Description

Alexandra House is an attractive and substantial family home enjoying generous and private gardens, yet located within easy distance of the town centre and railway station. Having been superbly and sensitively improved by the current owners, who are only the fifth to take ownership in its 100 year history; the house offers a versatile living space with a wealth of character features. A viewing is highly recommended. The property was first built in 1926 and reflects the highly fashionable Arts and Crafts design language, with low eaves, simple rendered elevations and cottage style windows. The house pays homage to the designs of noted architects of the period such as Charles Voysey. Offering a gas fired radiator heating system, replacement sealed unit double glazed oak windows and bespoke oak cabinetry to the kitchen/breakfast and utility room, the house retains a great many of its original features such as oak internal doors and joinery, ceiling panelling, fireplaces and tiled flooring.
