A fantastic traditional bay-fronted home, dating back to the inter-war period, nicely tucked away on a large corner plot at the head of this small cul-de-sac off Hoo Road. The property has been beautifully maintained, extended and upgraded by the current owner, providing a turnkey-ready home with a fantastic garden at the rear. Immaculate throughout, it includes a spacious through lounge/diner, which has been made open plan in the past. At the rear of the ground floor is an extended kitchen, recently refitted less than two years ago. The roof and all tiled areas of the property were replaced six years ago. On the first floor are three bedrooms serviced by a shower room.

It is not purely the condition of this property that sets it apart from others, as the house benefits from a large corner plot, meaning the rear gardens are extensive and enjoy a private wooded backdrop with views through the trees in winter. The large plot provides excellent future development potential if required and so too does a large, attached garage which could easily be converted subject to relevant planning permissions.


Driveway
The property is approached via a block-paved driveway to the front, providing parking for two vehicles and leading to the garage. The latter is wider and larger than the standard single garage, with an up-and-over door to the front, power and lighting. Upon entering through the front door, one is greeted by a welcoming hallway laid to wood laminate flooring. The hallway features doors radiating to the living room and kitchen, as well as stairs rising to the first floor with a storage cupboard underneath.

Living / Dining Room
The spacious and light living / dining room runs from the front to the back of the property, featuring dual-aspect windows, both with quality wooden shutters. There are fireplaces at each end, one for decoration and another housing a gas fire with a surround, and there is wood laminate flooring and wall lights.

Kitchen
The kitchen, extended in the past and refitted within the last two years to a quality contemporary finish, features solid wood work surfaces housing an inset ‘Belfast’ style sink, matching wall and base units, downlighters and various integrated appliances, including a grill and oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. At one end is a utility area with a storage cupboard and a wall-mounted ‘Worcester’ combination boiler. A double-glazed door from the kitchen leads to a useful lobby area, great for storing shoes and coats, with doors leading to the garage and the rear garden.

First Floor
As you ascend the stairs to the first floor, the landing has a side-facing window and a loft hatch accessing the roof space.

Bedroom One
This light and airy, bay-fronted double bedroom has a television point and a front-facing window with white wooden shutters.

Bedroom Two
The second bedroom is another good-sized double room with two fitted wardrobes/storage, a loft hatch with a ladder and a window to the rear offering delightful views over the garden and woodland beyond.

Bedroom Three
This cosy single bedroom has a window to the front aspect, which allows an abundance of natural light to fill the space.

Shower Room
The bedrooms are serviced by a well-appointed shower room featuring tiled walls, a corner shower cubicle, glass blocks, a washstand, an extractor fan and a low-level WC.


Gardens
This property benefits from the most wonderful mature tiered garden, which is extensive in size and beautifully maintained. This superb outside space is completely private as it directly borders a wooded copse, providing a leafy backdrop to the far end of the garden and views of Kidderminster town through the trees. The garden comprises several levels, starting with a top section of manicured lawn with a paved patio, a circular seating area for enjoying alfresco meals and mature flower beds. The next tier down is a flat lawned area on which stands a wooden shed and beyond here is a sloping section of the garden, which drops down to the far boundary and is enclosed by mature hedging and fencing.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.
