The living space
Ashbourne Drive is a quirky two bed home. Most people treat the rear door as their main entrance, so this is where we will begin.
Enter from the rear (it's the closest door to your private parking space) into the hallway. There is space hang up your coat. You'll find useful storage under the stairs. Turn right into the modern L-shaped kitchen. The light oak styled kitchen is complemented by darker stone effect worksurfaces and stylish tiled splashbacks. The view from the kitchen is superb.
Step up to the spacious lounge which features a dark oak laminate floor. The decor is modern in pale grey. An electric fire creates a warming focal point. The owner chose to have a curved sofa which perfectly defines a cosy sitting area and separate are to dine. Set off the lounge is the front entrance porch which leads out the garden and unique pedestrian location!
The bedrooms and bathroom
