The house is offered to the market in excellent condition whist still maintaining plenty of period character and charm. The house briefly comprises of 2 large reception rooms, a large kitchen dining room, 3 double bedrooms, bathroom, shower room and beautiful bijoux rear garden. The property also benefits from a cellar and huge loft space that could easily be converted to create additional bedrooms and a shower room (subject to planning consent).

This handsome house is set back from the street with a walled front garden, there is also a lovely silver birch tree on the street that offers some additional privacy and shade. It has a typical Victorian facade with yellow stock bricks and large sash bay windows surrounded with ornate masonry.

Through the front porch and large Victorian door is a substantial entrance hall that houses the staircase with storage underneath and offers access to all the rooms. The hallway has lovely period features such as cornicing and corbels.

The 2 reception rooms run front to back and are divided by large double doors which allows the rooms to be separated or used as one large double reception room depending on the occasion. The front reception room has a lovely period fireplace as a centrepiece, high ceilings with cornicing and a impressive sash bay window that floods the room with natural light. The second reception room/dining room at the rear has similar features and french doors leading to the rear garden.

The kitchen dining room has been extended creating a huge space for cooking and entertaining, at the far end of the room there are french doors leading to the garden and double glazed windows along the side of the room offer additional light. There is an abundance of storage in the white gloss base mounted units with wooden worktops above housing a 5 ring range cooker with extractor above and the sink on the opposite side.

At the far end of the room is the dining area which offers enough space for a large 6 seat dining table and chairs. There are fitted white gloss floor to ceiling cupboards along one side for additional storage and another double glazed window on the other side.

The garden has been very neatly manicured by the current owners with a patio area just off the kitchen, there is a lawn surrounded by borders containing an array of colourful perennial flowers and shrubs. A hardwood decked seating area is at the rear and is perfect for lounging on those late summer evenings.

Upstairs, a half landing leads to the back of the house where there is the third double bedroom and access to the family bathroom and shower room. The bedroom is a good size double with carpeted floors and has a lovely view of the garden through two large sash windows.

The family bathroom is adjacent, styled in a classical Victorian theme to fit in with the house and is accompanied by a heated towel rail and plantation shutters on the sash window.
