The property is well set back from the road with a wide open frontage onto a gravel driveway that provides ample off-road parking for several cars. There is a tall wood gate to the side which leads to the side access and rear. A fully glazed enclosed porch and impressive stained glass and wood panelled front door opens into the entrance hall, with a glazed divider and stairs to the first floor. Currently, there are only the original floorboards and exposed wood stairs, allowing the new owners to make their own choice of flooring.
From the entrance hall, it is open plan into the wonderfully bright living room with light grey wood flooring, a floor to ceiling built-in open front and shelved corner storage cupboard, and a lovely large bay window which allows the light to flood in to the room. To the right of the hall is a further reception room which overlooks the front and lends itself to become a study. Behind the stairs is a doorway into the utility room, which has yet to be fitted out with any wall or base units, but has space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is also access to the fully tiled downstairs shower room which has a WC, wash hand basin, heated towel rail, tiled floor and a shower cubicle with sliding glass door.
Double glazed doors from the living room open out into the fabulous kitchen/dining room, which can also be accessed via the hall. The light grey wood flooring and recessed lighting, as well as a skylight in the kitchen and double French doors in to the garden, ensures light pours into the heart of the home. The stunning fully fitted contemporary kitchen with tiled floor has a range of black fronted drawer and base with contrasting white work surfaces above, wall units, some with glazed panels, and tiled walls behind, built-in double oven, built-in six-ring gas hob with extractor hood above, space for a large American-style fridge/freezer and a central island with inset single drainer sink unit and mixer tap, drawers and space for washing machine beneath, and an extra width work surface to allow for a breakfast bar and stools underneath.
At the rear of the property is the expansive carpeted family room with a wide fully glazed door leading to the side access, and a full width set of bi-fold glazed doors that lead into the charming rear garden.
The wood balustrade stairs take you to the first floor landing which provides access to five double bedrooms, and the shower room. The principal and guest bedrooms overlooking the rear and the front of the property respectively, benefit from fully tiled en suite shower rooms with WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle with sliding glazed door. A further front bedroom has a delightful bay window with wood window seat that incorporates built-in cupboards and drawers beneath. The fully tiled family shower room with tiled floor has a white suite with a WC, pedestal wash hand basin, heated towel rail and shower cubicle with sliding glass door. Most of the bedrooms have original wood floorboards, leaving the new owners to choose their style of flooring.
From the first floor landing is a further staircase that takes you to the second floor landing and to two further double bedrooms, both of which have large Velux windows through which plenty of light enters. There is also access to an expansive loft room with Velux windows, built-in under eaves storage, and an attractive wrought iron circular staircase surrounded by wood balustrades that leads down to the bedroom below. Again, all of the rooms on the second floor bedrooms have original wood floorboards, allowing the new owners to choose their style of flooring.
A delightful feature of the property is the lovely sunny garden which is fenced on all sides with wood panels. Mainly laid to lawn and providing plenty of open space for children’s climbing frames, swings and football nets, there is a full garden width decking area that is ideal for family gatherings and entertaining.
