THE PROPERTY

Located in the heart of the cathedral city of Lichfield, this fabulous three bedroom family home will impress all viewers. Approaching from the front, the property has a delightful front garden that is relatively low maintenance being mainly gravel with beautiful plants around the borders. Viewers will then walk up the garden path and enter the property via the main front door to the side of the porch.

Immediately upon entering the porch, viewers will appreciate that they have entered a well presented home as the décor has been recently refreshed and there is a very modern feel. Inside the porch is a handy storage cupboard and a slim window that allows natural light in. From here viewers then have the option of taking the staircase to the front or a door on either side for the lounge and kitchen with dining.

To the left is the kitchen, which has been recently refitted with a marvellous suite that incorporates integrated appliances such an induction hob, chest height electric oven, dishwasher and washing machine. There of plenty of units cleverly designed to maximise storage space and the accompanying work surface is a durable marble style surface. Originally to the back right of the room there was a rear hallway for the back door however this has been opened through – definitely the right decision – to allow more unit space whilst maintaining an under-stairs storage space. The front of the kitchen is a large open space suitable for a dining table as shown in the pictures.

The lounge, like the kitchen, stretches the full length of the ground floor at almost eighteen feet (full measurements below). Viewers will love the size of this room as there is easily enough space for a sofa suite, entertainment unit and other lounge furniture. There are also some glorious and wide French doors out to the rear garden. What is also noticeable is that, throughout the majority of the house, the high quality double glazed windows in this property have been tinted which is especially welcome to the front of the property where passing pedestrians cannot see into the house, maintaining privacy.

Moving upstairs, from the landing there are six doors leading off to all three bedrooms, the family bathroom, a separate wc and the airing cupboard which includes the popular Vaillant boiler. To the right is Bedroom One, the biggest of the three which has a window to the front, a built in slide mirror door wardrobe and plenty of room for a king-size bed. Next to Bedroom One is Bedroom Three, the smallest of the three but still a generous sized single bedroom, so much so that there is currently a double bed in there!! Moving to the left of the stairwell is Bedroom Two which is only slightly smaller than Bedroom One and therefore is a terrific double that, again, makes good use of the space above the stairwell with a matching slide mirror door wardrobe.

Finally for the interior are the matching family bathroom and wc suites. These are both very stylish and modern white suites with there being a wash basin in both rooms and the marvellous addition of a shower above the bath. There was originally two windows on the wall above the bath but the owner has cleverly removed one of the windows (you would never know!) next to the shower with there still being enough natural light coming in, as the photo suggests.

Finishing outside, the rear garden is very low maintenance and is as fabulously presented as the interior. With smart grey paving slabs creating a lovely patio, the garden rises up via two steps to the higher level where there is a block paved pathway that separates two gravel patches on its way to the secure rear gate. The garden has delightful shrubs to the borders and is completed by a wooden shed and wooden fence to the boundaries that have both been smartly painted dark green.

PARKING

The property comes without a dedicated off road parking space although there are many local car parks for which buyers can purchase a permit. The current owners rent a garage in the block of garages just behind this terrace of properties (accessible from the secure gate) however it is not guaranteed that the new owner will be able to continue this agreement and therefore enquiries would need to be made.
