LATE VICTORIAN - If you have driven or walked along Mount Avenue, it is likely you have admired a glimpse of Hutton Croft, one of the oldest and most magnificent properties within Hutton Mount Private Estate dating from 1886.
A home of enduring elegance and architectural prominence, Hutton Croft immediately impresses with magnificent red brickwork, contrasted by black and white gables set within a handmade clay tile roof flanked by bold chimneys. Brick mullion windows signify the character that also runs through the interior of this remarkable home, commencing with the substantial porch.
The entrance hall is simply magnificent, with stairs rising straight ahead and opening to a reception vestibule with feature fireplace. In true Victorian style, the reception areas radiate from the hallway, providing a formal lounge or dining room with large bay window, and a sitting room - also with a large bay - which is semi-open plan to the beautiful kitchen/breakfast room by Davonport.Further accommodation includes a stunning wine room with bifold doors to the swimming pool area, a utility room, and cloakroom/wc. There is also personal access to an integral garage, which is in addition to the detached double garage.
Accommodation is arranged over three substantial floors, with the first floor providing four bedrooms, including two en-suite bedrooms, both with dressing areas and both enjoying large bay windows. A family bathroom by West End Interiors of Shenfield offers pure luxury, featuring a freestanding bath and antique-mirrored wall.
The second floor - accessed by a continuation of the main staircase - offers a large open plan space, ideal as a home office, but could also be utilised as a cinema room, additional bedroom, or a superb 'sleepover' spot! The landing features an ornate and most impressive carved arch, providing another reminder of this home's history. A double bedroom and recently installed shower room complete the second floor.
