Step inside

Pull up on the driveway and take a moment to admire 1 Lonsdale Avenue. The first thing you'll notice is just how different it is to neighbouring homes on the street. This is a double fronted home which has always attracted admiring glances, such is its kerb appeal.

Step through the open canopy porch and into the spacious hallway. The stained leaded glass in the entrance doorway is the original. The owners had it encapsulated when they had the door replaced 8 years ago. The stairs ahead lead to the upper floor. There is a useful cloaks cupboard tucked under these stairs.

The door ahead leads through to the spacious kitchen diner. We'll begin though by turning left into the lounge.

The ground floor living

The bay fronted lounge to the left and the sitting room to the right both have high ceilings, a characteristic which dates back to the era of the home. The original cornicing and internal doors all still feature. Both of these reception rooms have a relatively neutral decor, with a feature wallpaper enhancing one wall. The lounge has a living flame gas fire, the sitting room has a working open fire.

Next is the spacious kitchen diner. Retro in style, this amber yellow kitchen would have been a fashion trend of its time with solid tall units that meet the ceiling providing lots of useful storage. Built-in is a double oven in stainless steel and 4 ring gas hob. There is ample space to dine.

The door to the rear leads through to a useful porch finished in uPVC.

The first floor bedrooms

Head back to the hallway and take the stairs up to the first floor. Note the stained glass window and how like the entrance, the original glass has been encapsulated. It is a beautiful feature, especially when the sunlight streams through, naturally lighting up the hall.

The master bedroom is to the front, looking out over the mature front garden. It has dual aspect windows.

The 2nd bedroom ( the photo with the twin beds ) is also a spacious double bedroom and again looks out to the front, whilst the generous sized 3rd bedroom is large enough to accommodate a double bed if needed. All of the bedrooms have the feature high ceilings.

The bathroom has a 3-piece suite in white. In more recent times, the bath was taken out so a walk-in shower could be installed. There is a built-in airing cupboard - this is where the Vaillant gas combination boiler is housed (it has been serviced annually).

The gardens, drive and garage

Lonsdale Avenue is a home which has a very green and mature front garden. It is laid to lawn with deep borders and a variety of mature trees, bushes and shrubs which provide all year round colour. To the rear, there is an enclosed courtyard which faces south and feels sheltered from any breezy weather.

A tarmac driveway provides off-street parking for 2/3 vehicles and leads to the detached garage. The garage is equipped with power, light and water.
