***PERIOD FAMILY HOME * STEEPED IN HISTORY * POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUTBUILDING * NO ONWARD CHAIN *** 'Dilkoosha' is a stunning six bedroom Victorian end terrace property which retains many of its period features, including high ceilings, original fireplaces, quarry tiled floors, traditional bay windows with sliding sashes, and original Victorian mouldings. A property which is steeped in history and romance, was built circa 1884 by the Gascoigne family of Lotherton Hall. The current owners have expertly created a fusion of period features and contemporary touches throughout, which allows the property to remain sympathetic to the era, but with a contemporary twist. The result is a beautiful and spacious home spread out over three floors, blending traditional with modern, and providing versatile living. The programme of work carried out by the current owners include removal of internal walls to create open living space, installation of a 'Worcester' combination boiler, recently installed multi-fuel burner, replacement kitchen, installation of 'Bose' built-in sound system and redecoration. Entering the home through the front door into the entrance hall with original decorative 'quarry' tiled floor and romantic stained glass window depicting two love birds. The hallway leads to an open-plan sociable space with stunning kitchen/dining room with original range and recently installed multi-fuel burner. The kitchen/dining room opens into a welcoming lounge with original fireplace, parquet flooring and a central cast-iron fireplace. There is a separate lounge which boasts solid wood flooring and a beautiful bay sash window. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a generously sized playroom, which could also be utilised as a dining room. The playroom also benefits from a stunning open fire place with marble mantle and decorative tiled surround and external door to the rear garden.
