SOLD !

GLENTHORNE ROAD, KINGSTON. KT1

Ivy Gate are proud to have sold this truly beautiful three double-bedroom, detached Victorian home presented in excellent condition throughout. The property comprises an entrance hallway to two generous living rooms with feature fireplaces and direct access to the garden via French doors. The top floor comprises three double bedrooms, separate family bathroom and loft access.

Entering the property through the stunning stained-glass front door, directly to your left is the front living room with original wooden flooring (which also runs throughout the ground floor), original cornicing and a wood burner in the fireplace, which adds a warm and elegant focal point to this family home. The second living room can also be used as a dining room, and features a Victorian fireplace and French doors leading to the garden. To the rear of the property is a modern, extended, eat-in kitchen finished to a high standard. The kitchen combines traditional wood flooring in the dining area with more durable ceramic slate tiles in the cooking area. To the very back of the kitchen is a generous storage area and separate w/c. The well-maintained garden has a selection of mature shrubs and plants to provide interest throughout the year. It has plenty of sunlight during the day, while still providing shaded areas. It has good garden and tool storage facilities, as well as a separate bike store.

The first floor is an excellent space for easy family living. All three bedrooms are double bedrooms, which is very unusual for this style of property. There is also a separate, modern family bathroom, as well as direct ladder access to the loft, which is both boarded and insulated.

Planning permission has been granted for a ‘piggy-back’ loft extension, which has the potential of turning this house into a 5-bedroom property.

Glenthorne Road is a sought-after residential road, suitable for a number of different buyer profiles, from those looking to purchase their first home, to growing families seeking a quiet location in close proximity to excellent local schools. The road also provides easy access to Kingston town centre with its vibrant shops, bars and restaurants and the River Thames. Importantly, it also offers the choice of either Kingston or Surbiton train stations within walking distance.
