This main hallway provides access to all of the main rooms on the ground floor as well as the garage, it also has stairs to the first floor.
Characterful, Spacious & Beautifully Finished
On the right, an attractive wood panelled door leads into the living room. This generously sized room has a beautiful open fire with a slate hearth and handmade oak mantle and surround. A large double glazed bay window looking out to the front of the home ensures this room enjoys plenty of natural light. The room itself is tastefully decorated to match its period features including deep skirting boards, ceiling rose and picture rails.
Directly to the rear of the living room lies our favourite room in the house, the dining/ sitting room. This open plan area is a fantastic space where a family would likely spend most of their time. It has an Italian marble tiled floor extending throughout the room to the rear where large bi-folding doors can be found which provide access into the well maintained rear garden, making this the perfect place to entertain or spend time together.
The dining area itself has a lovely open fire, again, with reclaimed oak period fireplace, deep skirting boards, picture rails and ceiling rose matching that of the living room. This spacious room currently houses a large 8 seater dining table which doesn't dominate the room and leaves plenty of space for other furniture.
The sitting room area, as well as the bi-folding doors, has three sky lights providing generous amount of natural light throughout the day. These also have two spotlights positioned within each one for lighting the room in the evening. There is an arched privacy glazed window which looks into the breakfasting kitchen which lies adjacent.
Within the breakfasting kitchen, due to its generous size, there is plenty of space for another dining area, perfect for more informal dining or spending time as a family. The kitchen itself is beautifully finished with granite worktops, traditional solid oak panelled cupboard doors, quaint empty fireplace with slate floor. There is space for a Range oven, dishwasher and also a large window facing out to the side of the property, nicely positioned behind the sink.
To the rear of the kitchen, lies the utility room with plenty of storage in the form of cupboards, plumbing for a washer and separate dryer, 1.5 bowl ceramic sink with mixer tap above.
Through a partially stained glass door lies the ground floor WC with two piece white suite, pedestal style basin, low level WC, natural light via a window and also double cupboards as cloak space.
From the utility there is also a rear door leading out to the gardens. The garage can be accessed internally from the central hallway, where stairs with a half turn also lead to the first floor.
Five Versatile Double Bedrooms
The current owners have adapted the first floor landing over their time here, removing one bedroom to create further stairs to a second floor. This has given the landing a spacious open gallery feel making it a lovely peaceful space to sit and read a book. The window to the front of the property allows natural light in and is beautifully finished with wooden shutters.
The principal bedroom lies to the north west of the property and is a tremendous size. Dual aspect windows face both north and west allowing natural light to stream in, ensuring this is a fantastically bright and airy room. A walk in wardrobe offers a generous amount of storage. This bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom to the rear with circular bath complete with central filling taps, ‘his' and ‘hers' sinks, walk in shower, low level WC and large wall fixed mirror. The walls and floors are fully tiled with attractive travertine tiles.
The second bedroom on this floor has good views out to the rear garden, it is another generous double with deep skirting boards as well as double and single fitted cupboards, again ensuring there is plenty of storage.
The third and final bedroom on this floor lies to the front of the property and has wooden shutters, a charming alcove with in-built shelving and an array of built-in wardrobes.
The final room on this floor is the family bathroom which is a good size and again fully tiled with travertine wall and floor tiles. It has a three piece white suite with shower above bath, low level WC and basin with built in storage beneath. A privacy glazed window also provides natural light.
Stairs from the landing lead to the second floor.
The second floor also has a spacious landing perfect for enjoying quiet time with a coffee, again, natural light streams in this time via a Velux window above. The final two bedrooms are located on this floor both have two sources of natural light, storage into the eaves and both will comfortably take a double bed. Either of these rooms would also make a lovely spacious home office, far enough away from the day to day hustle and bustle of family life downstairs that you can maintain a good home-working balance without disruption.
Beautifully Presented Mature Gardens
Double wooden gates provide entry from Greencroft Avenue into Glenleigh's private driveway where you are immediately greeted by the impressive size and period features of this delightful family home.
Within the double gates there is access to the garage, a small block paved area to the front and a large parking area suitable for up to four cars. Lying down the side of the property there are double gates providing access suitable for parking another two vehicles. This also presents any owner with the opportunity to extend as there is ample space to add a two storey extension (subject to planning permission).
The rear gardens have been tastefully landscaped and have an attractive curved patio with traditional street lamp which borders the predominantly lawned garden area. The flagged patio itself leads round via the rear door to the utility and also to the bi-folding doors of the dining/ sitting room. There is a garden shed with small retaining stone wall.
Glenleigh's title extends to the far rear of the property incorporating steps up to an elevated patio currently utilised as a tranquil seating area offering a wonderful place to sit in the evening. There is a further retaining wall and then ample mature shrubbery providing the property with shelter, privacy and an incredibly mature green feel and backdrop.
