This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a traditional home dating back to the inter-war period, which has been in the same family for many years and comes to the market for the first time in several decades. The property has been well-cared for and has only been slightly extended, leaving plenty of scope to further enlarge subject to the relevant planning permissions being granted.

Internally the light and airy accommodation exhibits many character features associated with the period, including stained glass in the hallway, picture rails and an Art Deco style tiled fireplace within the back living room.

A real feature of this wonderful home is the huge rear garden, which extends a long way from the property and enjoys a sunny west-facing orientation.

69 St. Johns Avenue is approached from the roadside via a long tarmacadam driveway providing parking for around three to four vehicles. The driveway leads to the detached garage, which is recessed at the side of the house and would benefit from repairs or replacement.

The property is accessed by a delightful period stained-glass front door, which leads into a welcoming hallway featuring stained-glass windows, a picture rail, wood panelling and stairs rising to the first floor with useful storage underneath.

There are two living rooms and a kitchen situated on the ground floor.

Dining room
The front sitting room has a bay window, a picture rail and a fireplace with a tiled inset and wooden surround.

Living room
At the rear of the property is a light and airy living room, which has been previously extended and enjoys lovely views of the garden. This wonderful room includes a window to the rear aspect, a picture rail and a brick Art Deco style feature fireplace housing a gas fire.

The kitchen is located adjacent to the rear living room and offers scope to knock through and make open plan if required. This room comprises wall and base units, with work surfaces incorporating an inset sink drainer. There is space for various appliances including a cooker, a fridge freezer and a washing machine.

The kitchen also features quarry-tiled flooring and a glazed door to the rear porch and gardens beyond. From the rear porch, a doorway leads to an outside WC, which has a wall-mounted washbasin, a low-level WC and houses the wall-mounted Worcester boiler.

First floor
The landing grants access to the bedrooms and the house shower room. There is also access to the loft via a hatch.

Master bedroom
Situated to the front of the property is a spacious bay-fronted main bedroom benefitting from fitted mirror-fronted wardrobes. This lovely room also has a picture rail and a bay window to the front aspect.

Bedrooms two and three
Bedroom two is a spacious double bedroom featuring pleasant views of the rear garden and has a window to the rear aspect.
The third bedroom is a single room including a window to the front aspect.

Shower room
Completing the accommodation is a light and airy shower room, which has been modernised and comprises a shower cubicle backed by panelling, a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC and a frosted window.

The mature rear gardens are a wonderful feature of the property, being extensive in size and neatly maintained with the added benefit of a sunny west-facing backdrop.

The first section includes a paved patio, which gives way to long sweeping lawns featuring mature borders and established fruit trees plus a greenhouse.

The upper section of the garden is nicely secluded and includes another long section of lawn bordered by mature privet hedging and culminating in two greenhouses.

The property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water and mains drainage.
