4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House

9 Melrose Avenue, Northampton


Key Features



This freehold semi-detached home sits between Duston and Dallington and benefits from the privacy afforded by backing onto The Avenue, Dallington.  The house sits on a really good sized corner plot, very deceiving from the front as it fans out to give a fantastic wide plot to the rear which has been superbly designed and landscaped by the current owners.  The property has been transformed from its modest beginnings by one of the current owners, an architect, to create this perfect home for him and his family.  We now have a very spacious family home with a sitting room or large snug, a fantastic open plan kitchen, dining and living room that so many of us crave, a separate laundry/utility room with downstairs loo off,  and a home office on the ground floor.  Upstairs we have four large double bedrooms, the family bathroom and an ensuite shower room and dressing room to the principal bedroom. Outside we have a really fabulous landscaped and private garden to the rear together with parking for at least two vehicles with the potential for more.  So perhaps try and forget any preconceived ideas and think outside the box and step into this amazing home, and be ready for a big surprise!

Let's take a closer look ....A modern partly glazed front door opens into the entrance hall with stairs rising up to the first floor.  There is a large walk in cloaks cupboard to hang your coats and hide all the shoes.  A door leads into the original sitting room with a large bow window to the front of the house, and then WOW, open the door into the fantastic kitchen/dining/living room, its stunning from first sight and looks out over the fabulous landscaped garden.  The space just flows seamlessly between the three distinct areas, equally perfect for day to day family life or entertaining.  The kitchen is very stylish with a superb range of cabinets and is fully equipped with all the range of integrated appliances we would expect to find in a home of this calibre. There is a separate laundry/utility room with a downstairs loo both adjacent to the back door and finally a home office, which could equally be used as a playroom and which leads off from the living area.

Take the stairs up to the first floor and we find four good sized double bedrooms.  The principal bedroom suite is in part of the extension at the rear of the property and has the benefit of a dressing room and shower room ensuite.  Bedroom two is also at the rear whilst the original master bedroom, now bedroom three and bedroom four are at the front together with the stylish family bathroom with feature bay window.

Step outside to the front of the property and we simply find a block paved drive for one car, however step outside the rear of the property and we find something really unexpected and rather special!  We have a wide open plot to the rear which has been superbly landscaped by the current owners giving a choice of outdoor rooms.  We have multiple patio areas including a covered area adjacent to the house bifold doors for that in and out feel, a sunken seating area with bench seating and feature tiling and an area covered by a gazebo currently used for outdoor dining. There is also a good sized area of lawn with adjacent raised beds and a children's play area. The former garage is presently used as a garden store but could be reinstated, there is additional parking  adjacent to the garage accessed by a service road from Crawford Avenue and there are personal gates to both the front and rear of the property.

The house benefits from gas central heating throughout, a combination of upvc and aluminium double glazed windows, and hard wired internet in various rooms.
