A superbly presented five bedroom extended semi-detached house in the very tranquil setting of Flora Grove providing easy access to the main rail station (with its 20 minutes link into London St Pancras) and to the city centre with its multiple shopping and entertainment facilities. Located on a well-proportioned plot and arranged over three floors the property offers extensive accommodation and comprises separate lounge, spacious fully fitted kitchen with a large open plan reception / entertainment area, five double bedrooms, one family bathroom and two en-suites. The garden is very well-presented and benefits from a south-westerly aspect facilitating maximum sunlight through the day and early evening. Without doubt a beautiful home with ample space for a large family, study and entertaining guests.
Lounge (16ft 6ins x 12ft 5ins)
A large and welcoming lounge area decorated with beige carpet, neutral decor throughout aside from a tasteful feature wall. This is a bright and airy room due to a large double glazed leaded light window overlooking the front of the property accompanied by a curtain rail and curtains. A real feature here is the fire place with wooden surround, a tiled hearth and an electric wood-burner style fire. There are two wall mounted candle effect light fittings together with silver candelabra, multiple silver plug sockets and a twin dimmer light switch, wall mounted radiator and a motion sensor.
Reception / entertainment area (19ft 3ins x 15ft 10ins)
A major attraction of the house is this particularly impressive large open-plan reception area with kitchen, which is a real focal point for the family and/or entertaining guests! With neutral decor throughout and wood flooring, the entire area is very light and airy with volumes of natural light flooding in through two Velux windows and large patio doors which overlook the very attractive rear garden. There is a feature brick fireplace with black tiling to the hearth, six-spoke silver light fitting, three spotlights, four wall mounted glass light fittings, multiple plug sockets, radiator and motion sensor.

Garden (68ft x30ft)
A south westerly aspect ensures this outdoor space is bathed in natural sunlight (when available!) throughout the day. The patio can be accessed directly from the dining area – a perfect spot for a barbecue. The garden is largely laid to lawn with an array of attractive bushes and plants to each side. Trees to the rear of the garden provide a perfect screen for added privacy. There is the additional benefit of two sheds suppling plenty of storage.
