows, feature bay windows and decorative brick around the entrance. However there is a side double storey extension which is believed to have been added circa 1970’s and was underpinned some 30 years ago. There is no doubt that the house would benefit from a scheme of modernisation however the accommodation is comfortable and liveable being arranged predominantly over two floors with the benefit of gas being connected albeit the boiler is no longer functioning. One cannot ignore the potential the property holds as there is scope to extend, remodel or rebuild entirely, subject to gaining a satisfactory planning permission, within a superb plot in an extremely desirable address.

A glazed front door opens into the vestibule leading into a spacious entrance hall and foyer. To either side of the hall are the principal reception rooms comprising dining room and lounge in addition to the kitchen. The dining room is elegant and well-proportioned room with a large bay window to the front and could be adapted as another living area. The lounge is a particularly comfortable room with a slate fireplace with electric fire and French window and corner window with pleasant aspect over the rear gardens. Off the hall is the cloakroom and beyond is the kitchen requiring a full scheme of modernisation. Beyond is a separate pantry and access to the integral garage and workshop which is readily adaptable as home/work space or to possibly form part of the main living space.

The second-floor accommodation is accessed via a turned timber staircase to an open landing. From the landing access is gained to 3 bedrooms served by a family bathroom, separate wc and large linen store. Beyond bedroom 3 are 2 further double bedrooms and/or workspace. The floor area extends to approximately 195sq.m (2,106sq.ft) of accommodation.

Outside
The property is accessed through a pillared entrance onto a substantial parking area beneath the west front. A profound feature of No.9 is the lawned, private gardens which are dispersed with mature shrubbery and trees including Copper Beech, Leylandii and Magnolia creating a lovely private setting. A York stone pathway leads past a south facing greenhouse to the extensive rear gardens. As the garden is suitably proportioned, this gives good scope for extension to the rear for the property without impacting on the external setting and space. A series of pathways and beds gives an ever changing landscaped which has plenty of flower beds with roses and perennials complemented by a large patio area abutting the house. No.9 is situated in approximately 0.3 acres (0.12ha).
