Sat elevated and set back from the road by a block brick drive providing ample off-road parking, this home is a stone`s throw from playing fields, local shops, excellent schools and superb transport links.
A pathway winds you through the neat front lawn and colourful flower bed behind to the part glazed front door that welcomes you into this wonderful detached family home.
The hallway, with a useful under stairs cupboard keeping the space clutter free, has rooms running off it at all angles.
The bright sitting room opens off to the left with natural light flooding in through its large window and a gas fire adding character and warmth in the colder months.
Opposite, the dining room has plenty of space for a table and chairs for family dinners or entertaining and conveniently placed behind is a guest cloakroom.
The study at the rear provides a quiet retreat for home working with a door giving access to the rear garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room at the back delivers wonderful cooking facilities with plenty of eye and base level units and integrated appliances. For family and entertaining, there is tons of space for both dining and living and there is a defined open space at the far end of the room for a table and chairs.
A part glazed door leads out into the conservatory with its expanse of windows bringing views of the garden in, letting you sit in the sun and relax whilst keeping an eye on the children playing in the garden.
A useful utility room with front access onto the driveway is ideal for muddy boots or paws and provides housing for extra appliances.
The first floor boasts four great bedrooms which lead off the spacious landing. The master bedroom has an entire wall of fitted wardrobes. There is a modern bathroom with crisp white fittings while a separate shower room completes the first floor.
Outside a sunny and broad garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs and trees framing its boundaries. A paved terrace that borders the house and raised decked areas at the side and rear offer perfect summer evening alfresco dining or entertaining space.
This bright welcoming home is nicely decorated enabling you to move in straight away. It is also, however, a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future. A must see!
