About this property

  • 14 Champneys Walk is a modern three storey townhouse in an enviable position overlooking college playing field, on a no through road cul-de-sac.

    The property which is built of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plan and is being sold with no upward chain.

    The house is approached from a covered driveway, with a pathway to one side leading to access to the rear garden and further parking to the other, which leads to a recessed wooden front door. Adjacent to the front door is a storage cupboard containing the electric and gas meters.

    Beyond the wide and deep hallway is a well-proportioned reception room with sliding doors which allow access and views over the rear garden. To the right there is a dining room or further small reception room once again with access and views over the rear garden. Accessible from both the smaller reception room and the hallway there is a well-appointed kitchen with wall and floor mounted units which could benefit from some modernisation. A WC and under-stairs storage complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom spans across from the front to the rear of the property. This light and airy room benefits from not only a well-proportioned dressing room but also access to a stunning balcony facing east over the College playing fields. There is a further bedroom which could also be used as a first floor reception room, which has the benefit of sliding doors and access to the aforementioned balcony as well as a large built-in storage cupboard. There is a large shower room with modern sanitary ware and a large walk-in cupboard containing the boiler, which provides more storage on this floor.

    On the second floor, there are three further good size bedrooms with a family bathroom, as well an airing cupboard that contains the water tank. From the second floor, there is access to the boarded loft that provides ample storage space.

    Outside to the rear the garden has been laid mainly to paving with low maintenance in mind and there is a small summerhouse to one side.
