Stunningly Modern Four Bedroom Family Home with an Immaculately-Maintained Rear Garden
Lying close to fantastic local amenities including shops, schools, and transport links, this four-bedroom semi-detached house provides an excellent opportunity for commuting professionals with families preferring a quiet retreat, yet still within easy reach of the city centre.
Tucked to the side of the house and approached via a pathway through the front garden, the homes main entrance opens into a welcoming hall with cleverly-designed under-stair storage. Leading off the hall to the right is the kitchen. Here, a wide selection of glossy, contemporary cabinets is accompanied by generous wood-styled worktops and stylish splashback tiling. An electric oven, a sleek hob, and an extractor hood are integrated, whilst space is provided for a freestanding American-style fridge/freezer and an undercounter washing machine. From here, double doors open into a wonderfully bright and spacious living and dining room, creating a fabulous flowing space perfect for everyday family life and entertaining alike. The sunny, dual-aspect reception area spans the entire depth of the house and offers excellent flexibility for a number of lounge and dining furniture layouts and the room enjoys tranquil, muted décor, classic coving, a wood-styled floor and a fire recess housing an electric stove. Completing the ground floor is one of the four double bedrooms on offer: a sunny, south-facing room incorporating a fitted bed with handy, space-saving storage underneath.
On the first floor, a landing with a large built-in cupboard and a loft hatch leads to the three remaining bedrooms and a bathroom. The sleeping areas all enjoy their own unique, tasteful décor and are fitted with plush carpets for maximum comfort underfoot, and the largest of the three boasts wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes. Finally, the chicly-tiled bathroom comprises a bathtub with a rainfall shower overhead and a glazed screen, a pedestal basin, and a toilet. The home is heated by an efficient gas central heating system and benefits from double-glazed windows throughout.
Externally, the house is flanked by beautifully-maintained, landscaped gardens to the front and rear. The south-facing front garden features a manicured lawn and a chipped area, whilst the rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and features a raised patio and plant bed.
