The property also benefits from gardens to the front and rear, double glazing throughout and a programmable gas-fired central heating system.

INTERIOR

RECEPTION HALL:
From the tiled reception hall internal doors lead through to the lounge, kitchen, downstairs WC and the modern utility room.

LOUNGE:
16’ 5” (5.00m) x 11’ 2” (3.40m)
The lounge is decorated in neutral colours and features a traditional fireplace complete with a cast-iron grate, marble hearth and surround and a decorative mantle in white.

Plenty of light floods the room through four-panel, mullioned windows overlooking the drive and garden to the front of the house. The lounge also incorporates TV, wifi and phone connections with plenty of power sockets and ample room for both soft furnishings and storage units.

KITCHEN / DINER:
24’ 7” (7.50m) x 11’ 2” (3.40m)
The spacious, bright and airy kitchen/diner occupies the entire rear façade of the property, overlooking the pleasant rear garden through two sets of patio doors as well as a double-paned casement window.

Tiled throughout, the end of the room adjacent to an olive-green feature wall is perfect for family dining. A wood-finish central kitchen island topped with a granite work surface incorporates electrical points, wine rack and open shelving.

Beneath the kitchen window is a stainless steel, one-and-a-half-bowl sink and drainer set below a mixer tap with integrated water filter. Below the sink a softener unit treats the incoming hard water. More granite worktops either side fit between base and wall units, each incorporating some additional down-lighting. The units include an integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

More storage space and worktops are located adjacent to the integral tower-style, eye-level oven and grill and either side of the four-ring gas hob. The kitchen area is lit by contemporary overhead LED spotlights and includes a good sized storage cupboard beneath the stairwell.

UTILITY ROOM:
8’ 6” (2.60m) x 7’ 10” (2.40m)
Originally part of the single garage, the contemporary utility room boasts a striking chequerboard floor with warmth from a modern, vertical radiator and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier beneath practical worktops.

There is also a dedicated slot for an upright fridge/freezer while the room offers more storage space above and below a stainless steel sink and drainer fitted with a chrome mixer tap.

A lockable door leads through to the integral garage, which is lit and large enough to accommodate motorbikes or bicycles.

DOWNSTAIRS WC:
In addition to the dual-flush WC, this room contains a console hand-basin set within a handy vanity unit with tiled splashback and mirrored wall cabinet above.

BEDROOM 1:
11’ 2” (3.40m) x 11’ 2” (3.40m)
The spacious master bedroom overlooks the front of the property through four-panel mullioned windows and incorporates twin, integral, double wardrobes.

The en-suite shower room boasts a tiled floor with under-floor heating and radiator, dual-flush WC and a console hand-basin set within a wood-finish vanity unit, matching a mirrored wall cabinet above. The shower cubicle is fully-tiled and fitted with a glass and chrome door. A frosted, double-glazed window allows in plenty of natural light.

BEDROOM 2:
11’ 0” (3.35m) x 9’ 10” (3.00m)
Comfortably large enough for a double bed, bedroom 2 also overlooks the front of the house through mullioned windows. Additional interest is currently provided by a subtle mural design.

BEDROOM 4:
7’ 10” (2.40m) x 7’ 10” (2.40m)
The smallest of the four, this room is currently adapted as a home office which also includes a small double sofa-bed and overlooks the rear garden.

BATHROOM:
7’ 10” (2.40m) x 5’ 3” (1.60m)
The fully-tiled house bathroom is located between bedrooms 3 and 4 at the rear of the house and includes a white panel bath, equipped with a hinged glass splash screen and with a shower above. A frosted, double-glazed window allows in plenty of natural light.

Adjacent is a drop-in hand basin set within a wood-finish unit running along one wall and incorporating a double-doored vanity cupboard and a concealed cistern for the dual-flush WC.

There is a mirrored, double-doored medicine cabinet above the sink while the room is also equipped with overhead LED spotlights, radiator and under-floor heating.

A landing connects the upstairs rooms and includes an airing cupboard containing the hot water tank. The spacious, partly boarded loft space is accessed via a hatch and integrated ladder from the landing.

EXTERIOR

The property enjoys a private location on a spur off The Mallards. A block-paved driveway at the front of the house offering parking for two vehicles and access to the integral garage. The property also benefits from two shared visitor spaces.

Security lighting is installed above the garage and by the covered front door. Access to the rear of the house is via a gated passageway on the right-hand side, where an electric car charging point has recently been installed.

The back garden is largely laid to lawn, surrounded on all three sides by head-high timber fencing, providing plenty of privacy from neighbouring homes and partially screened by established shrubs and trees.

Sliding doors from the dining area as well as a separate set from the kitchen lead out onto a flagstone patio ideal for relaxing or entertaining in the summer months.

Additional features include a timber arch, already adorned with climbing plants, some security lighting, an outside tap and a water butt plumbed into the guttering from the roof.

LOCATION

The Mallards reflects the property’s proximity to the River Gade and canal, offering pleasant waterside walks.

Other amenities within easy reach include pubs, restaurants, convenience stores, a laundrette, a day nursery and several children’s play areas. There are good local primary and secondary state schools and a private school nearby.
