Maracaibo (as well as being a port in Venezuela) is a well proportioned three bedroom detached family home built in the 1950’s. Although the exterior has a slight Mediterranean feel with the veranda and balcony, the main part of the house is true to its 1950’s root with generous proportions and high ceilings providing a sense of space throughout.
Upon entering the property you will find a reception hall with a staircase rising to the first floor. A door leads to the recently refurbished bathroom which is fitted with a classic white suite; a further door leads to the study. The dual aspect sitting room is also accessed from the hallway and has a pair of double doors at the far end of the room which in turn provide access to the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is recently refurbished kitchen with a built-in oven and hob. A door from the kitchen leads to the utility area with a large pantry. Upstairs you will find three well proportioned bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a pair of double doors leading to the balcony at the front of the property. Outside there is a well maintained front garden with a driveway and ample parking. The garden at the rear is a particular feature of the property with a mixture of lawned areas and established borders. The garden is generous in size and also offers a good level of seclusion.
