An elegant and substantial detached family residence on the sought after Leckhampton Road.
Norwood is a beautiful Grade II Georgian residence dressed in mellow Ashlar stone and characterised by its classic symmetry and angles. It is as appealing externally as it is internally, with an abundance of period charm combining with a modern finish ideal for stylish living. Although the house has undeniable grandeur, it is very much a workable and manageable family home with impressive accommodation that flows with ease over three floors.
Entrance is gained through a pedimented porch leading to the main door and into the spacious, light filled entrance hall with an attractive slate flooring throughout. The drawing room, with open gas fire, is a grand room with a triple aspect bay window as the focal point and steps leading down to a wonderfully light garden room which also gives access to an outside terrace. The dining room shares the same proportions and elevations to the front, also with a fireplace and triple bay window. A short set of steps leads down to a study/snug room and a useful utility. The kitchen is set to the rear of the house with direct access to the gardens. This lovely room is the real hub of the house, spacious and well-appointed with a good range of units under solid wooden worktops and a Belfast sink there is ample space for a dining table.
A staircase leads down to further reception rooms on the lower ground level including a partially open plan sitting room and play room in addition to office space in a separate recess.
An elegant open string staircase rises to the excellent bedroom space on the first floor. There are five double bedrooms, one of which is en suite, with a family bathroom, separate shower and WC serving the remaining rooms.
Set behind wrought iron railings and occupying a prominent position on this sought after road, there is an immediate sense of splendour with attractive, balanced shrubbery to the front and the formal gardens arranged predominantly to the rear. The south westerly facing gardens have been recently landscaped to create a real feature to the property with an area of level lawn, which has been designed with simplicity in mind with easy to maintain well stocked borders, a gravel terraced area and further terrace accessed from the garden room. The professional re-design of the grounds has allowed for extra parking to the side of the house.
