This charming detached home has come a long way since its' cottage existence having been sensitively and tastefully extended and upgraded over the years. Believed to be the first house built on Gordon Avenue the current owners have refurbished this fine family home retaining much of its character whilst providing all the benefits of a modern home. Positioned on a site of 0.3 acres approx. with private, west facing rear garden and off-street parking to the front.
The hallway of this delightful home is particularly bright enhanced by the galleried landing above which reflects light. A room to either side flanks the hall. There is a study to the left and the dining room to the right which also connects to a second hallway at the north wing of the house which houses the staircase and the guest toilet. This quirky design feature forms part of the allure of St Andrew's which defies conventionality in a well thought through plan with an excellent flow of accommodation providing both form and comfort in a stylish layout.
A door from the main hall brings you to the open plan family cum dining cum kitchen/breakfast room area. Undoubtedly the main hub of the house. The family area has an open cast iron fireplace. The dining area has French doors which open to the garden at the back and the kitchen, in keeping with the cottage theme, is a modern take on a country-style kitchen with mantel, centre island and window seat overlooking the garden. From here there is access to the inner hall. There formal drawing room is accessed from the main hall as well as the kitchen. A substantial sandstone fireplace by Artefaction provides a sense of grandeur and formality to this dual aspect room with French doors to the garden.
The first floor is home to four bedrooms. The main bedroom suite is complete with dressing area and a good-sized bathroom which overlooks the garden to the front. The family bathroom is well-appointed with bath and separate shower.
The generous site of approximately a third of an acre provides St Andrew's with a superb, private, west facing rear garden. A substantial patio area with sandstone paving stones maximises the westerly orientation with three gentle steps which lead to the main lawn. The garden is sheltered by mature shrubs and trees. There is a gravelled driveway with wide side access on the northern boundary.
