This a wonderful, well-loved, adaptable and most attractive semi-detached family home that originally dates from 1880 and provides spacious family living that has been sympathetically extended over two floors to the side and has the huge benefit of having a large level rear garden. There is still further potential to extend even more if desired out the back on the ground floor.
Approached via a brick paved pathway set behind a garden wall there is a beautifully tendered front garden where there is a centrally positioned prominent red door arched by a Kiftgate rambling rose that opens into a spacious Foyer that connects both the old and newer parts of the house. There is a staircase leading to first floor, coving feature bay window and engineered oak flooring. Off to the left is an elegant large 20’x12’ living room with dual aspect windows, coving, ceiling rose, engineered oak floor, a beautiful open-hearth fireplace housing a cast iron wood burning stove and French doors that open onto the garden. At the back of the Foyer a door opens through to the dining room which in turn is open-plan to the kitchen and has a double-glazed window to the side, rustic timber floor boards and coving. The kitchen is light and airy with its large side window has a range of cream coloured base units from Intoto with granite worktops. There is an integrated fridge freezer, built-in Neff stainless steel oven, integrated dishwasher, fitted 5-burner gas hob, fitted cooker hood and a stainless-steel single drainer sink unit with mixer tap. At the bottom are double French doors opening onto the garden and to the left is a cloakroom and a utility cupboard with plumbing for washing machine, venting for tumble dryer and wall mounted boiler for central heating and domestic hot water. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, master with extensive triple wardrobes and the second bedroom with Juliet balcony. There is a large family bathroom with sunken bath, wash hand basin, WC and independent shower enclosure. There is a smaller second bathroom with three-piece suite.
The rear garden is a significant feature of this house being circa. 100’ long and is considered much larger than average for the area and has the benefit of being level. There is a huge patio bordering the house with an extensive covered pergola over this patio with feature established grape vine perfect for alfresco dining. This adjoins a brick paved hardstanding area that can accommodate one car that would access via the large timber approach gates via a lane at the side. There is a second patio to the left side of the garden, ideal for catching the early morning and afternoon sun. The lawn is extensive which forms the majority of the garden and is surrounded by attractive flower and shrub borders. There is an eating apple tree, plum tree, bamboo and some of the flowing plants include forsythia, honey suckle and orange buddleia. At the bottom of the garden is another pergola with attached established wisteria and gravelled base. There is also a large timber shed.
This is a superb family home with this most amazing garden and can only recommend a viewing at the first opportunity.
