A fabulous non estate 3 bedroom detached house standing on a good size plot built in the mid 1950’s, extended and extensively remodelled by the current owners. The modernisation programme has taken place since 2014 and includes a substantial porch extension and a superb partially vaulted lounge/dining room.
The property is situated in an elevated position on the southern side of Leylands Road, within walking distance of the town centre, mainline railway station, St Johns Park and a selection of local schools.
The accommodation now includes an enclosed porch (2017) with oak floor opening to the entrance hall with oak floor and stairs to the first floor. A cloakroom fitted with a white suite. The kitchen is well fitted with cream cupboards with space for all appliances. From the kitchen there is access to a utility room which has sliding doors to the rear garden and to the opposite end sliding doors open to a useful workshop/log store (if required, subject to planning permission the utility room and kitchen could easily be combined to create a kitchen/family room and the workshop/log store could then be the utility room).
A particular feature however is the generous light and airy triple aspect lounge/dining room which has a window and bifold doors opening to the rear garden as well as 2 velux windows to create even more light. The floor is also laid to exposed oak and the fireplace has an inset woodburner with an exposed brick chimney breast. From this room there is access to a gym space and storage area with a Velux window and electrics already installed (this could easily be converted to create a study space).
On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom refitted in 2016 with a white suite, including a good size bath with an independent power shower and underfloor heating.
Outside, the new block paved driveway provides parking for 3 cars with access to a storage room (formerly the garage). There is side access to the workshop/log store.
The south facing rear garden measures 53’ x 37’. A full width flagstone patio abuts the house with steps flanked by timber edged borders leading to a lawned garden with water feature. Raised vegetable boxes. Timber summer house new in 2017 with double glazed windows and electricity cable laid ready for connection. The whole is enclosed by panelled fencing with a hedge to the rear and garden lights.
Benefits include gas fired central heating (the boiler is located in the kitchen) and uPVC framed double glazed windows.
