This fantastic home sits on a sought-after residential road hugely popular with families and professionals alike as it is in walking distance of excellent schools and superb transport links.
Set back from the road by a low brick wall with an area of lawn behind, an off-street driveway to the side fronts the detached garage, with a pathway leading to the front door.
The light and spacious hallway has a useful guest cloakroom, big enough to turn into a wet room, and an under stairs cupboard, to keep the space clutter free.
On the right is the living/dining room with a front aspect square bay window, framing the front garden view. A brick enclosed fireplace adds character and warmth in the colder months and rear glazed doors deliver glorious garden and uninterrupted woodland views.
Next door the large kitchen delivers wonderful cooking facilities with plenty of cabinets providing ample storage space top and bottom. A sink is placed under the window letting you watch the children play as you prepare dinner.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, which lead off the wide landing.
A family bathroom with shower over the bath completes the first floor.
Outside, a broad garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature hedging, shrubs and trees framing its boundaries. It is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for children and pets and has fantastic woodland views to the rear, making it a very private space. A raised decked terrace sits at the rear of the house, perfect for relaxing on in the summer months.
A single garage with store room behind provide ample storage space.
This bright welcoming home is nicely decorated enabling you to move in straight away. It is also, however, a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future. A must see!
