About this property

  • A charming and well-presented semi-detached Victorian house, with many classic period features including some sash windows, dado and picture rails, high ceilings, and a beautiful arched sash window framing the views of the rear garden from dining room.

    The house offers well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprising: a good sized entrance hall with space for storage, a comfortable sitting room with bay window complete with plantation shutters and wood burning stove, a dining room, which is open to the study area, which has French doors to the garden, a well-equipped kitchen with space for a range cooker, rear hall, store and ground floor cloakroom.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms, one with a shower, basin and WC, and a family bathroom. The house offers excellent scope for further extension, subject to consents and permission. Permission has previously been granted (now lapsed) for single and double rear extensions at the property.

    Outside, the property has off-street parking to the front. The south facing rear garden is fully enclosed, with gated side access and well-screened by mature trees. It extends to over 110 feet in length and is laid out on several levels with a patio (with outside tap) adjoining the house. Steps lead up to a raised terrace with space for table and chairs, and beyond the lawn which gently slopes away to the rear. There is a summer house, a timber shed, and a secure cat run at the rear of the garden, connected to the house via the cloakroom.

In my opinion this is a great family house - it's ideal for commuters and great for access to local schools - the station is just a third of a mile, and it offers space for working from home.
