A handsome 1930’s family home with modern style.
As you approach 14 Fosseway, you realise why houses don’t come up for sale here very often and why it’s such a desirable location in our favourite bijoux city. Positioned on a quiet tree lined road it’s hard to imagine that you’re less than a 10-minute walk to the town centre with its array of shops and restaurants. This stunning 5-bedroom detached home has been recently renovated by the current owners to provide space, style and light, and no expense has been spared. It’s simply immaculate and ready for you to move into. Once you’ve parked your car on the large gated driveway, and entered the front door, you can see the wonderful flow of the house from the spacious light filled hallway with its wooden floor and designer oak staircase.
Head through to the vast sitting room where you can take in the view to the private back garden framed by bi-folding doors onto the patio – perfect for entertaining but more of that later. For cosy nights in, the room has a stunning remote-control fireplace which is utterly mesmerising – curl up with a good book and your favourite tipple and you’ll never want to leave. This beautiful room is filled with light and is a great size for social gatherings. Back into the hall way and you find another living room with plenty of room for comfy sofas and designer touches or alternatively it could be used as a children’s playroom. Whatever you decide it’s great to have a choice of reception rooms.
At the front of the house is the dining room, again with wooden floors, a log burner gas fireplace and our favourite, a window seat for those rare moments we can shut ourselves away and have a bit of peace and watch the world drift by. Just off the dining room is the kitchen with a terracotta tiled floor, ideal for mucky paws, and every integrated appliance you could wish for including a large American fridge freezer and room for a small kitchen table. The utility room follows on from the kitchen, with a storage cupboard, which could easily convert to a pantry, a smart cloakroom and direct access to the garden.
The garden is truly a great size for everyone to enjoy. The vast patio area is perfect for outdoor entertaining with surrounding lights and a water feature. The huge lawn is surrounded by established borders with plenty of shrubs and trees. And there’s even a summer house right at the bottom of the garden with a couple of benches, which is a real oasis of tranquillity.
But that’s not all this beautiful outdoor space has to offer. There’s a substantial brick garage which has already been sectioned off inside and is ripe to turn into a workshop and office space – there’s even a dog bath/shower in situ. However, the current owners have gone that one step further and had plans drawn up and recently approved to develop the garage space further along with a single storey extension. With the planned shower room this would be a fabulous addition to this already spacious home.
