A double-glazed door opens into a long hallway, with stairs leading up to the first floor. There is a traditional column radiator, and this style has been used throughout the property.
The modern kitchen has a contemporary style with exposed brick walls and concrete worktops. There is an alcove with a rangemaster cooker and a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap is under the side aspect window. There is also a breakfast bar island and pantry shelves.
Through the kitchen is the utility room. In here you will find the boiler and plumbing for a washing machine, with plenty of room for a tumble dryer or storage and access to the back garden.
The spacious living room/diner has ample space for entertaining guests. There is a recently restored fireplace for those cold winter nights and exposed floorboards and high ceilings run throughout the period property. The living area has a large bay window to the front street which makes the room very light and airy and two double doors to the rear overlooking the garden. The dining area has a separate doorway to the kitchen.
The stairs to the first floor have also been stripped back to the original design with a white spindle balustrade which curves around the upstairs landing.
A newly modernised bathroom is just along the hallway, with low level WC, stylish wash hand basin and walk in shower. The whole shower unit and bathroom taps are brushed nickel from The Cast Iron Bathroom Company. The bathroom also has a built-in electric toothbrush charger. The bathroom has hexagonal charcoal tiles on the floor and white brick effect tiles that surround the shower.
The principal bedroom has a decorative working fireplace and a large bay window that faces the front. The exposed floorboards, high ceilings and traditional column radiators run throughout the upstairs.
There are three further bedrooms, a generous single to the front and a large double and single to the rear. The single bedroom at the rear of the property also benefits from a restored fireplace.
“We have made the tricky decision to sell our wonderful home after renovating the whole house for the last 2 and a half years. We have thoroughly enjoyed all the hard work and we’re hoping that our passion and love for the house shines through for the next owners.
The majority of the house has been re-plastered with old lath and plaster ripped down and replaced with new. New electrics throughout and an excellent boiler still with 10 years warranty.
When we first purchased the house it was lacking it’s original character, we wanted to tastefully put these features back into each room so we have fitted all new coving and ceiling roses, restored all fireplaces and exposed, sanded and lacquered all the original floor boards.
Unlike many other houses on Abbotsbury Road, our home offers a double driveway with space for two cars. We are also lucky to have a good sized rear garden which is a sun trap. The garden was originally split across several levels and was very overgrown. We have built up a retaining wall to level it all out, and fitted a brand new contemporary fence with a heavy duty gate with a combination lock.
Abbotsbury Road is a lovely street to live on, we have great neighbours and we have always felt safe.
Town is just a stones throw from the house with the main bus station on the doorstep and the train station just 15 minutes walk away. Bakers park is just a 10 minute walk away, great for kids and dogs. Just 15 minutes in the car is the lovely village of Shaldon, where we would quite often go and sit on the beach in the evening.“
