Cumberland Road terraced Edwardian house

GUIDE PRICE: £800,000--£850,000. INTERNAL VIEWINGS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. Incredible proportions, classic period features and a stylish interior greet you in this exceptional Edwardian family home. Immediately warm and welcoming, it has been beautifully maintained by the current owners who clearly have a keen eye for colour and design, and the living spaces are versatile with four double bedrooms and two generous reception rooms. The pretty, south facing rear garden is a lovely extension of the home; ideal for dining alfresco, and there remains some potential for extension both up and out within the kitchen side return.

Why you'll like it...

Style: Terraced Edwardian house Bedrooms: 4 double Bathrooms: 2 Living Rooms: 2 spacious including kitchen Area: 1493 sq.ft. Outside: Walled south facing garden Location: Preston Park Conservation Area Parking: Permit zone K (no waiting list) Why you’ll like it: Introduction: Preston Village has been hugely popular with families and professionals alike for many years now. Set in leafy and peaceful environs, this historic area is attractive with a stunning array of architecture, but you are also perfectly positioned to access the city, several parks and a commuter station on foot. The local primary schools are Ofsted ‘outstanding’, and you are in the catchment for two of the most sought-after secondary schools, so it caters for a family’s every need. Brimming with character both inside and out, this substantial home is inviting on approach with wide bay windows on its gabled façade. Set back from the street, the tiled path leads past a neat slate front garden and into a vestibule for hanging coats and organising shoes. Stepping into the entrance hall, the true scale and beauty of the house becomes apparent, as you have a direct line of sight right through its depth to the gorgeous garden beyond. Light oak flooring runs throughout the ground floor for continuity, paired with fresh calico walls with the woodwork features picked out in white, and these classic features continue into the main reception room to the right. Living room: Once two rooms, the ground floor receptions have been opened to create one elegant, through living and dining room with dual aspect windows allowing natural light from the south to stream right through while bringing in views of the garden and the flint church opposite. A wide bay window almost covers the front wall and has been dressed with Venetian blinds for both style and privacy. The ceiling is high and crisp white walls serve to brighten the room further while furnishings have been used to define each space. There is ample room for relaxing, formal dining and entertaining in here, and a second door opens from the dining area to the hall near the kitchen which creates a sense of flow. The kitchen/breakfast room is equally spacious, so the layout is ideal for families with older children who may wish to entertain independently on occasion. Kitchen/breakfast room: Passing a stylish ground floor shower room – which also houses the utilities with a deep cupboard for two machines, you come to the beautiful kitchen and dining room. Again, the ceiling is gloriously high, and fitted within the last few years, the kitchen is modern but with timeless appeal. Shaker units in sage-grey have been paired with glistening white quartz-stone worktops, and into these the butler sink and gas hob have been seamlessly cut-in. The dishwasher and dual ovens have also been integrated, leaving space for an American fridge freezer, and an arm of the kitchen forms a breakfast bar lit by three industrial style pendants. The rear of the room is versatile depending on need. Ideal for dining, as a chill-out space or play area for little ones, it is generous and links seamlessly with the garden via a wall of bi-folding doors. This allows the garden to become a lovely extension of the home during the warmer seasons, and natural light streams in from the south adding natural warmth throughout the year. Garden: A fantastic size for a city garden, there is an area of lush green lawn bordered by the original brick walls which have been topped with trellis and fencing to allow climbing roses and flowers to wend their way across. This adds both colour and privacy to the space which is not overlooked at all, and sleeper flower beds are awash with lavender and rosemary for year-round scent. A fig tree, acer and aralia add further shape and texture to the garden which is a treat for the senses, creating a private oasis for dining al fresco. In such verdant surroundings filled with birdsong, you can easily forget you are so close to the city. Rear access to Home Road also allows you to bring muddy bikes, boots, buggies and paws around to the back, rather than traipsing them through the immaculate house. First floor bedrooms 2, 3 & 4 and bathroom: Returning inside, the first-floor landing stretches the depth of the house with two bright double bedrooms on the south side with restful tones on the walls and soft carpet underfoot. The room at the rear looks out over the tranquil garden and has a generous loft space above it which provides a huge amount of extra storage. Towards the front of the house is bedroom four, tucked in next to the master bedroom making it ideal as a young child’s room. It is a double room however, so it is ideal for all ages. The family bathroom is easily accessible from all and has a contemporary finish using large scale ceramic wall tiles in natural stone around a P-shape bath suite with shower over it. Master bedroom: Spanning the front of the property, the master bedroom is wonderfully spacious with a wide bay window to mirror the one in the living room below. It also has a sweet arched window adding character to the space and both look out to the pretty church opposite which adds to the ‘country’ feel of the area and this house. As expected, the decoration is classic, refined and has an immaculate finish, and in a room of this size, it would be possible to add an en suite bathroom of desired. Even with a king size bed and several large pieces of bedroom furniture, the floor space is not compromised, and holding a peaceful position near the end of the terrace means you can always ensure a restful night’s sleep. Agent’s thoughts: This is a stunning home for families of all sizes. It is versatile and welcoming with a stylish and characterful interior which has been beautifully maintained by the current owners. It really does need to be seen to be appreciated.

Agent's thoughts...

This is a stunning family home in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and Preston Park Station are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
