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. In total, the living space amounts to an astonishing 2551 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.
The home has also undergone considerable change over the years, with extensions, remodelling and various improvements to the living space, resulting in a superior property that in brief comprises; a main hallway, with three large reception rooms & a fitted kitchen. Upstairs, there are 3 / 4 bedrooms & a family bathroom - with one of the bedrooms giving access to the superb master bedroom with 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. This room has a superb exposed brick wall, wooden flooring & its own access back outside into the courtyard & garden.
Externally, the home boasts a beautiful walled rear garden - a very unusual feature of period homes within the Swinley area. There is vehicular access through the former stables into a stunning cobblestone courtyard which provides ample off road parking for numerous cars. The gardens themselves are mature, well stocked & notably private & boast a lovely flagged patio area, outbuildings & access into the substantial detached garage (which is a sizeable 20ft x 15ft). The garage offers even more multi-functional uses as either storage or potential to be converted into more living space. Any clients looking for somewhere to run a business from could convert the garage & live in the property without the two encroaching on each other.
This is a genuinely unique property that is rich in local Swinley history & offers considerable value for its substantial living space. Early viewings are highly recommended. No chain delay.
