Have you ever visited a house and come away filled with ideas on how you would create the perfect home for you and your family? Prepare to be surprised by this stone built semi-detached property because it really is so much more than it appears to be from the front. Let's step into the hallway. We'll immediately notice the traditional, wide floorboards, ornate ceiling covings and decorative mouldings, but we'll also see the uPVC double glazing, including some stained glasswork to retain the character, and the gas central heating. We have a great mix of traditional and modern in here, but the sheer size of accommodation surprised us. The main house is situated over the lower and upper ground floors, the first floor a separate flat which has been let to produce an income, though will be sold vacant. So, the three bedrooms could easily become six or seven... the house could be all kinds of things. Want an income? Keep the flat. Want a large family home? Convert it back to one house. Need some space for semi-dependent relatives? There's easy living on one level if required. The garden's large enough to extend into, too. Don't forget that it's beautifully fitted, too, particularly to the main house...
Lower Ground Floor
This rear hall leads out to a timber rear entrance and then into the gardens.
With the traditional wide floorboards and a modern twist with spotlighting. There is a large pantry style cupboard which might be used for a variety of things.
LOUNGE :4.92 x 4.60 (16'2 x 15'1 )
There are two focal points of this lovely living room: the French doors which look out over the gardens and the fireplace which is a modern take on a traditional design, with tiled inserts and a living flame style gas fire. There is a full height display cabinet fitted to one side of the chimney breast, too.
DINING KITCHEN :5.45 x 2.88 (17'11 x 9'5 )
A large family kitchen which extends into a dining area and also into a useful pantry through a small archway. The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of wood fronted base and wall units with matching drawers and display cupboards, complemented by granite work surfaces which incorporate the sink unit with mixer tap. There is contrasting tiling and a canopy hood above a Rangemaster gas range, whilst integrated appliances include a washing machine and a dishwasher.
STUDY :5.13 x 3.42 (16'10 x 11'3 )
A good sized study or dining room, depending on your requirements. The old stone shelving has been incorporated into a full height and full width shelving unit.
Fitted with a three piece white suite consisting of a low level WC, a wash basin set into a vanity style unit with a mirrored cabinet above, separated by tiling, and a shower enclosure. Spotlighting features in here, and there is a useful ladder style heated towel rail.
Upper Ground Floor
With wide, stained floorboards as well as decorative wall mouldings, covings and picture railing. The door has stained glass panels matching the fanlight.
The wide floorboards extend through into this room, and there is a dado rail separating the traditional two tone decor. There is also a useful airing cupboard. The bathroom suite consists of a roll top, claw foot slipper bath with Victorian style mixer tap with shower attachment, a wash basin and a WC.
BEDROOM ONE :4.92 x 4.58 (16'2 x 15'0 )
A good sized double room which looks out over the gardens to the rear. Wardrobes are fitted to either side of a feature decorative fireplace.
BEDROOM TWO :5.22 x 4.56 (17'2 x 15'0 )
A large, dual aspect bedroom with wardrobes fitted to one side of the chimney breast and matching shelving fitted to the other side. The real feature of this room for us is the decorative ceiling moulding which matches the ornate coving and the high level wall moulding which extends down to the picture rail. This runs round the entire room.
BEDROOM THREE :3.40 x 3.12 (11'2 x 10'3 )
A good sized, dual aspect double room which retains the original ceiling coving, and the door has a starburst patterned glass panel.

BEDROOM ONE :4.64 x 4.10 (15'3 x 13'5 )
With a traditional decorative fireplace and a large walk-in-wardrobe which might make an en-suite.

Another good double bedroom.
Fitted with a white three piece suite consisting of a low level WC, a wash basin and a bath with an overlying shower unit to part tiled walls. There is a useful airing cupboard.
The property has a parking area to the front, but it's to the rear where the real gardens are. Enclosed with walls and fencing is a good sized family garden which starts with a paved patio area and leads to a lawn with mature shrubs and trees. There's plenty of room to extend, too, subject to planning consent.
