Owner's Comments

"The house over the years has more than met our lifestyle needs from providing comfortable spacious living to hosting large parties in the garden."

"Living in the area for over 15 years we have benefitted from the green surroundings, close proximity to the city centre and easy access to the M3/M27 making for an easy commute to work."

Introduction

Well screened from the road and enjoying a high degree of natural privacy the generous accommodation that boasts three reception rooms and four double bedrooms will appeal to the growing family whilst the spacious ground floor bedroom and adjacent shower room could be used by long term guests or provide a home office. Planning permission has been granted for meaningful extensions and alterations to nearby properties within the neighbourhood and there may be similar scope here (STP) to create additional accommodation and to enhance the external appearance if desired. Planning permission has previously been granted for the demolition of the existing property and the construction of a new six bedroom detached dwelling (plans are available for inspection by interested parties).

Description

The deep entrance porch has a marble tiled floor and an entrance door opens to the large reception hall that displays parquet woodblock flooring that flows seamlessly through to the principal reception rooms and creates a favourable impression when entering the property. A staircase ascends to the first floor and there is a well appointed cloakroom whilst doors allow access to all rooms.

The dual aspect lounge is a well proportioned reception room also with a full height window to the porch and a feature fireplace that provides a pleasing focal point for the room. Sliding doors lead through to the conservatory that enjoys pleasant views over the garden with double doors opening to the patio whilst the open aspect to the dining room creates a impressive social flow and is ideal for entertaining family and friends. The generous dual aspect third reception room is flexible in its usage either as a formal dining room, a separate sitting area or games room. The well appointed modern kitchen features a comprehensive range of wall and base units with complementary work surfaces that incorporate a single drainer sink unit and a mixer tap. Fitted appliances include an oven/grill and a five ring gas hob with an extractor hood and a dishwasher. The deep traditional larder cupboard provides useful additional storage space whilst a door leads through to the side lobby. Here a sliding double glazed door ensures an independent access to the spacious ground floor bedroom that has double glazed doors overlooking the front garden and is served by an adjacent shower room therefore suitable for a long term guest or a home office environment. A separate utility room houses the gas fired boiler with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier.

The landing is an open, light, bright and airy space with a window facing the front garden and loft access. The larger than average master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and has an extensive range of fitted wardrobes with overhead storage cupboards whilst there is ample space to accommodate an en-suite facility if desired. The three remaining dual aspect double bedrooms are all well proportioned and are served by the fully tiled bathroom that is larger than average boasting a suite incorporating an impressive Jacuzzi bath/shower cubicle with music speakers and body jets.

Outside

Situated on a mature plot of a quarter of an acre in size and set well back from the road, the property enjoys a good degree of natural privacy.

Floodlighting, a tap and outdoor power points are installed and the drive extends to the right of the house and leads to the detached single garage whilst a herringbone pattern brick paved area is found to the left of the house.

The level rear garden has a paved patio and is predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs creating a sylvan setting and a leafy outook and mature rhododendrons provide colourful spring blossom. A paved patio overlooks the rear garden and sensor activated floodlighting is installed together with power points and an outside tap. The wooded area towards the rear boundary is currently used as a chicken run.
