the property

An ideal home for somebody looking to downsize to ground floor living, looking to join the property ladder or maybe even investment; this is a lovely, well-presented maisonette. Approaching from the front, the property is discovered at the towards the front of a delightful walkway located at the end of Kingsmere Close. Parking for the property is on-street along Kingsmere Close although the property does have a garage located in a secure block that is on the deeds and is under the same lease.

Starting from the front, viewers will make their way up the pathway passing the delightfully presented front garden that comes as part of this home and entering through the side door. Inside viewers will have plenty of space for removing coats and shoes as the hallway angles round and has doors leading off to both bedrooms, the lounge and bathroom, aswell as an opening into the kitchen. There is a door immediately next to the entrance for a storage cupboard under the neighbouring stairwell and an airing cupboard located before the bedrooms.

The first room to the right is the kitchen which is a stylish hi-gloss white suite that includes an electric oven and hob with an overhead extractor fan. With the units being mounted fully around the kitchen, only leaving space for a fridge freezer and washing machine, there is plenty of food and utensil storage and lots of work surface space.

The next room is a large lounge that has enough space for a sofa suite and dining table, as depicted in the photos. The entrance to the lounge is via a nice set of glass panelled doors and there is a lovely large window to the front that looks out to the walkway and provides plenty of natural light. The wood effect laminate flooring gives a fabulous finish to the room.

Almost opposite the lounge is the bathroom, which is another clean white suite and includes a bath with shower over, wash basin, toilet and an obscured window. Finally for the interior are the two double bedrooms. The master is particularly generous as there is a large recess behind the airing cupboard for wardrobes. Both bedrooms, like the lounge, have a terrific window to allow lots of light in and both overlook the garden at the rear.

Finishing outside, being the ground floor maisonette, this property has the advantage of having both a front and rear garden and so there is a short low maintenance area that is ideal for place for a bit of relaxing. There is a cleverly positioned shed and tall fence that allow the owners lots of privacy.
