Why buy this home?

If you are thinking of purchasing a brand-new home, then this nearly two year old one is sure to be a consideration. It is full of upgrades, decorated to an extremely high standard - so you certainly aren’t getting a ‘Magnolia mansion’, has a landscaped garden and it comes without the inevitable snagging list. Most importantly, it is ready to move into now.

Sometimes a modern property can lack curb appeal, but this one definitely does not. The red brick and Georgian style windows give a character twist on a modern home.

Entering through the front door, it is immediately apparent that you aren’t in a standard new build home. Bright colours and grey Amtico flooring laid in a Herringbone style welcome you and give a great first impression of the home.

The living room is decorated with subtle colours which give it warmth, but it also allows you to accessorise in a way that suits your family’s taste. There is more than enough space for a two- and a three-seater sofa, so all the family can be together at the end of a long day.

Undoubtedly, the 18ft kitchen/diner is the star of the show in this home and it is a space in which you would be proud to entertain. The kitchen units were upgraded to an indigo blue colour and are a shaker style which gives them a country feel. As they are fitted in a U-shape design, there is lots of worktop space meaning that more than one person can be preparing food at the same time. It has pan drawers and a pull-out rack to maximise storage, and the Amtico flooring from the entrance hall flows into here which is easy to clean and maintain. Fitted appliances include a double oven, an electric hob with extractor fan over it, a dishwasher and a fridge freezer. There is a cupboard that is designed to house your washing machine and tumble dryer, freeing up space for storage in the kitchen. The dining area currently has a six-seater table in it but due to the available space, if you wanted a bigger table then the area would take it. As it leads out on to the rear garden, parents can keep an eye on children playing or if hosting, anyone in the kitchen can still be a part of the gathering when it is in the garden.

A big advantage of purchasing a re-sale property over a brand new one is that the garden has usually been landscaped, and that is the case here. It faces southwest so you can be assured of sunshine during the warmer months and there is an area at the rear of the garden where you can add seating to provide privacy. The patio is large enough to accommodate your BBQ and summer seating and there is a shed for storage.

Upstairs there are three well proportioned bedrooms with the main one benefiting from an en-suite shower room. As with the downstairs of the home, upstairs is tastefully decorated. The main bedroom is at the front of the home and has space for all the bedroom furniture you would need, including space in an alcove for your wardrobe. The second bedroom is perfect for a teenager as it has space for furniture and additional room for a desk. As far as third bedrooms go, this one is a great size. It is currently being used as an office but still has room for a day bed in it but it would also make a lovely nursery if required. Bedrooms two and three are serviced by the family bathroom which has the same Amtico flooring from downstairs, complimenting the grey tiling. It also has a shower over the bath so there shouldn’t be any delays when getting ready in the mornings.

There is allocated parking for two cars at the front of the property.
