This handsome double bay fronted house is touchingly close to the town's restaurants, shops, and cafes and within a short walk of the mainline station and sought-after schools.

A smart painted exterior with a picket fence and hedges behind draws you up a pathway to the front entrance door, neatly placed at the side.

Stepping into the hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom, the living room is on the right. A deep bay window overlooking the street floods the room with light while fitted cupboards and open bookshelves frame the chimney breast and provide useful storage. A period fireplace with wooden mantle adds character and warmth in the colder months.

Behind is the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen. It has plenty of room for a table and chairs, a fitted alcove cupboard and a large window brightening dining experiences.

Opening to the rear is the kitchen, its open plan aspect to the dining room enabling you to chat to family and friends as you prepare dinner. Plenty of wooden effect units topped with work surfaces are separated by the integrated oven and space and plumbing for additional appliances. A door to the side gives garden access while the rear window is cleverly placed above the sink bringing in light and views as you wash up.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two bedrooms, both generous doubles, and a home office.

The principal bedroom at the front extends the width of the house and its graceful proportions and bay window give a very tranquil feeling.

The bathroom with a panel enclosed bath and shower over completes the floor.

This fantastic home has the advantage of a sunny low maintenance rear garden that is a safe sanctuary for children and pets, with a raised area of lawn and a block brick terrace at the rear of the house, perfect for summer dining. It is a peaceful, green oasis in the centre of town.

This fabulous period home with its spacious rooms and beautiful garden benefits from its proximity to the town, parks, and mainline station. A must see!
