Welcome to Cavendish Street, a popular residential street set off Willow Lane. This is an attractive street of period homes, all set back off the road by forecourt gardens.
A short walk cutting up neighbouring Milkingstyle Lane brings you to Westbourne Road. You can walk into the city in under 10 minutes. In just 5 minutes you are at the train station, brilliant for those who often commute. There are local shops close by, perfect for those last-minute essentials.
Families will also be pleased to know that this home has excellent primary and high schools in the catchment area.
Pull up outside, and take a moment to admire the character of the homes on this street. Open the solid wooden gate and follow the path to your traditional front door. Ste inside, through the vestibule and into the hallway.
Stairs ahead lead up to the two double bedrooms and large family bathroom.
The ground floor
The bay fronted lounge opens up into the spacious dining room. This home may need updating but as you look around, you will notice the high ceiling, original cornicing and deep skirtings. A wall-hung gas fire creates a warming focal point. Sliding doors separate the two reception rooms. Keep cosy in the Autumn, but when you have friends and family over - having them open gives the home a social feel.
The kitchen is to the rear. It is set just off the dining room. Imagine what you could do here. This really is an almost blank canvas for you.
The lower ground floor
Take the door from the dining room and stairs lead you down to the lower ground floor. This is such a useful space. We have seen neighbouring homes change this into further living space, we have seen it become a playroom, a home office, one home even created a cinema room! The door from the lower ground floor leads out to the rear enclosed yard.
The first floor
Head back to the hallway and take the stairs to the first floor. This floor features 2 generous sized bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The master bedroom is spacious. It spans the front of the home and is such is a generous size double bedrooms. The 2nd bedroom is also a double bedroom and has a view out to the rear.
The bathroom features a 3-piece suite in blue. It is a spacious bathroom and is large enough to have a 4-piece suite. We have some great ideas for this.
Outside the home
Step outside and into the enclosed rear yard. There are two outhouses, one which houses the electric meters, the other making excellent storage.
The yard features a large purpose-built Koi Pond - this could, however, be knocked down to create a spacious yard for sitting out in.
