DESCRIPTION The layout of the ground floor is thoughtfully designed so that when entering the front door you can see all the way through the kitchen to the rear garden, giving a sense of size and space. The storage solutions are excellent throughout this property not least under the stairs which then leads to the rest of the ground floor accommodation. The attractive wooden flooring continues to the open plan living/dining room where a bay window looks out to the front garden. The living area has a cosy wood burning stove and cleverly designed bespoke shelving and cupboards. A patio door leads out to the garden with a veranda providing shelter. The kitchen is separated by a Quartz breakfast bar, interrupted only by the 5 gas ring range cooker with extract over. Wall and base units finished off with wooden doors are installed around the area leaving space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. Beyond the kitchen is a utility area built and designed for a washing machine and tumble dryer together with additional kitchen storage. A cottage door leads out to the veranda and patio.
The first floor landing has a side window ensuring light streams through. The family bathroom has a w.c., wash hand basin, bath with electric shower over, heated towel rail, obscured glass windows and shelving with an enclosed water tank beneath. The two double bedrooms are spacious and light both with large windows to either the front or the rear. The third bedroom has space for a single bed and also has easy access to the loft area providing extra storage space. Access is also offered to the remaining part of the loft which is also excellent for storage.
OUTSIDE This property sits on a good sized plot offering not only a front and fully fenced rear garden, but has side access that would allow for a car to pass through to the back. A large workshop at the rear of the garden has power and light. There is a small lawned area with flower borders and some thoughtfully designed water features that lead down to a sunken garden with a fire pit and bespoke benched seating area. A veranda has been erected to the back of the property allowing shelter and a space or outside dining. The front driveway can accommodate three parked vehicles.
