Property description

Tenure: Freehold

a staircase rises to the first floor. A pine panelled door opens into the well proportioned lounge having a large window to the front which throws light on the attractive ingle fire place with beamed mantle and log burning stove resting on the flagstone hearth with additional warmth provided by a central heating radiator. The natural-toned ceramic tiled flooring is rimmed with deep skirting boards and pendant lighting adds an evening ambiance. A door gives way to the recently refurbished dining kitchen to the rear of the property and has been fitted with a range of painted, Shaker style wall and base units to include drawer banks and having splash tiling between. The oak work surface has an inset, enamel one and a half bowl sink unit with swan neck mixer tap over and set beneath the large double glazed window which overlooks the rear garden and Town Road at the other side of the river. Integrated appliances include an automatic dishwasher, there are spaces for a range-style cooker, a larder style fridge freezer and a walk-in under-stairs pantry provides additional storage. The slate tiled flooring flows through into the rear hallway, the utility room and bathroom and a door from the hallway opens to the rear garden. The extremely useful utility/boot room has kitchen complementary units with a further circular stainless steel sink unit set into the laminated work-top below the rear window. There is plumbing for an automatic washing machine, space for a tumble dryer, an extra freezer and the wall mounted Worcester gas central heating combination boiler alongside the gas and electric meters. The bathroom has mostly tiled walls forming the backdrop to the luxury white suite comprising a roll-top claw-foot bath, one and a half size step in shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and high-flush w.C. Towels are warmed by the chrome combined radiator and heated rail whilst the recessed down-lights add the finishing touch.

On the first floor are two spacious, double bedrooms - one overlooking the pretty lane to the front and one with a low level window taking in the cottage garden and river views to the rear - the former having a built-in wardrobe and loft access point and both having pendant lighting points.

To the front is a walled flower and shrub garden with a flagged pathway to the front door. A flagged driveway to the side provides parking space for two/three cars and leads to the detached brick built garage with up-and-over door. The rear cottage garden has a cobbled area, a vegetable plot and flagged seating area alongside the boundary wall overlooking the river and the surrounding idiosyncratic terraced cottages.
