Why buy this home?
Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac in the popular Brooklands area, is this extended home with three popular schools within walking distance. Offered in fantastic condition throughout and boasting three double bedrooms, this home is ideal for a growing family.
Upon entering the property, the hall leads to all the downstairs accommodation and the stairs lead up to the first floor.
The spacious living room has a bow window to the front which adds character to the room and there is storage built around the chimney breast of the open fireplace. The open fire is the star of the show in this room and the current owners have spent many a cold winter's evening curled up with a drink, watching the flames flicker. Decorated to a high standard with neutral colours, the room has an inviting feel and is the perfect place to relax after a busy day.
A dining area that opens into the kitchen is fantastic for families as it means parents can keep an eye on children sitting at the table whilst they are preparing meals. Often when friends or family are over, the person doing the cooking can be isolated in the kitchen but this arrangement also allows everyone to be together. There is enough space for a large dining table and the current owners have made use of the space under the stairs to create a bespoke storage unit which includes a wine rack.
The fresh kitchen has a country feel with wooden work surfaces and space for a Rangemaster oven. There are plenty of storage units and there is additional space for a dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge/freezer. Rustic open shelving is in keeping with the style of the kitchen and allows for many of your kitchen items to be reached easily. A window overlooks the garden so any children can be seen as they play in the garden.
A W/C completes the downstairs accommodation.
The first floor has three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom is to the rear overlooking the garden and currently has a king-size bed with enough space for bed side tables. The second bedroom is at the front and is currently being used as the office. Due to its shape, this room may be preferred to be used as the main bedroom as you can have the bed at one end of it and a wardrobe and drawers at the other end. The third bedroom has dual aspect windows and is being used as a nursery. Although the smaller of the three rooms, it is still a good size so there should not be too many disagreements when deciding who gets which room.
When the current owners purchased this home there was a shower cubicle in the bathroom, a bathtub has been re-installed to make it more family friendly and there is a rain fall shower over it. It is partially tiled with subway tiles, there is a built storage cupboard, and a window provides natural ventilation.
Outside, the secluded rear garden gets the afternoon sun, with strategically placed zones to ensure that you can follow it. A raised decking area where the garage used to be is great for catching up with friends and the ideal place to have your BBQ. There is a separate patio area, and a winding path with flower borders leads to the end of the garden where the current owners have a table and chairs to enjoy the last of the evening sun.
At the front of the property, there is a carport with parking for a further two cars in front of it. There is an electric charge point and flower borders add some colour.
