Good schools catering for all age groups are well represented within the local area.
Brought to the market in what is considered to be very good order throughout having been well maintained and improved in recent years by the current owners, this beautifully presented, double fronted, family home retains a wealth of character and charm throughout, as evident by many stripped and polished wooden floors, cast-iron fireplaces, ornate ceiling cornices, mouldings and period style radiators. Situated at the rear of the property overlooking the south facing garden through bi-folding doors is a well-equipped kitchen/dining room with a range of Corian work surfaces, gas Aga and partial pitched glass roof. On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a spacious, modern, family bathroom and access to an extensive roof space providing the opportunity to create additional accommodation and en-suite facilities if required subject to any necessary consents that will be required.
Black and white mosaic tiled path leads to the covered entrance with an attractive stain glass leaded light front door that opens into an entrance vestibule with a further stripped, glazed door leading through to the spacious entrance hall, wooden floor, period style radiator and stairs with central runner rising to the first floor.
From the entrance hall stairs descend to an area of cellar storage, with a radiator, meters and secure access to the front of the property.
A spacious, dual aspect through sitting room with a sash bay window to the front has plantation shutters, open cast-iron fireplace with attractive tiled floral cheeks set within a marble surround. Situated at the opposite end of the room are a pair of glazed oak doors which provide access through to the extended kitchen/dining room.
Kitchen/dining room has been refitted by the current owners and is now a bright and spacious room with bi-folding doors that overlook and lead out to the south facing garden in addition to the partial pitched glass roof. Corian work surfaces with a moulded sink provide storage beneath whilst there is also a number of freestanding units, feature gas Aga with attractive tiling behind, space for washing machine and dishwasher, standing space for American style fridge/freezer, full-length double-glazed window to one side, larder and wood flooring.

Also, on the half landing is a shelved airing cupboard and a further storage area which was formerly a separate cloakroom, which could be reinstated if required.
Stairs rise to the first floor landing with access to the extensive roof space which offers the opportunity to create additional accommodation and en-suite facilities if required subject to any necessary consents or permissions that may be required.
There are four double bedrooms on the first floor, two large bay fronted bedrooms situated at the front of the house, both with cast-iron fireplaces, wooden floors and plantation shutters, whilst there are two further double bedrooms at the rear.
