Voluptuous Villa

by Stephanie Bell

Space and splendour sum up this superb semi which dates back to around 1900.

Montana Villa exudes period charm while also boasting the most beautiful modern extension and sits on an elevated mature site commanding views across the city.

The accommodation is set over three floors and consists of six bedrooms, four plus reception rooms, a conservatory, kitchen and double garage.

The cavernous ground floor features a delightful drawing room, bay fronted living room with archway to a family room, a conservatory, a rear lobby with a WC, cloakroom, butler's pantry and a stunning locally hand crafted kitchen which opens to a dining and living area.

Three bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom with separate walk-in shower cubicle are to be found on the first floor while the second floor houses a further three bedrooms and a shower room.

Outside a driveway sweeps to a double garage round a large front lawn with rose borders, mature hedges and trees.

At the back of the property is a large attractive garden in lawn, with two patio areas, a greenhouse and garden shed.

Cornice ceilings greet you in the hallway and through into the drawing room which boasts the original fireplace with slate hearth and mahogany mantle and sliding sash windows.

Another inviting room bursting with character is the cosy living room with bay windows.

A feature archway from here leads to a delightful family room where bespoke bookcases make a feature along one wall and another original fireplace adds character.

By contrast the conservatory adds a modern touch and an opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous outdoor space as it extends into the back garden.

The butler's pantry is as quaint as they come with an Oceano porcelain tiled floor and fitted units.

The house more than impresses to this point but once you step into the designer kitchen/living/dining room, you will be completely blown away by its high-end finish.

Ceiling windows flood this huge space with light from above and add a designer feel to what is a spectacular space.

Locally hand crafted bespoke units with granite effect work surfaces are fitted with an integrated fridge, microwave, double oven, AEG four ring halogen touchscreen hob and dishwasher.

There is a superb island unit with breakfast bar and integrated wine cooler, and the whole space is finished off with porcelain tiling.

Double doors open from the lounging area into the garden and the dining area is defined with attractive shelving.

Upstairs continues to impress with many period features including sash and bay windows and fireplaces in the bedrooms, some of which have built in furniture.

The bathrooms are all high spec with luxury touches including vanity units, heated towel rails and designer tiling.
