A stunning extended Victorian family home situated on the favoured west side of town.
Most of Horsham’s amenities and services are easily accessible from Trafalgar Road. It’s just a 10-minute walk from the centre, making this house a great place to live for anyone who works or enjoys spending time in the town. Horsham offers a number of restaurants, including Michelin Starred ‘Restaurant Tristan’, quaint pubs, and a shopping centre.
Nearby, you’ll find Horsham’s large park, which includes football fields, a running track, pond – and even a maze. And on the other side are the cinema, leisure centre and train station where around 50 trains leave for London each day (about a 20-minute walk). The property has a driveway at the front with space for two cars. And if you leave town by road often, you’ll find it easy to get out onto main routes like the A23, which will take you in the direction of Gatwick and beyond.
For shopping, a large Waitrose and John Lewis at home is within walking distance of the house or just a couple of minutes in the car. And for anyone with a young family, you’ll be pleased to know Horsham has some of the best primary and secondary schools in the country all within a few miles of Trafalgar Road. In addition, 6th Form college, ‘Colliers’, is also within walking distance from this property.
The house had a typical Victorian layout, including a lounge, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. Originally, there was even a coal shed and outside loo. Over time the property has been renovated and redecorated, converting the loft and adding an extension to the back of the property so the kitchen leads directly into the garden. It now has a light, spacious living area with new solid wooden flooring on the ground floor, and the added privacy of a master suite (bedroom and bathroom) on the top level.
Thanks to the extensive work carried out at this home, 109 Trafalgar Road is open, light and spacious – something that’s not typical in this type of property. An open plan kitchen and lounge area, which could also double as a dining space, provides a place where families or friends can cook together and chat. The bar stools at the kitchen island and the sofa area both provide a place to relax or socialise. And when the weather permits, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors can be opened to give direct access to the garden, making the area feel even larger.
If staying warm and cosy is how you prefer to spend your time, you’ll love to make use of the separate lounge. The room, which is at the front of the house, still has the original working fireplace and would be perfect as a comfortable snug, TV room, study or children’s playroom.
On the second floor is a recently converted oasis. With its own en suite bathroom and a Juliette balcony overlooking the back garden, this is a space where you can get ready for your day or unwind in peace. If you have children, the two additional bedrooms and family bathroom on level one mean that all of their toys and games (and the noise that comes with them) can be contained on one floor.
The property has been improved to an exceptional standard. Finishing touches include beautiful wooden flooring on the ground floor, high quality Neff appliances in the modern kitchen and exquisite dual sinks in the en suite bathroom.
Other benefits include off street parking and no onward chain.
Internal viewings are highly recommended.
