Built in 1927, the property was originally the show home and is one of the largest on the street, offering over 2,200 square feet of living space.

A downstairs w/c has been installed under the stairs with wash hand basin.

At the rear of the home is the welcoming, spacious lounge, with multi-fuel burning fireplace and stone mantle, original ceiling rose, cornicing, panelling and ornate plaster-work detailing. The room has solid oak flooring and there are patio doors leading out to the south/west facing rear garden.
The kitchen/diner also boasts a multi-fuel burning fireplace and has the wonderful feature of the original servants bells above the doorway. There is space for a large dining table and there is a door leading out to the side of the property onto the driveway. The kitchen briefly comprises; solid wooden cabinets, solid marble worktops, a double RangeMaster oven, Belfast sink, and space for a fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is plumbing in place for a dishwasher and a door to a handy larder which also houses the boiler.
To the first floor are four bedrooms. The double bedroom at the front elevation boasts a feature fireplace and an en-suite shower room.

The current owners have kept the property well maintained and other upgrades that have been completed over the years include a new roof, windows and boiler.
Externally, there is a pretty front garden with stone wall, mature shrubbery and a driveway providing off-street parking for multiple vehicles. At the rear of the property is the single garage, patio, and a large lawned area. The enclosed garden is south-west facing and so enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the day and into the evenings. In the garden lies a unique piece of history, with an air raid shelter dug underneath, which is still accessible and provides full head height outdoor storage, plus a fun place for children to explore!
