A well presented Victorian family home with a wealth of original features, kitchen/ breakfast room and low maintenance garden within walking distance of the station and town centre.
Situated in a prime residential road within 0.3 miles of the main line station and town centre is this substantial Victorian terraced family home offering a wealth of original features including stripped wooden floors and fireplaces.
Approaching the property through the wrought iron gate and up the path there is a pretty front garden with flowering annuals and mature shrubs. There is an entrance porch which in turn leads to the original front door and hallway. From here there is a dining room at the front of the house with a bay window and original fireplace with tiled inserts. The current owners use the reception room in the middle of the house as their sitting room with its stripped wooden floor and beautiful fireplace, but the accommodation is very flexible. There is a useful understairs cupboard and the sitting room has doors and an open window to the kitchen making for a very social space. The kitchen itself is of a good size with space for all the expected appliances and a lean-to brings light and warmth to the kitchen/ breakfast area.
The first floor has the main bedroom to the front with an ensuite cloakroom. This could be made into a shower room if desired as the plumbing is available.
The family bathroom is spacious and was refitted recently with a bath and a shower over, WC and basin. A useful cupboard gives further storage and there is a pretty feature fireplace. The second bedroom is of a good size and like the bathroom has kept its feature fireplace.
On the second floor is the loft room. This is a spacious conversion with excellent head height, and ample eaves storage. It is currently used as a home office but could easily be a bedroom if desired.
Outside the garden is low maintenance with a shed, outside tap and patio as well as access to the rear.
We would highly recommend a viewing as this property is full of charm and in a great location.
