Tenison Road is situated in a most desirable prime City location ideally placed for access to the Railway Station which has direct links to London. The historic City Centre is only a short walk away together with an extensive range of amenities situated on Mill Road. The property falls within the catchment for St Pauls although there are a number of independent schools available nearby including the Stephen Perse, St Faiths and the Leys.

This beautiful city home has been significantly improved in recent years by the current owners. A thorough and sympathetic refurbishment has maintained many of the original period features whilst enabling the creation of a modern space which is ideally suited to family occupation. Replacement timber double glazed windows, new radiators throughout and a new slate roof are just a small number of the improvements that have been made.

The ground floor accommodation has been thoughtfully configured to make use of the available space with a sizable rear extension making way for an impressive kitchen family room which is beautifully appointed with a range of modern cabinetry and integrated Siemens appliances, including Pyrolytic Double Oven / Combi Oven. This room is a bright and airy space which is well-suited for entertaining as well as providing a practical space for day-to-day family living. Architect designed skylight windows and a full width glazed aluminium door to the rear provide an abundance of natural light as well as access and views onto the rear paved terrace and mature walled garden beyond.

To the front of the property is a generous through reception room with a large bay window with bespoke shutters to the front and original Victorian glazed doors to the kitchen providing a plentiful supply of natural light. This room also benefits from exposed victorian pine flooring, original coving and ceiling rose, a range of bespoke fitted cabinetry and a working fireplace with the original period surround.

On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. All of the rooms are of good proportions with the front double bedroom being of particular note. This room spans the entire width of the house with two large sash windows providing a good amount of natural daylight. This room and the neighbouring double bedroom, which has a sash window overlooking the rear of the property, both benefit from bespoke fitted wardrobes and original Victorian fireplaces.

The upper floor makes way for the stunning principal bedroom suite which commands far reaching city views. It is beautifully appointed to a high specification with a range of bespoke storage solutions and a tastefully fitted modern en-suite shower room.

The property is set back from the road behind a walled front garden which has been landscaped and is bordered with miniature box hedging. The rear garden is of a particularly good size and is well stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There are various paved seating areas, gated rear access and a timber storage shed.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
