The property has been modernised and extended to create that all important kitchen family room which is so on trend. Toward the end of the west facing garden the owners have created a home office, attractive for any buyers who would like to work from home.
Why is period architecture so sumptuously attractive? Without question, the houses being built at the start of the last century were far superior to anything since. Cubically spacious rooms, charming detail and quality workmanship ensure the appeal hasn t faded in the time which has long outseen their first owners. The draw backs haven t always mirrored modern day requirements, however that has now been solved for through modern extensions and modernisation, the mix of architecture is a seriously attractive offering. The addition of the conservation status creates the assurance of extra planning control and the ongoing feel of the surrounding roads.

Additionally, the local bus routes and West Sutton train station provide extra travel and commute options Robin Hood, Homefield, Avenue Primary, Sutton Girls and St Dunstan s schools are all within short walks.
The property has three floors; ground, first and second. With a classical layout, the upper floors offer a mix of bedrooms and bathrooms whilst the ground floor provides living and dining space. The extension to the ground floor opens up the dining room and original kitchen and flows between the two, creating the most used room of the house for any family. With sumptuous styling and detailing the straight lines of the design highlight the modernity and creativity of the current owners. Accents of luxury are found at every angle including the limed Oak flooring and stone island. The sky lights and large sliding doors ensure high light levels. To maximise functionality of the family space the use of a separate utility room is paramount and most welcome. The drawing room retains many of the original features, and where these have been changed the spirit of the era has been reproduced to great effect. The leaded side windows and bay window infuse with the burner as eye drawing focal points. Lastly the downstairs cloakroom and hallway complete the ground floor. The upper floors consist of six sizable bedrooms and two bathrooms, all with distinct features and large to house large to medium families.
Externally, the south westerly facing garden measures circa 90 ft in length and has the aspect for any gardener or sun worshipper to relish. The design is simple yet creative and delivers in aesthetics and functionality, straight lines have been created by planting and landscaping which visually impress.
