The annex comes with a living room and makings of a kitchen/diner (utility units and plumbing in situ); separate entrance together with separate staircase and access to the rear garden. Within the main house are three reception rooms, (comprising formal dining room, living room and snug); a games room and a kitchen dining room, in addition to utility, cloakroom and garaging facilities...

Linkside was built by and for the Bibby Shipping Line family. Not surprisingly then, the architectural detail and design comprises an illustrious display of the most perfect, polished oak wood work; a few examples of which we would like to highlight, many more however are for you to appreciate should you wish to view.
The polished stripped oak floor that welcomes you in the grandest and warmest of entrance hall is beautiful. (see the sunlight, even on a winter's day, flooding much of the hall; picture the fireplace in full glow at Christmas). Not to be outmatched, the landing is of a similar grand proportion and design and offers absolute elegance. And this flooring flows throughout all principle ground floor rooms, most apparent in the hall, as well as within the formal dining room and family kitchen dining room, (The sitting room has furniture which hides much of this rich woodwork).
The dining room has a particularly handsome fireplace, which is one of two central focal points to this most attractive of rooms. However the most eye catching and best example perhaps of all of this fine wood work is that which makes up the inglenook fireplace within this splendid family kitchen room. (A kitchen with oodles of attractive granite). There are many other examples of fine joinery which we'll leave for you to appreciate during your viewing.
The second 'feature' or focal point to the dining room is that of the bay window. (All principle reception rooms and bedrooms look outward towards the south and south west upon the extensive and private gardens). This most handsome of bays which is replicated at first floor and contributes hugely to what is a very special dressing room may, to some, hint of a nautical design with its ship's bridge like, wide angled view point. Whatever, the bays add a uniqueness to these truly lovely rooms whilst adding interest architecturally from the outside too.
Continuing at ground floor and whilst on the subject of garden views; take note please of the views from the seating area within this large working kitchen and indeed, from all other reception rooms. The kitchen enjoys a splayed bay window, the living room a deep square bay; the snug benefits from patio doors all enjoying south to south west 'sunny' garden and extensive patio views..
Meanwhile rather than the children playing on the 'top field' ie, a perfect flat football pitch size of a garden to the far side of the garden; they may be found in either the playroom (also know as the X Box or Wii room, one on each floor level; the upper doubling as the Tardis. ('Bet Dr Who wished he'd designed a full en suite facility off his control room) - and of course all that space means more entertaining room choice for you...
Now the main bedroom facilities are excellent and enviably well serviced by a generous number of bathing or showering rooms. Arguably our most favourite room in the entire house, although potentially equal first together with the dining room is that of the master bedroom. Certainly more of ' bedroom suite' than just bedroom.
For this absolutely gorgeous 'through' bedroom has some more examples of polished oak; more than that it has this magnificent and enviable dressing room with the aforementioned bay window - see our slide show of photographs. It's over generous in its space and overly generous in its garden view outlook just as much; it even house a shower room tucked away to the end of the bespoke wardrobe furniture.
Generous too for the fact that when you're not so rushed to get to work....or play, there's a separate, sumptuously spacious combined bathroom to enjoy. So yes, a bedroom suite with two en suite rooms.
Further along this extraordinary charming of 'period' landing areas are two more double bedrooms opposite to which is a full bathroom suite. Pass on by the fourth bedroom (large single), through and passed the Tardis and you have access to the annex.
In our main bullet points for describing Linkside we have classed the house rightly as a four bedroomed house (plus two bedrooms from the annex). However the first floor playroom and master suite dressing room could be remodelled to increase the overall bedroom number.
Access from the landing to the annex or from ground floor. At ground floor it has its own hall area, front and rear door access. Nice bright, well lit (naturally) and relaxing areas, both, And as we've mentioned the annex comes with two double bedrooms together with the final 'bathroom' (shower cabinet, loo and basin) of the house.
And so to the outdoors. Quite a plot. So well and naturally screened from the road. With dual entrance laid in sandstone flagging. Our first outdoor photo is of the front taken from the front door of the house, so you can see the space, the neatness, the privacy either side of the two lamp posts.
Plenty of room to the east side of the house too, adjacent to the double garage, space for less glamorous activities perhaps thus leaving the acres of beautifully kept Indian sandstone for what it should be kept for... As for the garden? We think our last two photos speak volumes enough.
