SELLERS INSIGHT It is with a tinge of regret that we are leaving this house after 21 gloriously happy years. We have found it to be a lovely spacious family home with oodles of character. The garden we have particularly enjoyed with its numerous climbers, shrubs and wildlife pond. A particular advantage of the house is its close proximity to town, schools and transport links and being within easy walking distance of the beach is an added advantage. We hope the new owners are as happy as we have been as we certainly have wonderful memories of our time at No.3.
STEP INSIDE Stepping in through the front door, the character of this lovely period property is immediately apparent with a stained half glazed oak internal door leading from the entrance porch into the hallway which has stripped wooden floor, high ceiling, arched coving and deep skirting boards. Stairs ascend to the upper floor with a further set of stairs down to the garden room and rear garden. Doors lead off to the living room, separate dining room and kitchen/breakfast room.
The living room is a warm and inviting space with a sash box bay window to the front and original fireplace with wood surround and mantle housing the log burner. The room boasts all the features you would expect from a property of this era, with high ceiling, picture rails, cornicing and deep skirting boards.
Stepping into the separate dining room, again with beautiful original fireplace, there is built in storage with display cabinet above and a sash window overlooking the rear garden. This room also enjoys the same period features.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a great space with stripped wood floor and original fireplace housing an electric log burner. There is a useful storage cupboard and ample room for a table and chairs. The kitchen is equipped with base and wall units, work top and tiled splash backs. There is plumbing and space for a dishwasher and space for further appliances. A uPVC window overlooks the rear garden and there is a further part stained glass sash window to the side in the dining area.
Ascending the stairs to the first floor with continuation of the period features, there is a bedroom currently used as a study which overlooks the rear garden. Another bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has stripped wood floor and wooden vanity with sink and storage. The master bedroom, on this level at the front of the property, has stripped wood floor and a sash bay window with bespoke shutters with a further window just to the side, again with the same shutters. There is an original fireplace with wood surround and mantle and period features. A door leads into the en suite bathroom comprising bath with shower above, mid level WC and wash hand basin.
The family bathroom, also on this level with stripped wood floor, comprises bath with shower over, mid level WC and wall mounted wash hand basin. Two obscure sash windows have a side aspect.
Further stairs ascend to the second floor and a Velux windows fills the area with natural light. There is ample eaves storage with light and power, a further useful storage cupboard and access to the roof space. There are two further bedrooms on this level, one of which has a rear aspect and is fitted with a Velux window. The other generous bedroom on this level, has a sash window overlooking the front of the property.
If we take the stairs down from the entrance hallway, this reveals a fantastic space. A kitchen area with sink, worktop and base and wall units, space and plumbing for a washing machine and further appliances which flows through to the lovely garden room which houses the gas boiler. This additional well planned area of the house opens directly onto the level rear garden with wide French doors. Everything you need for a day of entertaining has been incorporated into this area with a separate WC also on this level, the kitchen area and the garden room opening onto the rear. There is also access to a large storage area at this lower level.
STEP OUTSIDE The front of the property retains all the kerb appeal you would expect from a property of this period with a low wall boundary encasing a paved area furnished with potted plants. There is a wrought iron gate with a path to the front door.
The rear garden is a good size and fully enclosed with a level lawn, established borders and fence boundary. There is a seating area outside the garden room and a further seating area at the top of the garden. There is also a pond, log store and additional storage to one side of the property and there is a gate to the service lane at the rear.
