Large uPVC double glazed sash windows looking out to the front of the property and continuation of the dado rails and picture rail.

Breakfast Room To the rear elevation the third reception room is what we would call the "Breakfast room". Back in the Victorian times, they would enjoy their breakfast in this room as it receives the early morning sun. This really is a lovely cosy room with electric stove, red brick fireplace with tall wooden mantle and slate hearth. Shelved alcoves provide storage to each side of the fire. Carpeted flooring, picture rail, skirting boards and radiator. A uPVC bay style window looks out to the rear patio.

The conservatory runs alongside two sides of the room. and along the other side you have the beautiful panelling and exposed coins. The roof lantern is a fantastic addition to this room and the low level walls with slate sills provide the perfect spot for an additional seating. Sliding uPVC double glazed door leading out to the well maintained rear garden.

Multi-Level Landing The carpeted stairs with oak balustrade lead up to the impressive multilevel landing. Two steps up lead to the family bathroom and large airing cupboard and a further set of steps up give access to the secondary landing with doors to all bedrooms. The landing boasts a gorgeous double glazed stain glass window and a wooden door provides access to a large airing cupboard with wooden slatted shelves for storage, radiator and uPVC double glazed window looking out to the rear.

Bedroom Two A spacious and light double bedroom to the front elevation. Carpeted flooring, double glazed sash windows looking out to the front of the property, skirting boards, carpet flooring and picture rail.

Bedroom Three To the side elevation. Again, a substantial double bedroom with carpeted flooring, radiator and uPVC double glazed window looking out to the garden.

Bedroom Four A fantastic sized room with ample space for a king size bedroom. Carpeted flooring, uPVC double glazed window looking out to the rear of the property and access hatch to the un-boarded loft. The loft offers a huge amount of storage space and with the relevant planning permission we believe this would provide a great opportunity to extend up.

Outside The rear garden can be entered from the front of the property via the driveway and wooden gate. It can also be accessed via the sliding uPVC double glazed doors from the conservatory. A gate to the rear of the property provides access via the pavement and road. The rear garden is split into lots of lovely sections. The majority is to the side of the property and a large area is laid to lawn for low maintenance with raised brick beds full of beautiful plants and shrubs. This area is then bordered by a beautiful large slate pathway which leads along the side and then up to a very large patio area and outside bar/large covered seating area.. The bar is covered and can seat a large amount of people, This really is a fantastic space to entertain and enjoy the long summer evenings. The bar has electricity and lights. The garden has high fences and Cornish walls for maximum privacy.

. The garden also boasts some beautiful granite quoin benches dotted around the permitter of the garden sit and enjoy the afternoon sun. These were created by the owners when they made the driveway, repurposing the quoins from the original front wall. To the boundary of the property there is a high granite Cornish and redbrick wall for maximum privacy. The garden path leads you around to the side of the property and a wooden gate provides access to a further patio area with planted Cornish granite walls, a separate patio area, storage shed with electric and outside WC. This patio area is directly outside the breakfast room which gets the morning sun so in our opinion it would be the perfect space for a table and chairs.   A wooden door provides access to the outside WC which has a low level toilet and small hand basin, half height tiling and tile effect lino flooring. Outside water tap.

. This property really must be seen to be appreciated. It is a hugely versatile space and due to the amount of rooms upstairs and downstairs we really feel this would appeal to multi-generational living. With the downstairs level having three reception rooms you could easily look to change one of these rooms to a bedroom whilst also creating a separate living room for them and the utility room can easily be made into a separate kitchen area. The breakfast room enjoys the morning sun, and we feel with the relevant planning consents the addition of some double doors leading out to the patio would be just wonderful. Again with the relevant planning consents you could look to convert the huge attic space.

. This has been a much loved family home for 25 years and has undergone a huge amount of work which we will be more than happy to tell you about at the viewings. They have kept up with the maintanance of this property and it really is in fantastic condition. We do not expect this to stay on the market for long.
