Why buy this home?
Built in 2016 by Taylor Wimpey, this two bedroom house has been designed for modern living. The open-plan downstairs means that as soon as you enter you get a sense of the space. A floor to ceiling window next to the front door cleverly allows light to enter the space ensuring it is bright and airy.
As you enter there is a WC on the left hand side which has plenty of space to hang coats and hide shoes away. A utility cupboard on the right houses the washing machine, meaning noise is reduced when in operation. It's also a handy space to store cleaning essentials.
The kitchen itself has white high gloss units and grey worktops. There is an integratedd fridge/freezer as well as a gas hob and electric oven. The horseshoe shape provides a natural separation between the kitchen and the living room, but the extended worktop also doubles up as a useful breakfast bar.
The main living space is a comfortable size, with room under the stairs for a small table and chairs meaning no need for dinner in front of the TV! A rear door leads on to the garden which has both a patio and lawn area ideal for BBQ's and social gatherings, without being too large to maintain.
Upstairs are two good sized double bedrooms. The master bedroom has ample space for numerous wardrobes. The bathroom has stylish grey tiles surrounding the bath, an overhead shower with glass shower screen and a heated towel rail.
The second bedroom is a good size double with an alcove for wardrobe freeing up floor space. This makes it ideal for a friend to stay, home office, dressing room or guest room. Parking is provided by a driveway for two cars, but there is also ample communal parking available as well.
