Situated in a quiet, yet convenient location close to amenities and the River Hamble, ideal for the sailing enthusiast, a stunning substantial Edwardian family home offering 2700 sq ft of characterful accommodation. The house is immaculately presented and has a wealth of original features retained including a cast iron open fireplace with slate hearth, original painted pine floors and reclaimed cast iron radiators throughout the ground floor. The accommodation is well proportioned with a superb live in kitchen/breakfast/family room which extends practically across the entirety of the back of the house; the family area is a beautiful orangery with Stovax woodburning stove, French doors lead to the rear garden whilst the kitchen has ample painted cupboards with oak and quartz worktops, central island unit and a double Butler’s sink with chrome mixer taps. My clients have resided at the property for over 3 years and have carried out various improvements to this beautiful home including converting the garage to an impressive self contained guest suite with Sitting Room, Kitchen area, shower room and bedroom. Outside, to the front of the property is driveway parking for two cars. Steps and sloping path lead down to the front door with original slate tiled porch with Edwardian tiles. To the rear of the house is a substantial paved terrace with seating areas, steps lead down to the remainder of the garden which are west facing, fully fenced, laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging.
