Flooded with natural light, the kitchen is situated at the front of the house and has been fully updated with contemporary wall and base units, complete with contrasting worktop surfaces incorporating a black composite sink unit positioned beneath a window providing a lovely view of Walkershaugh. Additionally, the kitchen includes integrated appliances such as a double electric oven, induction hob, dishwasher, washing machine, and fridge freezer. Elsewhere on the ground floor, there is a versatile room with an external door out to the rear garden currently used as a dining area, and adjacent is a cosy home study ideal for those working from home. The first floor of this property has been thoughtfully remodelled to provide four comfortable bedrooms, all accessible via a hallway landing. The master bedroom is a good size and boasts a newly added private modern en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, one of which is situated at the front of the property currently used as a further reception room, which benefits from a large window that floods the room with natural light whilst offering views over the bowling green and hills beyond. The other two bedrooms are positioned at the rear which both are of a comfortable size. The accommodation of this wonderful home is completed by a family bathroom that includes a WC, wash hand basin, and a panelled bath with an electric shower over.
Externally; there are private gardens to the front, side, and rear of the property. The front garden enjoys areas laid to lawn surrounded by mature shrubbery and bushes and is partially bound by stone walling. A tarmacadam driveway provides off-street parking which leads to the single garage which benefits from power and light. A chipped pathway to the side of the property leads round to the private side and rear garden which is a manageable size providing the perfect space for alfresco dining and entertaining in the summer months. The rear gardens are bound by a mixture of brick walling, timber fencing, and hedging.
