Full Details

STEP INSIDE A stained-glass window sits above the dark cherry coloured front door. Through the door you are met with the stairs to the upper portion of the house, with a storage cupboard under the stairs. The lounge lies to the right of the entryway with the dining room to the left.
The lounge is a spacious room illuminated by the bay window looking out to the front garden. Grey toned pastel tile fireplace frames the coal fire, with natural wooden mantel lining the top and a tiled base.
On the opposite side to the lounge is the dining room. Another well sized carpeted room, it features built in storage shelves, and a cupboard conceals the hot water cylinder. The feature of this room is the original gas fire. The ornate mantle surrounds the gas fire and back boiler. Another bay window with window seat brightens the room.
To the other side of the dining room is the kitchen. Currently with a coal fuel aga or alternative electric oven with hob and white floor and wall units, this space has the extra potential to have a casual dining area. Also in the kitchen is the downstairs shower room, with a toilet, pedestal sink and large shower as well as access to the back garden.
At the top of the stairs on the left, is the first double bedroom. With built in storage cupboards, the carpeted room has an original coal fireplace and white wooden mantle, with views of the back garden from the window. The same view can also be seen from the second double bedroom, situated to the left of the first bedroom.
The family shower room lies directly ahead from the top of the stairs, with a shower, toilet, pedestal sink and bidet.
On the right is the principal bedroom with built in storage cupboard. A window allows for plenty of natural light to enter the space, with views of the front garden. This bedroom has an en-suite shower room with a shower, toilet, and pedestal sink.
The property is being sold as seen and there are no certificates for the services. This is an ideal candidate to be a home project with scope for renovation.

STEP OUTSIDE The front of the property has a nicely sized lawn area with a small pear tree, enclosed by fencing and stone wall. The long driveway runs along side the lawn and past the front door at the side of the house towards the garage. At the end of the driveway, a small courtyard connects the back of the property to the garage, workshop and garden.
The single garage with electric roller door has the potential to be turned into an annex or studio. A small kitchen with an unused boiler sits at the back of the garage with a toilet and pedestal sink in another room. Additionally, there is plumbing in place to make this space into a shower room.
The workshop is next to the garage, with the plumbing and electricity for it to become a utility room. A wooden shed with tiled roof, also with electricity resides next to this building.
Tucked behind the garage is the generously sized garden. Past the lawned area, a raised brick planter runs steadily alongside the sloping path to the back of the garden. There are two greenhouses, ideal for the green fingered gardener. The rear of the garden is raised, and accessed up a few steps, this is prime for a small seating area overlooking the garden below. The position of the platform wall is a place that receives a lot of sunlight and warmth, with grapes growing along the length of the wall. The entire garden is interspersed with many flowering and fruit bushes, as well as apple and plum trees.

AGENTS INSIGHT A great character property in need of updating.

This will be an amazing home when refurbished with large gardens and plenty of storage.
The reception rooms are spacious and the large garage has been partially refurbished as a studio/annexe, just waiting for someone to finish it off.

The area is a great place for families, with a good local primary school and a lovely local community.
