No. 7 College Avenue is a beautifully maintained and well-proportioned bay fronted period house with a red brick facade. The current owners have cleverly updated the property to fully utilise the space, while retaining the original features, including cast iron fireplaces, picture rails and ceiling cornicing. The recent attributes include double glazing, new kitchen and bathroom. Outside there is a fully enclosed courtyard garden.ACCOMMODATION
From the entrance vestibule a pretty colour glazed door leads through to the entrance hall with stripped floorboards, stairs to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation. Beneath the staircase are three useful storage cupboards, providing plenty of space for tidying away outerwear.
The current owners have extended the kitchen to make a fantastic family room, with plenty of space for a table, an opening through to the second reception room and double doors opening through to the courtyard garden, making the perfect space for entertaining and family living. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of matching wall and base units, extensive range of worktops, plus space and plumbing for appliances.
There are two separate reception rooms. The sitting room includes exposed floorboards, a fitted bay window seat with useful storage below, original cast iron fireplace with tiled inset and wooden surround and an alcove cupboard. The second reception room is currently used as a playroom, although easily lends itself as a dining room and, again, includes alcove cupboards and a fireplace recess.
On the first floor is a split level landing leading to the family bathroom and from the main landing there is a further staircase leading to the second floor. The family bathroom is tastefully fitted with a suite comprising low level wc, pedestal wash basin, tiled shower cubicle with glazed sliding door and roll top freestanding bath. The principal bedroom includes a large walk-in bay window, cast iron fireplace and fitted wardrobes built into the alcoves. The second bedroom, again, includes cast iron fireplace with painted mantel over and a window to the back.
