About this property

  • Rarely available in such a fabulous central position, this property could suit people looking to downsize or those who want to create a slightly larger central home.

    40 Chesterton Hall Crescent was originally constructed as a bungalow during the 1950's and during the 1990's was enlarged to create accommodation at first floor. The property, which extends to 1,299 sq ft (with garage) is double glazed throughout and set back from the no-through road beyond a dwarf wall and paved frontage. Accessed from a side path, the front door leads to a storm canopy with entrance lobby. An inner door leads to the hallway which has a pine staircase and handrail leading to the first floor, with spacious storage underneath.

    To the front is a full width, triple aspect sitting room, which has a wide square low level bay window to maximise light to the front, original tiled fireplace and hearth, and a recess either side.

    Refurbished in 2017, the kitchen/dining room is situated to the rear with a bright triple aspect. It is fitted with buff white cabinetry, integrated AEG double oven and five burner gas hob, with spaces for fridge-freezer, washer and dishwasher. A downstairs double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a wide bay window, along with a shower room situated at the end of the hallway, completes the ground floor accommodation.

    At first floor is a double aspect second bedroom with wide dormer windows and built-in wardrobes, and an adjacent landing study, again with a wide dormer and a Velux skylight. With some reconfiguration, this could become an additional bedroom. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and a pleasant outlook over the neighbouring gardens.

    The driveway leads to an oversized single garage, which, subject to any consents being required, could lend itself to additional ground floor accommodation. There is side access to the small rear garden, which has been designed with low maintenance in mind. It is fully enclosed and mainly paved with flower and shrub beds. The property can be seen in greater detail on the floorplans and is available with no onward chain.

This is a great house in a near central position tucked away at the end of a favoured no through road, an absolute gem in my eyes
