A six bedroom townhouse with a stunning architect-designed extension.

1 Marshall Road is an appealing bay-fronted Victorian terraced property, sensitively-extended to the rear aspect to provide over 3,700 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The property cleverly combines the amenities of modern living with original character features including some stained glazing to the front aspect, high ceilings and some cast iron radiators, the whole combining to create a truly stunning family and entertaining space. The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming wooden-floored reception hall and briefly comprises a large dual aspect drawing room with front aspect bay window and feature fireplace with woodburning stove, a well-proportioned front aspect library with bay window and fitted shelving and a generous study with French doors to the garden. The ground floor accommodation is completed by an extensive L-shaped open plan kitchen/ dining/sitting room with a useful neighbouring fitted utility room and a ground floor double bedroom with modern en suite shower room. The kitchen has a range of contemporary wall and floor units with a large central island with breakfast bar, marble worktops, a four oven Aga and modern integrated appliances. The kitchen opens to one side into a spacious dining room with a large sky lantern and bi-fold doors to the garden and to the other into a generous sitting room with a feature wall-mounted woodburner and bi-fold doors to the garden. Accessible over a dedicated staircase from the kitchen, the first floor master suite comprises a large bedroom with vaulted ceiling, a fitted dressing room and a spacious en suite bathroom with freestanding bath and separate walkin shower. The reception hall staircase leads to a large landing and to the property’s four remaining bedrooms, two with feature front aspect bay windows, together with a good-sized family bathroom.

Outside

The property is approached over a lowmaintenance paved front garden with low-level walling and an original tiled pedestrian path to the front door. Double gates lead to an off-road area of private parking with a pedestrian gate to the garden. The enclosed garden to the side and rear offers a large paved courtyard, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, bordered by an area of level lawn with mature evergreen flowerbeds and topiary and an additional seating area with gazebo.

Situation

Marshall Road lies to the south side of the city in close proximity to the shopping facilities on Hills Road and Mill Road, a cosmopolitan and popular area at the heart of everything the city has to offer.
