O’Connor Estate Agents welcome 25 Millmount Avenue, originally built for the workers of the Lemon Factory in the early 1900’s, it now presents as an attractive period style 3 bedroom family residence that has a large meticulously designed two storey extension and attic conversion (adding c.16.sq.m) which could be used as an additional bedroom or study with ensuite. Prospective purchasers will also benefit from permission that has been granted for a studio/gym over the garden store to the rear and these plans are available upon request.
The current owners acquired this home in 2003 and set about the refurbishment with luxurious family living and creative accommodation in mind. No expense has been spared and the home has been lavished with high quality fixtures & fittings and included re-wiring, re-plumbing, insulation to the front & rear and a new natural slate pitched roof. The new contemporary design compliments the original facade & many retaining features and there was an emphasis on providing an abundance of light. This home of distinction has charm & character which is immediately evident throughout.
The downstairs accommodation comprises an inviting grand hallway with high ceilings and to the left is the living area with solid fuel cast iron fireplace as the main focal point. As you continue further down the hallway there is a downstairs WC and to the left is the entrance to the exquisite kitchen area with Stanley cooker that provides a built in zoned heating system and separate utility. The rest of the downstairs accommodation is completed with a much desired open plan area suitable for entertainment purposes. This open plan area is complimented with a glazed roof light area and sliding doors for access to the cleverly designed tiered rear garden which has a granite & artificial grass finish suitable for al fresco dining with rear access leading out onto Millbourne Avenue.
The upstairs accommodation comprises 2 bedrooms to the front of the residence with sanded & varnished original wooden floors. The wide landing area with Sky tube has the original staircase with French polished handrails and exudes a feature LED light area where the original rear window was positioned offering a sense of warmth on this level. The bathroom boasts a shower area with polished concrete effect tiles, heated towel rail and Laufen WHB. The first floor extension area completes the accommodation with a master bedroom with recessed lighting, walk in wardrobe with velux window and ensuite with Jacuzzi bath and high quality sanitary ware. The attic has been converted with a Scandinavian pine window and features an impressive exposed brick chimney arch on the stairwell.
