Ground Floor & Garden

The front garden, behind a traditional palisade fence with four finial-topped brick piers, is partly paved with york stone, part brick and part tiled. It is planted with climbers, evergreens and shrubs. The side drive can accommodate at least two cars. Queen Anne’s Grove is a quiet, tree-lined road with very little traffic.

The double area hall has original glazing in the front door and in two windows. There is a guest cloakroom and cupboard under the stairs.

The 3 large inter-communicating reception rooms, all 11' (3.35m) high, have the original cornices and, from two of the rooms, french doors to the patio and garden. The original wooden floors throughout have been sanded, sealed and bleached. There are two fireplaces - one for an open fire, one with the original surround which has a gas-coal fire and a french enamel Godin stove in the third.

The kitchen has white marble surfaces and old pine cupboards, a tiled floor and a pretty west-facing window onto the garden.

A small pantry leads to the utility/garage with a french door to the garden, a tiled floor, teak tops, plenty of cupboards and wine storage.

The west-facing rear garden has a tiled, sunny patio with a magnolia grandiflora and french doors from 2 reception rooms. The garden is well stocked with mature evergreens, shrubs, and perrenials. There is a small greenhouse, a timber- framed workshop and a very popular bird bath.
