Full Details

A loved home for more than 30 years, this attractive double-fronted house comes to the market and offers its next family plenty of flexible space, a beautifully maintained rear garden and ample off-road parking. It sits on a popular residential road near to local amenities and leisure options. Light pours in through large windows, highlighting this property’s many attributes, and is a must-see for anyone looking for their new forever home.

An expansive tarmac driveway fronts the property, providing off-road parking for several cars, and leads down the side of the house to the garage and garden. A curved step and a portico encompass the front door which opens into the porch, ideal for coats, and a glazed door invites you into the entrance hall with the stairs to the first floor ahead of you.

On either side of the hall are the living room and the dining room, both with deep bay windows through which the light pours in. A feature of the living room, which extends the depth of the house, is the central fireplace which sits on a tiled hearth with a tiled back and wooden surround with mantel above. Adjacent to the door is a built-in cupboard with fitted shelves above. At the end of the hall is the downstairs cloakroom, which has a low-level WC and wall-mounted corner wash hand basin.

Beyond the dining room is the fitted, part-tiled kitchen with a range of wall, drawer and base units with work surfaces above, and a stainless steel sink unit with a mixer tap. There is a built-in oven with a gas hob and extractor hood above as well as space for a washing machine, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer, while a door leads out into the side access.

From the entrance hall, the carpeted stairs with wood banisters rise to the first-floor galleried landing, which provides access to three double bedrooms, the family shower room and the loft space. The principal and third bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobes while the second bedroom is currently being used as an office.

The large family shower room has a low-level WC, a wash hand basin sitting on a vanity unit that provides storage below, a heated towel rail, a double enclosed shower cubicle, which is fully tiled, and there is access to the airing cupboard.

At the front of the property, the tarmac drive provides parking for several vehicles and access to the garage with an up-and-over door, as well as pedestrian access at the rear. To the left are iron double gates that open into the rear garden. Immediately to the rear of the house is an expansive paved terrace, ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. A pathway leads around the manicured lawn to a further paved seating area, where you will find a charming summerhouse on one side. Throughout the garden is an extensive range of mature plant borders, shrubs and trees for the family to enjoy.
