Located at the end of a quiet cul de sac, this attractive house with elevations of red brick and tile was built in 1946 and has been tastefully renovated throughout by the current owner. The entrance door opens into a porch area leading to stairs to the first floor. Engineered oak flooring flows through into the light and airy lounge which looks out over the front of the property with a contemporary electric fire providing a stylish focal point to the room. A large cupboard under the stairs provides storage and can even been used as a study space. The lounge opens out into the generous conservatory which overlooks the rear garden.
The kitchen-diner is a great room for modern family living. There is a range of contemporary wall and base units with stylish concrete effect worktops and tiled splashback. A full range of integrated appliances include a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge / freezer, electric oven, extractor hood and 4 burner gas hob. A door provides direct access into the garden where there is an outbuilding containing a utility space and separate WC.
Upstairs the first floor landing leads to two double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The family bathroom has been nicely finished with vinyl flooring and tiled walls incorporating mosaic detailing. There is a modern white suite including a roll top bath, separate freestanding shower cubicle, low level W.C. and wall hung basin with vanity storage unit. The master bedroom is dual aspect and benefits from stunning countryside views where some beautiful sunsets can be seen.
The property benefits from double glazed windows and mains gas central heating with a Worcester Bosch combi boiler installed in 2018. There is significant extension potential for those that want to add space and value to this wonderful home. The large loft has been prepared for conversion with utilities installed in readiness. There is also further potential to extend over the conservatory which together could add a 3rd and 4th bedroom.
The house is approached across a shingled drive which provides off-road parking for several vehicles. There is a wonderful acer tree with stunning red foliage and picket fencing around the boundary. A gate to the right hand side provides side access to the substantial south west facing garden which itself backs onto beautiful countryside. To the immediate rear of the house is a curved patio which wraps down the side of the property and offers a great spot for al fresco entertaining. External lighting allows for entertaining well into the night and a large area of lawn provides plenty of space for children to play. There is a stunning variety of flowering and herbaceous shrubs and plants providing colour throughout the seasons including exotic palm trees and an attractive line of sycamore and silver birch trees along the rear boundary. In the far corner of the garden is a large shed providing useful outside storage space.
The rear boundary of the garden has been moved to incorporate an area of unadopted land. Professional advice should be sought to provide assurance on this matter before proceeding with the purchase.
