Property Description

Full description

A most interesting detached chalet style property hiding a versatile and roomy interior occupying a slightly elevated position with views of Duncliffe Hill and woods to the rear with local shops and the primary school just a short walk away. The town centre is within easy reach as is the train station and secondary and sixth form school. The property is situated in a quiet cul de sac built in the mid 1980's by a well known local builder and has been a home to the selling family since new. It has been extremely well maintained and benefits from double glazing with some windows boasting an attractive leaded light inlay and gas fired central heating from a combination boiler to radiators. The property is also presented to the market with no onward chain. Internally, this home offers well proportioned rooms with flexible usage and an easy flowing layout which would tick a great many boxes from those looking for a family home to those wishing to downsize without too much of a compromise.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of useful entrance porch, welcoming entrance hall, combined sitting and dining room with patio doors to the sun terrace and a fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room with some built in appliances, utility room, cloakroom and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This room also lends itself as a formal dining room. On the first floor there is a galleried landing with storage cupboard, the family bathroom and three double sized bedrooms. Outside there is driveway parking, garage and front garden. The magical rear and side gardens are a particular feature of this home and have been created to offer different areas of interest providing a private and sunny outdoor space.
