Introduction

The accommodation has been extended at the rear to provide a large dining/sitting room that could also be utilised as a bed/sitting room. This room links to the additional kitchen that has a separate entrance door allowing for rental income via air B & B or a tenant. Conversely it could also provide a small annexe or a work from home environment. The flexible layout is arranged over three half storeys and will appeal to a wide range of buyers. The level driveway and garage allow off road parking and the tiered southerly facing garden has an attractive leafy outlook.

Description

The side entrance door opens to the hallway that has a useful storage cupboard and laminate wood flooring. Steps lead up to the half landing and doors allow access to the lounge and kitchen. Of generous proportions, the lounge features a wide front aspect window that enjoys a leafy outlook. The stone fireplace is a pleasing focal point for the room and has an adjacent gas point and a wood clad chimney breast. Open book shelves and two wall mounted uplighters are installed. The kitchen comprises a range of dated wall and base units that have complementary work surfaces that incorporate a stainless steel single drainer sink unit with a mixer tap. A frosted side elevation window and a front aspect window ensure excellent natural light whilst there are fully tiled walls and a wood clad ceiling. Fitted appliances include a double oven/grill with a four ring electric hob and a cooker hood over. There is space for a fridge, plumbing for a washing machine, a wall mounted boiler and recessed low level wooden shelves.

The half landing has a side aspect window and stairs ascend to the top floor. The bathroom comprises the original three piece suite and would benefit from replacement. The outstanding feature of the property is the extended dining/sitting room that is an exceptional size and has a view towards the rear garden. A door links to the second kitchen that has a separate entrance door that provides ideal access for tenants, air B & B guests or a work from home environment. There is a range of dated wall and base units with a stainless steel single drainer sink unit with a mixer tap. Dual aspect side and rear windows allow natural light and there is a freestanding cooker and a fridge.

On the top floor the landing has a side aspect window and the airing cupboard houses the lagged hot water cylinder, electric immersion heater and shelving. The large master bedroom is well proportioned with a wide front facing window that has a leafy outlook. There is a pedestal wash hand basin, splashback, mirror and shaver socket together with a range of fitted drawers, a dressing table and overhead cupboards. A number of houses in the street have created an additional bedroom by extending into the wardrobes and roof space that adorn one entire wall and (STP) there may be similar scope here. The other bedroom is larger than average with a pleasing front outlook.

The level driveway allows off road parking and the detached single garage has a side pedestrian door with power and light.

A small wooded area is found towards the rear boundary.
