Arranged over three floors and set back from the road by a low brick wall with planting behind, this beautiful double bay fronted house delivers plenty of kerb appeal, on an enviable corner plot.
Perfectly positioned, it is in walking distance of excellent schools, local amenities, and superb transport links but you also benefit from the tranquil village offerings of the cricket green, woodland walks, and open countryside nearby.
The part glazed entrance door welcomes you into a bright hallway, its warm wooden effect flooring stretching to the rear and linking the rooms seamlessly.
First on the left is the spacious living room, flooded with light from its front bay window. It has plenty of room for deep sofas, fitted alcove cabinetry for storage and display and a handsome fireplace to add character and warmth.
Behind is the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, with a large window bringing in garden views as you dine.
The stylish kitchen is a visual delight with Shaker style units that contrast beautifully with its wooden work tops and painted walls. There are curved corner cabinets and pan drawers to maximise storage space and a sink cleverly placed under the large window. Integrated appliances such as an under counter fridge and freezer, oven, induction hob and slimline dishwasher deliver all your culinary needs.
Opening to the rear is a wonderful multipurpose room, with access into the garden and the cloakroom at the back. There is a wooden breakfast bar with room for two bar stools, space and plumbing for an appliance and cupboards for storage.
Returning to the hallway, a substantial sized family room on the lower ground floor can double as an additional reception space and a bedroom for family members or visiting guests.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles and the smallest of which, currently set up as a home office, would make the perfect nursery too.
The large family bathroom with a shower cubicle and panel enclosed double ended bath, has two windows bringing in lots of natural light.
The beautiful rear garden is a green oasis. It is cleverly zoned with a mix of block brick and gravelled seating areas, perfect for summer entertaining, and an area of lawn which is flanked by shaped flower beds stocked with a variety of flowers and plants. A large tree provides a natural canopy and a gravelled area to the side offers bin storage space and street access.
This bright, spacious home is in a sought-after location with all your first-class schooling, shops, and transport needs on your doorstep, making it the perfect home. A must see!
