SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This substantial home sits on an enviable corner plot of a residential road hugely popular with families and professionals alike as it is in walking distance of excellent schools and superb transport links.
It has plenty of kerb appeal with its bay windows, handsome red brick exterior and generous block brick driveway which is safely enclosed on all sides by smart black metal railings.
As you step into the immaculate hallway it is immediately apparent that the owner's eye for detail has created a relaxing space. Its neutral tones and contemporary accents are complimented by the warmth of the wooden floor while a pretty internal window into the living room adds interest and light.
The study to the right is a homeworker's dream with not one but two streamlined desk units with plenty of additional contemporary wall cupboards to keep the space clutter free.
On the opposite side of the hall the living/dining room is bright and spacious and has been decorated to an impeccable standard with its neutral palette, wooden flooring and double aspect windows creating a tranquil space. It has plenty of room for family sofas to curl up in, in front of the wood burning stove in the colder months. The far end of the room enjoys views over the garden framed by French doors which can lie open on lazy summer days, offering a perfect dining experience.
At the end of the hallway, with a useful guest cloakroom behind, is the stylish and stream lined kitchen/breakfast room. It is well designed with plenty of wooden effect cabinetry topped off with contemporary work tops, delivering a fantastic space for both family and entertaining.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are five bedrooms, three of which are large doubles, all with graceful proportions that give a very tranquil feeling.
Across the landing is the modern family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. A front aspect window reflects light off its white fittings and contemporary tiles for a soothing and romantic bathing experience.
The fifth bedroom, which is currently set up as a play room with two walls of useful fitted cupboards, leads into an en-suite shower room, its soothing tones making it a restful retreat.
Outside the large sunny rear garden has been cleverly designed to offer a high level of privacy with a paved terrace perfect for alfresco dining and a large lawned area for the kids to play happily on. The lawn is bordered on all sides by close boarded fencing fronted by mature shrubs, trees and flowers. It is fully enclosed offering a sanctuary for children whilst a summer house and large garage at the rear offer great storage space. The garage can be accessed by a side gate to the road beside and has the potential to house a car.
There is also fantastic development opportunity for a loft conversion or rear extension and redevelopment of the large garage/workshop, subject to the usual planning consents, of course.
This fabulous home delivers a family friendly contemporary style of living in a sought after location making it perfect for families with professional needs. A must see!
