Tucked away on a quiet section of a popular modern development, is this well presented home, perfect for someone looking to start their property journey. It is located within walking distance of Astral Lake as well as Greenleas Lower School and Grovebury Retail Park.
The entrance hall has stairs leading up to the first floor and doors leading to the living room and a W/C.
The W/C is decorated with sage green paint and the owners have added panel effect, creating a period feel.
The light and airy living room is a great size and the space is currently utilised brilliantly. There is a large corner sofa which provides the perfect place to relax after a long day and an electric log burner adds character to a modern home. If you preferred a lounge/diner as opposed to a kitchen/diner then the size of the room would allow this. Wooden effect Amtico Spacia flooring, which is easy to clean and maintain, flows from the living room into the kitchen/diner.
The kitchen/diner looks out over the garden. It’s fitted with wall and base units and has a built in washing machine, dishwasher, oven and gas hob while there is space for a fridge freezer. The dining area has a round table which works perfectly for the size of the room and French doors lead out on to the garden.
By new build standards, the garden is a fantastic size and beautifully presented making it a wonderful place to entertain friends and family. There is a patio area where you can position your garden furniture to enjoy the sunshine. A path leads you alongside a lawn which has flower borders to a further patio which is where a shed currently is. This area would be the perfect place to erect a home office if you required one.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms are nearly identical in size therefore giving you the choice of having the main bedroom at the front or back of the home. The bedroom at the front has a large storage cupboard so this may be the preferred main bedroom.
The bathroom has the same Amtico flooring as downstairs as well as contemporary grey tiling, giving a mix of modern and traditional. It is fitted with a bathtub with a shower over it, a wash hand basin and a W/C.
At the front of the home, there is allocated parking for two cars.
