Leading from the hallway, the lounge is at the front of the house, and features a large window which maximises the natural daylight. A wood burning stove will make for cosy winter evenings as you gather together as a family at the end of the working day. With its neutral palette, you can make this space as bright or as traditional as suits your style. Although the dining room is open plan to the lounge, it’s away from the main room, creating a separate space, large enough to accommodate a dining table for evenings wining and dining with friends and family.
The door through into the kitchen means no more being remote from your guests when hosting. Double doors at the far end of the dining area lead out to the garden room, a perfect place to escape with a cuppa and a book – or a play area for the younger members of the family.
The kitchen, finished in modern light oak, boasts an abundance of storage and worktop space. Mealtimes will be a delight as you cook for the family on the built-in gas hob and integrated fan assisted oven with an integrated microwave above But also the integrated dishwasher is a real benefit too. With space for a kitchen table, mealtimes will soon become the bustling hub of your new home. The adjacent utility room has spaces for a washing machine and tumble drier, as well as housing a double upright fridge/freezer, more storage units and door access to the garden. A ground-floor WC and integrated garage complete the ground floor of this property.
Stairs from the hallway take us up to the first-floor landing, where there are three double bedrooms. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have fitted wardrobes. Bedroom three is currently used as an office.The family bathroom features a large walk-in shower cubicle, and ample storage with built-in mirror-fronted cupboards along an entire wall.
To the front of the property, a large block-paved drive suitable for multiple vehicles is surrounded by hedging for privacy.
A gate takes us through to the rear of the house, where you’ll find the family-sized garden. Ideal for summer days and barbecues, there’s a patio area, big enough to house a table and chairs. A pathway around the edge of the lawn leads to a wooden summerhouse/shed, and a further seating area at the end of the garden, beneath a wooden arbour. With the lawn bordered with shrubs, you’ll be able to spend more time enjoying this garden than maintaining it.
