A superbly extended five bedroom townhouse in a highly sought after location.
During their ownership the vendors have undertaken a huge renovation project extending and upgrading this property, which now offers almost 2,300 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. This includes extending and reconfiguring to the rear to create a huge kitchen/living area with a new bespoke kitchen with Siemens integrated appliances enjoying fantastic views out over Hoopern Valley and across to the University, with bi-fold doors to a decked terrace and garden beyond. The owners have also fitted Smart grey aluminium double glazing including a large picture window to the rear of the kitchen, installed underfloor heating throughout the ground floor topped with engineered oak flooring and fitted a Sonos sound system. There is also now high speed 80mb broadband, an alarm and CCTV both front and back. The top floor has been reconfigured to create a fantastic office with electric blinds and an open en suite double bedroom with Juliet balcony. New bathrooms have been installed and bespoke fitted wardrobes and cupboards. The house has been redecorated throughout. Eco-friendly aspects have been carefully considered and the owners have installed a rainwater harvester for toilet flushing and solar thermal panels, which produce £100 per quarter from Ofgem as well as providing most of the hot water. The end result is a spacious and stylish five bedroom family home with very high specification fittings.
The property is approached over a low maintenance paved front garden enclosed by low level walling. Across from the front of the house is a further private garden with a honeycomb driveway leading to a newly built wooden double garage block flanked by raised beds, fruit trees and borders, all protected by CCTV. There is ample parking on the drive and a further area of fruit beds behind the garage. There are solar panels on the garage roof providing electricity. There is also a share in the Velwell Road communal tennis court for residents use. The low-maintenance walled garden to the rear of the house has an easy turf area of level lawn bordered by well stocked flowerbeds with a pedestrian gate to the Hoopern Valley and features a raised split level decked terrace with fantastic views over the valley and across to the University.
44 Velwell Road is situated in a quiet sought after residential street behind Bury Meadow Park, within easy reach of the City Centre. Velwell Road and the surrounding streets are set in a Conservation area and have a very active community, sharing use of the tennis court (the property has it's own share) and organising events.
