Reached via a short residential road which leads off Charlcombe Way, the property occupies an elevated position, with an allocated garage. It is accessed via a flight of stone steps, and a wooden gate. The front and rear gardens have been landscaped with an eclectic mixture of natural materials, ranging from bark and slate through to gravel and oriental trees. A hidden under croft provides the perfect space for bike and garden furniture storage, and the whole plot is bordered by tall shrubs and acers, which create a strong sense of privacy.
A wooden walkway leads through the front garden to a flight of steps, which connect to a wide veranda. This benefits from built-in benches, and overhead beams, vines and branches which intertwine to create a unique and attractive treehouse style canopy with wide reaching views – perfect for entertaining friends and family.
A bright entry-hall leads into the main reception rooms, which include a spacious living room with bay window and gas fire; a well-maintained kitchen with ample storage, granite worktops and a large central island; and a useful additional room which has previously been used as both a dining and office space. Also on the ground floor is the first double bedroom, and the family shower room. Upstairs, the two further double bedrooms both offer built-in storage space, wide windows, and modern spotlights, and share a handy WC.
The property has a warm and neutral décor throughout, with varnished wooden floorboards, subdued pastel walls, and plush cream carpet. It will be easy for the next owner to place their stamp on their new home, and to decorate to their needs and tastes.
