About this Home
Number 6 Kent Street instantly stands out from its neighbour's thanks to its great condition, with its modern uPVC windows and doors, along with the fresh paintwork on the exposed brick. A small walled garden separates the house from the pavement and is a lovely spot to add some flower pots or even a bench to watch the world go by. Through the front door, we enter a small hallway with the stairs running off ahead of us and on our left, we step into the living room. The living room is a wonderfully bright and airy room with a west-facing window that will bathe the room in the afternoon & evening sun. If you choose to open your double doors to the kitchen diner you can even create a dual aspect effect. The gas fire on the far wall acts as a focal point with the recesses on either side having been painted in a beautiful shade of red, creating a sense of depth in the room. We also find access to the cupboard under the stairs which currently houses a tumble dryer.
As mentioned previously we get to the kitchen diner through double doors that line up with the French doors into the garden, helping light penetrate all the way through the ground floor. Spreading the entire width of the house, the kitchen diner offers great space with an open plan feel. Counters and units are set in a U-Shape to the right-hand side of the room with space for free-standing appliances, with beech effect cupboard doors and a colourful patchwork tiling bring a sense of warmth to the room. Sitting opposite is the dining area that takes in the views of the garden via the full-length glass doors and would easily fit a 4-6 seater table.
Journeying upstairs we find the master bedroom sitting to the front elevation, a spacious room with integral wardrobe space, handily located above the stairs. There is ample room for a double or king size bed, along with additional furniture to suit. Heading clockwise from the landing to the second bedroom, we notice a well positioned mini-window letting light into the stairwell to help brighten the centre of the house.
The second bedroom, whilst smaller than the master is still a great-sized double, perfect for young children sharing or maybe a teenager's room. This particular 2nd bedroom would work perfectly as a home office too, if required.
Finishing off the first floor is the modern fitted 4 piece bathroom with fully tiled walls - perfect for family living. It truly is a great size with a contemporary bath & separate corner shower unit, plus extra room for storage shelves.
To the rear of the home is a wonderful garden to enjoy. Artificial grass is laid as well as a small decking area, perfect for some al-fresco dining. Plant pots and trelessing bring a real sense of greenery and relaxation to the garden.
