About the Property
Originally built in the 1930’s this individually designed detached house is of traditional stone built construction under a pitched stone slate roof. Our clients purchased the property in 1986 and have enjoyed living in it as a comfortable family home. Throughout this period, the property has been well maintained and presented both internally and externally.
It was extended to the side circa 2004 – plans were passed initially to create a 2 storey extension but our clients opted for a single storey alternative which created flexible living accommodation which enabled them to accommodate a dependent relative. The riginal accommodation was also remodeled and an Oak framed garden room added to the front of the building.
The ground floor accommodation can be entered from the front where the original entrance porch provides access to the hall or at the rear where there is a utility room leading into a breakfast room area which in turn provides access to the living room and dining kitchen. The large living room is within the extension and feature a dual aspect windows and an opening into the garden room. There is also a study (or bedroom 4) and downstairs shower room off the living room.
The dining room is also of excellent proportions featuring windows to the front and rear, fitted with an excellent range of fitted units and range style cooker. To the other side of the hall is a another good sized reception room – the original lounge which is currently used as a dining room. Upstairs there is a landing area, 3 double bedrooms and a large house bathroom.
It has been well maintained by our clients and features a gas central heating system and uPVC double glazing through, with the exception of the garden room which is timber framed. The kitchen and bathroom fittings are of a good modern standard, although we anticipate that some buyers may wish to carry out further improvements to their own tastes. It is connected to all mains services.
