There are UPVC glazed French doors with accompanying windows to the side as well as a light. The period style wood/ half moon glazed door is traditional, and offers a nod to the character of this property that you are about to view.

Once inside, you are greeted by the spacious and well lit hallway, which gives you that initial insight to the generous accommodation this home delivers. The hallway enjoys traditional features which continue through the property, such as the tall skirting boards and dado rails.

The hallway has a useful under-stairs storage for your hide-aways, access to the front sitting/dining room, the rear lounge and into the kitchen/breakfast room. The stairs rise to the bedrooms and family bathroom, as well as there being a additional double glazed frosted window to the front with fitted blinds, and a central heating radiator.

The internal glazed French doors open into the front reception room from the hallway. The dining/sitting room is an adaptable space, whether as a cosy sitting room, a children’s playroom, or as a more formal dining setting. This room enjoys a fresh neutral decor with a feature wall covering, and boasting the most delightful bay window, which not only gives additional floor space, but ensures plenty of natural light. The windows within also have feature leaded and stained glass inserts and fitted blinds, all continuing the traditional feel of this home.

The family living room is a gorgeous space, for many reasons, firstly, the generous floorspace that it offers, which is perfect for your multiple sofas, but also the feature fireplace, which is Victorian style, having a gas coal-effect fire set within, and a most delightful surround. Furthermore, the large French patio doors open out to the private and south-facing large rear garden and patio, perfect for opening out in the warmer months and when entertaining. The living room is beautifully styled with modern and neutral decor, having a feature shade around the chimney breast, tall ceilings, feature dado rail, as well as the large skirting boards in-keeping with the age of the home. Furthermore, there is also central heating, wall lighting, plenty of power points and TV aerial around the media centre location.

There are two ceiling lights, access into the loft, as well as a central heating radiator and a large double glazed opaque window on the midway landing point to deliver even more natural light in to the landing and down into the hallway.

The large double glazed window is accompanied by a central heating radiator underneath with a thermostat control.

Bedroom number two is a great size, located at the front of the house enjoying that larger double glazed window to shed plenty of natural light. Neutrally presented the bedroom is perfect for the younger member of the family to have their own space, leaving plenty floor space for a large bed, free-standing wardrobes, as well as a homework and gaming desk. We love the traditional and period features of tall skirting boards, ceiling coving, as well as there being a central heating radiator.

The third bedroom is located at the rear of the house enjoying that stunning garden view through the double glazed window. A neutrally presented bedroom, which would if needed, accommodate a double bed, but works really well as a spacious single bedroom, leaving plenty of floor space for the additional free-standing furniture.
