Substantial semi detached family home with extensive accommodation and fantastic rear garden backing onto playing fields.
10 Metcalfe Road is a well-proportioned semi-detached property, constructed during the 1950s of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof and has recently replaced double glazed windows throughout.
The property extends to approximately 2,183 sq ft of well planned, flexible accommodation laid out over ground, first and second floors. The house is accessed via a wide tiled hallway, to the left hand side is a spacious family room, whilst beyond and following an extension during 2008 is a long double' sitting and dining room which has an attractive open fireplace with limestone surround, oak floors and has a vaulted ceiling to the rear along with glazed double doors to the garden. To the right is a useful additional bedroom which could lend itself to being a guest bedroom/home office or indeed could be used as a student's bedroom if an additional income is required as there is an en suite shower room within.
The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wooden fronted cabinetry and comprises five burner stainless steel hob including a wok burner, Bosch double ovens and a pull out larder cupboard. There is a granite topped central island with cabinetry and integrated dishwasher beneath. This space extends into a breakfast room, again this is vaulted and has glazed doors to the rear. A spacious WC/laundry and cloakroom completes the ground floor.
At first floor are four double bedrooms, the main bedroom, situated to the rear also has an en suite/Jack & Jill bath and shower room which can also be used as an additional family bathroom as there is also access from the landing. Three of these bedrooms have ample built-in wardrobes and the fourth has a useful wash basin. There is also a shower room with WC along with a further WC adjacent on this floor.
The second floor bedroom has wide windows and built-in wardrobes and plenty of storage and given its size and shape could easily lend itself to a teenager's den'. There are uninterrupted views of the garden and neighbouring gardens and over the school playing fields beyond. The accommodation which is well presented throughout can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplans. Solar panels have been installed which contributes to smaller fuel bills along with an annual income of around £600.
The property is set back from the road beyond a block paved driveway which provides parking for two-three cars and enclosed by laurel hedging with mature shrub beds within. There is a locked gate which leads to a covered side passage, easily wide enough for bikes/tools storage and laundry drying etc. Beyond, the former single garage has been converted to a useful wooden clad home gym/studio or home office and has a dual aspect including glazed double doors. Of special note, the rear garden is particularly long (123'/37.5m) and divided into two lawns by a pebbled planted garden enclosed by railway sleepers, to the side are raised planters along with a full width paved terrace which is ideal for eating out and entertaining. To the far end is a salad/vegetable area and timber shed. The gardens back onto school playing fields.
