Braemar, a striking and spacious home situated in a sought-after location, blends original features from the inter-war era with a contemporary twist.

Modern upgrades to the house, which is in a quiet cul-de-sac, include a loft conversion and superb open-plan dining kitchen with adjacent family room.

Approaching Braemar along the front driveway, the eye is taken by the stained-glass details around the entrance, with round coloured stained-glass windows to the side of the door and in it with coloured fanlight above and stained-glass tops to the bay windows.

Period details continue inside with the spindled staircase having a maghogany newel post and a sitting room boasting a 1930s-style mahogany wood fire surround housing multi-fuel burning stove, a bay window to front elevation, picture rail and ceiling coving.

By contrast, the kitchen is a contemporary open-plan area with cream-coloured cabinets, contrasting granite work surfaces and ceramic wall tiling, a freestanding range-style cooker, dishwasher and central island with solid oak work surface.

The kitchen is open-plan to a dining area with the original recess storage cupboard and an inglenook fireplace and from here the space opens to the family/garden room .

A utility room has wall and floor units and plumbing and also provides access to the garage at the top of the drive and a second door to outside.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms off the first-floor landing - two doubles with wardrobes and storage, and a single - plus a second staircase to the loft conversion.

The luxurious family bathroom on the first floor has a freestanding bath with central waterfall mixer taps, walk-in shower, basin with waterfall mixer tap and contrasting stone effect wall and floor tiling.

On the top floor the original space has been converted to a fourth bedroom with two roof windows and eaves storage. It has the benefit of an en-suite with another skylight.

Outside the property the well-stocked front garden has mature borders and shrubs/ The garage has a wc, light, power and a water supply and the south-facing back garden is ready for a new owner to put their stamp on it.
