A striking modern house which has been extended and improved from its original 1930's form. Located in the village of Backwell, set back from Station Road with plenty of off-street parking and a single garage.
On entrance to the property, you are greeted by a very welcoming entrance hall which gives an immediate felling of space and calm with superb colour and lighting choices. Immediately on your right you will find the main sitting room which, like the rest of the property oozes character with high ceilings finished off with stylish coving and dual aspect windows to let light flood in. There is also the original fireplace with a marble surround housing a fully functional coal effect gas fire. On the opposite side of the hallway there is a double bedroom currently being used as a guest room, again with dual aspect windows and laminate flooring which also continues down the entrance hall. The second double bedroom opens from the hallway on the right and affords ample space for recessed wardrobes either side of the chimney breast. The family bathroom is light and airy being fully tilled with a shower over the bath, WC and separate wash basin.
The fourth bedroom is not to be mistaken as a "box room". It is a single bedroom, however, with some tactful furniture placing you have a cosy single bedroom with storage and French doors out onto a beautiful sunny patio area.
The hub of the house is the stylish kitchen dining room, offering a range of shaker style wall and base units, a six-ring gas cooker, large stainless-steel sink with two windows overlooking the parking area. The dining area currently has a feature electric fireplace affording ample space for a dining table and chairs while keeping the French doors open to let the outside in. There is the additional benefit of a separate utility room to the rear of the property with a door to the garden. It has a range of fitted cupboards and stainless-steel sink with space to house a washing machine and tumble dryer. It also houses a Vaillant combi boiler (installed in March 2021)
Upstairs you will find a further sizeable double bedroom with eaves storage, skylights and its own tranquil wet room. This bedroom can easily be used as the main bedroom or for visiting family and friends.
The garden at this property is outstanding. It has been carefully designed while taking advantage of the South-West facing aspect. There is a workshop - perfect for those who like to "potter around" and an outdoor home office which would make a lovely summerhouse/bar or to be kept as a home office which comes in very handy in these times. From the pond to the raised herb garden to the mature trees this garden really is "the icing on the cake" to this property, creating a tranquil environment for all the family to enjoy.
