Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen, Rear Hall, Cloakroom, Sitting Room/Bedroom Four, Three Principal Double Bedrooms, Bathroom, Games Room, Home Office/Bedroom Five.
The layout of the ground floor offers good flexibility as well as a semi open plan arrangement; the lounge to front has a large window onto Easter Street and a working open coal fire. A step up from the rear of lounge leads into the dining room which is a great space for family dining or entertaining and features a large triple window to the back. In turn this opens into the adjoining kitchen which is well fitted with a good range of wall and base units and currently houses a slot in range style cooker. Off the kitchen is a small rear hall with cloakroom off and external door giving access to the steps to the garden. Depending on requirements there is also the option of a second sitting room or alternatively a ground floor double bedroom if preferred; this is also a nicely proportioned room with window to the front, feature gas fire and connecting door at the rear to the kitchen. Usefully there is also a good sized utility room with great built in storage, space and provision for additional appliances and an external door giving direct access to/from the parking area.
The main staircase extends to the upper floor which provides three large double bedrooms; the main room lies peacefully to the rear with dual aspect windows and extensive built in storage. Bedrooms two and three are bright and airy rooms both with a southerly aspect to the front and ample room for free standing wardrobes. Off the landing to the rear is the family bathroom which benefits from a four piece suite including a bath and separate free standing shower.
A secondary staircase extends off the utility room and gives access to the games room and home office/bedroom. The games room is a fantastic space of excellent proportions; currently housing a snooker/table tennis table but with lots of opportunities for alternative uses depending on requirements. Extending off the rear of the games room is a peaceful home office with side facing window. This room would provide an ideal private home office which has good separation from the main family areas, although could be used as an additional bedroom if desired. A small rear hall off this room has an external door to the gardens.
The walled garden lies to the rear of the property at first floor level; accessed via external steps at the rear of the building or internally from the home office. A peaceful spot with complete privacy and fully enclosed, currently laid to lawn with a selection of fruit trees.
Garage, Parking & Outhouse
To the side of the property lies a gated driveway providing private off street parking. From here there is access to the garage via a sliding door and a useful external store/coal house.
