Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This well-designed family home ticks lots of boxes for family living: Detached? Tick; Ensuite master bedroom? Tick; Downstairs cloakroom? Tick; Garage, separate dining room, utility room, decent garden...all ticks. It's in a great location on the popular Badgers development and perfect for young families. Bourton Park is just a 5 minute walk away and across the park is the highly regarded Bourton Meadow Academy. The grammar and secondary schools and town centre are also within easy walking distance. Furthermore, this little corner of Lime Avenue is a friendly and well established community with most of the neighbours having lived in the cul de sac 10 years or longer.

The downstairs accommodation briefly comprises a well proportioned living room, separate dining room that opens into the garden and good sized kitchen. There's a separate utility room that has previously doubled as a study, plus that necessity of modern family living: a separate downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, two of which are doubles, with an ensuite to the master. Bedroom 3 is a practical single and there is also a family bathroom.

Outside the property has a driveway with parking for 1-2 cars, an attractive front garden and a larger than average, private, southwesterly facing rear garden that is not overlooked by properties behind.

The house has recently been fitted with quality uPVC soffits, fascias and new guttering, plus a new patio door in the dining room. The wood laminate flooring on the ground floor is also new.

The house makes for great family living as is, but it's reassuring to know there's potential for further improvement as your needs change. The single storey integral garage would be an easy conversion to a playroom or downstairs ensuite bedroom if desired, and there is potential to extend above and add a further bedroom (subject to relevant permissions).
