Built in 1912, this detached Edwardian style home was extended at the rear in 1925, and again to the left hand side in the 1980's. It now offers excellent family sized accommodation and is located on the northern edge of the town. It benefits from a good sized plot extending to about a third of an acre. The current owners purchased in 2001 and soon after rebuilt the utility room. The kitchen, en suite bathroom and shower have been refitted to a good standard in more recent years. Most of the ground floor has wood flooring, with wood-effect tiles in the kitchen, and the black and white tiled hall is a particular period feature.
Porch with front door leading into the tiled hall, with the staircase off and a cupboard under. On the right is the dual aspect sitting room with a stone fireplace surround fitted with a log burning stove. On the left is a study, with a connecting door to the dining room, which can also be accessed from the hall. This has sliding doors onto a gravelled patio. Behind the sitting room the family room, once the kitchen, has an original built-in dresser and a door leading through to the good sized kitchen/breakfast room. This has Wren cabinets with granite worksurfaces including a breakfast bar. There is a large integrated fridge and separate freezer, a Rangemaster cooker with extractor over, plus a dishwasher. Double doors lead out to the garden, while a side door gives access to the utility room, with a cloakroom at the rear. From the landing there is access to the loft which has a light, and a walk-in airing cupboard with shelving. The main bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has a walk through dressing area leading to an en suite bathroom with shower over the bath and built-in cupboards. The guest bedroom is dual aspect and, like the sitting room below, has a rectangular bay. There are three further bedrooms, one of which is triple aspect, and a well appointed shower room.
The gated driveway leads to a large gravelled parking area in front of the house. To the left is an area of lawn, with a garage to the right, which has power and light. A gate gives access to a paved area to the side of the house, adjacent to the utility room, where there is a log store. There is a gravelled entertaining area adjoining the dining room with ample space for seating. Close by is a wooden shed. The garden is enclosed by a mix of fencing and hedge and has a large lawned area with shrubs and trees. In the middle is a decked area with a pergola and pond.
The property is freehold. All mains services are connected and there is a Tesla car charging point. The gas boiler in the kitchen supplies central heating and hot water. Council tax Band F - £3,307.27 payable for 2023/24. EPC rating band D - 61.
