Full Details

Set back from the pavement and featuring a low brick wall at the front, an iron pedestrian gate and paved path leads to a part glazed front door with arched window above, which gives access to the porch. A further door leads into the L-shaped entrance hall with a beautiful original Victorian tiled floor. At the end of the hall, before it turns left, is a part glazed door to the garden. The turned staircase features a carved wood balustrade and decorative finials with a large storage cupboard under the stairs, a further walk-in storage cupboard and the part tiled downstairs cloakroom with WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

The entrance hall provides access to the reception rooms, both of which have superb sash bay windows that allow the light to flood in. The principal reception room has a delightful fireplace with coal effect gas fire, marble hearth, surround and mantel. The second reception room with a wood floor also features a charming open cast iron fireplace with a more decorative marble surround and mantel, and a slate hearth. To the rear are French doors that lead into the garden.

The superb kitchen/breakfast/family room to the rear of the property features a fully fitted contemporary modern kitchen which has a range of wall, base and drawer units with granite work surfaces above, a built-in double oven, a five-ring gas hob and extractor hood above, and space for a large American style fridge/freezer with plumbing for a water and ice facility. There is a central island with built-in cupboards and dishwasher, granite work surface with inset stainless steel single drainer sink unit and mixer tap, and space for four breakfast stools on one side. Bifold doors provide plenty of light into the room and give access to the rear garden.

From the family area is access to an inner hall which leads to a utility room with tiled floor, space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer, as well as a part glazed door to the rear. The inner hall also leads to a workshop, ideal as an office or a crafts room, with a door to the outside.

The turned staircase leads to the light and spacious first floor landing with loft access and leading to three good-sized bedrooms, a fourth single bedroom and the family bathroom. The front two bedrooms feature large sash bay windows and fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom to the rear of the property benefits from a part tiled en suite shower room with WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle. The fourth bedroom, also with a bay window overlooking the garden, is currently being used as an office and has fitted shelves.

The spacious part tiled family bathroom has a free-standing roll top bath with central mixer tap, wash hand basin with cupboard below and mirror-fronted bathroom cabinet above, heated towel rail, WC and separate shower unit with curved glass door.

A side access leads to a charming rear garden which provides a good degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a fabulous raised brick and decoratively paved terrace that leads around the side of the house with steps down on to the lawn. Raised beds are featured along one wall and to the back of the garden, with a small wooden garden shed and a lovely painted summerhouse.
