A comprehensively modernised, refurbished and extended detached Edwardian house with a large garden, pleasantly situated in the convenient and popular village of Alderbury.
Overton House is a quite exceptional detached house which was constructed in the early 20th Century. It has recently been comprehensively refrubished and modernised and the accommodation has been enlarged with the consequence that it now combines the character of an Edwardian house with all the advantages of a new one. The work has been undertaken to unusually high and exacting standards and this has included re-roofing, re-wiring and re-plumbing, the installation of new windows, the fitting of new kitchen, complete redecoration and replacement of the sanitary ware, the re-configuration of some of the accommodation and the construction of a new double garage.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall with a new staircase to the first floor and wood effect flooring. To the left there is an attractive double aspect sitting room with an original cast iron fireplace with timber surround, whilst to the right there is a snug with a fire recess. Directly ahead there is a most attractive kitchen and dining room which also provides a particularly light, airy and spacious living area.
There are extensive base and wall units of cupboards and drawers and integrated appliances include an AEG oven, microwave, dishwasher, and induction 5 ring hob with extractor hood above with fan and light. There is also space for an American style fridge freezer. There is a central island which provides extensive worksurface and a breakfast bar with cupboards beneath. There are also two storage cupboards and French doors with glazed side panels that open onto a the large paved terrace and garden.
To the side of the kitchen there is a useful utility room with a stainless steel sink unit with cupboard beneath and adjoining worksurface. There is also a wall mounted boiler cupboard with a new Worcester gas fired boiler which provides the hot water (pressurised system) and serves the radiators.
There is also a door to a covered rear porch which has a store which leads out to the garden. Off the utility there is a cloakroom with a WC and wash hand basin with vanity drawers beneath.
On the first floor there is a principal bedroom which has an original cast iron fireplace and an en-suite shower room which incorporates a cubicle with watering can and hand held shower heads, wash hand basin with a vanity shelf beneath and a W.C. There are three further double bedrooms and a bathroom with a new white suite with a bath which has a mixer tap and shower attachment, W.C and wash hand basin with vanity drawers beneath and a towel warmer.
