The ground floor living areas
Step inside through the attractive part glazed uPVC front door and immediately be welcomed by a cosy yet spacious living room. Extending toward the rear of the property, a area to dine is provided. To your left you will notice the stairs leading up to the first floor.
The decoration is soft and warm, helped by the room's focal point - the multi fuel stove. Surrounded by an exposed stone fireplace, you can really imagine being curled up in front of this stove during the winter months. The dual aspect windows provide the source of natural light and really lifts and brightens the room no end. The tasteful wood laminate flooring finishes the room off as we head through an internal door to the kitchen.
The first thing you should notice is the wonderful terracotta tiled floor as it runs through the entire kitchen. Contrasting perfectly with the current owner's choice of light and contemporary colours for the rest of the kitchen. Three windows allow an abundance of natural light to flood in and fill this enviable space. Plenty of units are provided as well as preparation areas. Access out to the private rear yard is achieved from the kitchen as is access to the handy cellar.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Head up the stairs located in the front living room, straight ahead of you is the charming bathroom. Well proportioned for the era of property, and light and airy due to the large frosted window. If teal isn't your colour then you may wish to install a new suite, however the current one is presented in a really good condition. Plenty of vanity units and storage is afforded in this bathroom and the walls are tiled for convenience.
The two bedrooms are doubles and both offer exceptional space to relax within. The master is located to the front of the home, complete with internal, built in storage options and space for bedroom furniture. The room is neutrally decorated and has a real sense of calm - perfect for unwinding after a long day at work.
The second double bedroom is located to the rear and once more benefits from integrated storage, neutral decoration and a large window overlooking the delightful rear garden. Access to the loft space is gained through a hatch on the landing.
The cellar & outside
Accessed from the kitchen is the handy cellar. Perfect for storage as it stands and also as a future project to tank and convert. What would you use it as....games room, utility room??
The rear yard is a truly private and enjoyable space to use. Paved for ease of maintenance yet surrounded by potted plants for that natural touch. You can imagine yourself sat out here come the warmer months, book in one hand, drink in the other...bliss!
What's more, there is a useful outhouse located at the far end of this yard, perfect for storage once again or you could have a think about converting it into a summer house!
