Substantially extended to provide a wealth of versatile accommodation. There are four reception rooms with one of these ideal for use as a fourth bedroom, a ground floor bathroom, a utility and the hallway has stained glass. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Outside is a long drive, a garage and a superb garden.

‘Colster’ is a truly exceptional traditional home offering much more than the average semi-detached residence, especially in the sheer scale of accommodation it offers and the options this provides for an owner. The subject property has been massively upgraded and enlarged by the current owners, who have taken this home to another level. It now offers a vast array of versatile space which could lend itself to dual occupancy and those needing four bedrooms or even five, with an additional reception room at the rear of the ground floor ideal as a bedroom and the garage providing conversion potential for a fifth (subject to planning permission). The outside space beautifully compliments the interiors, affording the property with generous parking at the front for multiple vehicles and a magnificent family-friendly garden at the rear which is extensive in size and not overlooked.

The property is beautifully set behind a sweeping gravelled driveway which can cater for around six cars and leads to the covered porch and garage. The garage is accessed via an up and over door and features power, lighting and has been plastered out allowing for ease of conversion should the new owner decide to create additional living accommodation.

Once through the front door, one is greeted by a welcoming hallway complete with delightful original stained glass windows and featuring stairs rising to the first floor, storage cupboard and doors leading to the sitting room, living room, kitchen and WC.

Sitting room
The light and airy bay fronted sitting room has a wonderful Art Deco fireplace as a centrepiece, which is still regularly used for open fires by the owners.

Living room
There is a living room off the hallway with glazed double doors leading to an adjoining dining room. This in turn flows nicely in the kitchen and has a skylight and double glazed French doors opening on to the garden.

The spacious kitchen/diner is well presented to a contemporary standard and features a high vaulted style ceiling with skylight making for a lovely light feel. Comprising matching wall and base units, solid wood surfaces with inset sink drainer, oven and hob with extractor above, integrated dishwasher, American style fridge freezer, double glazed window overlooking the garden and internal door leading to the utility.

The utility is a good size and has solid wood worktops, wall and base units, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer, skylight, door to the garage and an inner hallway leading to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation. The utility could lend itself to conversion in to a second kitchen to form part of a self-contained annexe in conjunction with the adjoining bathroom and additional reception room, which is presently used as a gym.

Garden room / bedroom four
Beyond the hallway is a lobby area with a double glazed door to the garden and internal doors leading to the bathroom and additional reception room/ fourth bedroom. The latter is a highly versatile room, currently being utilised as a gym and which could easily lend itself to a bedroom, featuring a skylight, tiled flooring, large walk-in cupboard/ wardrobe and double glazed French doors opening beautifully on to the garden.

Ground floor bathroom
The ground floor bathroom is well appointed and has a panelled bath with shower above, tiled walls, chrome radiator, skylight pedestal wash basin and low level WC.

First floor
The first floor landing is spacious enough to accommodate a seating area or desk and has a double glazed window to the side aspect.

Bedrooms one and two
Bedrooms one and two are both good sized double rooms and feature two built-in cupboards. Bedroom two also has a pretty period fireplace with attractive tiling.

Bedroom three
Bedroom three is a good single room with double glazed window to the front aspect and built-in storage.

The first floor bathroom is generous in size and nicely appointed, comprising panelled bath with shower above, pedestal wash basin, low level WC, chrome radiator, tiled flooring and airing cupboard housing the 'Worcester' boiler.

The rear garden is a fantastic feature of the property and will appeal to keen gardeners and those looking for large family-friendly outdoor space. Extensive in size and not overlooked, this neatly maintained garden also benefits from a sunny south westerly aspect. Comprising paved patio with Camellia bush, outside lighting and tap, plus a brick built potting shed, wood storage and lockable shed all with lighting. Beyond here is a long flat lawn with seating area and bordered by well stocked beds featuring many perennial plants along with specimen trees including lovely palms. At the far end of the garden is a delightful area which is awash with bluebells in the spring under the shade of a mature eucalyptus.

Some of the pictures of the garden were taken one summer.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.

Administration Fee - refundable on exchange

An administration 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.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration 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.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
