Property Profile Landmark houses like this rarely become available and for Sterling House it’s the first time in 32 years. This charming property has wisteria along its triple frontage, has been interior designed and has many original features including cornicing and high ceilings. The herringbone brick paved carriage driveway is accessed through two sets of electric double gates and has parking for seven cars as well as an integral double garage. The Portland stone steps lead up to a raised double door entrance. As you walk through the inviting hallway, your eyes will be drawn to an exquisite galleried bifurcated staircase with brass handrails. The ground floor consists of seven fabulous reception rooms. The split level drawing room has a front bay window, gas fireplace and sliding doors that open up onto a spectacular orangery that is flooded with natural light and can be opened up so that it feels part of the garden. Further receptions include a study, dining room, media room and morning room that links up the orangery with the kitchen / breakfast room. The solid oak kitchen has granite worksurfaces, double sink with waste disposal system, double oven, halogen Neff 5 burner hob with extractor fan above, two Liebherr fridges and a Liebherr freezer. Last, but by no means least, the ground floor also has a stunning billiard room that Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins and Ray Reardon used for practice and exhibition matches. It has its own front door, WC and basin, sliding door onto the patio and of course, a bar. The first floor contains a truly special master suite which has glorious views out over the garden, pool and patio. It comprises of two bedrooms, two spacious en-suites, gym, walk-in wardrobe and a dressing area with plenty of fitted wardrobes. The floor area of the master suite is approximately 1,100 sq ft and benefits from the separate boiler, water tank and hot water system that was installed when this side of the house was extended in 2001. The layout of the house works exceptionally well (indeed it was constructed by a developer for himself). All the bedrooms have generous proportions and all have ample fitted wardrobes. There is one further ensuite, two bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom, plus a family bathroom, which means that the house totals seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. Sterling House is a truly spectacular house that has many wow-factors. There is also ample scope to extend it. There is plenty of potential to create a third storey, subject to the usual consents.

Garden & Exterior To the rear of the property the garden is breathtaking. It is, in essence, a quintessential English Country Garden set in just over 3/4 of an acre. Whilst the garden truly comes into its own in the spring and summer months, many of the beds have been planted to give colour, structure and interest in the autumn and winter making it a true â€˜twelve month gardenâ€™. Under the willow tree at the bottom of the garden, is a fish pond teaming with wildlife. Many small birds and woodpeckers have made their nests in this area. There is a heated 10 metre ceramic tiled swimming pool located in full sun. The immediate surrounding landscaping has been designed to provide maximum seclusion for the pool area. Additionally, there is a summer house and green house, a shower room and WC. The brick built equipment store also houses the computerised controls for the seven zone irrigation system, which draws water from itâ€™s own borehole into a 500 gallon holding tank located in the utility and propagation area. This exceptionally private garden is a haven of tranquillity yet is only moments from the hustle and bustle of Bridge Road, with all its shops, cafes and restaurants.
