This striking home offers spacious accommodation and regal class, writes Sammy Milton
It’s a rare occasion when a property this unique and stunning comes to market – and when it does you do not want to miss out. For those looking for a very special home indeed, feast your eyes on Naseby House, standing proudly in its position on the popular Pembroke Road, ready to welcome you in with open arms.
Set within an unusually large plot of around a third of an acre, the property benefits from a gated entrance and a generous driveway that provides parking for a number of cars. Entering through to the ground floor, a vast array of striking period features greets you at the door – a Victorian tiled floor, ceiling cornicing and high ceilings, and much more. The huge dining room is located to the front of the property and is full of natural light. Featuring a beautiful period fireplace with a wood-burning stove, this room oozes style and cosy comfort.
A decadent drawing room is located to the rear, complete with wooden flooring, prominent styling and reams of space – the perfect place for entertaining friends and family come the party season. A study can also be found on this floor, as well as a WC and a separate annexe kitchen and sitting room. Previously a self-contained apartment, this level has since been incorporated back into the main house.
The lower ground floor of the home houses the huge and splendid kitchen/breakfast room. Offering a slightly more modern and contemporary aspect, there’s tiled flooring throughout, huge amounts of storage and a trendy kitchen island – perfect for evening meal preparations or quick breakfasts.
A lovely family room can be found to the rear of this floor. Bright and airy, it provides the perfect place for winding down in the evenings or socialising with friends come the warmer months – with doors leading out to the rear garden there are endless possibilities. Further rooms on this floor include a study/gym, utility room, boiler room and a cloakroom.
The living accommodation spans the top two levels of the home. The master is a real treat – located on the first floor it benefits from lovely garden views, two dressing rooms and access to a huge en suite bathroom complete with a walk-in shower. There are a further six bedrooms within the home, each as lovely as the last, with pleasing outlooks and wonderful period features. Two have the added benefits of en suite bathrooms, and there is potential to create a further en suite to bedroom five which is currently being used as a dressing room.
Externally there’s a lot of space to play with. There’s a huge rear garden that gets the best of the sun, complete with a lovely patio area that is ideal for al fresco dining. The rest is mostly laid to lawn – great for sporting activities! – as well as a timber decking area providing another place to sit and relax.
Pembroke Road is close to all of Clifton’s finest amenities. The Durdham Downs are easily reached, as is Whiteladies Road, and access to the city centre is a breeze!
