Forming the end of a row of three highly individual and dissimilar late Georgian houses with Victorian addition, 16 Springfield Place has most recently had a Nursery School run in the spacious basement. Now in need of a general update, the potential for adaptation is limited only by imagination and will make a wonderful family home for the 21st Century. There are many retained character features including moulded cornicing and imposing fireplaces now fitted with gas coal effect fires, all of which add to the appeal of this sizeable home. Arranged over three split level floors plus the basement rooms, the ground floor comprises an entrance lobby and hall with cloakroom. The principal reception rooms include a magnificent drawing room with a front facing bay window, fireplace and opening to the dining room. With a bay window to the rear, there is also access to a conservatory which takes full advantage of the views. Also on this floor is the kitchen/breakfast room and cantilever stairs both up and down. The first floor is approached via a half landing with family room or additional bedroom and also comprises the principal bedroom with bay window and a short flight of steps down to an en-suite bathroom. There is a further bedroom on this floor with views from the bay window. The next half landing comprises a potential staff wing with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and WC. The second floor has three bedrooms, two of which are connected though could be separated if required. The basement stair lobby has a door to the garden with access to two vaults/workshop and wine store. To the front is the former nursery room with vaults beyond, flooded with natural light from roof lights, sink and slate shelving. The rear room is fitted with larder cupboards, half bay window and boiler. Note: This floor could potentially be converted to a self-contained apartment if required, subject to permissions etc.
The house lies behind a dwarf retaining wall and hedge with stone pillars to off-road parking. A formal lawn and a well-stocked shrubbery concealing a secure cycle store at the side. An established and walled garden lies to the rear with formal lawn and further mature planting, including a Gingko tree and rear terrace with a garden house. Numerous shrub beds surround two water features. A brick tool shed and dilapidated greenhouse are within the garden and below the conservatory is a covered area with coal store and garden WC.
