Property description

Screened from its tree lined street by mature hedging and double wooden gates, lush green foliage winds beautifully across this home's red brick exterior.

A smart off-street driveway fronts the house providing a generous area of parking for several cars.

On your right is a large home office with a wall of fitted cupboards and a long desk unit placed under the window for daydreaming as you work.

Next door, past a useful guest cloakroom, is the wonderful living room, its French windows flooding the room with light and opening directly onto the pretty rear garden. It is a substantial space with plenty of room to entertain friends or relax in large family sofas.

Through a doorway at the rear is the large country style kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys views over the green garden while offering plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. The kitchen is light and spacious with an abundance of cupboards, worktop space, an integrated oven and hob and ample room for additional appliances.

Returning to the hallway to the right is a fantastic addition of a substantial annex with living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all beautifully fitted and presented. It is a very versatile space that can either be used for elderly family, visiting guests or alternatively can be easily reconfigured to afford you more reception rooms.

Climbing the carpeted stairs, a long landing with an airing cupboard and access to the loft has a fantastic wide dressing area with fitted wardrobes at one end. The master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, and three further bedrooms are all beautifully presented, spacious and light. The large family bathroom is fresh and modern with a shower over the bath.

Outside at the rear, block brick terracing, perfect for alfresco dining, sits at the back of the living room and fronts a large lawned area edged by mature hedging, plants and trees which afford extra privacy. There is side access to the front and a brick enclosed bed ideal for vegetables or flowers.
