14 Roden Avenue is an outstanding period residence and certainly one of the most imposing homes on this fine avenue. The current owners have been excellent custodians of this beautiful three-storey residence, ensuring that it has been well-cared for and upgraded in keeping with the style and age.
Amongst many of the improvements are a new roof in 2019, the renovation of a garden outbuilding, updated wiring in many parts of the house and the addition of an antique marble fireplace and installation of a wood-burning stove. The grand exterior remains very much original in appearance, retaining the delightful aesthetics of the Victorian build which are impressive to behold from all angles. The interior continues this theme with a wealth of character detail blending beautifully with modern décor and fitments.
The property is approached by a block paved driveway which can accommodate around three cars and which leads to the garage. The garage is accessed via wooden double doors to the front and has power, lighting and useful racking.
Once through the period front door one is greeted by a classic Victorian hallway complete with a beautiful stained-glass fan window, an elegant staircase, oak panelling and coving. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, a kitchen, a utility room and a downstairs cloakroom/WC.
The light and airy bay fronted sitting room has been recently refurbished and comprises French doors to the garden, two column radiators and a beautiful period marble fireplace with Welsh slate hearth housing a wood-burner. The separate dining room is spacious and full of character, comprising a column radiator, a sash window to the front, wall lights, coving and a ceiling rose. The well-appointed kitchen is an excellent space for family and entertaining and flows nicely to the garden and adjoining office/family room. Comprising matching wall and base units, a central island with maple top, maple worksurfaces, an oven and hob, an integrated dishwasher and two fridges, down lighters, tiled flooring, French doors to the garden and internal door to the adjoining reception room. The latter is a highly versatile room ideal for use as an office or family room, spacious in size and comprising two skylights, a column radiator, solid wood flooring, a glazed door to the garden and stained-glass door accessing the adjoining utility room. The utility room has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, wall units, tiled flooring and a wall-mounted ‘Worcester’ boiler. A spacious cloakroom/WC completes the ground floor accommodation and includes built-in storage, a pedestal wash hand basin, a low-level WC and the alarm panel.
On the lower ground floor there is a useful cellar room which the current owners use as an office, comprising down lighters, a radiator and built-in storage.
The first-floor landing has a sash window, stairs to the second floor and doors leading to the family bathroom and two first floor bedrooms. Bedroom one has fitted wardrobes and is also beautifully light with dual aspect windows to the front and rear with great views of the garden. Bedroom two is a spacious double room featuring an ensuite shower cubicle. The first-floor bathroom has a pedestal wash hand basin, a low-level WC, a panelled bath, an airing cupboard, a towel radiator and two sash windows.
On the second floor there are two spacious double bedrooms, both with sash windows and featuring built-in storage and wardrobes. The first-floor shower room has a pedestal wash hand basin, a low-level WC, a shower cubicle, a radiator and an extractor fan.
A fantastic feature of the property is the extensive mature family-friendly garden, neatly maintained and providing quality outside space which is very private and not overlooked. Comprising a full-width paved patio with outside lighting, this giving way to a substantial lawn extending a long way from the house and culminating in a second seating area at the far end along with two sheds. The lawn is bordered by mixed hedging and shaped beds with many mature trees and bushes throughout including cherry blossom and apple.
Adjoining the patio is a useful brick outbuilding which could be used to extend the ground floor accommodation and/or to create an annexe area in conjunction with some of the other rooms. This outbuilding is currently divided and features a gardeners’ WC and storage area with power and lighting.
We have been advised by our vendors that the property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water and broadband.
