Property Description

Full description

BRIEF DESCRIPTION Situated in the heart of Upton, convenient to shops and bus routes, the property's position enjoys easy access out to major road networks and falls within catchment of very good primary and secondary schools. The property itself has been within our client's family for many years and has been extended and modified to create a further bedroom in the loft area and conservatory, the property still offers refurbishment opportunity for some cosmetic improvement and modernisation. The gardens are extensive and potentially offer development opportunity (subject to any necessary planning or building consents being obtained). To the ground floor, the accommodation offers an entrance hall with staircase off to the first floor accommodation and a spacious living room with exposed ceiling beams and extended slate tiled plinth, all to the front aspect. An open archway from the entrance hall leads to a dining room, which features a study area that houses the 'Worcester' gas central heating boiler and also an open archway into the kitchen area, which features a range of fully fitted units. Off here is the downstairs cloakroom/utility area and completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a conservatory which forms part of the extension to the home. On the first floor, there is access to three bedrooms and a bathroom featuring a four piece suite with corner spa bath and separate shower cubicle. From bedroom three is an enclosed staircase off to the converted loft area which provides the fourth bedroom which features a walk-in store cupboard off. The property offers a combination of UPVC and wooden glazed units and gas fired central heating. Externally, the property offers off-road parking via a private driveway which runs to the left hand side of the home, bypassing a lawned garden, leading to a turning area with a large detached garage/workshop. Beyond this is an opening through to a further lawned section of garden with a pond and summerhouse and behind is an open garden store area.
