What it's got

This property is a fine example of Edwardian cottage having been modernised over recent years yet still retaining much of its original charm and character.

The separate dining room again boasts an original ornate cast iron fire with wooden flooring, large cupboard under the stairs and door to the garden. An archway leads through to modern fitted kitchen with built in appliances and pleasant views over the garden. Many of the neighbouring properties have extended the rear to provide an openplan kitchen/diner/family room this would be subject to usual planning consents. As you walk upstairs you will find a large master bedroom with ample space also boasting an original ornate fireplace and built in wall to wall wardrobes. There is another good size double and a luxury bathroom suite with built in airing cupboard. On the top floor is a double bedroom with velux windows and an en-suite cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. The garden is a great blank canvas being laid predominately to lawn with a patio area, to the rear there is an allocated parking space accessed via a private lane.

What the owner says

"I saw the house when out with a friend cycling and it really appealed to me as was in an area I was hoping to buy in. Couldn't get if my mind so arranged a viewing my mum who is sadly no longer with us and we both loved it. Loved being here as we had good neighbours who were very helpful from the moment my son and I arrived. Living here also meant my son went to Lilliput school and then Baden Powell which he really enjoyed. The house is also very cosy and as a single mum I have always felt safe in my home. It's a new chapter in my life my son has turned 18 and is now branching out so its time to look at moving to a new home as I have been here for 14 years."
