This home has been cleverly extended and modernised by the current owners to create a bright, stylish family friendly house that certainly delivers the wow factor.
A pretty period exterior of red brick, painted render and canopied porch is set back from the road by a low brick wall with a smart off-street parking space to the side.
The front door opens into a welcoming hallway with a large utility room with a useful shower cubicle and cloakroom facilities straight ahead.

Towards the rear is the fantastic kitchen/dining room with snug which delivers exceptional cooking, dining and entertaining space. It is beautifully finished with sun streaming in through an abundance of windows making patterns of light on its warm wooden effect flooring. A rear wall of bi fold doors and side French windows extend the living space into the garden in the warmer months letting you watch the children safely play as you prepare diner.
A family room in the lower ground floor doubles as a home office and even a bedroom for visiting guests.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor split landing there are three bedrooms which all have large windows bringing in lots of natural light and all with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling.
The family bathroom is on the right with its modern white suite, shower over bath and heated towel rail to complete the luxury feel. A deep storage cupboard with heated bar keeps towels and laundry lovely and warm.
