Property Description

Full description

Situated at the end of a no through tranquil lane with views over fields towards the mill and just a few strides to some fabulous riverside walks is this distinctive semi detached Edwardian villa offering excellently proportioned and comfortable accommodation. The property is also just a hop, skip and jump to the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries as well as a range of entertainment facilities. We believe that the property was built in 1901 and has been a very cherished home to our sellers for the last twenty one years. During their time of ownership the property has been well maintained and preserved with many original features still intact including sash windows, picture rails, floor tiling in the main reception hall and beautiful Marble fireplaces. The property also boasts good ceiling height and decorative coving. In addition, there is gas fired central heating via a combination boiler to radiators. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity of owning this special home.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of useful glazed entrance porch, entrance hall, sitting room with bay window and fireplace, dining room with fireplace, rear lobby, kitchen/breakfast room with walk in larder, utility and downstairs shower room. On the first floor there is the bathroom with original style bath and three double sized bedrooms. Outside there is verandah providing a shelter spot to enjoy the view, courtyard style garden, enclosed yard to the rear and gravelled parking for two cars which could easily be changed into garden if parking not required.
