Extended and refurbished by the current owners the property offers three bedrooms, a large open-plan kitchen dining room, a spacious reception room and a very useful converted cellar.

The Front
The property is approached via a Scottish pebble driveway with a path leading down the side of the property to the front door and further down is a private entrance to the rear garden. The front door opens into the hallway with stairs to the first floor and a door to the fully converted cellar, currently used as a music room but could become further accommodation, a playroom or home office.

Reception Room
To the right of the hallway is lovely bay fronted reception room which has retained many fantastic period features including picture rails, cornicing and a ceiling rose. There is also a feature fireplace with log burning stove.

Directly on the right is a guest cloakroom with a Belfast sink (period “Cleaners” sink). There is contemporary white close coupled WC and some very useful and cleverly designed storage with space for a washing machine and a dryer.

Open-Plan Kitchen Dining Room
The large kitchen dining room has a beautiful orangery- style extension with a wonderful lantern skylight flooding the space with natural light. Full width doors open out to the garden and terrace area creating the perfect option for indoor/outdoor entertaining.

The kitchen has been thoughtfully set out to maximise its use. Fitted with a combination of contemporary cream gloss Shaker-style wall units that are complimented by the sage gloss base units, with brushed chrome handles and topped with a wood-effect work-surface. There is a tall cabinet surround for the fridge/freezer, a superb large range electric cooker with brushed steel extractor above and a white ceramic sink with drainer and two handled chrome mixer tap. High quality wood-effect laminate flooring runs throughout the kitchen/dining room and through into the hallway.

Bedrooms Two and Three
On the first floor, there is a good-sized double which could be used as the master bedroom with a window looking out to the front of the property and a built-in storage cupboard. Period features include an original fireplace, cornicing and ceiling rose. Opposite is a single bedroom overlooking the rear garden, currently utilised as a child’s bedroom.

To the right of the landing is a useful airing cupboard leading through to the family bathroom with painted wood panelling, marble tiled bath and shower area with an overhead traditional chrome mixer shower and bath screen. There is vanity sink with a traditional chrome two lever Monobloc tap on top of a painted vanity unit and a traditional close coupled WC.

Bedroom One
On the second floor, you will find a fantastic large double bedroom with clever eaves storage, a feature fireplace and dormer window providing a great view of the rear garden, the playing fields behind the property and the Church beyond.

You enter the garden via the side access or from the kitchen dining room. The terrace has block edge detail and a long lawn beyond. Raised brick planting beds either side lead to a pergola and large storage shed, perfect for storing gardening equipment.

Mains gas, electric, water and sewage. Gas fired central heating via combination boiler.

Reservation Fee - refundable on exchange

A reservation fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.

The reservation fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
