Located on this quiet residential street offering an abundance of character and charm is this very spacious ground floor 2 double bedroom garden maisonette occupying the whole ground floor of this lovely end of terrace Victorian house and comes with a large LANDSCAPED REAR GARDEN and front garden.

The property is being offered to the market CHAIN FREE, in good condition, with hard flooring and double-glazed windows throughout. The maisonette also benefits from being sold with a SHARE OF FREEHOLD.

The house has plenty of character with an exposed red brick façade and a square bay window. It is set back from the street by a walled front garden which belongs to the flat, a pathway leads to the front door and there is side return access to the rear garden.

The Maisonette offers an abundance of space, 1109 sqft of well laid out living accommodation and the garden is 74ft (17m) long with direct access from the kitchen dining room.

Upon entry there is a long entrance hall offering access to all the rooms and has a row of large floor to ceiling storage cupboards that is ideal for hiding all manner of items. There is also an attractive original stained glass window at the end of the hall.

The main reception room is at the front of the property and offers very generous proportions, approximately 5m x 5m! It is also oozing with period features such as original exposed floorboards, high ceilings with cornicing, a feature fireplace with cupboards and shelving in the alcoves and a large square bay window that fills the room with natural light.

Adjacent is the main double bedroom which also offers generous proportions and exposed wooden floorboards with a double-glazed window looking out to the side return.

In the centre of the flat is a luxurious family bathroom which is clad in stylish blue gloss metro wall tiles around the bath and separate shower enclosure, neutral wood effect tiled floors, a contemporary wash basin with vanity unit below and a toilet. A frosted window to the side allows for additional ventilation and natural light. There is also a large storage cupboard where the washing machine is plumbed in.

Next is the second bedroom which is also a good size, this room has exposed wooden floorboards that have been painted white, a feature fireplace in the corner and a window that looks out to the side return.

The whole of the rear of the flat is occupied by a lovely open planned kitchen dining area that leads out to the garden.
The kitchen is set to one side and wraps around one side of the room. There are plenty of wall and base mounted units with a solid wood worktop housing the induction hob with extractor above and a butler sink. All the other appliances are integrated including a tall fridge freezer and a dishwasher.
Opposite the kitchen units there are two large windows that look out to a side return, this is also a nice area for a dining table and chairs.

Beyond the kitchen is a versatile space which could be used as a dining area or a play area for kids. Bi-fold doors slide back to offer direct access to a raised patio area which is clad in sandstone slabs. Perfect spot for al fresco dining in the warmer months!

The garden has been lovingly landscaped by the current owners. From the patio, there are a couple of steps down to a sandstone path which is bordered by a lush green lawn on one side and a bed of mature plants and shrubs to the other. Towards the end of the garden, the path meanders around a large bed that is packed full of an array of well selected plants that will provide interest all year round and a burst of colour in the summer!
At the far end of the garden there is a large workshop/studio/office/shed that is insulated and powered with electricity. Perfect if you work from home but want a separate space. There is also rear access via a gate that leads out to Como Road which is super handy for bike access and gardening!
