Follow the block paved path that leads to your front door. Step inside, into the welcoming entrance vestibule and hang up your coat in the built-in cloaks cupboard. You'll be surprised how much storage this home has! Follow the glazed solid wood door ahead and into the main lounge.
The main living room
The first thing you'll notice is just how bright and light this living room is. A large uPVC double glazed window beautifully frames the planted frontage and has an appealing open aspect looking down the cul de sac.
Stripped polished floorboards add a feeling of warmth to this beautifully presented room with honey tone shades. A Dimplex living flame coal effect electric fire sits in a stylish marble surround and creates a cosy focal point - perfect on these cooler days and evenings.
An inner hallway provides more storage - a built-in cupboard with more hanging space. Can a person really have too many coats?
The kitchen diner
Come through to the kitchen - a place to enjoy relaxed dining and chats with friends around the kitchen table.
Deep emerald tiles complement the cream, cottage design of the modern units with under lighting to the wall cupboards. Wood effect work surfaces are styled against the stripped wooden floorboards, giving the kitchen a rustic, cottage feel. A Smeg induction hob and electric oven are both built in. There is space for fridge freezer, plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.
Traditional touches, such as the built-in pantry cupboard add to the charm of this beautiful bungalow and allow for all your storage needs.
The bedrooms and 4-piece bathroom
The two double bedrooms are both located to the rear of the home, looking out over the rear cottage garden. One is used as the master bedroom, the other as a 2nd living room.
Each of the bedrooms is beautifully decorated, the master bedroom in calming pastel tones, while fully the 2nd bedroom is more vibrant with its spectacular feature wallpaper and crisp white walls.
Both bedrooms have glazed doors leading out to the block paved patio - ideal for when you went to step out and enjoy alfresco living and also adding versatility to how this home can be used.
The bathroom features a 4-piece suite in white. It is fully tiled, floor to ceiling and features a warming towel radiator in chrome.
A beautiful garden and the driveway
Croft Avenue features the most beautiful gardens and ones which are also private. Designed in a cottage garden style and with a variety of seating areas, these gardens feature a plethora of plants, shrubs and perennials chosen to give all year round colour and interest.
The garden is a haven for wildlife and birds. Regular visitors to the feeders include robins, finches, wrens and wood pigeons. Awaken to the sound of the woodpecker in the morning and come the evening drift off to sleep listening to the sound of the owl hoots.
