Set behind an attractive front garden with colourful flower filled borders, this handsome whitewashed detached home presents the perfect opportunity for buyers who are looking for a small renovation project, or to update a house to create their own dream home.
Entering the property through a handy storm porch you continue into a light filled entrance hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and a useful under stairs cupboard. To the front of the house is a charming sitting room with a lovely box bay window and feature fireplace with a stone surround that continues into the chimney breast recess to provide a handy base for the television. To the rear of the house sits the bright and airy dining room with another feature fireplace, this time inset with an alluring cast iron wood burner. French doors lead out from the dining room to a small lean-to conservatory and the garden.
The dual aspect kitchen, whilst relatively compact has everything that you would need, with a range of beech fronted units, marble effect worksurface and space for a cooker. The kitchen sits adjacent to the dining room, and therefore there is huge potential to combine the two rooms into a larger kitchen/dining room if desired.
To the rear of the house, accessed only externally is a handy utility store/room and gardener's toilet. The utility/storeroom also links to the back of the single garage.
On the first floor are the three bedrooms, two good sized doubles and the third a generous single room. Completing the accommodation is a smart shower room, which is fully tiled and has chrome towel rail and modern fittings.
Outside, the rear garden is truly delightful, larger than you might expect it has been lovingly planted over the years to create what is now an incredibly private, well stocked, and pretty space for all the family to enjoy. There is a patio area to enjoy eating and entertaining outside in the summer, a pretty water feature, greenhouse, and a small vegetable garden. The garden is separated into two by thoughtfully planted trees with the rear garden thus becoming a peaceful and tranquil retreat to potter away at your hearts content.
As previously mentioned, the property comes with a single garage, off street parking for two cars and is full of potential to extend and improve (subject to the necessary consents).
