What we like
The home offers larger than average rooms here on Willow lane. From the spacious hallway through to the open plan kitchen diner and bedrooms upstairs, two of which are doubles, this home is a great size for a young family to start out on the property ladder.
As you step through the spacious hallway you will find a handy storage cupboard under the stairs and the stairs to the first floor. To the right, you are into the dining room which is open plan to the kitchen. Double wooden doors separate the living room from the dining room room but there is the option there to have the doors open to have all 3 rooms flowing into one another. The living room offers a lovely gas effect fire sitting in beautiful tiles and an oak effect fireplace. There is also a bay window in the living room giving the room a much bigger feel. Beige carpet runs throughout. The dining room is open plan to the kitchen. Laminate flooring runs through both rooms and a large window allows the light to beam through the window creating a light airey space to sit and eat dinner. The kitchen consists of high cream gloss units. There is plumbing for a washing machine and a gas hob/electric oven sit central to the kitchen units. White splash back tiling compliments the cream units and laminate flooring. Here you can also gain access to the rear of the garden.
As you reach the top of the stairs you will find a spacious landing where the current owner has a chair to add a little character to the space. The bathroom is a three piece bathroom suite in white with an overhead shower. Grey tiles makes for a lovely contrast to the bathroom suite and the floor to ceiling tiling which is also in white giving a lovely bright feel to the room. A perfect place to sit and soak. Bedroom one is a great size at the front of the property. It is a double and well proportioned with the neutral carpet running off the hallway landing. We think it would be a great idea to have sliding doors either side of the chimney breast to create a built in wardrobe. What do you think? The second bedroom is again a double to the rear of the home and is carpeted. This room looks over the garden area and is light and bright. The third room is to the front and is a single. Laminate flooring runs through this room.
Once you have accessed the garden from the kitchen you will find a patio area on dual level. A lovely space to sit and play with the children. Plants and shrubbery will brighten the area up and create a nice space to relax with he family.
