Overview

A handsome late Victorian four-storey house with an enviable and secluded garden situated in the heart of this sought after cosmopolitan market town.

16 King Henry's Road is an attractive brick-built and peg-tiled family residence with a range of characterful accommodation set across three floors and an abundance of retained original features, including high corniced ceilings with ceiling roses, bay and sash windows and feature fireplaces.

The grand porch with its eye-catching vibrant stained-glass panels opens out onto the charming reception hall, with its terracotta tiled flooring and characteristic Victorian fireplace with marble surround. Stairs rise to the first-floor level...

and lead down to the cool cellar below, whilst the hallway flows into a useful rear-facing office with a view and access to the garden. The two sizeable adjacent reception rooms both feature wide bay windows, lofty corniced ceilings, hardwood flooring and feature fireplaces, one with log-burning stove and traditional open fire. The updated open plan kitchen and dining room offer the ideal solution for modern families, with the useful utility, cloakroom, store and dual external access all accessible via the kitchen. French doors open onto the extensive garden via the dining room, flooding the space with warm natural light, offering an excellent space to dine and entertain. The well-appointed kitchen comprises a range of modern cabinetry, a large range cooker with 6-burner gas hobs and various integrated appliances.

The adaptable first-floor accommodation features two pleasing and generous bedrooms with bay and sash windows and elevated views divided by a dressing room and served by two contemporary family shower rooms. A peaceful study, or potential additional bedroom, with a view to the gardens, completes the floor, whilst the fine stairway rises to another sunny landing and the flexible second-floor rooms. Another well- proportioned, characterful bedroom sits adjacent to a handy store room, alongside which is a further family bathroom.

Outside

The property enjoys an elevated and set back position, with the main entrance accessed via a wrought iron gate beside a brick and stone-built wall beneath neatly trimmed privet hedges. Brick- aid steps lead up to the low-maintenance gravelled section of front garden with its feature tree and access to the secluded and established south- facing rear garden which comprises a well-thought- out stepped paved terrace interspersed with herbaceous borders spanning the width of the property, providing the ideal space to dine alfresco. Trees and shrubbery enclose the lawned plot.
