Why buy this home?
No upper chain.
This home is located on Billington Park, which is an established, residential area ideal for raising a family, with local schools, a Co-op shop, play areas, and open spaces, all within walking distance. There is even a running track to keep the children active and off their computers! The development also provides easy road access to the A505 and junction 11A of the M1.
Upon entering the property there is a downstairs toilet on the right-hand side of the entrance hall, which is often much needed in a family home.
The living room is a good size and offers versatility to choose either traditional two- and three-seater settees or a corner sofa. As it is decorated in neutral colours, this gives you the option to add colour through furniture and accessories.
Off the living room is the dining area where you can comfortably fit a six-seater table. There is a door that leads out to the rear garden and understairs storage in which to keep your vacuum cleaner and ironing board.
The kitchen is well stocked with storage units and work top space. There is a fitted electric oven and a gas hob which has an extractor fan over it, and there is space for a freestanding fridge/freezer and a washing machine. If a kitchen/diner was your preference, the wall separating the kitchen and dining area could be removed to create an open space spanning the rear of the home.
The rear garden is low-maintenance and perfect for someone who does not want the hassle of gardening but simply wants to enjoy the sunshine and relax. There is a shed that has power to it and a gate that provides rear access.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two of these are doubles and one is a good size single. The main bedroom is at the front of the property and benefits from a fitted wardrobe and an additional storage cupboard over the stairs. The main bedroom is serviced by an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is a generous size and easily fits a double bed, a wardrobe, and a chest of drawers, so could be used as the main bedroom if you preferred sleeping at the rear of the property. The single bedroom is currently being used as a dressing room but would make a great office, a child’s bedroom or a nursery.
The family bathroom is spacious and gives more than enough room if bathing children. Tiling around water sensitive areas means any splashes can be easily cleaned up and another shower could be added over the bath.
Parking is provided by a space in front of a garage and there is plenty of additional parking nearby.
