About this property

  • A detached family house constructed during the 1960's and adapted and remodelled by the present owners. The property provides two storey accommodation and yet offers further growth potential subject to consents. Accommodating many modern enhancements, there are double glazed windows throughout, some underfloor heating and a modern kitchen and bathroom. Extensive works were also undertaken to the infrastructure with new plumbing, a gas fired combination boiler, CCTV installation and an intruder alarm.
    The vestibule doubles as a boot room and includes a solid front door with a fixed pane window which provides light. The reception hall with dogleg staircase leads to the first floor and has an understairs cupboard. The sitting room lies to the front with a vaulted ceiling and gas fire and includes a Travertine floor which extends throughout the circulation areas and the open plan room. This offers live/work prospects and is dual aspect. The core and fulcrum of the home is the open plan living/kitchen and dining room, generous in scale and providing the three designated functions. Dual aspect and with bifolds to both front and rear and with electrically operated Velux top lights, there are pleasant and relaxing spaces. Audio visual equipment has been installed for a recessed TV in the living area and there is downlighting throughout. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of wall and base units with Silestone worksurfaces and there is an island incorporating a wine fridge, breakfast bar, twin bowl sink and plumbing for the dishwasher. The gas hob has extractor hood over in addition to an AEG double oven. The utility, formally a kitchen includes a further array of wall and base units and has plumbing for the prerequisite white goods, space for a fridge/freezer and there is an auxiliary oven and grill. The gas fired boiler is located here and supplies the domestic hot water and central heating. A shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.
    There are four first floor bedrooms with varying views and orientations, the principal bedroom has dual aspect windows and a timber floor and these run off a well-lit landing with access to a boarded loft space with a retractable ladder. The family bathroom has a comprehensive suite with tiled floor, freestanding bath, twin vanity units and WC, as well as a walk in shower.
    The property sits central within the plot with a tarmacadam drive offering not only parking but also turning. The front garden is laid to lawn with a shaped flower border and bounded by evergreen trees that provide privacy from the road. The rear garden is also laid to lawn with a raised tier with loose chippings which provides al fresco dining, there are elevated borders and an additional garden store. A composite deck lies directly off the kitchen and dining areas, front and rear.

Houses built in the 60's always offer blank canvasses in my opinion and this house is no exception. Whilst significant works have already been undertaken, there remains plenty more untapped opportunity in this particular home.
