The accommodation is light and spacious with an eat-in kitchen and double doors to the adjoining living room. The secluded rear garden is an attractive feature of the property and there is ample parking to the front. EPC Band C
The property is fronted by lawns and a large gravel parking area. A pathway leads to the entrance porch and the front door open into an entrance hall which has a wood floor and a cloakroom under the stairs. From the hallway a door opens into the kitchen which is a well-proportioned room with a tiled floor and a range of fitted units on three walls. The sink sits beneath a window to the front aspect and there is a Belling Range Cooker, an integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and space for a washer/dryer. A pair of glazed double doors lead into the adjoining living room which overlooks the rear garden and has a pair of French doors opening onto the terrace. Another door leads back to the hallway, where the stairs lead to the first floor landing.
The stairs, landing and bedrooms are all carpeted and whilst the main bedroom is to the front of the property and has an eaves storage cupboard, bedrooms two and three overlook the rear garden. The bathroom has a tiled floor and a white suite of basin, wc and bath, with shower attachment and a glazed folding shower screen. There is a heated towel rail and a medicine cabinet over the sink.
The rear garden has a paved terrace which extends across the back of the house and down the side to a gate. There are two wooden railway sleepers which step up to the lawns which run the length of the garden. A Beech hedge extends along the left boundary and a close board fence along the right. Dividing the garden in the middle is a trellis archway with a climbing rose and other mature planting. The garden shed is of timber construction and benefits from an electric supply. The second half of the garden would provide a useful area for a working garden, or children’s play equipment. The end of the garden is screened by a mature hedge and a gate leads directly out to Farthingham Lane.
