3 bedroom detached house for saleEton Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon
Sold STC £475,000
A 2/3 bedroom family home with a large, well kept garden, a garage and off road parking, ideally situated in a quiet leafy road south of the river and offering real potential for improvement.
Stratford Upon Avon - Stratford upon Avon is internationally famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare and home to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and attracts almost four million visitors a year. Stratford is also a prosperous riverside market town with fine restaurants and inns, a good choice of public and private schools and excellent sporting and recreational amenities. The town is ideally placed for access to the M40, other major road and rail networks, and Birmingham International Airport.
Eton Road - This quiet, leafy road in the very popular 'south of the river' area is set well back from the main A422 Banbury Road which provides easy access to the town centre amenities and to major transport routes. Most of the houses are substantial detached family homes, constructed in the early to mid-1900's and benefiting from generous plots and mature, well maintained gardens. Most have been updated and many have been extended; number 30 offers an ideal opportunity to add value by upgrading and developing the accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents.
Approached over a neat gravelled foregarden which provides ample off road parking, the property is a 1960's detached, two storey home with dormer windows to the first floor and integral single garage. Having already been extended to the rear with the addition of a conservatory and a utility area, there is scope for further improvement or for significant redevelopment on this larger than average plot.
The entrance hallway has original parquet flooring which extends into the main living area and a traditional wooden staircase leading up to the first floor. To the front of the property is a good sized reception room which is currently used as a third bedroom, having built in storage.
The main living area is L-shaped and benefits from large windows across the full width to the rear, overlooking the gardens and bringing in plenty of natural light. There is space for a family dining table, and in the main part of the room the open fire in its simple modern fireplace provides a focal point for the large and sociable seating area, where there is another large window to the front. Glazed doors open to the conservatory which was added to the rear of the property some twelve years ago, and which opens directly onto the rear patio.
The neat kitchen is also accessed from the rear of the hallway, and is fitted with a range of floor and wall cabinets incorporating a Belfast sink, space for a large range cooker, and space for an under counter fridge or dishwasher. A further door leads through to a rear hallway where there is an internal door to the garage, a small cloakroom, a storage cupboard which houses the gas fired boiler, and a further storage cupboard.
The extension which was constructed ten years ago comprises a utility area with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a useful work/study area. There is also a shower room which is particularly useful if the third downstairs bedroom is retained for guests, or perhaps for an elderly relative.
To the first floor there are two good double bedrooms, each fitted with a range of bespoke Sharps wardrobes and having additional storage space under the eaves. The family bathroom, which would benefit from updating, currently comprises panelled bath, low level wc and pedestal wash hand basin.
Outside - The large and well-maintained garden is a particular feature of the property, both in its own right and because of the potential it offers for further development of the property without any signficant loss of outside amenity space. Beyond the wide slabbed patio the area is mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees and an attractive selection of shrubs and planted borders. There is a neat vegetable patch, two apple trees and a selection of soft fruit bushes; two garden sheds and a greenhouse are included in the sale. The garden is secure and very private, having high, mature hedges and fencing, and there is a side access to the front of the property for the disposal of bins etc..
Services - Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity are connected to the property. No tests have been undertaken to the service installations. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries and investigations before finalising their offer to purchase. Gas fired central heating is installed.
Tenure - We understand that the property is for sale Freehold.
