You get more than you might think with this 1930s five bedroom art deco property in Southampton, Hampshire.
Sat in over a quarter of an acre of land, the house also comes with access to the residents gardens, which include 3.5 acres of open gardens, mainly lawn and streams, along with some allotments plus more formal residents gardens with a number of hard and grass tennis courts, a croquet lawn, a small orchard and a summer pavilion. Yes, all of that is part-owned by you if you buy this.
The house itself looks part renovated, which is likely to be appreciated if you want some originality. The living room and hallways certainly look largely unchanged, as does the profile of the property. But overall, this looks like the kind of place you can move into, tweaking the rooms to your own taste.
Talking of rooms, an entrance hall with wood block flooring and double doors takes you to the reception hall with the same flooring, a cloakroom, a triple aspect lounge with open fireplace and wood mantle, a dining room with feature stone open fireplace and built-in dresser unit and a breakfast room with two walk-in larders. A rear lobby with storage area then take you to the fitted kitchen and a shower room.
Head upstairs to a first floor landing, which in turn goes to the a triple aspect bedroom with pedestal wash hand basin, bidet, coving and radiator, three further bedrooms with hand wash basins and a fifth bedroom with built-in wardrobes. There’s also a box room, a family bathroom and a separate WC.
Aside from all that communal space, you also get a front garden with lawned area, flower and shrub beds and driveway giving access to the garage/car port. The rear garden has lawns, mature flower and shrub beds, ornamental fish pond, three sheds, summer house, green house, mature trees and fruit trees, patio area, brick built bbq and crazy paved pathways.
If you like the sound of that, the price is £695,000.
