If you’re looking for a beautiful character home with a south-facing garden and river views, then Chessel Avenue could be the home for you. Built in the mid 1920s this detached house sits on arguably one of the best plots in Bitterne. Accommodation includes three large double bedrooms, two generous receptions rooms, a modern kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and downstairs cloakroom, with character features throughout.
Walking through the leaded stain glass front door, you enter a spacious hallway with doors to the principal rooms, downstairs cloakroom and a returning staircase leading to the first floor. A feature window to the side of the house floods both the hallway and landing with natural light.
The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed, including the central island finished in white quartz and a fitted breakfast bar, ideal for morning coffee and breakfast with the family. The double-glazed patio doors and window gives views over the beautifully maintained and tendered garden. A side door in the kitchen leads through into the small utility room, leading into the garage.
The bay fronted sitting room is located to the front of the house and has been recently redecorated, including a wonderful solid fuel burner. Across the hallway is a sunny aspect dining room of generous size and can easily accommodate a large family dining table and chairs. This room also has a feature bay window with views over the garden.
The landing provides access to all of the bedrooms, the family bathroom and the loft access hatch. The front double bedroom has a large bay window and plenty of space for a bedroom furniture suite. Each of the bedrooms to the rear of the house are not only spacious but also have the most spectacular views of the river Itchen and Chessel Bay. The family bathroom has been refitted with a three-piece contemporary style suite featuring a “waterfall” showerhead and jacuzzi bath.
The front garden is enclosed by a brick and flint style wall, with a lawn and flowered border. A driveway provides off-road parking and access to the garage. NOTE: The garage will not fit a car as the garage’s back was extended into to provide space for the utility room. A door to the rear of the garage allows access to the garden.
The rear garden is beautifully maintained and has been landscaped in the last couple of years with a modern patio area and a re-turfed lawn. The borders are awash with many flowers, shrubs, and trees that are tendered all year round by the current owners. Another benefit to the rear garden is the privacy level as each of the neighbouring properties is bungalows with no high-level windows.
