A truly magnificent 5/6 bedroom residence of Edwardian character set within secluded southwesterly facing gardens within a half mile of the seafront in the heart of Meads. Bishop Carey is the major part of a detached residence that was converted by the award winning developer, Fivewalk Homes some 15 or so years ago. The house is set behind remotely operated electric gates and provides wonderfully spacious accommodation over three floors. A fine hardwood door with glazed panels opens in to a vestibule with mosaic tiled floor which in turn leads to the hugely impressive 25' x 13' reception hall with parquet flooring and handsome wide staircase rising to the upper floors. The ground floor accommodation includes a splendid 25' x 13' drawing room with decorative ceiling cornice and a door providing access to the rear garden. The 19' x 15' kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with high quality wall and base units, pan drawers and a central island with granite work surfaces. A comprehensive range of AEG appliances include a double oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, American style fridge/freezer and second fridge. The staircase rises from the reception hall to the first landing with a splendid stained glass window that also features on the second floor bathing both landings with excellent natural light. There are two generous double bedrooms on the first floor, both with fitted bedroom furniture, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other providing access to a generous balcony. There is also a study/sixth bedroom fitted with high quality office furniture and shelving. The second floor comprises three further bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, together with a family bathroom. The low maintenance rear garden is mainly lawned with a patio and enjoys considerable privacy, whilst there is ample off road parking in addition to the large detached garage to the front. Enviably located, the Meads Village shopping facilities are within a few hundred yards whilst the seafront is just a little further. An internal inspection to appreciate the merits of this quite exceptional family home.
