Full Details

Halfway down a popular residential road and just offered to the market is a traditional four bedroom detached family home with white pebble dash façade above traditional brickwork. Providing spacious family accommodation featuring high ceilings and fabulous bay windows on the ground and first floors, this uniquely designed property has ample frontage and retains a number of delightful original features, including picture rails, coving, polished wood floors, fireplaces with carved wood surrounds, and is double glazed throughout.

Accessed via three brick and paved steps up to a charming open arched porch and part glazed front door with four panels, the large L-shaped entrance hall offers plenty of space and storage under the stairs, with the staircase featuring polished carved wood bannister leading to the first floor. All the principal rooms lead off the entrance hall. The spacious lounge is to the front of the property which has a large bay window that allows light to flood the room and a closed fireplace with electric powered coal-effect fire, tiled hearth and fire back, bordered by a stunning, decorative polished wood carved surround and mantel.

Further down is the sitting room which overlooks the rear garden and has a large bay window, flooding the room with light, and a glazed door providing access to the garden. A particular feature of this room is the open fireplace with original fire grate and iron back fire that sits on a marble hearth, bordered by a fabulous polished wood surround and mantel.

The kitchen diner has a superb log burner set in a brick surround fireplace with a tiled hearth and a beautiful dark wood mantel above. In the alcoves either side of the fireplace’s chimney is handmade wood shelving to one side and built-in polished wood base and wall cupboards, with the wall cupboard having glazed doors. All of the reception rooms retain plenty of delightful character features, such as picture rails, coved ceilings and deep skirting boards.

The carpeted L-shaped staircase which gets plenty of natural light from a large window over the half landing, leads to the first floor. Three of the four bedrooms are generous in size, two of which have a large bay window and one benefiting from an ensuite cloakroom with hand basin and WC. The well-proportioned family bathroom is part and fully tiled with an attractive strip of grey/black decorative tiles. The immaculate white bathroom suite and white tiles ensures a bright room with plenty of storage space.

The property's generous frontage and decorative red and grey brick paved driveway, bordered by well-maintained and neatly trimmed established hedges, trees and shrubs below the bay window, provides highly sought after off road parking for two vehicles. To the left of the property is the single width, double length garage, accessed by double wooden doors. Bordered by established hedges, shrubs and trees on either side, there is a central crazy paved pathway which leads to a large covered, open fronted wood store, which is raised a few inches off the ground, and a greenhouse to the left. Along the left hand side of the garden is a paved terrace area that is well secluded and perfect for entertaining.
