SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Tucked away in a leafy corner of its quiet residential cul-de-sac, this fantastic family home`s curved brick wall and wooden gates set it back from the street, providing off street parking for two cars.
It has a smart red brick and part hung tile exterior with wide original leaded bay windows.
A part stained glass door opens into a wide entrance hallway. An under stairs open storage space has plenty of space for coats and shoes to keep the hallway clutter free.
To the right, the spacious living room`s large bay window which overlooks the street draws light into the room. It is a welcoming space with wooden flooring and a stone surround fireplace enclosing a gas fire which adds warmth.
Across the hallway bi-folding wooden doors open to a second reception room currently used as a music room but which would also make a perfect play room or home office.
The kitchen, at the rear of the hall is light and spacious with plenty of cupboards and worktop space and an integrated range oven and 8 ring gas hob set into its island. There is ample room for additional appliances whilst the dimensions of the room cleverly define a dining area with ample space for a table and chairs, a focal fireplace and alcove shelving to the side.
Off the kitchen is a separate spacious utility area with a useful guest cloakroom and access into the spacious conservatory at the rear.
The fabulous glazed conservatory is a real show stopper both in terms of its impressive size and creative design. Accessed directly off the kitchen/dining room and overlooking the garden it brings the outside in offering comfort and play in equal measure as you are warmed by the sun.
Returning to the hallway, the carpeted stairs take you up to a wide landing with rooms running off it on both sides.
The master bedroom, set to the front of the house, has a wall of fitted wardrobes, a generous bay window and a spacious en-suite which add to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
There are three further bedrooms on this floor, all beautifully presented, spacious and light. The family bathroom is fresh and modern with a bath with shower above, heated towel rail and a Velux ceiling window bringing in lots of natural light.
A further flight of stairs take you up to the fifth bedroom whose honey coloured wooden floor is dappled with light from its dual aspect Velux ceiling windows. It is a generous sized room with plenty of eaves storage, even on its landing.
At the rear of the garden, a stone terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, sits beside a wooden summer house providing respite from the midday sun or a playhouse for the kids. A paved curved pathway meanders down the side of the lawn edging pretty flower beds stocked with mature plants, trees and flowers. It carries on up the side of the house giving easy access to the front garden and street beyond.
This substantial family home, set on a popular residential street only a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links, is ideal for a growing family. A must see!
