This stunning family home set across 4 floors and built in 1866, brims with the light-filled elegant proportions and characteristic features of the height of Victorian architecture; with blue and buff decorative brick detailing, picture rails and deep wainscoting. Lovingly maintained, the house has benefitted from the considered replacement of original sash windows with double glazed uPVC in the same style and has been fully rewired throughout. The kitchen too has been transformed with the introduction of a glazed wall with central French doors opening onto a house-spanning entertaining deck and private walled garden oasis beyond. Both the lower level with tanked cellar and garage and the attic’s loft room offer exciting further potential.

While for leisure opposite lies the Tennis & Squash Club. Whitecross also boasts Ofsted “Good” Trinity Primary School and Whitecross High School and Specialist Sports College and is only a 10 mins traffic-free cycle route to the City Centre.
