As you enter, you immediately feel the extra width of this special house. To your right, you find the very well-proportioned reception room with its high ceilings, period features and a large bay window. In the centre of the house is a separate dining room or second reception room, with glass panelled French doors leading into the kitchen. With tiled flooring running throughout, this spacious kitchen breakfast room spans the width of the house and is perfect for both family life and entertaining. The kitchen area itself comprises extensive fitted wall and base units, multiple appliances, and pretty views over the garden. There is additional area for a large kitchen table situated underneath skylights which make this room particularly bright. The ground floor also benefits from a downstairs shower room and larger than average cellar.
From the kitchen, and through French doors, you step into the substantial 55ft garden with well-established beds and grass lawn. At the end of the garden there is the added bonus of a sizeable shed for additional storage as well as a decked area which is ideal for outside entertaining.
Situated on the first floor, you find three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. To the front of the house is the principal bedroom with large sash windows and built-in wardrobes. Adjacent is the second good sized double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and a large window overlooking the rear of the property. To the rear of this floor is the third double bedroom, with extensive built-in wardrobes, and again with views over the garden. Next door is the family bathroom featuring a bath with shower overhead.
This property is a unique opportunity for a purchaser to extend this house into a significant family home of nearly 3,000 sq. ft., subject to the necessary planning consents. There is a generous loft space extending to nearly 500 sq. for possible conversion into additional accommodation as well as the possibility of extending to the rear of the property, both over the existing rear mezzanine and to the rear of the kitchen.
