Full Details

The property has been extended to the rear to provide additional ground floor space, and retains plenty of beautiful original features including extensive layered coving, skirting boards, wood floors, Victorian cast iron fireplaces and traditional style sash windows.

The property is approached via a small paved front garden with metal railings and path leading to the panelled front door. The long entrance hall stretches down the right hand side of the property with stairs to the first floor toward the end, and gives access to the living room and the dining room.
To the front of the property is the living room which has a wood floor, a lovely big bay window that allows the light to flood the room, and an attractive fireplace with wood surround and mantel, and tiled hearth, and fitted shelves in one alcove. The dining room, which looks out to the rear, also has a wood floor and fitted shelves to one side of the chimney breast, an additional storage cupboard and a panelled door which leads to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The superb galley kitchen has a wonderfully sunny disposition and is fitted with a range of contemporary glossy white wall and base units with sage coloured doors on the base units, as well as ample work surfaces, a large Range gas cooker with double oven below an extensive hob, and a cooker hood above, single drainer sink unit with mixer tap, built-in microwave, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer, a floor to ceiling storage cupboard, space for further fridge/freezer, built-in dishwasher and washing machine, and has a tiled floor. The breakfast area is at the end of the galley kitchen and has fully glazed double doors leading to the rear garden, which together with the window ensures plenty of light and sunshine pours into the room.

The first floor landing gives access to three bedrooms and the shower room. The delightful first bedroom is to the front of the property and incorporates a charming Victorian style roll top bath with mixer tap and shower attachment in one corner. On the opposite wall is a decorative cast iron fireplace with painted wood surround and mantel. Bedroom two and bedroom three overlook the rear and both have a lovely cast iron fireplace with mantel above. The shower room is fully tiled with a white suite comprising a WC, wash hand basin with an industrial style mixer tap and shower cubicle with folding glazed door. Halfway up the stairs from the first floor landing is a large eaves storage cupboard and on the second floor is a very well-proportioned fourth bedroom. A particular feature of this room is the fabulous exposed brickwork on one wall which offsets the understated elegance of the bedroom. Windows on both aspects allow light into the room and there is ample storage under the eaves. A panelled door takes you into the en suite which is fully tiled with a WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle that has a glazed door.

At the back of the property is a well-maintained garden with a paved terrace immediately outside the property, ideal for seating and entertaining, which is the perfect suntrap. There is panel fencing on one side and a brick wall on the other along which is growing a fig tree, a paved path with lawn area to the right which leads to the rear access and small storage shed, and there are a couple of borders with established shrubs, raspberry bushes and apple trees.
