What we like...
We really like the living room in this home. The fact the room is spacious gives you plenty of space to style the room however you would like. The feature fireplace to the centre of the room creates a lovely feel and great focal point which will be ideal to cosy up in front of during the evenings.
A little about the home
The entrance opens into the hall which has access to all the rooms available in the home. Buyers will find that the lounge is a generous size room which has space for all the furniture you will require. The kitchen offers great storage for all your bits and pieces and open plan to this room there is a conservatory which the owners use as a dining space.
Both bedrooms are double rooms with the master being to the rear of the home and there is of course a three piece bathroom suite with built in storage on offer. The home has been double glazed throughout and has gas central heating also. Externally buyers will find that there are low maintenance gardens and also a driveway to the front of the home. The owners have had plans drawn up to convert the spacious loft area although planning would be needed if this is something you were interested in doing.
The living accommodation
The main entrance to the side of the home opens up into the hallway which offers space to store your coats and access to all the rooms available. There is also a hatch which opens up into the generous sized loft space. The main living room is a generous sized space where all the family can sit and relax after a long hard days work. The main focal point of the room has to be the feature fireplace which has a living flame coal effect gas fire set inside to create a lovely warm glow in the evenings. The room has been tastefully decorated and offers a large double glazed window to the front elevation.
Once you are through to the kitchen which is at the far end of the hallway you will discover a great sized room with loads of built in storage on offer. There is also plenty of work space for those who love to cook. Space is available for all the white goods you will require and there is also room for a gas cooker if you so wish. The kitchen is open plan to the conservatory which the owners currently use as a dining area which is very handy being just off the kitchen. However some buyers may choose to use this space as a further sitting area where you can relax and look out over your private rear garden.
Bedrooms and bathroom
The master bedroom can be found to the rear of the home with a large double glazed window looking onto the low maintenance garden. This generous sized double room has been well presented and decorated in a contemporary manor. As you would expect there is ample room for all the furniture you would require.
The second bedroom can also accommodate a double bed and looks out over the front of the home. This room is currently used as a guest room and like the master, has been decorated in a modern fashion. Finally inside there is the bathroom which buyers will see has been fitted with a three piece suite in white. Above the bath there is a shower to give you the best of both worlds and the room has been partially tiled along with having a full height built in storage cupboard for all your towels and bedding etc.
To the front of the home you will immediately see that the garden area has been kept low maintenance with planted borders to add a little colour throughout the summer months. A driveway leads you down to the side of the home and gated access at the far end of the drive leads you through to the rear garden.
The rear garden is once again nice and easy to look after with a paved patio area and a decked seating area allowing you a private space to sit out and relax during the warmer months. This would be the perfect space to enjoy a summer time BBQ with your family and friends when they come to visit.
