Full Details

Located in the heart of Alton, the property looks out onto the High Street with its charming mix of traditional buildings, well renowned as being one of the prettiest villages in this part of Staffordshire. Situated above the Churnet Valley, the village is surrounded by rolling countryside providing ample opportunities to explore the local area. There is on street parking directly in front of the property, from where steps rise to the front garden.

This beautiful three-bedroom family home is presented in immaculate condition throughout, having been the subject of a thorough renovation by the current owners. The attention to detail is immediately apparent with a beautiful solid oak stair case, hand-made doors, matching casings and skirting boards. The property is packed with beautiful period features, typical of the Edwardian period with high ceilings, large windows and striking fireplaces.

The entrance hall retains the original quarry tiled flooring with solid oak staircase rising to the first floor. There are three generously sized reception rooms on the ground floor, a sitting room at the front overlooking the High Street, a drawing room to the rear, opening out to the rear patio through French doors and a dining room, also with a door leading out to the rear garden.

Beyond the dining room is a very smartly appointed kitchen with a six ring Rangemaster stove, integrated appliances that include a dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer with a solid oak work surface.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, the master having a beautifully appointed en-suite shower room, the remaining two bedrooms being served by a very smart bathroom with free standing bath, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Externally the rear garden has been beautifully landscaped with several areas of Indian stone terracing and mature, well stocked borders. The garden at the rear is bounded by sandstone walling, affording a good deal of security and privacy. The front garden is elevated from the High Street and bounded by iron railings and gates with steps rising to the front door.
