39 Northrop Road is [in our opinion] an exceptional contemporary end of terrace townhouse constructed of buff brick elevations with high specification Velfac double glazed windows and doors which has been cosmetically enhanced by the current owners to create an attractive modern family home.
The house which was one of the original Faulkner style Mansions is part of the first phase of a development called Aura which was completed in 2014 by well renowned national developer Countryside, and is arranged over 3 floors extending to 3,767 sq ft (including the integrated garage). The development is situated off Long Road and the property is located towards the western side off Lime Avenue.
The house is accessed through a large aluminium front door which opens onto the hallway with wide engineered wood flooring.
The hall leads through to the attractive kitchen breakfast room with double height ceilings and views over the back garden through three sets of French doors.
The kitchen is well fitted with a wide range of modern base and wall units with white Corian work surfaces and the full range of integrated Miele appliances including a steam oven, microwave, two double ovens with warming drawers fridge and separate freezer, dishwasher, and a 4 ring induction hob with Kapel extractor fan.
There is a breakfast bar with seating for three or four and ample room for a large dining table and chairs.
To the right of the kitchen the property flows to a large utility room with further storage, a wine fridge and space for a washing machine and tumble drier. There is a separate WC and access is possible to the garden at one end and the garage at the other.
The garage, which has a large electronic sliding door, is large enough to park two cars with ample room around to permit bikes, garden furniture, fit general household requirements and store bins.
Upstairs to the first floor there is an impressive living room with three doors leading to balconies overlooking the tree belt, which has been further enhanced by the current owners with some attractive dark wood storage, book shelves and attractive wallpaper.
On the half landing there are there are three bedrooms all of which have a Juliet balcony. The largest has an en suite shower room with Duravit and Hans Grohe sanitary ware and taps with a separate dressing room.
