3 bedroom semi-detached house for saleLoxley Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon
Sold STC £385,000
A substantial semi-detached 3 bedroom family home on a corner plot, located in a desirable area and offering tremendous scope 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.
Loxley 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 town centre amenities and to major transport routes. Loxley Road also provides an alternative route to Tiddington and Alveston, and to the rural outskirts of Stratford for walking and cycling. Many of the properties are large, early to mid-1900's homes with good sized gardens, and these are very sought after as they offer the prospect of a pleasant lifestyle and a sound investment, with many being significantly enlarged and improved in recent years. Number 130 offers great potential in this respect, being situated on a large corner plot and having plenty of scope for renovation and extension subject to the necessary planning consents.
The property benefits from a large, fenced foregarden which has a generous area of lawn and a driveway with parking for two or three cars. The front entrance is via an attractive arched brick porch, and the hallway retains the original panelled staircase and has a bright, spacious feel. There is storage beneath the stairs, and access to the two reception rooms which are of similar size. The front room, currently used as a formal dining room, has a fine bay window; the mantelpiece currently houses an electric fire.
The rear sitting room has a gas fire fitted in a modern fireplace, with alcoves either side. Windows and a glazed door open to the conservatory/utility room which has been built on to the rear of the property and incorporates what would have been the outside toilet and coal store.
The kitchen, currently a wide galley design, overlooks the rear garden and the conservatory, and could be extended significantly subject to planning requirements. The fitted units incorporate a New World double oven and gas four-plate hob, single drainer stainless steel sink, and space and plumbing for a washing machine or dishwasher.
A glazed door leads through to a small rear hallway which gives internal access to the single garage; there is another, half glazed door opening to the rear patio and the garden beyond.
To the first floor there are three bedrooms - two good sized doubles, both having large windows and pleasant, open views, and a smaller single bedroom currently used as a study. The original layout of the house has been retained, with a separate wc and bathroom fitted with modern sanitaryware comprising panelled bath with Triton shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, and low level wc.
A hatchway above the landing has been fitted with a sliding ladder to access the spacious attic which is boarded and which could offer excellent potential to create second floor accommodation.
Outside - To the rear of the house is a slabbed patio with a shed and space for the storage of bins etc., and a slabbed path which leads across the garden to a greenhouse at the rear boundary. There are wide areas of lawn on either side of this, with mature trees and shrubs; there is also a stone edged pond and water feature.
The garden can also be accessed from the conservatory/utility area, where there is a long work surface and useful additional storage. This earlier extension offers potential for development subject to the necessary consents, as does the existing single garage.
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.
