Property Summary

This immaculately presented, detached and extended home boasts numerous desirable features including an extensive open-plan living room and kitchen with bi-folding doors opening onto a large patio and delightful, enclosed rear garden.

The property also includes a separate TV room, a family-sized diner and a downstairs shower room. Outside is a spacious outbuilding ideal as a hobby space, a fitness suite, workshop or even an office.

Fully double glazed and equipped with a programmable gas-fired central heating system, the property also offers off-street parking for several vehicles. Buses into the city centre also stop nearby while local amenities include good schools, a couple of pubs, a pharmacy, convenience stores and hot food takeaways.


13’ 3” (4.05m) x 10’ 3” (3.12m)

The front door from the driveway opens onto a spacious reception hall decorated largely in neutral colours. Warmth is from a wall-mounted radiator with natural light allowed by both an overhead skylight and opaque glass panels either side of the front door.

Both wall-mounted uplighters and overhead LED spotlights offer additional light after dark with solid-wood doors from the main atrium opening onto the dining room and the spacious, walk-in cloakroom to the left.

The stairs adjacent to the cloakroom rise to a landing offering access to the bathroom and three bedrooms on the first floor. A short, L-shaped corridor from the left-hand side of the reception hall leads to more internal doors opening onto the TV room, the contemporary downstairs shower room and to the family dining area.

9’ 11” (3.03m) x 8’ 10” (2,68m)

The epitome of snug, the cosy TV room is carpeted and heated by a wall-mounted radiator with windows on two sides allowing plenty of natural light. The room is equipped with fixtures and fittings for a large, wall-mounted flat screen TV, additional power points and a USB charger socket. Although currently used for leisure, the room has potential as a home office if required.

14’ 2” (4.31m) x 11’ 1” (3.37m)

Although the family dining room is a defined space, it’s an integral part of the main, ground-floor accommodation, which flows easily from here into the kitchen, the spacious living area overlooking the gardens and even through to the utility room if necessary.

With access possible through two different solid-wood doors from the reception hall, the dining area features laminate flooring and is lit by overhead LED spotlights and a central, chandelier-style ceiling light.

Warmth in winter is from an authentic dual-fuel stove mounted on a stone hearth or from a wall-mounted radiator, with ample space for both a family-sized table and chairs and additional storage units if required.

A wide open hatchway connects the dining area with the living room with an adjacent arch leading through into the kitchen area.

28’ 1” (8.57m) x 11’ 1” (3.37m)

The bright and airy room combines comfortable leisure time with everything a chef could ask for, all benefiting from natural light flooding through overhead skylights as well as the bi-folding doors out to the patio, which add to the considerable sense of space and freedom if left open in the summer months.

Also equipped with laminate flooring, the living room area benefits from fixtures and fittings for another wall-mounted, flat-screen TV with warmth in winter provided by twin contemporary vertical radiators.

A handy, chest-high counter divides the living room from the kitchen, which overlooks the rear gardens through double-glazed casement windows. Light-grey marble worktops laid out in a G shape offer plenty of room for preparation with storage available above and below in matching, soft-closing base and wall units.

The kitchen design also incorporates a traditional-style range including a double oven and grill and a five-ring gas hob beneath an extractor. There is an under-mounted, one-and-a-half bowl sink and drainer beneath a chrome mixer tap and detachable rinser as well as space enough for an upright, American-style fridge/freezer.

A solid-wood door from the kitchen, currently guarded by additional timber safety gates, leads through to the utility room.

9’ 8” (2.95m) x 8’ 8” (2.64m)

Fitted with a stone-effect tiled floor, the well-appointed utility room boasts worktops and base and wall units to match the kitchen, the house boiler and space and plumbing for both a washing machine and tumble drier.

An external door from here opens onto a passageway along the left-hand side of the house connecting the front and rear garden. Warmth is provided by a wall-mounted radiator, light by overhead LED spotlights, with additional power points for appliances also set above the worktops.

6’ 0” (1.83m) x 5’ 2” (1.58m)

Accessed via the corridor off the main reception hall, the downstairs shower room is fully tiled and includes a shower cubicle to the right, a dual-flush WC and wall-mounted hand basin equipped with a chrome mixer tap.

Natural light is allowed by an opaque casement window overlooking the passageway connecting the front and rear gardens.

13’ 0” (3.96m) x 9’ 6” (2.90m)

The largest of the three bedrooms, Bedroom 1 overlooks the rear garden through a large picture window and is fitted with carpets and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.

The room includes twin fitted wardrobes and drawers either side of a full-length mirror as well as a feature wall decorated with an embossed leaf print design.

9’ 10” (3.00m) x 9’ 6” (2.89m)

Although currently used as a child’s room, Bedroom 2 is large enough to accommodate a double bed if required and also overlooks the rear garden through a picture window already equipped with a roller blind. The room is also carpeted and heated by a wall-mounted radiator and is currently decorated in neutral colours.

7’ 10” (2.40m) x 7’ 7” (2.30m)

Bedroom 3 is located at the front of the property and is the smallest of the three. It is also carpeted with warmth provided by a wall-mounted radiator with casement windows also already equipped with a roller blind.

7’ 7” (2.30m) x 5’ 5” (1.65m)

The first-floor bathroom is also fully-tiled and equipped including a bath with a tiled side and chrome mixer taps. A wall-mounted hand basin, also equipped with a chrome mixer tap, is located below an opaque patterned window while the room also includes a dual-flush WC and a wall-mounted heated towel rail in chrome.

STORE/ WORKSHOP: 17’ 2” (5.24m) x 10’ 2” (3.09m)

The detached property sits well back from the road, separated from the pavement by a low stone wall, with shrubs behind offering some screening from the road. Entry is via a drive to the left-hand side, with block paving to the right offering parking for at least two vehicles.

Adjacent is the detached brick-built workshop, separate from the house, which could also be considered as a fitness room or perhaps as a hobby room or office.

Boundaries are marked by a waist-high fence panels on one side and a high hedge on the other, a timber gate to the left-hand side of the house allowing access to the external door from the utility room and to the rear of the property.

Here, a delightful, enclosed rear garden can be accessed directly via the bi-folding doors from the living room which lead out onto the flagstone patio beneath a retractable canopy. The outdoor space is perfect for al-fresco dining or entertaining with a step down from here leading to lawns surrounded by well-stocked flower beds.

Established shrubs help to offer privacy and shade with the boundaries marked by head-high timber fence panels. Additional features includes discreet outdoor lighting, an external tap and a security alarm.
