Alongside, and with a step down from the living room, is a generous sized conservatory with a ceramic tiled floor, located to the south façade and screened by trees and shrubs. An inner hallway housing a double fitted wardrobe with a further fitted double shelved cupboard adjacent, leads through to the kitchen fitted with a range of Oak fronted wall and base units with drawers and complemented with a Spanish-styled terracotta tiled floor and ceramic tiled worktops, slot-in gas cooker, spaces for a fridge and dishwasher, an inset 1½ bowl stainless steel sink and window to the rear garden. To complete the kitchen is a dining area immediately off creating an open T shape with plenty of room for a good size table and chairs. A generous sized lean-to style lobby with a polycarbonate roof is located off the kitchen accessed via a door, which is currently used as utility room with plumbing and electrics for a washing machine and tumble drier, together with a stainless steel sink unit. From here, a further door gives access to the rear garden.
To the first floor, are two bedrooms, one being double with a fitted wardrobe and the benefit of a dormer window, the other, a large single with twin windows to its southerly aspect and an eaves storage cupboard. There is also a small landing area with a handy fitted wardrobe cupboard.
Outside, the property is approached via a wooden staircase with handrail leading up from the roadside to a secluded front garden laid to lawn and bordered by wooden fencing and adorned with a variety of eye-catching tropical plants and shrubs with a greenhouse to one side.

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately, but grant 28 days to achieve exchange of contracts from the date the buyer's solicitor is in receipt of the draft contracts and a further 28 days thereafter to complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% to a minimum of £6,000 which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. Fees paid to the Auctioneer may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Furt
