Property description


Centrally located close to the International train station you can be in London within 38 minutes. Shops and schools are all within easy reach and the motorway is just a short drive away. A very convenient location for all the family. The spacious driveway leads you up to the property with parking for approximately 7 cars. The space at the side of the house could house further vehicles or perhaps a caravan or garage?

Attractive bay windows in the ground floor bedrooms look out over the front of the property with a further room off the dining room which could be another bedroom or maybe a room for hobbies? Upstairs you’ll find a further 2 bedrooms and bathroom making this property very flexible for large families or those that are looking to move a relative in.

The kitchen has been recently installed to include a new boiler and water filter. There is ample space to prepare meals or try out the latest recipes. A comfortable lounge at the rear of the property looks out over the garden and makes a perfect place to retreat at the end of a busy day. You’ll never have a queue for the bathroom here with a choice of 2 bathrooms and a shower room helping to ensure harmony in the mornings!

The large rear garden is not overlooked and offers the new owner a wonderful space to enjoy in those warmer months. I will miss the lovely neighbours who over the years have become good friends.

What the Owner says:
When I moved into my home in 1999 it was a 2 bedroom bungalow. I have maximised the space by first adding the lounge extension then later converting the loft space.

This has been a happy home for me and the flexible layout has suited a variety of family arrangements over the years.

As it is just me now I have decided to downsize but hope the new owner enjoys the space and the scope to further enhance should they wish.
