Owner's Comments

"Many have commented on what a lovely family home we have created here. That is, of course, down to the family, but 3 Glen Eyre Way has been a great foundation for the formation of our family"

"To sit in the garden and listen to nothing but the birds is a privilege for us being located as we are so close to the centre of the city that is Southampton"

Introduction

Constructed to a pleasing design this spacious property offers excellent accommodation and will appeal to purchasers seeking a traditional family home that is offered for sale with no forward chain. The sizeable loft space has exciting potential to be converted (STP) to provide additional accommodation that will enhance the size and stature of this fine home.

Description

The large reception hall boasts stripped floorboards and creates a favourable impression when entering this fine home and has ample space for a desk to provide a study area. Antique pine doors lead to all rooms and the original ornate staircase ascends to the first floor with the front elevation bay window emanating natural light. The lounge is generous in proportions boasting a wide bay window and is centred around the wooden mantelpiece that has a cast iron fireplace with an open hearth that is a pleasing focal point for the room. Positioned at the rear and enjoying an attractive outlook over the garden, the sitting room provides a useful additional reception room featuring a marblelite fireplace with an ornate wooden mantelpiece and open hearth. The dining room is also comfortable in size and similarly has a view of the rear garden whilst a door opens to the kitchen and a cupboard houses the boiler and hot water cylinder. Fitted with a range of maple wall and base units with complementary work surfaces that incorporate a sink unit and a mixer tap, the kitchen also has ample space for a table and chairs for informal dining. Fitted appliances include an oven/grill and a four ring gas hob with an extractor hood and a colourful tiled back. Plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer is provided. A useful dual aspect double glazed side porch allows access to the garden and a door leads to the wet room style shower that displays a modern suite with fully tiled walls.

The first floor landing has a large hatch fitted with a retractable ladder permitting access to the sizeable loft space. Of a similar size to the lounge below, the more than generous master bedroom is bathed in light from the wide bay window and has a fitted double wardrobe with cupboards above. A door leads to a further room that could be utilised as a dressing area or nursery and is linked to the adjacent bathroom therefore creating an impressive master suite. Bedroom two features a bay window overlooking the rear garden and also has a shelved linen cupboard. Bedroom three similarly enjoys views over the rear garden and has a fitted single wardrobe with a cupboard above. Bedroom four has views over the street and bedroom five enjoys a rear aspect and a contemporary styled bowl set in a wooden wash stand. The family bathroom is well appointed with a modern white suite comprising a bath with a glass screen and shower unit, close coupled WC, a wash hand basin and a tiled floor.

Outside

The front garden is predominantly gravelled to allow off road parking for several vehicles and mature hedging creates natural privacy. A pedestrian gate and paved area with a garden shed and an outside tap are found to the right of the house. The integral garage houses the utility area with a work surface and a single drainer sink unit, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier with a sliding double glazed patio door allowing side access.

Boasting a delightful leafy outlook the rear garden is laid to lawn with a host of mature shrubs and trees providing an established and attractive vista together with a good degree of natural privacy. A paved patio provides the perfect setting for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days and a shed is found on the right boundary.

Location

Bassett is a highly sought after residential area due to the close proximity of The University campus that provides numerous facilities including The Jubilee sports complex that has an indoor swimming pool. The Turner Sims concert hall and popular Nuffield Theatre are also found nearby that host a varied programme of cultural events. The Common, Sports Centre and City Golf Course are within a short distance and provide excellent recreational open space. Access to the M27/M3 motorway network is close by and The Parkway railway station provides a fast route to Waterloo. Local shops are found in Winchester Road whilst the city centre is only two miles distant boasting major high street facilities and the West Quay shopping mall and cinema restaurant complex.
