DESCRIPTION: A wonderful and seldom found opportunity to acquire a semi-detached house with a detached self-contained bedroom annexe.
The property dates back to the Victorian era, presenting brick elevations under a tiled roof, extended to one side with half tile hung elevations. The property retains the influence of this era with sealed unit double glazed sash windows, coupled with period features typical of its age, including stripped pine internal doors and feature fireplaces.
The accommodation to the house comprises an entrance lobby with exposed floorboards. These extend throughout the double aspect sitting room, partially carpeted, windows to the front and double doors opening on to a paved terrace.
The fitted kitchen has a good range of units to base and eye level with underlighting. 'U' shaped work surface, inset sink unit, halogen hob, oven/grill under and extractor fan above. Integrated dishwasher and 'fridge. Door concealing stairs to the first floor, window and door to the conservatory. The dining room has an aspect to the front, exposed floorboards, dado rail, brick fireplace and fitted woodburner.
The UPVC double glazed conservatory addition to the rear of the house provides a useful space and has a utility area comprising a work surface, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and adjacent space for an upright 'fridge/freezer.
To the first floor is the main bedroom having a pair of built-in wardrobe cupboards with a central cast iron fireplace and a window to the front. The second bedroom forms part of the extension and has its own adjacent shower room/wc, whilst both bedrooms are served by a family bath & shower room/wc.
The attic bedroom provides a further bedroom with skylight windows and window to the side.
The DETACHED ANNEXE presents part brick and weather boarded elevations under a slate tiled roof. The accommodation is approached via a UPVC double glazed door to a sitting room with vaulted ceiling, oak timbers, loft storage and double opening doors with matching sidelight to a decked terrace. Fitted kitchen with light oak fronted units to base and eye level with underlighting. 'L' shaped work surface, inset sink unit, hob, oven under and extractor above. Space for upright 'fridge/freezer, limed oak effect vinyl floor, window and a vaulted ceiling. The double bedroom has oak laminate flooring and an en-suite shower room/wc.
Positioned on a corner plot, vehicular access is gained off of Church Marks Lane via a 5 bar gate leading to a resin driveway providing off road parking. The fence enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn, flower beds and a brick path. There are two timber stores (one adjacent to the annexe) and steps lead down to the paved terrace which is partially covered by a pergola and climbers.
