Situated on a terrace of pretty brick fronted houses, no 42 Richmond Road is a deceptively spacious property which dates from the early 1900's. The property has been very well maintained by the current owners and decorated with great style. A single and two storey extension was constructed in 2005 under the supervision of Scott & MacNeill Architects. The brief from the client was to allow the maximum amount of light to flood through the house and to take advantage of the sunny rear aspect. The property retains many original features which blend seamlessly with every modern comfort. The new owners will have little to do but move in.
The accommodation comprises a hallway leading to the front living room with a pretty cast iron fireplace and polished wooden floor. A door leads from the hallway to the open plan living/dining/ kitchen. This is an incredibly bright room with Junkers Beech flooring. The living area has a feature fireplace with gas fire as the main focal point. The kitchen area is fitted with a great range of maple floor and wall units by Heritage Kitchens with an island and a range of integrated appliances. The dining area has views of the garden with another seating area taking advantage of the great views. A utility area with fitted storage has plumbing for the washing machine.
Upstairs on the landing there is a storage cupboard and separate hot press. There are two double bedrooms, the main room spans the width of the property. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is located on the return.
To the front the garden is railed and laid in cobble lock paving while the south facing rear garden measures approx. 6m x 4.4m and is laid in low maintenance decking and chippings. The garden is very private and will appeal to those who enjoy gardening and al fresco dining.
