Agent's Comments

"This much cherished home has been in the same family for some 50 years and is offered for sale with no forward chain"

"The location has proved ever popular with generations of homeowners and the property provides a blank canvas for a new owner to put their stamp on it and create their own memories"


Introduction

Chetwynd Drive was originally developed in the 1920's with a pleasing variety of characterful detached properties and has proved an ever popular residential area due to the close proximity of The Common, university campus in Highfield and The General Hospital that is also found within the vicinity. A large entrance hall, two generous reception rooms and four well proportioned bedrooms are features of the accommodation that would benefit from updating and redecoration therefore offering potential buyers the opportunity to put their stamp on the interior. The leafy outlook to the rear is an attractive backdrop for this traditional family home that is offered for sale with no forward chain.


Description

The enclosed porch is found on the left and the original wooden door with decorative stained glass side panels opens to the large entrance hall that creates a favourable impression when entering the property. A staircase ascends to the first floor and an ornate leaded light porthole window, also found in both reception rooms, is adjacent to the door that permits access to the understairs cupboard. A cloakroom is positioned on the right and houses the plumbing for a washing machine. Of generous proportions, the lounge has a front aspect bay window that permits an abundance of natural light. The tiled fireplace has a coal effect gas fire and an ornate mantelpiece that is a pleasing focal point for the room. Positioned on the opposite side of the hall, the dining room is of a comfortable size with French doors that enjoy a leafy outlook over the garden. There is a wall mounted gas fire and a serving hatch communicates with the kitchen. Comprising a dated range of wall and base units that have complementary work surfaces incorporating a sink unit and a mixer tap, the kitchen has a dual aspect with an attractive outlook to the rear garden. If combined with the adjacent dining room an excellent open plan arrangement could be created to provide an impressive social live-in kitchen that is a sought after design. Fitted appliances include an oven/grill and a four ring gas hob with an extractor hood whilst space is provided for a fridge and dishwasher. A frosted double glazed door leads to the rear garden.
The spacious first floor landing has a hatch with a retractable ladder allowing access to the loft space and a leaded light side aspect window. The master bedroom is of the same design as the lounge below and is an enviable size enjoying a front aspect bay window with views along the street. The tiled fireplace has a gas fire and there is ample space to create an en-suite facility if desired. Bedroom two is double in size and has a pleasant outlook over the rear garden with a full height fitted double wardrobe. Bedroom three is a comfortable size room with a sink unit and a corner cupboard houses the boiler and hot water cylinder. Bedroom four is also double in size with a front aspect. The family bathroom comprises a three piece suite that requires updating.


Outside

The front garden has a small lawn with mature shrubs and plants. The brick paved driveway provides off road parking and a path and pedestrian gate are found on the left hand side. The integral garage is approached via an up and over door and can accommodate a small vehicle. The rear garden is an outstanding feature of the property and has a pleasant outlook with mature trees beyond the rear boundary creating an attractive leafy vista. A paved patio is approached from the dining room and is the perfect place for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days and warm evenings. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with shrubs and a useful garden shed together with an outdoor WC.


Location

Bassett is a highly sought after residential area due to the close proximity of The University campus that provides numerous facilities including The Jubilee sports complex. The Turner Sims concert hall and popular Nuffield Theatre are also found nearby that host a varied programme of cultural events. The Common, Sports Centre and City Golf Course are within a short distance and provide excellent recreational open space. Access to the M27/M3 motorway network is close by and The Parkway railway station provides a fast route to Waterloo. Local shops are found in Winchester Road whilst the city centre is only two miles distant boasting major high street facilities and the West Quay shopping mall and cinema restaurant complex.
