       LIVING ROOM: From opening the entrance door you are greeted by an impressive large living room that could easily incorporate a dining area. The glazed entrance, large window to the front and a high level side window allows plenty of natural light to pour into the room. A Hunter wood burner with newly fitted flue lining sits comfortably on a solid stone hearth naturally making it a focal point. A recess to the left has a fitted cupboard that houses a new consumer unit and meter. A useful, deep under stairs utility cupboard takes care of storage needs as well as a smaller additional fitted cupboard with power socket. 
KITCHEN: At the rear of the ground floor is the newly fitted kitchen diner, extended by the owners to create a spacious, bright and airy haven. French double doors offer access to the patio and garden while also giving a pretty outlook from within letting lots of light into the room. The sage green shaker style wall and base units offer plenty of cupboard and drawer space designed with functionality in mind. The white tiled splash back compliments the darker work tops and laminate floor. The kitchen benefits from having a new stainless steel integrated fan oven with grill, a new four-ring electric ceramic hob with an integrated extractor hood, a stainless steel single drainer sink with mixer tap, and a new Worcester Bosch combination boiler concealed in a wall unit. There is space for a fridge/freezer and further space with plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.
A flight stairs from the end of the living room leads to the first floor, where bedrooms two, three and the family bathroom can be found. The upstairs landing has a window, an alcove space for cupboard storage and a staircase to the second floor.

BEDROOM TWO: Sitting to the front of the first floor is the second bedroom that is a generous sized double room with a large window with a low level radiator, an original feature non-working fireplace and room on each side for either chests of draws or floor to ceiling cupboards.

BEDROOM THREE makes an ideal single bedroom. With a window and open views beyond the garden there is always ample amounts of natural light. This room can comfortably fit a single bed and side table.

BATHROOM: Completing the first floor is the newly fitted family bathroom. The bathroom has a bath with shower and full height glass screen, stylish mono block tap mixers, corner WC, vanity unit with wash basin and storage cupboard beneath, mirror cabinet, heated towel rail and a frosted opening window for natural light. The bathroom is completed with marble effect wall tiles and waterproof laminate floor.

MASTER BEDROOM: Stairs from the landing lead you to the second floor, where you will find the largest double bedroom. From the dormer window you can enjoy views to the garden and beyond. There is some eaves storage space and plenty of room for additional free-standing furniture.

The property benefits from having new: 
floors, ceilings, joists, roof tiles and gutters, double glazed windows, carpets, laminate floors, stairs, doors, electrics, lights, soil pipes, all new plumbing including combi-boiler, heating, radiators, is newly decorated and well insulated. 

REAR GARDEN: A beautifully presented laid to lawn garden with brick-edged flowerbeds and evergreen shrubs that offer colour all year round by flowering in different seasons. There is a large light grey riven sandstone patio area that catches the sun most of the day and is ideal for entertaining friends and family. The garden is secured by a traditional wood panel fence and wrought iron double gates to the side. Stepping stones lead over the lawn to the outhouse studio.

OUTBUILDING STUDIO: Once inside you immediately feel a sense of privacy, ideal for those looking for a home office, a playroom, a workshop for hobbies or simply secure storage space. The studio has its own electrics (with separate fuse box), a working fireplace, is double glazed, damp proofed/insulated, has plastered walls and ceiling and has a thick lino floor with waterproof underlay. 
Attached to the studio is a separate side store, ideal for garden tools, logs for the wood burner, bikes or the dustbins. Both parts of the outbuildings are secure and there is an outside power point.

From the road a drop curb leads to a gravel driveway adjacent to the house giving access to the rear garden to a further gravel area that may be suitable for parking a motorbike or a small trailer.

In short, this is a one-off property that has to be seen to be appreciated - it speaks for itself once inside.
