This extraordinary home has a wonderful sense of history which is immediately apparent within the grand Edwardian scale and historical features. Thought to have been originally built for the managers of the former Co-op factory which once upon a time sat opposite, this enchanting home has been sympathetically extended to merge the existing historical proportions together with social open plan dynamics.
As you move from room to room there are little surprises to be found everywhere, where the original bones of this home peek through, from the stripped silvered woodwork and intricate cornicing to the ornate fireplaces, cast iron radiators and quirky stained glass windows.
The open plan kitchen living space has to be our favourite space, it literally knits the fabrics of this house together offering a vast, bright and modern space for the whole family to enjoy in contrast to the cosier, more enclosed original footprint.
Whilst the ground floor offers plenty of space for your family to sprawl out and grow, upstairs equally offers a great sense of space, with two great double bedrooms and two large singles and a palatially sized bathroom complete with roll-top tub to enjoy.

More than any one element, it is the sheer scale and sense of history which makes this house so distinctive with the added bonus of curating small interior touch ups to make this house your home.

Matching the scale and proportions from inside, the outside space here is utterly mesmerising. Mostly laid to lawn with established borders and shrubs, the rear garden is so big it has been sectioned into two defined areas. One to enjoy sociably and large enough to enjoy a kick about, further beyond lays a wilder area where an old tyre swing offers a glimpse into the happy past of this memorable home. The shingled driveway to the front allows space to park a few vehicles off the road too.

Franks Thoughts...

Another firm favourite for the Frank catalogue of homes we have loved, epic proportions and so many beautiful features we have found yet the more you look the more you discover. The kitchen has made a huge impact on the footprint and the little odd decorative jobs now needed has left Franks mind whirling with ideas…
