Dating back to the 1930s, No. 149 Pinhoe Road is set back from the road in an elevated position with parking to the front and a south facing rear garden with useful outbuilding. Over recent years, the current owners have transformed the property and it now provides spacious and useful accommodation including a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/living room with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden, perfect for family life and entertaining. Much of the charm of the original features has been retained, along with new materials and modern attributes, including original doors, fireplaces, wood burner, picture rails, uPVC double glazed windows and bi-fold doors.ACCOMMODATION
The original stained glass wooden front door with matching side windows opens to the entrance hall with exposed floorboards and plenty of space for storing outerwear. Throughout the ground floor accommodation is a combination of timber and durable laminate flooring.
The reception space is particularly impressive. The box bay-fronted sitting room overlooks the front aspect and centres on a fireplace with tiled hearth and wooden surround. The fantastic open plan kitchen/living/dining room provides plenty of space for day-to-day family living and the 'L' shaped design makes a natural divide between the kitchen, dining and living areas. The addition of a wood burner, bi-fold doors and two double Velux windows allows the room to be used throughout the seasons with plenty of light flowing through. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted, comprising an extensive range of grey gloss units, including double ceramic sink, pantry cupboard, integrated appliances and space for a range-style cooker.
The ground floor is supported by some excellent service rooms, including a large under stair storage cupboard and a useful utility room with a further range of units, ceramic sink, space and plumbing for laundry appliances and wc.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom includes a box-bay window, fireplace with tiled surround and bespoke built-in wardrobes. The second bedroom is a similar size, again, with a tiled fireplace and benefits from a large under stair storage cupboard, whilst the third bedroom provides plenty of space for a single bed or a useful study. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising panelled corner bath, wash basin with storage cabinet under and corner shower cubicle.
The attic space includes a Velux window and is accessed by a further staircase and could be used as further accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.OUTSIDE
