VICTORIAN - A simply remarkable, former ecclesiastical detached home adjacent to Brentwood Cathedral offering 2,750 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors with a detached double garage and parking to the rear.
The scale of this home is immediately apparent on approach, towering high with striking architectural features including the double-height bay and balcony beneath a timbered gable supported by large, scalloped brackets. A pleasing black and white tiled path leads to a brick-arched storm porch with steps to a London-style front door.
The grandeur continues throughout the home, commencing with a characterful entrance hallway with exposed brick, timbers and an ornate fireplace. This section of the home suggests an earlier age of construction, in contrast to the typically late-Victorian theme elsewhere throughout the property. A glorious lounge/parlour takes advantage of the large bay window with window seat, and features a recessed fireplace with side seating. The kitchen - complete with Aga - connects to a raised living space, providing dining and sitting areas; the ultimate in family living space and ideal for entertaining. A vaulted ceiling to the dining area is topped by a lantern roof filling the room with natural light. The kitchen features a concealed utility cupboard, designed for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a cloakroom/wc completes the ground floor accommodation.
Two staircases (leading to the same open landing) cause you to consider the history of this home and how the layout may have previously been utilised. The first floor provides a stunning master suite, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The luxurious master bedroom enjoys the upper section of the large bay window, with doors to a small balcony detail, boasting an en-suite shower room and dressing area. The second floor provides two further bedrooms, one of which features a charming small door to a hidden den or storage room. Read more
