What we like...
We have to say we were surprised at the space this home offers. Not only are both reception rooms a wonderful size but all three bedrooms are also very spacious. This could make the perfect family home you have been searching for and that's why we love it!
A little about the home
This semi detached family home offers so much space. Once inside you will find the hallway offers a fantastic staircase which leads you up to the first floor and there is a handy ground floor wc which can also be accessed. Both reception rooms are a brilliant size with a lounge to the front and dining room to the rear. The ground floor also features a kitchen with its own breakfast bar and pantry style walk in cupboard.
Once upstairs you will see that the landing has access to all the rooms available with three generous sized bedrooms, a shower room and also a separate wc. Outside there are well maintained gardens, a driveway providing off street parking and a garage with an electric door. There is also storage underneath the home which can be accessed from the rear garden.
Ground floor rooms
As you step inside this home you will firstly find yourself in the hallway which has a rather grand feel to it. The stairs lead you up to the first floor level and offers storage below for all your bits and pieces you wish to hide away. The hallway also has access to a handy ground floor wc and doors opening to all the ground floor rooms.
To the front of the home there is a great sized living room which has been used as a living room and the main focal point of this room is the open working fire which will be lovely during the colder months. The room has a really bright and airy feel thanks to the large window overlooking the garden at the front. The dining room is separate to the lounge and could even be used as another sitting room if needed. To the centre of the room there is a gas fire which is set into the chimney breast. This room also features a door which open out to the rear garden which will be ideal during those summer months.
The kitchen is a brilliant size with ample built in storage on offer. For those who love to cook there is also plenty of work space on offer along with a handy breakfast bar where you can sit and enjoy your morning snack. The kitchen itself also has room for all the white goods you would expect and space available for an electric cooker with a fixed extractor fan above. One thing we really like about this kitchen has to the be large walk in pantry style storage area with fitted shelves, light and power where you can store loads of items which is a real bonus.
Up to the first floor
Once you are up to the first floor you will see that the spacious landing offers access to all the rooms available including a storage area and also a hatch which opens to the loft area.
The master bedroom is to the rear of the home and this large double room has a pleasing aspect over the rear garden and the rooftops of neighbouring homes. This room features a range of built in wardrobes to one wall for all your storage needs. The second bedroom is to the front of the home and this is also a generous size double room which has built in wardrobes to one wall and also fitted shelves for further storage. The third bedroom is back to the rear of the home which is once again large enough to accommodate a double bed if needed which makes it ideal for a guest room or even for the kids.
Buyers will find that the shower room and toilet are separate to one another. The shower room has been fully tiled with a decorative border and there is a walk in shower cubicle complete with a glass screen. There is a fitted storage cupboard underneath the sink unit and also a built in airing cupboard where you could store your towels and bedding. A separate wc is always handy to have in any family home and this one can be found on the opposite side of the staircase to the shower room.
To the front of the home there is a well maintained garden with a lawned area and planted borders complete with a mature hedge to offer privacy from the roadside. Gated access open up onto the driveway which provides ample off street parking which in turn leads you down the side of the home and round to the rear. At the far end of the garden is the detached single garage which has an electric door, power and light.
The garden to the rear of the home is also very attractive and is rather private so you can enjoy the summer sunshine in peace and quiet. The garden has a lawned area where the kids could play and there is a flagged patio seating area where you and your guests could enjoy a BBQ together. Fenced boundaries and mature plants offer privacy and colour all year round. The rear garden also has some steps which lead you down to a cellar style workshop which can be accessed via a double glazed door. This could be used for storage or for a hobby room.
