Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
An internal viewing of this extremely unique and versatile house is highly recommended; the property is much more appealing and adaptable than can be portrayed on paper . Providing a total of 3 (possibly 4) bedrooms including the option of a self-contained annexe at ground floor level, also featuring 2 garden areas, 2 kitchens, 2 spacious living rooms, garaging and parking a total of just under 2,000 sq ft of accommodation in a convenient and quiet position within Kernick Park a popular development of individual homes.

THE PROPERTY

The Bell House , in its original form, is a period house likely to be built in the Victorian era, full of character with many original features including flagstone flooring, large fireplaces and formal reception rooms. In more recent years, the property has been dramatically extended to provide an additional two bedrooms and two shower rooms, with a spacious self-contained annexe benefiting from its own garden area. Each section of the property has its own gas fired central heating system, but should one prefer to incorporate into one dwelling, little needs to be done, other than personal preferences and updating of some areas, as required. For example, the kitchen area of the annexe could be refitted into a superb en-suite for a fourth bedroom, which is currently the annexe living room. The house already features majority double glazing and plenty of storage within the garage and over-head storage area.

THE LOCATION

Kernick Park is a 'little-known' development of individual houses of varying size and age, tucked away in tree-lined and stone walled surroundings off Kernick Road, close to the western outskirts of the town, hidden from the outside world, yet within walking distance of the university campus, secondary and junior schooling, superstore, town centre and excellent public transport facilities.
