With its characterful, well proportioned and versatile accommodation, Ramleh offers a charming and unique home. On entering the property, the rich-hues of parquet flooring and the stunning oak staircase in the reception hall give a sense of the craftsmanship of the era, with the parquetry extending into the adjoining reception rooms. Two bay window recesses and French doors ensure the elegant drawing room is connected to the garden and filled with natural light, with seating centred around a feature fireplace and ample space for a dining zone. At the heart of the home, the kitchen/dining and linked family room provide a sociable setting with the adjoining utility room offering additional storage as well as incorporating a cloakroom facility. From here is access to the impressive, office space which could be used as a self contained annexe.
On the first floor, the roomy landing gives access to the five bedrooms, with three of the rooms enjoying the advantage of bay window alcoves and the principal room benefitting from an en suite shower room, which in turn links to the family bathroom. Featuring vintage fittings, including a claw-foot, free-standing roll-top tub, the bathroom is complemented by the adjacent stylishly-presented shower room.
