*FIRST VIEWINGS SATURDAY 23RD OCTOBER* A charming four bedroom, two bathroom, Edwardian family home benefitting from a beautifully established 70ft south facing rear garden as well as two private off-street parking spaces.
This well-presented period property is full of character, and we understand in its formative years was once two separate cottages. The current owners have happily resided in the property for over 26 years, undertaking major improvement works during their tenure. Notably, a ground floor rear extension and a loft conversion in 2001 and further structural alterations to the ground floor (rear) in 2014. The latter works creating a lovely open-plan kitchen/dinning/family space spreading out into the garden – prerequisite these days for modern family living.
You enter the house via an attractive 'pitched roof' canopied entrance porch. This, in turn, opens up to a lovely reception hall, currently used as a music room with balustraded open staircase to the first floor landing. Off to the right is an inviting sitting room with bay window, pretty alcove shelving, and an original fireplace complete with wood burner. Both receptions are laid with oak flooring.
The kitchen/dining/ living room is an impressive space measuring approx. 21' x 20' | 6.4 x 6m. The modern kitchen is fitted with granite worktops and range of integrated appliances to include; dishwasher, twin Caple wine coolers, Siemens combination oven/microwave inset to the island unit, and a large Stoves range cooker. There is further kitchen storage adjacent to the dining area, which opens to the family/sitting area with tri-fold doors to the garden. To complete the ground floor accommodation there is a utility room with an under-counter space for a washing machine and a separate dryer, and a cupboard housing Megaflow water tank. There is a separate guest cloakroom / W.C., housing a Worcestershire boiler (installed 2019).
Upstairs, the first floor landing features stripped wood panel doors to all rooms. There are three good doubles (Bedroom Two with original fireplace) all being served by a beautifully appointed four piece bathroom with double ended roll-top bath, and large shower enclosure with Velux skylight window (works completed Nov 2020). Up on the second floor is a pretty double aspect loft bedroom with eaves storage, and an ensuite shower room with w.c. and sink.
Externally there is off-street parking to the front garden, whilst the rear enjoys a sunny aspect. There is a patio/terrace adjacent to the house, central lawn with borders that are extensively planted with a variety of plants, trees and shrubs including an established Bramley apple tree and a Japanese Maple. To the rear of the garden are two storage sheds and, beyond, hard standing with carport. EPC D.
