Description


16 Woodbourne Road is a charming and elegant residence that has a plethora of original features, such as Minton flooring, deep skirting boards, sash windows, fireplaces, detailed coving to the ceilings and stunning stain glass windows. The current vendors have restored some of these features sympathetically and they have renovated the property over time to create a family home of warmth, style and quality. The accommodation in total extends to some 5,661 sq ft.

The entrance to the property is through an attractive and detailed gothic style archway with wooden double doors that lead to the enclosed entrance porch. The inner door, which is a half panelled leaded door with beautiful stained glass insets, leads to the reception hall which is spacious and grand. The Minton flooring is immaculate, whilst the staircase to the first floor is large and imposing. Other features include panelling to quarter height, two central heating radiators, two ceiling light points and coving to the ceiling.

The four reception rooms are all of excellent proportions and enjoy a great deal of natural light due to the high ceilings and the large windows of each room. The dining room to the front and sitting room to the rear have large sash windows, detailed coving to the ceiling, handsome fireplaces, radiators and ceiling light points. The sitting room also has double doors that lead to the green rear garden. The other two reception rooms are ideal for everyday family living, with the living room to the rear also having fireplace, coving to the ceiling and doors to the outdoors and the breakfast room provides a more than adequate space for family dining. This room is positioned to the front of the house and has a log burner installed, wooden flooring, sash windows and a former butler's staircase that leads to the first floor. The utility room is also accessed through a door in the breakfast room.

The kitchen has windows overlooking both the front and rear of the property and has an array of wooden base and wall mounted units with coloured granite work surface over, one and half bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, integrated 'Bosch' dishwasher, 'Stoves' electric hob with warming plate and two double ovens beneath and 'Stoves' stainless steel canopy style extractor hood over. There is sufficient space for a large American style fridge freezer, a cupboard that houses the Potterton central heating boiler and programmer, spot lights to the ceiling and radiator.

To complete the ground floor accommodation, there is a shower room to the rear with low level W.C, wash basin, shower cubicle, tiled floor and spotlights to the ceiling. There is also a door down to the large basement which is dry and partly used to store wine.

First Floor

The first floor of the residence has an open and light landing that has a useful airing cupboard and provides access to all four of the double bedrooms that are located here. The master bedroom is situated to the rear and has a lovely outlook to the rear garden and a walk in wardrobe and wash basin. The three other bedrooms on this floor are all large and have fireplaces, coving to the ceilings and central heating radiators. The family bathroom is to the front of the house and has a clawfoot bath, separate shower cubicle, wash basin with mixer tap, heated towel rail and coving to the ceilings. The separate W.C is matching in decoration to the bathroom.

Second Floor

The second floor is accessed through a former butler's staircase and once more provides ample accommodation. This floor matches the layout of the first floor in that it has four double bedrooms, each with fire places, windows to the outdoors, ceiling light points and central heating radiators. The bathroom and W.C. Are separate, with the bathroom having bath with shower over, heated towel rail and wash basin with separate taps. The second floor also has an airing cupboard and a large store room to the rear, which could be used for further accommodation. Additionally, there is a hatch to the handy and insulated loft space.


Outside


At the front is a gated driveway with plenty of parking for numerous cars and there is a double garage with games room and W.C. Located above.

The rear garden enjoys a south facing aspect and has a pretty and bricked courtyard and patio area to the house which provide excellent entertaining spaces. Surrounding the lush lawned area are mature shrubs, plants and trees, with elevated flower beds as borders. There is a fish pond and further seating area towards the back of the plot that create a green and wonderful garden.
