Set back from the road by a low wall with hedging above for added privacy, this home's handsome red brick exterior provides plenty of kerb appeal.
The smart entrance door, neatly positioned to the side of the house, welcomes you in.
To the left is the charming living room, its bay window flooding the room with light. A feature fireplace frames the chimney breast and the room's generous size makes it big enough for furniture and large family sofas to relax in.
Across the hallway is the fantastic kitchen/dining room with its wooden flooring and large window offering a perfect dining experience.
The stylish and streamlined kitchen has plenty of cream units which contrast beautifully with its dark granite work tops. There is a built in Neff dishwasher and microwave and space for a range oven and a fridge/freezer. The spacious room feels very light with its double aspect windows and it conveniently provides access into the utility room and cloakroom behind.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms all of which have large windows bringing in lots of natural light. The principle bedroom at the front extends the width of the house and its décor, fitted wardrobes and graceful proportions give a very tranquil feeling.
The modern family bathroom with shower over the bath completes the floor.
Outside to the rear of the kitchen is an enclosed paved terrace perfect for relaxing in the southerly sun. A set of steps lead down to a neat garden laid mainly to lawn with a further paved terrace for summer entertaining and a wooden shed for storage. It is a safe sanctuary for children and pets.
This graceful period home oozes Victorian charm whilst delivering a family friendly contemporary style of living. A must see!
