This room has built-in storage to the alcove alongside the chimney breast which also houses a smaller solid fuel stove within*. There is a useful desk/study area within the window reveal at the rear of the room.
The kitchen is laid out in a double sided galley-style arrangement with additional cupboards mounted to the side wall. There is an integrated single drainer sink unit, a built-in oven and hob with cooker hood and also plumbing for a washing machine.
There is open access into a rear entrance lobby that has a door leading into the attached rear porch and a second door leading into the ground floor bathroom which is generously sized and fitted with a four piece suite including a panelled bath, a separate shower cubicle, a wash hand basin and WC. There is a tiled finish to the wall and opaque glazing to the window.
The first floor landing has been opened up into what would have been a former bedroom space alongside, creating a fabulous open space with a window to the rear elevation, useful built-in cupboard storage and an open tread staircase which leads up into the loft room.
The larger of the two bedrooms in this property lies to the front of the house providing plenty of space for the positioning of furniture and also a lovely view towards neighbouring gardens. The second bedroom is a single room which has a built-in cupboard housing the boiler and also offering a great view over neighbouring gardens to the rear towards the adjacent countryside.
The loft area has a large floor hatch which is counterweighted which makes it easy to lift/lower. The space is heated and has power, light and a large skylight.
Outside, the property has a small enclosed yard to the rear and what will prove to be a real gem for garden lovers is the established fruit garden that lies to the front of the house which has been landscaped with raised beds and borders and planted with fruit bushes and trees.
There are also storage sheds, areas of lawn and a winding footpath which takes you down to the foot of the garden where there is a greenhouse* and also a bench made from a railway sleeper that provides a lovely private place to relax and enjoy the view onto the adjacent fields.
