Swinley Cottage is a unique, detached former stable house brimming with period detail and local history. Enviably positioned along Hornby Street, this is a genuine one-off property like no other. Dating back to the late 1800s, the home predates most of the other properties along the road, plus the fact that this property is detached & rests on a substantial overall plot really helps to set it apart from the competition. Internally, the condition throughout is excellent, with the property retaining much of its period detail and sensibility; so pretty coved ceilings, beautiful original doors & lovely, ornate leaded windows are all in tact.
Furthermore, our clients have spent the past 2 years significantly improving the living space by cleverly knocking through the rear and creating a stunning open plan design with a sleek, high spec fitted kitchen that should prove popular with modern buyers tastes. Trendy new herringbone flooring, redecoration throughout, plus a luxury new en-suite means that prospective buyers can simply move in and start unpacking.
In total, the living space amounts to an astonishing 2550 square feet that is set across two floors and because of the unique layout, it offers various flexible options for either running a business from home, or providing semi-independent living for relatives / guests. in brief this wonderful home comprises; a main hallway, with two large reception rooms & the exceptional fitted kitchen diner to the rear. The kitchen itself is finished with composite worktops, large breakfast bar, herringbone floor and contemporary units.
Upstairs, there are 3 / 4 bedrooms & a family bathroom - with one of the bedrooms giving access to the superb master bedroom with brand new en-suite and dressing room that boasts a feature vaulted ceiling with beautiful exposed purlins & trusses. Access from this beautiful master bedroom can also be taken down the other side of the building via a spiral staircase & into an additional reception room which would have been part of the stables years ago.
