Since being purchased as a first home by the current owners, the property has been thoughtfully remodeled and redecorated, with an emphasis placed on quality and timelessness. The bespoke kitchen – which combines traditional wooden units with modern, high-gloss tiling - was installed in 2018, and provides plenty of storage and preparation space.
The open-plan living room/diner has been fitted with polished hard-wood flooring, and has a lovely flow through to the kitchen and entry-hall. It feels light and bright, with wide windows and a neutral décor. The current owners have made fantastic use of the space, by creating a home-office area, which feels like a distinct room in its own right.
Upstairs, new carpet has been laid in each of the double bedrooms, and on the landing. The master bedroom benefits from a custom-made, fitted wardrobe; a deep built-in storage cupboard above the stairs; and attractive views out across St. Catherine Valley. The second bedroom is of an equally generous size, and looks out into the rear garden. A practical modern bathroom – installed in 2016 - completes the first floor.
The house has a high-arching attic, which is fully boarded, and which is currently being used for storage. However, it is possible that this could be transformed into a third bedroom (STPP).
A major feature of this property is the generous size of the plot, which is bordered by a combination of wooden fencing and hedging, in order to provide privacy and security. The front garden is entered via a discrete gate, and has been primarily laid to lawn, with a small decked area. There is side access through to the rear garden, which has been landscaped into three tiers. At the lowest level there is a spacious patio, which is ideal for enjoying an evening drink, or for entertaining friends and family. Above, there is a further lawn, and the large driveway.
As an added bonus, the property has a fully-wired chalet lodge which is currently being used for storage, and access to council land at the rear of the garden. This has shared right-of-way with only one neighboring property, and is maintained by the council.
