This beautiful 1930s four bedroom house, stylish with its generous proportions and abundance of natural light, has been given a modern-day twist, to deliver a family friendly style of living with approved planning permission to extend.
The exciting development opportunity to extend the home comes from the available space. Additionally, there is a site ready for a garden studio or home office/gym for a design of the buyers choice.
Distinctive square bay windows, a canopied entrance door and a smart walled front garden, deliver plenty of kerb appeal. There is an attached garage sitting neatly to the side offering great storage space and a permanent road parking space to the front.
A part opaque glazed door welcomes you into the hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom. The family friendly wooden floor extends the entire ground floor.
First on the left is the elegant living room which is flooded with light from its chic bay shuttered window. There is plenty of room for large sofas and a focal fireplace with Charnwood wood and multi-fuel burning stove adds warmth in the colder months.
Behind is the kitchen/dining room that stretches the width of the house. Sleek glossy cabinetry topped with contrasting granite worktops offer fabulous cooking facilities and a separate utility room provides a space to organise and keeps the space clutter free. The spacious layout lets you chat to family and friends as you prepare dinner, with a breakfast bar for your morning coffee and a well defined dining space for a large table and chairs.
To the rear the conservatory is wonderfully bright due to its expanse of windows, letting you sit in the sun and relax whilst keeping an eye on the children playing in the fully enclosed garden. The paved terrace area directly outside makes it perfect for evening entertainment.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, all with large windows drawing in lots of natural light.
The bathroom at the front, with a white and chrome bathroom suite has a shower over its bath. Mirrored cabinets give ample storage to keep the bathroom looking sharp.
A further flight of stairs leads you up to the second floor's impressive principal bedroom. Warm wooden flooring, echoed from the ground floor and triple aspect windows, including a beautiful circular window, make it a romantic and restful retreat.
Outside the sunny garden is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for children and pets and is mainly laid to lawn, whilst a paved terrace sits at the rear of the house for summer dining. It is full of character and interest with a variety of trees, plants and stocked flower beds, a decked terrace, greenhouse, new wooden shed and front street access. This leads to the large area ready and prepared for the buyer's garden studio or home office/gym of choice.
This is a bright and spacious home on a road that is in walking distance of excellent schools, local amenities and superb transport links known for a great sense of community. A must see!
