Property SummarySet in beautifully-maintained grounds, this property on the sought-after south coast quietly blends traditional and modern with stylish features throughout.
With a garage incorporating an office extension, a conservatory and a well-appointed kitchen, we would advise potential buyers to act swiftly to avoid disappointment.
On the north side of the city and within the university quarter, Elmsleigh Gardens is a residential street comprising mostly detached homes within easy reach of both Southampton Common and the M27. Amenities close by include a Shell filling station with its own convenience store as well as a host of shops, cafes, takeaways, banks and businesses serving the student community along Burgess Road.
For those interested in education below graduate level, Cantell School and Bassett Green Primary are both within walking distance while public transport links include regular buses from Burgess Road. Services link with Highfield, the city centre and the General Hospital as well as Swaythling just over 2kms away, from where trains connect with Salisbury, Romsey, Winchester and London Waterloo the latter just over a 90-minute ride away.
For those travelling further afield, Southampton Airport is just over two miles from the house with FlyBE offering connections to other UK airports as well as destinations in France, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Germany, the Channel Islands, Italy and Ireland.
The house is set back from the road and is fronted by a lawn to the left, with established shrubs and trees offering some screening. A block-paved drive leads to double timber gates and offers off-road parking for two vehicles, while a path leads from the driveway to the covered front door.
Through the timber gates, the drive continues between the house and high timber fence panels to the detached single garage, fitted with an up-and-over door and a pitched roof. A door to the separate outhouse can be found to the left as well as access to the beautifully-maintained private, enclosed rear garden which is overlooked by a comfortable and modern office extension attached to the rear of the garage.
Here, a well-kept lawn is surrounded by shrubs and trees as well as stone-edged flower beds, while some shade is offered by a mature tree with a covered wooden seating area beneath.
The mullion-style front door - with stained-glass panels fitted within the porch on either side - opens onto a carpeted reception hall with stairs to the right rising to the first floor, with a storage cupboard located beneath. Solid-pine internal doors with glass panels open onto the lounge and the dining room to the left and onto the kitchen ahead.
A large bay window to the front of the house lets plenty of light flood the living room, which is carpeted and tastefully decorated in pale colours. However, the stand-out feature is perhaps the feature fireplace with brick surround and black-slate hearth, fitted with an authentic cast-iron log burner. The fireplace and the décor is repeated in the adjoining dining room albeit without the log burner where double sliding doors lead on to the conservatory and access to decking via double doors flanked by half-height windows, which also allow plenty of light.
The modern kitchen boasts a Rangemaster cooker with a double oven and a five-ring gas hob. A deep, ceramic Belfast sink sits beneath the window which overlooks the rear garden. The base and wall units in cream above and below solid-wood worktops add a contemporary feel, as well as space and plumbing for a dishwasher, a washing machine and a tumble drier. In addition to a food pantry there is room too for an upright fridge/freezer while overhead lighting is provided by modern adjustable spotlights.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing where internal doors open onto three bedrooms and the bathroom. All of the bedrooms are fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators, the master incorporating two double wardrobes with solid-pine doors with opaque glass panels. Both the second double bedroom and the single bedroom overlook the delightful rear garden.
The house bathroom has a slate-effect floor and mosaic-style tiled walls and includes a quadrant cubicle fitted with a modern, integral shower; a stand-alone corner bath with chrome shower attachment; a pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps; and a WC with dual flush beneath a mirrored medicine cabinet.
