7 Audley Road is a sought after and rarely available Victorian property which has been in the same ownership for about 30 years. Of brick elevations beneath a slate roof with pretty scalloped barge boards, the house is much deeper than first expected and provides really well proportioned, light and spacious accommodation over 3 floors. There are many features of the period including sash windows with bays to the front elevation, panelled doors with brass handles, deep skirtings, cornicing, dado rails, and the principal rooms have high ceilings.
The front door, with a stained glass panel above, leads to the entrance lobby with a tiled floor and a part etched glass door to the reception/dining hall with turning stairs to the first floor. Immediately to the left is the south facing sitting room a delightful room with attractive bay window, a fireplace fitted with a gas coal-effect fire and a carved wooden surround and mantel. The dining hall is a double aspect room with an open fireplace with carved wooden surround and there is access from here to an inner lobby with coat storage, a cloakroom and an L-shaped study overlooking the front and rear gardens. Steps lead from the dining hall towards the glazed double doors to the kitchen at the rear of the house and there is access to the useful basement with brick flooring, a water softener, a laundry/utility and a wine store. The Kitchen/breakfast room is divided into two areas, the breakfast area having part glazed French doors to the rear garden and useful shelved china cupboards and the kitchen area is fitted with a two oven gas fired Aga and a range of fitted cupboards, drawers, display shelving, and space for an electric cooker. Beyond is the garden lobby with tiled floor, half glazed door to the garden and the boiler room housing the gas fired boiler.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, one having a Jack and Jill bathroom also connecting with the landing with power shower and corner bath and another, at the rear of the house has a large en suite bathroom with separate shower. The upper floor provides two more bedrooms both in the eaves and enjoying super views over the town the larger front bedroom has a walk in cupboard and stripped wooden flooring, and the rear bedroom having views of the church.
There is a mature yew tree at the front of the house, providing a good screen with a number of trees and shrubs, a drive, turning area, car port and parking for a number of cars. To the rear, the garden is a delight - walled with a mix of brick and flint with pretty red brick pathways, a mature Wysteria, flowers, shrubs and Silver Birch.

This versatile brick and weatherboarded building is accessed from both the garden and East Street and has two floors the lower providing a fantastic garden store with former feeding troughs along one wall, and the upper approached from the garden, is used as a workshop with good south facing light. There are external steps linking the two rooms.
