FULL DESCRIPTION This handsome, inter-war semi-detached house offers particularly well-proportioned living space that benefits from a generous rear extension creating a fourth bedroom and superb, L-shaped kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling. Further improvements include a new roof in 2004, replacement timber-framed windows, and gas-fired boiler. Featuring the original front door, bell, and stained glass windows, the entrance hall is spacious and has stairs to the first floor and access to the cloakroom. The living room has an attractive fireplace and bay window to the front, while the family room opens into the superb kitchen/dining room. Again, it enjoys a part-vaulted ceiling with roof lights and two sets of double doors opening on the rear garden. The kitchen area has a range of light-coloured units with wood-effect work tops, tiled splashbacks, inset gas hob with extractor hood over, built-in oven and grill, space for an under-counter fridge and freezer, and plumbing and space for washing machine and dishwasher.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, all of which are a good-size. The front bedroom enjoys a double height bay and a cast iron fireplace, while Bedroom 1 has fitted wardrobes to one wall and views over the rear garden. There is also a mainly tiled family bathroom, which has a panelled bath with screen to the side and shower over, wash basin and Velux roof light, and a separate WC. The landing provides access to the loft space via a retractable ladder.

At the front is a mature garden with block-paved driveway, screen hedging, well-planted shrub borders and boundary fencing. There is a gated side passage with built-in store cupboard leading to the rear garden. With a sunny, southwesterly aspect, the established rear garden is enclosed by screen hedging and fencing and is well-planted with a variety of plants and shrubs that help provide a high degree of privacy.

"“Your initial valuations were spot on, just right to attract maximum interest and a modest amount of bidding. The estimated values were also much more accurate than some other estate agents we consulted. Your office was brilliant in providing continuous updates on viewing lists and offers; it also made a difference that you arranged individual rather than mass block viewings. So thank you Jon for two excellent results, great work by all your office staff and you in particular.” "
