Lynnwood is a fine example of early Victorian architecture which has been sympathetically renovated, refurbished and extended to produce a 6 bedroom property over three floors with a wine cellar and workshop in the basement level. With a tandem garage and spacious well tendered gardens that offer sunshine throughout the majority of the day, the property comes to the market with no upward chain.
Lawrence Road is a desirable location of high end period properties with a tree lined view and fabulous architecture.
Lynnwood is a fine example of the residential homes that rarely come available in this sought after neighbourhood.
Immediately upon arrival on to the tarmacadam driveway which could be further extended to create a turning circle if so desired, you arrive in front of the tandem garage. The residents have considered connecting the side elevation to the garage though an extension or covered car port ensuring further scope to enhance, (STPP) is a distinct possibility. The quality of craftsmanship and considered care and attention given to both the exterior and interior is self-evident from the outset.
The entrance hall with high ceilings, traditional coving and Oak doors also includes a superb oak and chrome spindle balustrade with half turn staircase leading to the first floor.
Three reception rooms reside to the first floor with formal dining room and serving hatch to the left and incredibly spacious sitting room and garden room to the right. The design and interior flair poured into the garden room is within first-class keeping of the overall aesthetic and character of the home. With pitched roof and L-shaped dimensions, double doors alight into the grounds with seamless connectivity. A set of internal glass doors close the garden room off from the sitting room for secluded intimacy but opened up, they provide a wonderful open plan aspect appreciated by the modern buyer.
The breakfast kitchen next door to the utility room appreciates Oak bespoke cabinets and a 6 gas hob range oven, Aga cooker hob, Miele dishwasher and Liebhaur fridge. With granite work top and 11/2 stainless steel sink and drainer, the room is completed with a traditional ceramic floor. The utility room helps to keep laundry duties away from the kitchen and is equipped with plentiful storage, cloaks and boot provisions, plumbing for a washer and space for a dryer. A door leads toward the tandem garage which again provides plentiful storage space and electical provisions for further white goods.
The first floor has four bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities and a superior shower room. Fusing appreciative modern technologies with traditional character, the owners have replumbed, rewired and reconfigured to provide a highly contemporary double shower with Mira Dual Platinum wireless remote controller for use with their Mira Platinum Dual digital shower mixer. Added to this, porcelain tiled flooring, wall hung wash basin, back to wall w.c and bath with side taps, the bathroom is clearly state of the art.
The second floor includes a very large bedroom (thought originally to be servants quarters) and a single bedroom. This bedroom could be converted into ensuite facilities (STPP) allowing the entire floor to be an opulent master suite.
The basement holds the Hortsmann thermostatic wireless controls for the zoned heating, providing the opportunity to control your heating remotely, Lynnwood can be warmed before your arrival home. The service boiler room, work shop and wine cellar complete the arrangement internally. Further scope to extend could be achieved under the formal dining room, again all subject to ususal constraints.
Externally the property is equally maintained to an exceptional standard, repointed and sitting in lovingly produced gardens that include a Gazebo which catches the late afternoon/evening sunshine and a timber shed for tool storage. The wealth and diverse range of established bushes and plants provide a fantastic colourful arena to enjoy the surroundings whilst dining and entertaining.
