Property highlight: Beautifully presented
Well proportioned rooms
Built in 1930's with a stone frontage beneath a pitched slated roof, this handsome semi-detached villa is arranged over two floors, connected by an attractive timber staircase. The tastefully modernised and decorated interior offers an excellent family home with the benefits of gas fired central heating, wood burning stove and double glazed windows with PVC frames. The well-presented accommodation includes two fine reception rooms - both with original feature fireplace surrounds, three bedrooms, a spacious well fitted/equipped kitchen, and a luxury extensively tiled contemporary bathroom incorporating a shower fitting and curved screen over the bath. There is also a useful cloakroom and a large utility room created by the conversion of the original attached single garage. This area includes a fitted worktop and sink, with plumbing and ample space below for several electrical appliances. The room now faces south and features glazed sliding patio-style doors leading to the garden.
A timber ladder within the cupboard located off the first floor hallway gives access to a large extensively floored attic area which offers useful storage space
There is also a useful storage area at the front of the property which retains the original up and over garage door. This is approached from wrought iron double gates and a mono-blocked driveway. There is also an attractive front garden set behind a low level stone wall.
The large walled and fenced back garden faces in a southerly direction and can therefore enjoy long hours of sunshine. This provides a generous area of lawn, several trees, well stocked colourful borders, and a generous vegetable patch. There is also a cedar-framed Greenhouse to the rear. A sheltered patio area lies adjacent to the east side of the house and can be accessed form glazed double doors in the sitting room.
The property will be sold with fitted floor coverings, blinds and light fittings, together with the integral oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer.
The property is presently listed as band F
