Undoubtedly one of the finest houses we have seen in the area. This impressive four/five bedroom detached residence is situated on a quarter of an acre mature plot in a highly favoured location on the west side of The Avenue close to the city golf course. This sought after neighbourhood was developed in the 1950's when two large houses were demolished and now offers an appealing range of individual, high value properties with unique character and identity. The most appreciative of purchasers will be impressed with the tasteful decor and the bespoke quality kitchen that is an outstanding feature of this fine home. Boasting a stunning open plan ground floor layout with full width bi-fold doors overlooking the mature garden, this property has been meticulously designed to take full advantage of the southerly aspect found to the rear. The stylish master bedroom suite that comprises a dressing room and en-suite bathroom is further enhanced with a large contemporary glass panelled balcony enjoying delightful views. Inset LED lighting found around the soffits create an attractive and atmospheric scene at nightfall. Planning permission has been granted for conversion of the double garage to a gym and utility room with the existing utility area providing a new garage and dressing room above serving bedroom three.


An oak door with double glazed side panels opens to the spacious reception hall that creates an impressive entrance. You are immediately greeted by the most stylish open plan design with a ceramic tiled floor that flows seamlessly throughout the ground floor. A contemporary styled oak staircase with glass panels ascends to the first floor, a door communicates through to the integral garage and there is a useful double coats cupboard. The cloakroom is fitted with a modern designer white suite. The stunning centrepiece of the ground floor layout is the lounge/dining room that has ample space for a table and chairs. Full width bi-fold doors have delightful views of the garden that allow natural light to flood in. An open aspect leads to the sitting room that is positioned to the left of the house and similarly has bi-fold doors overlooking the garden and is carpeted for comfort.
