Situated in a quiet, traffic free, cul-de-sac, No.21 bears just a vague resemblance to its original structure, having undergone an exceptionally extensive program of upgrading, remodeling, and extending and now comes to the market offering itself as a superior family residence with a wonderful blend of luxury and comfort, where you are immediately struck by the classic high-end finishes and the tasteful interiors.
Rich coloured semi-solid floors are present throughout the ground floor, creating a lovely flow to the accommodation. The spacious entrance hall leads through to a warm and inviting living room with half paneled walls and a feature double sided wood burning stove. There is also a guest w.c. and study off the hall along with under stair storage. The 'piéce de résistance' of the home is the incredibly impressive open plan kitchen / family / dining room, designed by architect Mark Davis of Arc Design, with carpentry by Kevin Kelly and a Newcastle Design kitchen incorporating a feature 3.2m x 1.5m island unit with a breakfast bar. Large, glazed panels in the ceiling stretch the entire width of the area, ensuring that the space is filled with natural light. The living area is focused on the double-sided stove mounted into a smartly paneled wall and flanked by fitted storage incorporating a desk area. There is an abundance of space around the dining area and a box bay window is fitted with window seating, giving it a New England feel, which continues outside where the extension has an appearance of wooden cladding. The kitchen is very classic and finished to an excellent standard. The Shaker style units have granite countertops and a feature hood over the Rangemaster. The kitchen comes with two full size integrated fridge/freezers, two integrated dishwashers, a wine fridge and sink with Insinkerator. There is also a separate utility room.
As you alight the stairs, the bespoke specifications continue, and your eye is drawn upwards where the joinery on the stairwell creates interesting angular features. Off the landing there is an en-suite double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and two further double bedrooms. A luxurious spa style bathroom has a large free-standing bath and a walk-in shower cubicle. A further flight of stairs brings you up to the large attic conversion (36sq.m. of the overall square footage)presented as the principal bedroom suite, which has a bedroom area with fitted chest of drawers and a vanity unit, a large walk-in closet and a further spa style shower en-suite.
To the front of the house there is a cobble locked driveway with mature planted beds and access to a garage. To the rear of the house there is a low maintenance garden with a paved patio dining area and a raised deck area to the rear of the garden is a lovely space for enjoying the sun throughout the day. The garden is bordered with mature bamboo.
