Make your way down the block paved driveway and notice the attractive and well maintained front garden. The driveway itself can host up to 3 cars and leads down the side of the home to the separate garage.
Head on through the part glazed front doors into the handy vestibule before entering the hallway. Immediately you will notice the period features of this home, especially the high ceilings, establishing a spacious and airy feel immediately upon entering.
As with the majority of the home, you may wish to update the decoration to your own tastes, but what this brings is the opportunity to really create your own home. Access to all ground floor rooms is achieved from the hallway, as well as a handy downstairs W.C.
The ground floor rooms
Take a left into the large and bright front facing living room. In here you can really imagine settling down for the evening in front of the fire during the colder months. The large bay window overlooks the front garden and allows so much natural light within the room. The soft decoration, combined with the wall lights in the recesses, attractive cornicing and abundance of space for comfy furniture, really make this living room a relaxing haven.
Back out into the hallway and head toward the rear of the home, take another left in to the 2nd reception room. Once again, the high ceiling and space available make this a fantastic dining room. A further bay window overlooks the rear garden and an arch leads you into the kitchen. The opportunity to open the dining room up the kitchen is there to be seen, creating a huge and social kitchen/dining space.
Within the kitchen you have plenty of cabinetry and worktop surfaces to utilise, including space for all the necessary white goods you would need. A gas hob and electric oven are integrated and a window looks out to the side of the property. There is a part glazed door leading into the sun room extension - a great room perfect for relaxing in. Access out into the garden is achieved from this room.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Once upstairs and on to the spacious landing area, take a right into the family bathroom. Some modernisation, including a new suite maybe your choice, however the current bathroom is in great condition. Comprising of a bath with shower over head and wash basin - the toilet is located next door separately - giving you the option to merge the two rooms together creating a spacious family bathroom.
Next door and overlooking the rear garden is the first of two great size double bedrooms. The large window allows plenty of light within, brightening the room. The decoration is soft and neutral, giving you a blank canvass to work with. A large double bed plus furniture to suit wouldn't look a miss in here.
To the front of this home are a further two bedrooms. A single room sits to the left, perfect for a child or maybe even as an office/study depending on your requirements. Next door is the pleasing master bedroom. So much room is on offer within. The large bay window creates more space and ensures a light and bright room. A king size bed will easily fit in here, along with additional furniture either side of the chimney breast. All it needs is your style and taste adding to it and you could have the perfect relaxing bedroom to retire to after a long day.
Outside space and separate garage
Off road parking to the side of this home provides space for up to 3 cars, making it extremely handy for family and friends visiting. The well kept and attractive front garden immediately please you upon approaching Wakefield Drive, with a lawn area surrounded by established borders. The block paved driveway extends all the way to the rear garden and separate garage.
The garage itself is perfect for storage or maybe as a workshop, given that there is power and light within.
Surrounded by attractive stained timber fences, the rear garden is perfect for just enjoying. With little to no maintenance needed, you can really imagine yourself sitting around a table with friends and family, come a warm sunny day. The paved rear garden is perfect for those who want outdoor space, minus the gardening.
