An extensively improved four/five-bedroom family home a short distance from the town centre and Gillotts School with planning permission to extend.
This architect-designed family home was formerly a Victorian cottage which has been extensively improved and extended over the years to create a bright, spacious and well-planned family home for the modern day.
The detached property has excellent kerb appeal and is beautifully presented inside and out, with a contemporary décor scheme featuring soft colours, natural materials including oak floors and heritage detailing including a brick fireplace with oak overmantle and slate hearth, exposed beams and fitted cabinetry. This is beautifully complemented by upgraded windows and doors, stylish bathrooms with premium sanitaryware and a sleek, contemporary kitchen with range cooker.
The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout and extends to about 2342 sq ft, with the ideal layout for family life. The welcoming entrance hall has an open staircase to the first floor and a w.c., and leads to a triple aspect sitting room, separate family room and kitchen/dining room with adjoining utility.
Upstairs there are four good-size double bedrooms including a principal bedroom with en suite, and a family bathroom. There is a second-floor storage space which could be converted to an extra bedroom (subject to the necessary consents).
There is an excellent home office space above the detached garage, with triple aspect outlook.
Outside: The property is located on a quiet spur off Manor Road and is set back from the road behind a gated driveway, which provides not only ample off-street parking but also access to a detached double garage with converted roof space above.
The rear garden can be accessed around both sides of the house and is mostly lawned, with a separate terrace and decking area, kitchen garden with vegetable plots and a number of attractive borders. The garden also features a useful shed.
Agents Note: There is planning permission to extend at the side that will creating a larger utility room, bedroom en suite upstairs and a larger family bathroom. Full details available on line or at the office. Planning reference P20/S4836/HH.
