A classic Victorian villa forming part of an architecturally stunning street scene. The property offers exceptional accommodation, a large south west facing garden and parking for several vehicles.
Located on the early part of Park Place only moments away from Montpellier is this handsome semi-detached period home, set back from the road behind a wide lawned frontage with access off Andover Road to a private gated driveway. The house offers a rare combination of impressive lateral accommodation of just under 3700 square feet, a large walled garden and significant parking making it an excellent family home. Off a lovely reception vestibule and hallway is a large study, the main drawing room is an impressive and elegant space with a wide mullioned bay window to the front and overlooking the rear garden is another exceptional 24' reception, perfect as a games/family room. Off the rear hallway is an attractive sitting room with a door through to the kitchen/breakfast room, so superbly planned for relaxed entertaining. The kitchen is well fitted with an excellent range of storage cabinets and large central island along with ample space for a dining table and access directly out to the garden from French doors. Furthermore, the property also benefits from a downstairs cloakroom and a half cellar providing excellent storage and utility facilities. A wide staircase with wreathed handrail and overhead stained glass window rises to the mezzanine floor off which is a generous bedroom with dressing room and adjacent en-suite, also on this floor is the family bathroom and a short staircase rises to the first floor. The bedroom to the front is a fabulous room, with a wide mullioned bay window and extremely sunny aspect, served by a large en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms on this floor and an enclosed staircase rises to attic bedroom five.
Many of the rooms throughout the house are accompanied by fine period features to include highly ornate ceiling mouldings and roses, original period fireplaces, sash hung windows and exposed timber floorboards and the whole property is full of character with a light and bright atmosphere. The house occupies a prominent position on Park Place yet enjoys a feeling of privacy with a mature tree planted border to the front edging an expanse of lawn and a wide private driveway to the side that could accommodate five cars and is enclosed by electric double gates. The garden enjoys the perfect orientation, being south west facing, laid to a generous area of lawn with a good sized patio area and well established boundaries including the original walled boundary so enjoying an excellent degree of privacy.
In all, an outstanding town property of great style and character in a first class location.
