** under offer ** This traditional main door villa lies within a popular residential area and offers spacious accommodation full of charm.

The main door opens into a generous vestibule where traditional tiled flooring flows through into hallway. Boasting a large corner bay window, the living room is the heart of the home, decorated in a neutral palette, complemented by elegant cornicing and immaculate stripped wood floor. The room also features a useful recessed cupboard, with shelving and attractive natural wood doors. To the rear of the villa, the formal dining room enjoys a fireplace, two attractive recessed storage areas and a large walk-in cupboard. French doors from the dining room open onto the private patio garden. The kitchen benefits from a sunny southwest-facing aspect and includes an array of attractive cabinets. Two bedrooms (a well-proportioned double bedroom and a single bedroom which is currently used as a study) and family bathroom complete the accommodation. Further benefits include gas central heating, double glazing, a private garden and on-street parking. This is an ideal buy for the professional couple, growing family or indeed investor.
