A unique and rather special opportunity to purchase a substantial detached residence with versatile accommodation in all extending to about 3,800 square feet with large south facing gardens, in all of about 0.6 acre, occupying a most desirable location

A unique and rather special opportunity to purchase a substantial detached residence with versatile accommodation in all extending to about 3,800 square feet set in mature south facing gardens, in all of about 0.6 acre, located in a most desirable location within the highly sought after west city residential area, about a mile from the centre.

• Private south facing gardens
• 7-8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
• 3-4 reception rooms
• Integral annexe with bathroom
• Wide ‘in-out’ driveway with double garage
• Easily sub-divided to two separate dwellings (subject to obtaining necessary consents)
• EPC rating B

This substantial property, built in 1935 by the present owner’s family, was extended to almost double the size in 1967, and was subsequently occupied as two separate dwellings with connecting doors for many years. It has now reverted to a single occupancy, but could easily be converted back, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

(Note: The property has two separate gas fired central heating systems, one via radiators and the other is warm air ducts. Both parts of the house have separate gas and electricity metres.)

The accommodation includes two separate front entrance halls, both with cloakrooms and stairs off to the first floor. The original hall has parquet flooring and the stairs wind up a semi-turret on the front of the house to the landing. The original kitchen is now used as the utility room, which has two storage rooms and the boiler room off with a Butler’s Pantry adjacent. Beyond that is the ground floor annexe bedroom with en suite bathroom.

The dining room has French windows overlooking the back garden, recessed display shelves, timber flooring and wide double doors to the drawing room. This room has a large bay window with French windows to the garden, timber flooring, display recess and an open fireplace with marble surround.

The kitchen is in the more recent part of the house with a range of wall and base units and serving hatch to the sitting room.

The sitting room is accessed from the second reception hall and has French windows to the back garden, parquet flooring and a retractable partition wall which enables this room to be sub-divided.
In the first floor, the landing stretches the full width of the house with interconnecting door.
Off the original landing are three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate W.C. A door leads through to the main bedroom with dressing room/bedroom adjacent and a second bathroom with separate W.C.
There are two further double bedrooms overlooking the back garden and a bedroom, currently used as a study, to the front.

The property is set back from the road behind a mature hedge with in-out driveway providing parking for several vehicles and there is a double garage at one end.

To the side of the house is a yard with two storage sheds off and a door giving access to the house.
The large south facing garden has kitchen garden areas on each side with a greenhouse and mature fruit trees, a utility/compost area to the rear and a large central lawn area, in the past used as a grass tennis court, with wide border down one side.
Closer to the house is a more formal garden with wide borders and mature hedging with large patio area adjacent to the house.

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.
