Dating back to the early 1900s, Palmdene is a charming and deceptively spacious end of terrace house in superb decorative order throughout. The property has been extensively refurbished and modernised retaining the charm of the original house with its fireplaces, high ceilings and bay windows. Due to the location and well-presented accommodation the property would make a beautiful holiday home, letting property or permanent residence.
The ground floor includes a reception hall with stairs to the first floor and access to the spacious sitting room and charming dining room. The sitting room, with original stripped floor boards, has beautiful bay windows to the front allowing plentiful light to fill the room creating a relaxing and comfortable setting. Currently being used as a home office the room offers versatility. The traditional Victorian fireplace creates a focal point with a cast iron insert, wooden mantel and marbled hearth. The dining room is delightfully arranged with a lovely dining space and a further lounge area. Large windows overlooking the gardens provide wonderful countryside views as well as filling the room with light. Another traditional Victorian fireplace holds pride of place in the room with a charming brick surround. There is a shelved alcove with storage cupboards beneath. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of base and wall units and integrated appliances including a four-ring gas hob, Bosch oven and dishwasher. There is also space for a fridge freezer. Above the sink are windows looking out across the garden and surrounding countryside. These two rooms have fantastic engineered oak flooring.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms and the family shower room. The principle bedroom, with three fitted double wardrobes, is a generous size measuring approximately 14'8 x 12'7 with bay windows looking over the front and across open fields. The second double bedroom has built in cupboard and fitted shelving with hanging space. Windows overlook the garden and rolling countryside. Both rooms plus the stairs and landing have had new carpets recently fitted. The family shower room has a pedestal hand wash basin, w/c and walk in double length shower set against the bamboo flooring. Large loft space boarded, insulated and lit, potential for a third bedroom subject to necessary consents.
The basement level has a very unique arrangement with a hallway, modern cinema / sitting room and cloakroom. From the hallway there is a door leading outside to the garden. Plumbing for a washing machine. The large 14' x 10'10 basement room has been designed to create a modern and cosy cinema room with exposed ceiling beams, oak wooden doors and new carpet on the floor. This room creates the perfect environment to relax and chill but also has the ability to be used as a further bedroom, office or play room.OUTSIDE
To the front of the property is a gravelled parking area with two parking spaces. Immediately to the rear of the property is a large patio perfectly positioned to enjoy outdoor relaxation and al fresco dining. The rest of the garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature shrubs around the boundaries. From the garden there are delightful views of the surrounding countryside. The property is accessible via a side access from the front of the property.
At the far end of the garden there is a decking area with a removable storage unit on top. This storage unit has been created for the use of the current owners and will most likely be removed, however, this is subject to negotiation. Once removed the decking area offers an additional location for outdoor relaxation and would provide somewhere a little more secluded.SERVICES
