This impressive traditional home is being sold for the first time, having remained in the same family since it was built in 1952. Over the years the house has been thoughtfully extended to provide an extensive footprint of accommodation including a completely self-contained annexe with a separate entrance, a hallway, a kitchen, a shower room and bedroom/living space.

The interior is well-appointed and tastefully decorated throughout, with the main house offering two living rooms, a spacious open-plan family kitchen, and four good-sized bedrooms, with the master having an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, there is plenty of parking, an integral garage and at the rear a delightful mature west-facing garden.

68 Areley Common is accessed from the private road via a two-car driveway, which leads to the integral single garage. The garage has mahogany double doors to the front and benefits from power, lighting and a door providing access from the kitchen. The property also has two additional parking spaces situated opposite the driveway on the private road. Also to the front of the property is a nice garden area with a lawn, sunken wildlife pond and borders.

The property is accessed via a canopy porch leading to a spacious and welcoming hallway, which is tastefully appointed and has space for a settee. From here stairs rise to the first floor with storage underneath and doors radiate to the ground floor living rooms and kitchen.

Sitting room
To the front of the property is a lovely bay-fronted sitting room with parquet flooring, a picture rail and a feature fireplace. An internal door from this room leads to the annexe, which also has a separate entrance from the outside.

Living room
At the rear of the property, there is a wonderful living room enjoying a sunny west-facing outlook, with patio doors leading out to the rear garden. This room also has a picture rail and a feature fireplace housing an electric fire.

The spacious family kitchen enjoys the same light and airy westerly outlook and has a door leading to the garden.

The kitchen is tastefully appointed and provides a pleasant open-plan space ideal for contemporary family living and entertaining.

The kitchen area is laid to Karndean flooring and has quality bespoke fitments from Kitchen Gallery including cream-coloured wall and base units complemented by work surfaces incorporating an inset Belfast sink and accompanying antique-style tap.

There is also an integrated dishwasher and Rangemaster oven included in the sale.

Utility area
There is a useful utility area, which is open plan from the kitchen and has wall and base units, a Belfast sink, space and plumbing for appliances in addition to a wall-mounted Ideal combination boiler.

A door from the utility leads to a useful pantry featuring space for a fridge freezer and a door accessing the garage.

This wonderful self-contained annexe has a separate front door and an entrance hall, the latter is tastefully decorated and features wall lights, a Velux window, tiled flooring, useful built-in bookshelves and a cloaks cupboard.

The shower room and kitchen are accessed from the hallway, with the former having a Velux skylight, mosaic-tiled shower cubicle and low-level WC/washbasin combo.

There is a well-appointed kitchen fitted with bespoke units by Kitchen Gallery and also featuring a large skylight, tiled flooring, a twin circular sink/dryer with antique style tap, a built-in dresser, an oven and hob, space for a fridge and dishwasher or a washing machine.

A door from the kitchen leads nicely onto the rear of the annexe, which is currently used as a combined living space and bedroom. This spacious and light room is newly redecorated and enjoys a sunny west-facing aspect overlooking the rear garden, with French doors leading outside.

First floor
The first floor of the main residence is extremely spacious, comprising four bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Bedroom one
Bedroom one is a large double room featuring nice views of the nearby countryside and benefiting from accompanying ensuite facilities.

The ensuite bathroom is stylish and features a free-standing roll-top bathtub with claw feet, quality Karndean flooring, a chrome towel radiator and a solid wooden washstand with twin washbasin.

Bedrooms two, three and four
The second bedroom is a similarly large double room featuring mirror-fronted fitted wardrobes to one wall and lots of natural light flooding in from the west-facing window, which also provides great views of the local countryside.

Bedroom three is a good-sized double room benefiting from fitted mirror-fronted wardrobes, whilst bedroom four is a light and airy single room, with two windows to the front.

Family bathroom
The family bathroom is well-presented and includes Travertine tiled walls, a chrome towel radiator and fitted furniture incorporating storage, a washbasin and a low-level WC.

An extensive family home such as this deserves quality outside space and the rear garden here does not fail to deliver, being substantial in size, very private and boasting a sunny west-facing orientation. This delightful garden is extremely mature and packed with an array of plants and trees, including acer, laburnum, magnolia, apple trees and ornamental cherry to name but a few.

The garden has been nicely designed too and has a raised patio servicing the main house and the annexe, with steps from here leading to a large lawn interspersed by wildflower beds to encourage nature to flourish. There is a greenhouse included in the sale in addition to a shed tucked away in one corner and there is gated access to one side of the property.

The property has mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. There is broadband available at the property.
