An absolutely beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house, extended and renovated to provide free-flowing accommodation throughout. The house has been decorated with real style and appreciation of its late Victorian heritage and is situated on a popular road close to the town centre, with off street parking for two cars.
Victoria House is a wonderful family home, well positioned on the ever popular and conveniently located Upper Grosvenor Road. The house is exquisitely decorated throughout and has been finished to a very high standard, perfectly blending original features with contemporary styling. There is excellent storage throughout, including a large cellar, and the off road parking for two cars is a welcome bonus.
Victoria House is a fabulous example of an extended and renovated Victorian property. Beautifully presented throughout to an exceptional standard the entrance hall of this truly wonderful family house is inviting and sets the tone for the rest of the property. A double reception room is to your right and is flooded with light from the large bay window, fitted with plantation shutters frame. A log burning stove sits beautifully in the feature fireplace, with alcove shelving and cupboards either side. Floor to ceiling cabinetry provide extensive storage solutions to the second part of this lovely room, currently used as a children’s play room, but it could lend itself well to formal dining, or an extension of the reception room.
However, as well as being utterly beautiful, this is a house that meets a number of practical needs, from the excellent storage throughout, the fabulous room proportions, thanks to their width and ceiling height, the secluded and secure west facing garden, and the off-road parking for 2 vehicles. This is the perfect home for someone moving to the town who wants easy access to the station and town centre amenities, whilst returning to a home that will never fail to welcome. A house for the head, and the heart.
On the first floor are three stylishly decorated double bedrooms, one with a very elegant ensuite shower room and all with beautiful sash windows and original fireplaces. The family bathroom is a good size with a slipper bath, and walk in shower. The loft space has been converted and offers a good size double bedroom and a bathroom, both with sloping ceilings and a lovely outlook across the roof tops.
The house is fine example of late Victorian architecture and is set back from the road, offering off road parking for two cars to the front. The rear garden has an area of decking and lawn, with attractive white rendered wall surrounds proving divides and interest to the garden. The garden faces west and so is fabulous for enjoying the afternoon and evening sun.
Victoria House is a very fine house, lovingly renovated and decorated by the current owners who have been extremely sympathetic in their styling choices. The resulting presentation of this house is simply exquisite, with a successful attention to detail throughout. The wealth of original period features – ceiling roses, cornicing, high skirting boards, sash windows and in many rooms, the original cupboards – are married very well with the more contemporary styling choices.
