Splendid Period Four Bed Project With Garage - CHAIN FREE

What a marvellous opportunity! Commanding an impressive corner spot on the much loved Perry Vale, this detached four bedroom period home is begging for your flair. Ok it needs work, but that's the fun part! From your first glimpse the amazing potential will shine through. Bright, beautifully proportioned rooms, wide inviting hallways, high ceilings, period features, sizeable rear garden with side access AND a detached double story garage - it's a real winner. The accommodation is spread over two delightfully spacious floors to generously comprise two grand reception rooms, dining room, kitchen, four wonderful double bedrooms, bathroom, wc and shower room. The garage is accessed from Woolstone Road and offers any amount of possible uses. Subject to planning, one's imagination could really create something special.

The front garden leads promptly to a neat porch which in turn opens to a wide hallway with solid original staircase, dado rails, picture rails and cornicing. The first mammoth reception invites you left. It has a lovely front bay window, original feature mantel with matching mirror, ornate cornicing and ample space for lounging, dining and those notorious dinner parties you'll be known for. Further down the hall, past the wc and storage point, you meet the dining room which boasts an original mantel, large side aspect casement window and original fitted storage cupboard. Perhaps you might knock through to the front room for a most impressive living/dining area? The kitchen sits beyond, down two steps. While not much to speak of currently - we trust your vision will transform it. At the end of the hall you'll meet another reassuringly large living room with original arched feature mantel, picture rails and cornicing. A wide rear bay offers access to the generous 65ft garden which is not overlooked from the rear and further benefits from side access. The garage is accessible from the garden and also Woolstone Road. It's a charming building with vaulted ceiling and raised hay loft window.

Back inside, head up the handsome staircase (with original newel post and balustrades) to a splendid L shaped landing which is as wide as it is bright. A wall of dated storage could make way for a wall of artwork which would be illuminated perfectly by the large side aspect window. Your masterful main bedroom stretches over five metres to include two front aspect windows, feature mantel, fitted storage and picture rails. It could comfortably host an en suite. The main bathroom also faces front. The mushroom colour suite is almost retro - stick with it! A neat shower room with loo sits next door. You'll find two more large double bedroom, each facing rear over the garden. Both have feature mantels and picture rails. A fourth and final side facing double bedroom completes the tour nicely.Read More
