Situation: From first appearances, one could be forgiven for thinking this is a standard bay windowed, three bedroom, detached property, however, once you step inside you discover that it is anything but standard. A significant programme of extensions to the side, rear and first floor areas has been carried out. The end result is a staggering achievement of good planning and reconfiguration to provide perfect family accommodation suited to today's modern lifestyles.

A brief summary of the property's accommodation and particular features, which enhance the value and saleability of Westfield are: recessed storm porch opening to through hallway, original bay windowed lounge to the front of the property. Leading off the rear of the hall is the open-plan kitchen / dayroom. The main kitchen area sweeps off to the left and extends out to the rear, broken up by bespoke joinery in the form of a horseshoe shaped counter top, which provides a central focal point and entertaining area for the whole room. To the right-hand corner is a dining area featuring an elevated lantern roof, allowing light to filter through in to this glorious open space.

There are two sets of bi-fold doors extending across the rear of the room granting a greater degree of light to flood this exceptional space. A utility has been created, taking a section of the garage together with cloakroom WC. From this is access into the garage, which is now L shaped, but still large enough to accommodate a small classic car.

Westfield boasts further space with a side extension, creating a formal and contemporary lounge / dining area with roof lantern and log burner, all finished to a high standard.

The stairs ascend the first floor landing which then splits. To the left-hand side is an extension with a landing area featuring a walk-in wardrobe, before you reach the master bedroom. The master bedroom has French doors with glass Juliet balcony and full en suite bathroom. Bedroom two is front facing to the extension. Turning right from the landing presents access to the original areas of accommodation with two double and one single bedroom. Bedroom three has a bespoke curved desk fitted to the shape of the bay. There is also a family bathroom. The loft has a Velux rooflight, which together with a fan light window to the landing, allows natural light to this area.


The property is slightly elevated from the roadside and screened behind a shaped wall with mature shrubs. Hedging around the tarmacadam, the driveway spreads across the front and to the side of the garage allowing for ample parking and is wide enough to give vehicular access through to the garden. The rear garden has a patio extending across the width of the property, lawn, rockery, summerhouse where fruit trees surround the rear section.

Directions: From the Balfours office in The Square, walk along the high street and down Wyle Cop towards the English Bridge. Turn right onto St Julians Friars and over Greyfriars footbridge. When you reach the traffic lights, turn right and continue on to Longden Road. The road turns into a gentle slope and you will shortly see Westfield, 9 Longden Road on the left-hand side
