Easily making the Grade
Catherine Golding is getting excited about this imposing, Grade II Listed detached Edwardian house – read on and find out why
When I see that a house is more than 100 years old I get excited. I love the character of a period property but I know that many yearn for the modern conveniences that are readily available nowadays.
Well, estate agents Marcus Parfitt may be able to please us all with this imposing, Grade II Listed detached Edwardian house, as it offers both. There are perfect parquet floors and wood-panelled walls displayed alongside the modern kitchen beautifully lit up by downlighters.
Set back behind a carriage driveway, it was built by CHB Quennell circa 1908-9 and comprises in excess of 7,500sq ft (700sq m). The raised ground floor has a vestibule, a large entrance hallway, guest WC, drawing room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and access to balconies off both the kitchen and the study.
The first floor is home to a family bathroom and the bedrooms – well five of them at least (including the master bedroom with en-suite dressing room and bathroom).
Up on the second floor are two/three further bedrooms (one en suite) and another bathroom, kitchenette and a gym/media room/bedroom also with access to a balcony.
Meanwhile, way down on the lower-ground floor there is staff accommodation (comprising separate bedroom, kitchen and shower room), a games room, cellar, boiler room, extensive internal and external storage plus a garage. Here you can access the terrace and the 130’ rear garden.
In my mind, this substantial family home more than makes the grade. I hope you’ll agree.
