Why buy this home?
Located on Billington Park, which is an established, residential area ideal for raising a family as local schools, parks and a Co-op shop are within walking distance. The development also provides easy road access to the A505 and junction 11A of the M1 so is also a great place to live if commuting to work by car.
When entering the property, you are welcomed by a spacious hallway which is the ideal place to hang your coats and leave your shoes. Amtico flooring makes for easy cleaning if any muddy or wet footprints are left after trips to the one of the many parks or playing fields near to the property.
On the left-hand side of the entrance hall, you will find the impeccably presented lounge which is warm and inviting. It has a window to the front and French doors leading out to the garden, which allow natural light to flow through it. The Amtico flooring continues from the hallway, this again provides easy cleaning for any spills or accidents from children that may occur. There is also an electric fireplace which creates a piece of character in what is a modern house throughout.
Opposite the entrance to the lounge is the kitchen/diner where natural light is again abundant due to the dual aspect windows. There is space to easily fit a six-seater dining table for family meals and wall and base units are fitted to three of the walls providing lots of storage and worktop space. Integral appliances in the kitchen consist of a dishwasher, oven and grill, gas hob and cooker hood.
Off the kitchen there is a utility room which has space for a fridge/freezer and a washing machine, keeping these appliances from taking up space in the kitchen. There is also further storage provided from an understairs cupboard and an additional base unit which is ideal for storing your cleaning products.
The accommodation on the ground floor is completed by a W/C which has a toilet, wash hand basin with vanity unit underneath and a radiator.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all of which are well-proportioned. As the two smaller rooms are similar in size, this should not cause too many disagreements when deciding what child gets which room! The main bedroom has a large, fitted wardrobe situated in the corner and the generous en-suite finishes it perfectly.
The family bathroom is spacious and gives more than enough room when bathing children. Continuing the theme from the rest of the property it is in superb condition and consists of a bath with shower attachment, a wash hand basin, toilet and a radiator.
The rear garden is a lovely size and has been tastefully landscaped. The lawn area is surrounded by flower beds and mature trees to the rear provide privacy. There is a choice of patios areas perfect for alfresco dining and there is access to the garage from the garden. There are two gates from the garden with one providing access to the front of the property and the other gate leading to the parking.
Driveway parking is available for up to three vehicles in front of the garage. The garage has power and lighting and additional eaves storage which is a great place to keep camping equipment or summer items being stored over the colder months.
