Brace yourself to fall deeply in love...
Welcome to Albany Gardens. A timeless street populated with unique and refined homes that reflect decades gone by in their stunning architecture and design. Erected in the 1930's, this home in particular has retained the soul with which it was imbued by its distinguished architect, George Gould.
Perfectly placed, the property is convenient to all the essentials, long stretches of golden sandy beaches are just a hop, skip and a jump away at the end of the road, a leisurely stroll to the towns amenities and main line station offering a service of trains to near-by cities and London.
The present owners have lovingly and painstakingly maintained the property, accentuating its high beauty whilst adding a dash of contemporary luxury.
After entering betwixt the twin 'Pillars of Strength' that guard the porch, you will be greeted by a spacious hallway that serves all rooms on the ground floor. Even this purely practical space is adorned with panelled walls, picture rails and exquisitely executed Amtico flooring, hinting at the truly stunning collection of rooms to follow.
Branching off from the hall you'll find yourself in the living room. Continuity is key; Amtico flooring and picture rails are both present and correct, but here you will also discover the first of two gorgeous bay windows that this property has to offer, affording a generous helping of natural light whilst simultaneously providing a panoramic view of the driveway, lawn and the street's namesake; the gardens, situated adjacent from the property. It won't be lonely or cold in this household this Christmas, with ample space and a marble-encased hearth, there's room for all the family to cosy up beside the crackle of the fire.
Heading deeper into this home you'll find a family-sized dining room and additional lounge, complete with its own fireplace and French Doors to connect this space to the garden beyond.
To the rear of the house is the kitchen. The beating heart of the home; you can almost smell the home-baking and Sunday roasts as your eye traverses the tiled floors and oak furniture, gas hob and leaded light windows, perfectly framing view of the flora beyond.
Ascending the carpet rod adorned staircase, you will find yourself in a multi-levelled landing. The lower level serves the shower room and separate toilet, the former being fitted with made-to-measure plantation shutters, rustic styled shower fittings and a skeletal sink frame to give the room a stripped-back and functional yet elegant aura. Moving to the upper landing you can peel off into one of four double bedrooms, two of which boast access to rafter space for storage. The master also boasts the presence of a second bay window, who's twin sits below in the lounge. Equal in dimensions but with a superior view of The Gardens.
The property is also equipped with a sizable garage, a garden that is both private and opulent and a convenient space to the side of the property which is ideal for, and currently used as, a space to facilitate barbeques in the summer months.
