Set in a quiet cul-de-sac opposite an amenity green and enjoying scenic views of the Sugarloaf Mountain to the rear, this well-presented modern family home has been enhanced to a high standard with a series of improvements by the current owners.
These include upgrades to both upstairs bathrooms, brand new laminate timber floors throughout the ground floor, new carpets on the stairs and landing, and the installation of a new central heating boiler less than two years ago. The property has also just been repainted from top to toe in relaxing pale tones to enhance natural light.
And for home-hunters looking to expand, the good news is that there is excellent potential to create further living space by converting the attic. While this would be subject to planning regulation, ample precedent has been set in neighbouring houses where such conversions have already been carried out.
Thanks to the presence of a good-sized back garden, there's also to potential to extend the property to the rear and/or replace an existing utility/storage room (again, subject to planning).
In brief, existing accommodation comprises a good-sized entrance hall with guest bathroom off, a large living room overlooking the front garden, that utility room to the rear and at the heart of the home, an open-plan kitchen spanning the full width of the house and looking out on to the back garden.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a family bathroom and a landing with access via pull-down steps to that conversion-friendly attic, the majoirty of which is floored to accommodate storage.
Outside, there are low maintenance gardens to the front and rear, with the back garden mainly set out as a cobble lock patio to make the most of the property's sunny, west-facing rear aspect. To the front, a hard surface drive provides off street parking for two cars. Linking the two gardens is a passage to the side of the house, which has been cleverly enclosed with a plexiglass roof to create extensive storage space.
