UNDER OFFER !!! 2 for the price of 1 - Detached Family Home plus own entrance self contained apartment ! REA Boyd's are delighted to present no. 42 The Sycamores to the market. This fine, detached residence sits on the perfect, large corner site, not overlooked, and in an enviable location within a popular residential estate on the Freshford Road. The house is only a couple of minutes' walk from several schools and the City's High Street, with all it's amenities. The estate has it's own convenience store and is located right beside St. Luke's Hospital, only a couple of metres away from the bus stop which serves the City Bus. At the back of the estate is the lovely Linear Walk along the River Nore. 42 The Sycamores is not your standard detached house - it actually offers two properties in one. Detached house refurbished in 2017,  the property has also had the garage converted to provide a self contained one bedroom apartment with separate entrance to the side of the main residence. Altogether, the property has 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 kitchens with 176 sq.m (1,900 sq.ft) of living space. To the front, the home provides off-street parking for two vehicles, while also to the side of the house, there is a large, private enclosed area, large enough for multiple vehicles if needed. Having recently had all the outer walls fully insulated with insulation slabs, gas central heating plus a large solid fuel stove in the living room, this property is both cosy and spacious. The apartment is adjoined to the main home, so it is free from current County Council restrictions that govern short term lets. It can be used as a 1 bed, 1 bath or a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. The apartment has provided a lucrative income for the current owners for the past few years through Airbnb and short/long term lets for trainee nurses and doctors. This apartment also has the potential to provide a separate home for a family member or friend. On entering the main house, there is a room to the left that could be used as an additional bedroom, office or playroom. Adjacent to this is the bright and generously sized living room which hosts a solid fuel stove and window looking out onto the front garden with mature trees. Further down the hallway, you walk through a glass panel door to a modern, light-filled kitchen, complete with both a dining and living area. It has two large windows and French doors that open out onto the private back garden, which is not overlooked. Upstairs, there is a landing area which leads to a walk in hot press, family bathroom with bath and overhead shower and four large bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a sliding wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The Sycamores has a great reputation of having a friendly community that provide excellent maintenance of the estate throughout the year and a summer BBQ for residents. There are also several green areas throughout the estate for children to play. VIEWING OF THIS UNUSUAL PROPERTY IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SO CALL TO MAKE YOUR VIEWING APPOINTMENT TODAY !
