The white, uPVC double glazed front door opens up into a welcoming, airy hallway. The laminate wood flooring makes for a durable, easy clean surface and flows through into the dining room. The freshly carpeted stairs lead up to the left, and there’s a very useful walk-in storage cupboard underneath them. There’s a radiator, central ceiling light and doors off to the living room, dining room and kitchen.
KITCHEN 9′ 2" x 7′ 10" (2.8m x 2.4m) The kitchen benefits from a half glazed uPVC back door and a large window over the sink, making it a bright and cheerful room. There’s a good selection of white fronted base units, with a black granite effect counter top and cream floor tiles. Under the window is a stainless steel, one and a half bowl sink with mixer tap, and on the opposite side is a four burner gas hob with grill and oven below.
There are white tiles above the counters, a combi boiler for the central heating, a radiator, central ceiling light point and several power sockets, and plenty of opportunity to add extra storage space.
DOWNSTAIRS WC/UTILITY ROOM 8′ 2" x 6′ 2" (2.5m x 1.9m) Through a small lobby off the kitchen is a nicely sized downstairs room, with white low-level WC and a pedestal sink. There’s space and plumbing for a washer and dryer, two uPVC windows, a radiator and light point.
The layout of the kitchen and downstairs bathroom also provides the new owners with the possibility of extending the kitchen through (subject to planning provisions) to maximise the useable area and creating a wonderful new space for cooking and entertaining.
LIVING ROOM 12′ 9" x 12′ 1" (3.9m x 3.7m) The newly carpeted living room has fully glazed, double uPVC doors which open out onto the garden, letting in lots of natural light. There’s a gas fire focal point with a white tiled surround and white mantlepiece, as well as a radiator, ceiling light, tv aerial and power sockets. It’s the ideal relaxing family room, just waiting for someone to add their character to.
DINING ROOM 12′ 1" x 9′ 10" (3.7m x 3.0m) The dining room benefits from the same durable laminate flooring as the hallway, and a nice wide window above the radiator for natural light. There’s plenty of space for a good sized dining table, although it would also make an ideal home office or second lounge. There are power sockets, a tv aerial, and a central ceiling light too.
LANDING With a south facing window and doors off to the bedrooms and bathroom.
BEDROOM 1 12′ 5" x 12′ 1" (3.8m x 3.7m) A generously sized room which over looks the front garden, this master bedroom is clean and airy, with neutral walls and fresh white paintwork. It just needs a few personal touches from the new owner to make it into their own relaxing space. There’s a ceiling light, power sockets, and a radiator under the south facing window.
BEDROOM 2 12′ 1" x 9′ 10" (3.7m x 3.0m) Looking out over the rear garden, the second bedroom is another good sized double room. Also freshly decorated, it’s ready to become your favourite room. There’s a tv aerial point, power sockets, a ceiling light and a radiator too.
BEDROOM 3 9′ 2" x 6′ 2" (2.8m x 1.9m) This single bedroom offers the same fresh, airy decor as the rest of the house, with radiator, power points and ceiling light. It makes a great single bedroom but would also be ideal as a nursery, home office, craft room or dressing room. A snug, cosy space that offers a peaceful, north facing view over the rear garden.
BATHROOM Benefitting from cream tiles and co-ordinated cushioned flooring, this family bathroom boasts a white suite consisting of pedestal wash basin, low-level WC and a bath with mixer taps and an electric shower over. The shower screen is a folding stainless steel and glass model, so it tucks neatly out of the way when you’d rather take a leisurely bath than a quick shower. The bathroom is situated over the stairs, which provides a rather useful shelf area – be it for toiletries or your collection of rare ferns and orchids! There’s also an opaque glazed uPVC window and ceiling light.
OUTSIDE SPACE FRONT GARDEN The property is reached through a wooden gate set in well trimmed privet hedges. A short path leads to the front door, then continues around the side of the house to provide access to the rear garden.
REAR GARDEN Laid mainly to lawn with a side hedge and some mature shrubs at the bottom of the garden, the area is completely enclosed with wooden fence panels, providing privacy and security. There’s plenty of space for the wheelie bins and a washing line, and there is no access to the road behind the property, which is great for security when toddlers or pets are playing outside. There’s also a side door which opens onto the path from the small lobby off the kitchen.
