Why buy this home?

This spacious coach house, which is situated on the edge of the popular Sandhills development, is well presented and comes with no upper chain, making it the perfect home for a first-time buyer.

A path leads to the front door through a gravelled area surrounded by hedges. This is an area where you could put a table and chairs and enjoy the sunshine during the warmer months.

As you enter the hall through your private front door, there's space to hang your coats and a door provides internal access to the garage. Stairs lead up to the accommodation where all the rooms are accessed from a landing.

The main living area is an excellent size, flooded with natural light and a great space for entertaining or simply relaxing in front of the TV. Due to its size, it offers multiple options for setting out your furniture around the central gas fireplace. You could have a modern corner sofa or opt for the traditional sofa and armchair, the room would take either alongside a large dining table and chairs and still not feel cramped.

Leading on from the living area is the kitchen which is fitted with shaker style units. There is plenty of storage, worktops, and space for your appliances. A huge feature of being open plan means you could have guests over who can relax in the living room whilst you entertain from the kitchen.

The main bedroom comes complete with a large, fitted wardrobe. You can comfortably fit a king-size bed in here with space for bedside tables and a chest of drawers. This room has a lovely feel to it and almost feels secluded from the rest of the home.

Although the second bedroom would take a double bed, it would also make a lovely guest room or a room for a young child. If you work from home, then this room could even provide the ideal space for a home office.

Across from the second bedroom is a modern shower room, re-fitted to an extremely high standard. There is a large shower cubicle, a wash hand basin with vanity storage underneath it and contemporary tiling on the walls and floor. A window provides natural ventilation alongside an extractor fan.

With the correct permissions, the garage could be converted to create further living space or your very own home gym. Previously it has been used as a workshop and could be again, or it could simply be used as storage. At the rear of the property there is further, allocated parking available.
