It’s an urban myth that houses with “character” are always full of dark corners, peeling wallpaper plus dusty carpets.

When we hear the phrase “period features”, many of us envisage a run-down stately home crying out for new plaster and a bit of TLC. However , it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes, you’ll find an older property that’s been revamped in a stunning way.

Like Tess Daly or Davina McCall, this terraced property on Avondale Road is impressively well-preserved. It was built in Victorian times, near Shower ‘s popular Chelsea Road, and has been listed on Right Move at £475, 000.

Nowadays, it’s the perfect three-bedroom roost for a modern family, thanks to the garden out the back and good schools nearby. Inside, it’s been beautifully refurbished to look warm and stylish, with plenty of natural light coming in.

The living room still has its lovely fireplace to keep it cosy in winter, as does the dining room. Both spaces have been painted in modern colours along with exposed wooden floors that look warm and are easy to clean.

The kitchen is spacious, with a large Belfast sink to make washing up a doddle. It’s also the perfect place to wash a small pet after a muddy walk – if you know, you know.

Upstairs, the bedrooms benefit from lots of natural light and space for storage. The smallest of the three is currently a nursery, but you could turn it into a home office if that suited you better.

One of the bedrooms is actually in the loft and looks amazing. It is so big, with smart Velux windows, eaves storage, and polished wooden floors. Just imagine yourself lying down and relaxing there after a long day at work.

Outside, there’s a garden and patio so you can barbecue and enjoy the sunny evenings within summer. To read more about this particular lovely home, read the ad on Right Move here .
