Why buy this home?

Whether you approach the property from the top or the bottom of the road, you will notice that every home on the street is different making it a truly unique place to live.

Entering the property, the first of the three reception rooms and the W/C are off the spacious entrance hall. The ground floor accommodation is versatile but due to the dual aspect windows and feature fireplace, this reception room would make a wonderful room in which to hideaway and read a book whilst enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Alternatively, it would also make a fantastic children's playroom as you could close the door and almost forget it is there at the end of the day. The W/C is fitted with a toilet, a wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.

Leading on from the entrance hall is the kitchen/breakfast room where your eyes are immediately drawn to the exposed beams on the ceiling. The country style units, work tops and a ceramic sink compliment the home perfectly and there is space for a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and a freestanding oven with an integral cooker hood above it. Ceramic floor tiles add to the country style and make cleaning up any spills easy. There is space for a breakfast table ideal for less formal meals and a door leading out to the garden provides the perfect place for bringing in a wet dog or children with muddy boots.

The dining room is large enough to easily fit a six-seater table for family meals or if entertaining friends. What is believed to be an original fireplace adds yet more character and there are stairs which lead down to the cellar.

Currently being used as a utility area, the cellar has also previously been used as a gym but would also make a great games or craft room should the new owner require one.

The accommodation downstairs is completed by a lounge which is a fantastic space to catch up with the family after a long day or simply just chill out in front of the TV. Ceramic wood effect tiles and more exposed beams continue the country cottage feel but undoubtedly the wood burner is the star of the show. The current owner has spent many evenings entertaining friends and family just sat in front of the fire. There is a large window to the side and French doors leading out to the rear garden allow light to flow through the room.

Upstairs, all the accommodation is accessed via the wrap around landing which has both an airing cupboard and an additional large storage cupboard.

Turning right at the stop of the stairs, the first bedroom you come to is the third bedroom which takes a double, has a fitted wardrobe and another feature fireplace. Following the landing around, the next room you arrive at is the bathroom which is complete with a four-piece suite including a sunken bath, a shower cubicle with electric shower, a wash hand basin and a W/C. Tiled walls and flooring make cleaning a doddle and a heated towel rail is a great place for drying wet towels. There is a study next, a perfect space for someone now working from home more. The second bedroom is the last room on this side of the home and it is a fantastic size, comfortably taking a kingsize bed. It offers flexibility when deciding how to position your furniture and has a double fitted wardrobe with sliding door. Back to the top of the stairs but now turning left, the main bedroom has not one but two fitted wardrobes with sliding doors and a dressing area. It also overlooks the rear garden. This room is serviced by a fully tiled en-suite which has a shower cubicle, a wash hand basin and a W/C.

Outside, the rear garden is a brilliant size and is a great space for a keen gardener to enjoy or for children to let off steam. A large, gravelled area provides additional parking and leads on to a lawned area enclosed by mature shrubs and trees. There is also an additional patio area where you could have a table and chairs to enjoy meals or a BBQ in the summer. At the front of the home, there is driveway parking, and a swing gate leads you directly to the rear garden.
