Bridge Road is a beautiful, residential street in Greaves which is located just off the main A6 which is Greaves Road.
The street consists of period homes, all set back by small forecourt gardens. This particular home has an excellent position. The front overlooks the popular allotments which are always in demand and the rear faces south for all day sunshine.
Close by on Greaves Road there is parade of local shops including a convenience store for your everyday needs. Busses run on a regular basis into the city and down to the university. The hospital is just a short walk away, as are lovely canal walks.
The main entrance to this Victorian home opens firstly into a vestibule where you can take off your shoes and coat before opening the glazed doorway into the hall.
The hallway itself has retained the original coved ceiling and the stairs which will entice you upstairs are directly ahead of you. Both reception rooms can also be accessed from the hall, however the first room we will enter on your left hand side is the living room.
The living areas
The main living room is to the front of the home and perfectly fuses space with light, complemented by the neutral tones which the owners have styled this room in.
To the centre of the room is an electric fire which provides a lovely, cosy warm glow which will create extra warmth on those cooler evenings. The large bay window enjoys a pleasing aspect towards the allotments on the opposite side of the road which means you are not overlooked, a great feature this home offers!
For those of you who like to enjoy a sit down meal in the evenings then the separate dining room this home offers will be ideal for that or even entertaining. This expansive room features a double glazed window to the rear elevation which looks out into the enclosed rear yard. The soaring ceiling helps to create a real sense of space and from here there is direct access down into the cellar which goes under the front of the home. This is where you will find the meters for the home.
The kitchen is also large enough to accommodate a further table if you wish so you could maybe enjoy your breakfast here before you set off to work. Access to the outside space can be gained from here and the boiler is positioned just next to the rear exit door.
You will certainly be impressed with the size the kitchen offers. Think storage, light and space and this is exactly what you get here. There are ample built in storage units along with display cabinets for your best china whilst work tops to two sides of the room creates a great work space for those who love to cook.
First floor rooms
As you reach the summit of the first floor landing you will be greeted by three bedrooms and a bathroom. The first room we would like to talk about is the wonderful master bedroom.
The master bedroom is a fantastic double room which like the living room below, features a great sized double glazed bay window. This large window provides a perfect aspect looking over the allotments on the opposite side of the road, a great view as you wake up in the morning.
The second bedroom to the rear of the home is also large enough to accommodate a double bed and all the furnishings you would expect to have. This room would be ideal for a teenager or maybe even a guest suite, depending on your circumstances.
Like the second bedroom, the third and final bedroom looks out over the rear of the home which will be filled with light thanks to the southerly aspect. The third bedroom at present is used as a dressing room, however would make a great sized single room or home office depending on you would like to have things set up.
Also on the first floor is the bathroom which has been recently fitted with a white three piece suite which features shower over the P-Shaped bath. The room has been partially tiled to complement and has a frosted double glazed window to the side elevation.
The outside areas
These homes on Bridge Road feature a courtyard style frontage where you could always add a little colour with some potted plants or hanging baskets thanks to you being set back from the pavement. Gated access opens up to a small pathway which will lead you to the main entrance.
To the rear of the home there is an enclosed yard which is a private space you could enjoy all year round. This low maintenance area allows ample space for a table and chairs so you can enjoy the south facing aspect and maybe the occasional summertime BBQ with friends and family.
The owners actually used to have a lawned area here a few years back so this could easily be put back to lawn if you wanted a little more greenery.
