Set back from the road and within walking distance of local shops, schools, playparks and other amenities, this attractive, red brick detached home offers lovely kern appeal. The driveway to the side of the property offers parking for at least two cars so you won’t be short of somewhere to park at the end of a busy day.
As you enter through the newly fitted front door, you can instantly see the improvements, love and attention to detail that has been poured into the property. New uPVC windows have been fitted throughout, a new condensing boiler was installed in March 2019 by British Gas and along with added cavity and loft insulation ensures year long warmth and efficient energy costs. The current EPC is rated D but a new assessment is being arranged to reflect the improvements made in the property.
The bright and airy hallway is laid with smart tiles for ease of maintenance and connects the downstairs living space beautifully. There are two storage cupboards for coats, shoes and other household items as well as a convenient downstairs cloakroom, fitted with a white WC and basin.
The newly fitted kitchen is smart and modern with a range of fitted grey gloss cupboards and drawers above and below the worktop. There is a new double oven with grill and a ceramic electric hob with extractor hood. There is space for a free standing fridge/freezer and dishwasher and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap. At the rear of the kitchen, the archway opening leads through to the utility area where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble direr and doorway access to side of the rear garden.
The living room spans the width of the property and has space for a couple of large sofas and other free standing furniture. There is a new electric fire with a marble effect mantlepiece surround that provides a lovely focal point in the room. New sliding uPVC patio doors open up onto the conservatory.
The conservatory is a fabulous additional reception room, with smart tiled flooring, power sockets and a radiator for year round use. A number of the window panes have also been recently replaced. Double doors open onto the rear garden to blend outdoor/indoor living.
Taking the stairs to the first floor, you will find the three bedrooms and the family bathroom.
