What we like
"This home both surprises and delights. To begin with, the bedrooms are all doubles and just wait until you see the secret study area set off the huge master bedroom. You'll love the kitchen diner and all the storage it offers. The current family re-modelled it so the whole family could easily dine together. Did we mention how the rear garden has been landscaped.....:
About this home
Appearances can often be deceptive and this is certainly the case at Avondale Road. What appears to be an ordinary yet perfectly presented terrace home set amongst other similar styled homes, opens out to be a surprisingly spacious tardis. This is a home which is bigger than you'd expect, thanks to the re-modelled living space and superb attic conversion. Not many homes can boast 3 double bedrooms!
Throughout you will discover an immaculately presented home. This is a home where careful consideration to storage has been given. The garden has been landscaped and you'll be pleased to discover it is also not overlooked. We look forward to showing you around.
The living space
Enter through pastel painted front door into the entrance vestibule. The beautiful decor sets the tone with the original lincrusta panelled walls and stunning Italian fabric wallpaper styled to complement the main entrance.
Step through to the bay fronted lounge. The traditional style living flame gas fire suits the character of this home. The fire surround is hand crafted in wood. You won't find another one like it. The coving and picture rails are the original - a highly popular characteristic of these 1930's homes.
Follow us through to the superb kitchen. If you want a kitchen where your family can dine, breakfasts can be enjoyed and the children can craft at the table, you have just found it. This is a kitchen which truly is the heart of the home. There is ample storage with the modern units, space for all your appliances and a walk in pantry which extends under the stairs. This kitchen is ideal. In the winter keep cosy with living flame gas fire. Come the summer you'll be wanting to open the stable door so the fresh air can come in and you can hear your children's copious laughter as they play in the fabulous rear garden.
The bedrooms and bathroom
Come with us up the stairs to the first floor landing. The master bedroom awaits you. This truly is a relaxing sanctuary and a rather spacious one too. This room used to be two bedrooms. Today it is one large bedroom which features the original wooden flooring. It's light and bright thanks to the twin double glazed windows. Wondering where the 2nd door leads? Peak through at the custom made study area - or would you prefer this as a boutique dressing area?
The 2nd bedroom is perfect for children. Floor to ceiling wardrobes run along one wall and provide so much storage. This room has a view over the rear garden. We love how the original flooring and doors have been retained.
The 3-piece shower room is fit with a 3-piece suite in white. It's fresh and crisp with built in storage set into the vanity wash basin.
Continue upto the 2nd floor. The attic has been cleverly converted into a 3rd double bedroom. This room is beautifully presented and well insulated. The velux window allows for your little ones to gaze at the stars. Twinkle, twinkle little star anyone? Storage has once again been carefully considered with space created in the eaves to store your suitcase ready for the summer holidays!
Outside the home
This is a home with great kerb appeal which starts with the Victorian styled black wrought iron railings. Head to the rear and the garden has been landscaped. It feels private with stylish fencing and mature clematis. The garden has been designed with slate grey Indian sandstone flags and easy to maintain AstroTurf which was laid in 2016. The garden also has planted borders which add colour and interest.
