Approach & Ground Floor
Although the canal side views steal the show for this property, upon arriving viewers will be delighted with the front presentation of this home, with block paved driveway leading toward the front door. The more eagle-eyed observer will note the iron gates to the left of the property which give access to the property next door via a right of way. Once inside the front door, viewers get an early taste of the superb décor in the home with a welcoming hallway that has tiled flooring running straight through into the kitchen and to the left where there is a lengthy ground floor wc.
The door immediately to the right of the entrance is for a sizeable lounge. This lounge is the original main reception room from the property before it was extended, however as the extension includes a much larger sitting room, this lounge has become a secondary sitting room. Viewers could argue that it could make a great dining room until they step into a, quite frankly, massive kitchen which has a dining area of its own that in no way encroaches the space available for cookery.
The kitchen has an abundance of fitted wall and base units with space for a range oven. There is also access to a further extension in the form of a utility room and there is a pantry which is formed out of the understairs cupboard. The final door from the kitchen leads through to the fantastic rear sitting room. This vast space houses a large sofa suite and includes a delightful feature fireplace. There are lovely French doors leading out to the sheltered patio area.
Moving upstairs, this property keeps getting better and better, with a long corridor-style landing that has doors leading off to FIVE bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is located over the rear sitting room and therefore is a superb sized room for an abundance of furniture and that desirable king size bed! There is access from the front of the bedroom to a very welcome en suite shower room which will delight viewers further. To cap it off, the master bedroom is one of three bedrooms (along with four and five) to have rear views over the canal and far-reaching Staffordshire countryside.
Bedrooms two and three are also generous double bedrooms, whereas bedrooms four and five are singles. Bedroom four (not pictured) is a long and ample sized single bedroom with Bedroom five currently being utilised as a home office. The family bathroom is a delightful suite that includes a shower fitting over the bath with centrals and a heated towel rail.
To the rear garden where there is a lovely wide and mainly sheltered slabbed patio which continues down to the lawn before the main feature of this home - the canal side. The bank of the canal has a step leading down to a well-positioned bench where the owners can spend their evenings admiring the barges and recreational walkers along the pathway opposite. The area of canal that is behind this home is wider and is used as a turning circle for barges. Again, on the opposite side of the canal is open countryside enabling beautiful countryside views and making the rear garden the perfect place to relax after a tiresome day/week!!
