Detached House Under Offer
Welcome To Looe Villa, Whitworth Road!
This is stunning period four bedroom detached house with a garage. Located in the highly sought after Bitterne Park area. A location that is super convenient, walking distance to Bitterne Triangle where you have an array of shops, takeaways and the very popular Butchers Hook Ale House. Bitterne Precinct is also just up the road where you can find Sainsburys, Iceland and Superdrug to name a few, that’s the local shopping ticked off. How about fitness fanatics? Pure Gym is conveniently close by and offers 24/7 access. Marco Harris highly recommends a trip to ‘What a Pizza’ a truck that is offering up some of Southampton’s finest wood fired cooked Pizza and as it walking distance away it would be rude not to. Parents you’ll be pleased to know that the school catchment is Bitterne Manor Primary & Bitterne Park Secondary. If some active family time is on the agenda, then Bitterne Leisure Centre is only 1 mile from the property. Scenic walk? Head over to Riverside Park for a stroll down the River Itchen. This really is a superb location offering something for everyone.
The property dates back to 1985/90 and is thought to have been built for a merchant seaman. The original features and character are sensational and have been carefully looked after over the years. The current owners have been in situ since 2003 and have thoroughly enjoyed making memories in this home. The property from the kerb is very attractive with its double front bay, small court yard front garden and impressive white lintels. Upon entry you are instantly hit with a homely feel and the charming character begins with original parquet flooring, stunning architrave and high ceilings. At the front you'll find the cosy living room yet spacious finished beautifully with an open working fire place and bespoke storage either side of the chimney breast. The dining room is next off the hall and is ideal for hosting family dinners. This space also benefits from a side bay which provides added natural light. Under the stairs there is plenty of storage and opposite is the downstairs toilet with original stained-glass window. The second reception has original wooden floors and is the ultimate chill out zone. That’s a total of three receptions rooms all a fantastic size and it doesn’t stop there. Our favourite room in the house is the kitchen diner that is open plan to a 4x4m conservatory. The kitchen was only fitted in 2019 and is finished in style yet in keeping with its period character the airer in the kitchen is believed to be original. Integral appliances include a fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher all of which are AEG. A double AEG oven will be the perfect match for a keen cook and is matching with the gas hob. The breakfast bar perfectly separates the two spaces and the conservatory is simply gorgeous with views over the rear garden.
The garden deserves its own paragraph. Its unique, mature, spacious and the most amazing entertaining space for summer BBQ’s. The most spectacular thing is that it wraps around at the end which has the most private sun trap currently a grow your own section. The summer house will stay and if that’s not enough how about an air raid shelter that goes under ground with lighting.
Upstairs continues to impress with a split-level landing and four well-proportioned bedrooms all with their own unique identity. The principal bedroom is located at the front and benefits from the bay as well as the additional width making this room an impressive 3.7 x 3.6m. The main family bathroom has a shower cubicle and a free-standing roll top bath tub, the luxurious feel to this room is finished again with an original stained-glass window.
