What we like
"This home is simply delightful. It's picture perfect with its double fronted exterior and fabulous gardens. The collection of fruit trees add to that perfect image of the ideal family home. The elegant high ceilings in this home add a feeling of grandeur. To find a period home with so much off street park
ing and a large double garage is rare in this area of the city"
The living spaces
Come with us, through the front door and step through the traditional vestibule into the spacious hallway. Straight away it is evident that this is a home which is not only light and airy but also full of original features. Let's begin with the traditional staircase, stripped wooden flooring and the deep skirting boards. It's set the scene of the home. This is a staircase which is truly central to the home. All ground floor rooms lead off it and there is a useful ground floor wc for visiting guests.
Turn left into the sitting room. Given the fact this home has 4 reception rooms - the current family have chosen to use this as a more casual room - a place the children can study for their exams but also relax on the corner suite. The decor is fresh in neutral shades. The original sash window looks out over the front garden.
Next is the main, more formal lounge splendid with its dual aspect sash windows and roaring open fire. You'll have noticed by now just how the ceilings are - a characteristic of the era of this home.
Across the hallway is the bright area family room. Picture rails, original cornicing and beautiful decor in cream tones stand out against the laminate flooring. This room has views over the garden and driveway. A living flame gas fire creates a warming focal point.
Light floods the kitchen from 3 different angles as the owners installed a glazed door that leads through to the conservaotry to the rear. The units have been kept simple in white, allowing the green views over the garden to do the talking. There is the breakfast room, set just off the rear hallway - a place to casual dine and used as an extension to this kitchen. The conservatory is being utilised in many ways as an over sized porch and utility area.
Let's go upstairs
Let's go upstairs to the large landing area. There are 5 bedrooms in total - 4 of which are double bedrooms. The large master bedroom looks out the front and is beautifully presented in calming neutral shades. All of the bedrooms have superb views looking out over the gardens that surround the home. The fifth bedroom is an excellent single - however should you not need a 5th bedroom, why not make this into a luxury en-suite? - it is next to the guest bedroom & the plumbing is in place ready already.
The family bathroom features a 3-piece coloured suite complemented by crisp white tiles. There is a shower over the bath.
The gardens at Barton Road are a superb feature of this home. The home itself stands in approximately 1/4 acre of a plot. The home sits centrally on the plot which allows the space for the home to be extended. An impeccable privet hedge circulates the lawned gardens ensuring ample privacy.
The lawned garden allows space for children to play. There are a number of fruit trees including apple trees, pear and plum. There are outbuildings for storage, the potential to create a workshop or even use as a home gym. The possibilities are endless.
The double garage and driveway
Do you need a large driveway? Maybe you would like a double garage? Car enthusiasts, builders, joiners and people with a motorhome will love the outdoor space and parking facilities Newsham House offers. There is the space for numerous vehicles.
