Key Features


Accomodation & Measurements

Front Garden
Mainly laid to lawn, the front garden is bordered to the front by a low wall with decorative railings and a pea shingle driveway leading up to the detached garage with off road parking for several vehicles. A raised area wraps the side of the house providing a platform from the French doors of the living room, and joining to the porch at the side.
Main porch
A sizeable porch has been added to the side of the house where the front door is located. uPVC construction over brick with two-thirds height glazing on two sides, the porch is accessed by floating mullion French doors and comprises white washed walls, a quarry tile floor, security sensor light, and some original features such as the tiling on the door step and window ledges of the original external wall. Two windows through to the entrance hall and timber glazed front door.
Entrance Hall
16' 10" x 12' 1" (5.13m x 3.68m) An impressive entrance hall with original brick fireplace and hearth inlaid with quarry tiles, radiator, thermostat, ceiling pendant light, original plaster covings, power sockets, telephone point, electric storage heater and carpet. Open plan quarter-turn stairs to the first floor with original hand rails and newel posts and a full height under stair storage cupboard with light. Doors lead to the living room, dining room and ground floor toilet. Two windows through to the porch and the fully glazed front door lend borrowed light to the sizeable room.
Living Room
19' 11" x 17' 3" (6.07m x 5.26m) An original timber glazed door leads from the entrance hall to a very generously proportioned sitting room at the front of the house with double glazed box bay window overlooking the front garden, and French doors giving access to the side. Original covings and decorative ceiling, fireplace with tiled hearth, surround and mantle, two radiators, power sockets, four sets of wall lights, telephone point and TV aerial.
Dining room
12' 2" x 10' 10" (3.71m x 3.30m) Crying out to be linked with the kitchen to make a good sized kitchen/diner, this room offers an original Aga stove with quarry tiled hearth, larder cupboard and oversized timber glazed door to the sun room. Radiator, carpet and power sockets. A wide sliding door with original obscured glazed door and side panel leads to the kitchen.
12' 2" x 6' (3.71m x 1.83m) The kitchen comprises a range of dated wall and base units and is in need of updating. Wall mounted boiler with timer control panel, part tiled walls, vinyl floor, power sockets, sink and drainer.

Stairs and landing
Quarter-turn stairs to the first floor with original hand rails and newel posts, and carpet. Loft hatch, ceiling pendant light and airing cupboard with shelves and electric consumer unit.
Master suite
17' 3" x 13' 8" (5.26m x 4.17m) The master bedroom has been divided to provide a suite of two bedrooms and a hall/dressing area with built in storage. The changes to the original room could easily be removed to restore the master bedroom to its original size with dual aspect windows and original features such as high skirtings which have been retained in each of the rooms. The modification also meant that the fireplace had to be boarded over as the stud wall dividing the two bedrooms falls in the middle of the chimney breast, so there is the potential to reinstate that also.
Bedroom 1

Front hall / dressing area
A small hallway area with built in wardrobe/cupboard space, carpet and doors to each of the two front bedrooms and further door to the landing.
Bedroom 3
12' 11" x 10' 9" (3.94m x 3.28m) maximum. Located along the side of the house with two double glazed windows, carpet and two double built in cupboards/wardrobes, narrow alcove cupboard and ceiling pendant light.
