Full description

I am not amused! For in the days of our Queen Victoria bedrooms four and five in this gorgeous home would have been inhabited by most useful people, servants!!!!! And now, when with today's busy lives, NO! Likely to be now enjoyed by cheeky little tikes! Well, that's progress for you! However with the space, charm and character which oozes from this lovely property, even the absence of a domestic will not sway you from the decision that this has to be the one. With accommodation laid out over three floors, the living room, dining room, and dining kitchen as well as laundry and guest cloaks are all on the ground floor, with three double bedrooms and sumptuous family bathroom on the first floor and the two further bedrooms located on the second floor. Outside the property has well tended gardens which wrap around from the rear to the side and a paved driveway provides plenty of off road parking. Watlands Avenue is located in a popular tree lined avenue of similar period properties and is conveniently placed within walking distance to an abundance of amenities and only a few minutes drive to our excellent commuter link roads and railway.
