Little Langdale is a complete surprise, a detached house of considerable size, it offers outstanding contemporary accommodation and is set in an ideal location on the edge of the City, making it a perfect family home.
First impressions can be deceptive and certainly the exterior of the house gives little indication of the beautifully reconfigured and re-invented accommodation within. Careful extension to the original building has added individuality to the layout and created a property that is filled with natural light and space; has formed rooms that are versatile and generous in their proportions and makes the most of the views over the lovely garden in which the house sits
The house has a relaxed feel, furnished with an attractive, gently bohemian style, the use of solid wood floors and doors, extensive book shelving and excellent fitted storage for easy organisation, have combined to make it a calm environment and efficient house to run.
Tucked down in a small select close, the house enjoys good privacy, the entrance drive providing further parking in addition to the substantial triple garage.
From the glazed front door the entrance hall leads to the impressive Music Room. Running the depth of the house, the room looks out to both the front and rear, enjoying views towards the Cathedral spire, Lined with fitted book shelving and including a large woodburner, it forms a warm and inviting space in which to relax or entertain.
The current owners have added an outstanding, architect designed, Garden Room with built-in book shelving. Flooded with light and curving across from the rear to the front of the house it forms a tranquil space from which to enjoy the garden from both angles, with doors opening to a raised terrace and south facing, covered veranda.
From the inner hall, the ground floor accommodation also includes a cosy Sitting Room, separate Study and fully equipped Bathroom, the space offering the potential to be used in a variety of ways, including extra bedroom accommodation if required.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is fitted with a solid wood kitchen from Jones of Salisbury and includes an attractive dresser. Equipped with a gas fired Aga and companion oven, there is also a fitted dishwasher. The bay window provides an ideal spot for a seat and there is room for a central table and chairs, making it a sociable room in which to congregate or dine informally.
There is also a useful Utility Room which offers more storage and appliance space and a ground floor cloakroom.
On the first floor, the Master Bedroom is bright and calm, has a large walk-in wardrobe that offers more than enough storage and has the benefit of en suite with large shower cubicle. The room also enjoys views over the gardens and has double doors to a south facing balcony. There are three further double bedrooms, all with en suite bath/shower rooms.
