This substantial property, extending over 1900 sq. ft., has been a cherished family home for over four decades. Now time for new ownership, this home, with its generous plot and accommodation, offers an exciting and rare opportunity for the purchaser to redesign and remodel to create a modern family residence juxtaposing the period exterior, subject to relevant planning. The accommodation is in need of cosmetic modernisation for those desiring contemporary living.
The potential offered is immediately evident upon entering into the large and welcoming entrance hall, with the dining room to the right which overlooks the front garden; it is complemented by double glazed doors to the garden. To the other side of the entrance hall is the sitting room which has a large bay window with decorative glass panels, fitted shelves either side of the chimney breast and a brick built fireplace with a built-in gas fire. There is a ground floor shower room with WC, wash basin and shower cubicle.
To the rear of the property is the spacious living room which overlooks the garden and has a recessed square window that incorporates French doors to the garden. There is a gas fire sitting on a slate hearth with a painted surround and cast iron mantel above. Opposite the fireplace is a beautiful stained glass window that looks into the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with wood wall and base units with white work surfaces and tiled walls behind, a built-in gas hob and electric double oven, and a double sink unit. There is ample space for freestanding appliances.
The staircase, rising from the entrance hall, grants access to the landing above and four out of the six existing bedrooms are generous doubles, two of which face the extensive garden. This floor is completed with a family bathroom and features sanitary ware from past trends encompassing a tiled panelled bath, WC and wash hand basin. The second floor consists of one double bedroom with wardrobes set within the eaves. This floor could be transformed into a home office for modern living.
There is a secluded garden that surrounds the property with a crazy paved entertaining terrace with lean-to greenhouse, a small area of lawn and a pond to the rear. The garden has two entrance gates, on the front and the side. The garage, adjacent to the back garden, has its own driveway that sets it back from the road and a door leads to the back garden. There are also a range of well-established trees and shrubs for added privacy.
