Guide Price £560,000 to £580,000 Freehold. LeGrys is delighted to bring to market this stylish, three double bedroom family home situated in one of the most sought after roads in Southborough Village - Doric Avenue. The attention to detail strikes you from the moment you enter the property and is evident in all rooms throughout this family home. What’s more, the vendors have tastefully retained many of the beautiful period features you would expect from a house of this age (1930s). The property is double glazed throughout. Outside you will find the attractive garden to the rear and the driveway to the front offers parking for one vehicle.

An open entrance porch leads to the lovely red front door with side-light windows and matching stained glass details. The spacious entrance hall has wood flooring with lots of useful fitted storage beneath the stairs.

To the front of the property is the south-facing sitting room which is a generous size and includes an open working fireplace (with stylish modern surround) and a large bay window. There is built-in storage and shelving on both sides of the chimney breast.

To the end of the hallway on the right is the second reception room which has a new log burner set into the fire place. There are built in storage cupboards with shelving above on both sides of the chimney breast and hard wood flooring that flows in from the hall. Bi-fold doors open out to the attractive garden.

A downstairs WC is conveniently located off the hall and has been tiled from floor to ceiling. 

The open-plan kitchen dining room has been finished to a high standard and boasts many modern features.  The windows overlook the attractive rear garden. The kitchen itself provides plenty of stylish fitted units to both floor and eye level as well as ample work surfaces in white quartz. In addition the kitchen benefits from a walk in utility area which includes plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer above. Integrated kitchen items include fridge and freezer, a dishwasher, fitted double fan oven, microwave, warming draw and five-ring gas hob (with extractor hood above). 

The dining area has hard wood flooring and plenty of space for a large dining table and free standing furniture.  The window looks over the front of the property.  There is some built in storage and housing for the new combi-boiler.
A pleasant ascent up the wide staircase, with stylish striped carpet, leads to the first floor landing.
The door opposite and slightly to the left, leads into the luxurious bathroom that is tiled floor to ceiling.  There are double sinks with storage in the vanity unit below. A large 2½ metre bath sits in the centre of the room.  There is a WC, two heated towel rails and a large separate shower with rain-head.  Two windows flood the room with light.

The Master bedroom is located at the front of the property with a lovely bay window filling the room with natural light. The room has a plush carpet and plenty of fitted wardrobes with hanging space, drawer storage and built in shoe racks.

Bedroom 2 sits to the rear of the property and overlooks the garden.  It is a large double with built in storage to the side of the chimney breast.

The third bedroom is located at the front of the property and is another spacious double with lots of room for free standing furniture.

Outside at the front of the property is a landscaped low maintenance garden and a driveway providing parking for one vehicle.  There are no parking restrictions in the road. There is a side path to left of the house. 
The rear garden is stunning, it is south-facing with planted boarders full of beautifully cared for plants.  There is a rubina tree and a lilac tree.  A patio area stretching the full width of the house sits next to the bi-fold doors and is ideal for outdoor entertaining. A decked area flows round to the side and the centre area is laid to lawn.  At the rear of the main garden is another decked area that maximizes the opportunity for the evening sun enjoyment.  Further back is a fenced off area for a vegetable patch and in the back left corner is a large shed.
