The property market is still the land of opportunity for those wanting a home just a little different from the norm.
A fine example is a property in Hulbert Road, Bedhampton.
Set back behind tall wrought iron gates and a large brick paviour driveway and parking area, the house might seem perfect for car or motorcycle enthusiasts, especially with its triple garage and workshop to one side.
On the other hand, families who want hobby space will also find it ideal – and there’s plenty of room inside the house, which has that appealing 1930s double-height bay crowned by a gable and with mock Tudor decoration for good measure.
Distinctive is certainly an apt description! The house itself is pretty impressive on the inside. There are separate dining and sitting rooms and a kitchen / breakfast room with integrated appliances to make life easy.
The first floor galleried landing has doors to three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room that complements the family bathroom which boasts a spa bath for relaxing, bubble-filled soaks.
There are stairs to the second floor with three skylight windows and a rear dormer, plus access to eaves storage.
At the rear of the house is a large paved terrace running back the full length of the garage to a central circular area and accessed via French windows from both the dining room and the garage.
The patio then continues to a raised area at the rear of the 80ft garden.
‘This really is a house for families who want plenty of activity space and it offers very welcoming accommodation,’ says Colin Shairp of Town and Country Southern estate agents.
‘There is no onward chain, potentially making the moving process that much simpler.’
