It is bright and spacious and has been decorated to an impeccable standard with its neutral palette, wooden flooring and cream carpets flowing throughout the property creating a tranquil space.
As you step into the immaculate hallway the owner`s ability to beautifully blend modern finishes with traditional features is immediately apparent.
To the left light pours into the spacious reception room through its bay window overlooking the residential street. It is an exceptionally welcoming space with stylish décor, bespoke Neptune alcove bookcases and an open fireplace housing a cream wood burning stove.
At the end of the hallway, is the stunning kitchen/breakfast room. It is linked seamlessly by its engineered oak wooden flooring, its open plan layout making it a fantastic space for both family living and entertaining.
The stylish and stream lined kitchen is well designed with plenty of bespoke Neptune cabinetry topped off with Silestone work tops. The room is dappled with light from the French doors at the rear which cleverly open to extend the living space into the garden in the warmer months. Integrated appliances such as the Neff dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and halogen hob make it a cook`s dream.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms all with pretty period fireplaces and graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling. The bedroom at the rear has a very useful utility cupboard with space and plumbing for appliances.
Across the landing is the modern family bathroom with a roll top bath. A side aspect window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary floor tiles for a soothing bathing experience.
Up a further flight of stairs to the second floor is the master bedroom suite. Its contrasting paint tones, wooden floor and en-suite make it a romantic and restful retreat.
Outside the garden`s block brick courtyard is bordered on all sides by mature plants climbing up the wooden fencing. It is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children with plenty of room for a table and chairs for summer entertaining.
