The property is nicely set back from the road with a manageable front garden and porch. Upon entering the property through the main door at the front of the house and into the entrance hall, there is access to both living areas and the staircase to the first floor. Immediately on your right is the main bright and airy living room which boasts lovely wooden flooring and a sympathetically restored original fireplace. Double doors at the back of the living room gives access to the rear garden. Back from the entrance hall to the left is the dining room which houses similarly beautiful wooden flooring, original fireplace, and well-built wooden alcove units. Further storage can be found under the stairs. The property benefits from a good sized kitchen which offers standalone units and cooker with space for a two seater breakfast table. There is also further access to the rear garden from the kitchen via the back door.
Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms, both offering lovely character features throughout, with original fireplaces and laid with wooden flooring. The principal bedroom benefits from a double aspect view. Just off of the hallway is a separate four-piece bathroom. The property benefits from possible further extensions to create even more space (STTP) and is offered to the market with no onward chain.
The front garden provides the perfect addition to the greenery of the plot and enables the house to sit back off of the road, resulting in off street parking for one car. The front garden is mostly laid to lawn and is edged by hedgerows, offering privacy to the plot. There is side access from the front through a gated entrance that takes you immediately through to the rear garden. The rear garden is laid to lawn and benefits from a lovely seating area which can be accessed via the French doors leading from the living room and the single door from the kitchen. The rear garden is bordered mostly by thick hedging, again adding to the greenery of the space and view and allowing for seclusion. A store room completes the outside space, ideal for a variety of options.
