An attractive period detached house within level walking distance of the town centre and station offering spacious and well presented character accommodation and standing on a mature plot approaching 0.25 acre.

The Property The Gables is a detached family home originally dating from the 1930 s with later additions now providing well proportioned accommodation for the growing family. It is double glazed and centrally heated, offers four double bedrooms and a fifth single bedroom that could easily be used as a study with two bathrooms on the first floor. The large entrance hall, approached from the front porch, could also double up as a study, with a wood floor, doors off to the main reception rooms and stairs to the first floor. Here a couple of steps lead down to the main drawing room, a bright a sizeable room running front to back and having casement doors opening to the patio and rear gardens. Also off the hall is the smaller, cosy sitting room with its open fireplace and windows overlooking the front drive. Next to this is the utility room with space for the white goods and also a door to the cloakroom with wc and hand basin. At the rear of the house and overlooking the lovely rear gardens, is the extended and split level kitchen/dining room, with its modern range of light wood units and extensive working surfaces, glazed cabinet and colourful splash backs. There is space for an American style fridge/freezer, the built in oven and grill has a gas hob above with a stainless steel hood over and there is plumbing for a dishwasher. Raised up at one end is the dining area, which will accommodate a good size table and chairs and also gives lovely views over the rear gardens. Upstairs are five independently approached bedrooms off the landing, with the master bedroom having a dual aspect to the rear offering pretty views with an open aspect. There is an ensuite jack and jill bathroom with a corner bath and shower which also has a door opening to the landing, three more double bedrooms to both the front and rear and a recently renewed family bathroom housing a contemporary white suite with tiled floor and mosaic tiled splash backs. A large store cupboard opens off the landing too and offers potential for a second ensuite bath or shower room if so desired.

The Gardens The house is approached over a wide, gravelled carriage drive with a central lawn and hedge leading to the single garage to one side and provides ample parking for several vehicles. There a mature shrubs and plants to both boundaries. The rear gardens are most definitely a feature of the property, with level lawned gardens interspersed with mature trees and shrubs and pathways in between. There is a patio outside the drawing room with space for a table and chairs that faces over the rest of the lawn and has space for a trampoline.
