A spacious driveway and delightful front garden lead up towards the double glazed patio doors giving access into the entrance porch.

The entrance hall gives access to principal rooms and stairs rising to the first floor. The lounge is very spacious with a box style bay window ensuring the room is light and airy, it also features a gas fireplace with a delightful wooden mantle and tiled hearth. Additional features to this room are decorative coloured stained glass inserts to the top of the bay windows and picture rails. The dining room again is of a particularly good size with a large double glazed box bay window overlooking the rear gardens.

An archway brings you into the quality fitted modern kitchen. T he kitchen with contrasting work surfaces and units is an 'L' shaped room with plenty of work surface space and is fitted with an American fridge freezer and a dishwasher. There is also space and provisions for a washing machine. The sink unit sits eloquently below a double glazed window looking out to the rear elevation and a double glazed PVCu door gives direct access to a patio leading down to the garden beyond.

The third bedroom again is a good sized double in the L shape with a window overlooking the front. Finally the fourth bedroom is a very large single as it is particularly long and possible the brightest bedroom as it has windows on two aspects. The family bathroom is bright with modern tiling and has the benefit of not only a bath but also a separate shower cubicle. The loft room as mentioned is accessed from the landing with a pull down ladder, it has been laid to carpet, has a light and a double glazed vellum window and in the past has been used as a Hobby room.
