SUMMARY This well positioned, two bedroom, semi-detached Victorian cottage has been significantly enhanced by the current owners to a high standard with a perfect balance of contemporary and period features throughout. In recent years the property has benefited from the installation of new doors and double glazed windows throughout, addition of a conservatory, replacement of flat roof, renovation of bathroom and bedrooms and a recent staircase replacement. The property also enjoys a private rear garden with a recently constructed garden building partitioned into both workshop and office space.
The living room is light and airy with a log-burning stove and newly installed oak flooring. Traditional sash windows and door compete the period aesthetic.
The dining room is finished with a slate floor, built in storage, under stairs storage and recently replaced stairs to the first floor (currently being finished).
Adjoining the dining room is a stylish kitchen finished with oak worktops, slate tiled floor, integrated appliances (oven, induction hob, extractor fan) and space for a dishwasher. A sky-light provides plenty of natural light.
The ground floor bathroom contains a WC, pedestal washbasin and paneled bath with shower over, part tiled walls and a powerful extractor fan.
In addition the house has had a conservatory added which serves as both a utility and garden room. On the utility side there is a contemporary basin and copper tap, full width oak worktop with services below for a washing machine and drier. The space also benefits from full width bifold doors to the garden.
Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms, bedroom 1 is particularly spacious and includes two built-in double wardrobes, oak flooring and built-in access to a fully boarded loft.
Bedroom 2 also includes built-in shelving, access to the airing cupboard and a recently fitted carpet. The landing has an airing cupboard housing a combination boiler installed by the current owners and serviced annually.
Outside, the property benefits from a side gate and passageway leading to the rear garden, which is predominantly paved and graveled for ease of maintenance with raised flower-beds. There is a newly erected garden building partitioned into both a workshop and garden office. The garden has a high degree of privacy and is bordered with various shrubs, plants and trees and is enclosed by an attractive brick wall and fencing.
