With its handsome brick exterior, crisp white windows and entrance door framed with awning and canopy, the house is set back from the road by a long flower bed.
The sheltered doorway draws you into an inner porch, with useful downstairs cloakroom to the side. Beyond, is the welcoming hallway with rooms off it that are far larger than you would expect.
Straight ahead, the kitchen/dining room has everything you need with plenty of fitted cupboards and counter surface, plumbing and space under the counter for a washing machine and an integrated oven. It's yellow cabinetry and warm slate grey flooring give it a pleasing contemporary feel and with ample room at the far end for a dining table and chairs it is a perfect family space.
An opening at the rear of the kitchen leads you into the living room which is flooded with light from its window and fully glazed French door that leads out onto the terrace beyond. The room is generously sized and big enough for furniture and large family sofas to relax in at the end of long busy days.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor you reach three good sized bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.
Outside at the rear is a secluded and private courtyard garden ideal for lazy summer afternoon BBQs or growing your own vegetables. It also provides direct access to the garage and off street parking space behind.
