What we like
"You won't find many home with 3 generous bedrooms and 2 bathrooms especially at this price. It's a superb home. We love the bathroom with it's roll top bath. What do you think?"
The ground floor
As you step inside this home from the main entrance at the front you will find yourself in the hallway which will instantly make you feel at home. Access from here can be gained to both reception rooms and the stairs can be found to the far end.
Once you are inside the main living room you will see that the owners have tastefully decorated this space in a contemporary fashion and the exposed wooden floor adds a little character and charm. The large bay window helps to create a bright and airy feel and looks out onto the front of the street. A built in cupboard to the left hand side of the chimney breast hides away the meters for the home.
The dining room is separate to the living room and is the perfect place where you could sit down and enjoy your evening meals with family and friends. The modern wall mounted electric fire gives off a cosy warm glow and can be remote control operated. This room looks out into the rear yard and also has built in shelving and storage to one side of the chimney breast. Access to the kitchen and ground floor shower room can be gained from this room also.
The kitchen has been fitted with a great range of built in storage and there is ample work space for those who love to cook. The units themselves have recently been updated by the owners and they have also tiled the floor for ease of cleaning. Plenty of space is on offer for the expected white goods and there is a built in double electric oven with a hob and extractor fan above. From the stainless steel sink unit there is a double glazed window which looks into the yard at the rear and access to the outside space can also be gained from this room.
Finally to the ground floor there is a rather handy shower room. This space has been fitted with a three piece suite and has been fully tiled to complement. A frosted double glazed window also allows in some natural light from the side elevation.
The upper floors
Once you are up to the first floor level you will see that the landing has access to two of the three bedrooms the home offers and the bathroom also. A further flight of stairs leads you up to the top floor.
The master bedroom can be found to the front of the home and has been very tastefully decorated with a feature wall to give a modern feel. Ample light comes in thanks to the large double glazed window and there is loads of space for all the furniture you would expect to have. The second bedroom is a rather generous sized room which we feel would make the perfect children's room or maybe even a space for your guests to stay. The bathroom has been recently fitted and is rather stylish we must say. The free standing bath is the main focal point and there is a hand wash basin and low flush wc. The room has been partially tiled and has a decorative border to give a classy finish and there is a frosted double glazed window to the side elevation.
Finally up on the top floor you will discover the third double bedroom which is a very spacious room indeed. The real bonus of this room is the fact there is a separate walk in wardrobe and study area which makes it ideal for a teenager. There is a double glazed window to the rear elevation whilst to the front there is a double glazed Velux window.
Outside the home
To the front of the home there is a small courtyard style area with walled boundaries and gated access which leads you to the main entrance. Once you are round to the rear of the property there is an enclosed and private yard where you can sit and relax during the warmer months. Gated access leads you out to the rear service lane.
