This 1930's home has been with the same family for the last 60 years. Many of its original features remain including the wooden doors, stripped floorboards, picture rails and wood panelling. This is a great opportunity for a buyer to transform it into a lovely comfortable home.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor there is an entrance porch with a terracotta tiled floor and diamond leaded glazed window and door opening into the hall. A staircase with a wood panelled balustrade ascends to the first floor, with an under stairs cupboard, and exposed floorboards continuing into the sitting room. This room features an original tiled fireplace and a bay window to the front. Adjacent to this is the dining room having direct access into the splendid rear garden through double opening doors. The kitchen has a terracotta tiled floor, cupboard storage space, and additionally the original walk-in pantry. There is also space for a cooker and fridge/freezer. Across from here is where the integral garage would have originally have been. This was converted to make ancillary accommodation. A wash hand basin has been fitted, there is also built-in storage and a window to the front.
On the first floor there is a generous sized landing with exposed floorboards continuing into the bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. There is a large walk-in cupboard and a window to the front. A hatch provides access to the loft space which offers scope to extend into subject to the necessary planning permissions. Two of the bedrooms are situated to the rear, affording views across the garden and into the Abbey grounds, with bedroom one to the front. The bathroom is fitted with a bath and wash hand basin. There are two built-in cupboards, one of which houses the hot water tank. There is a separate WC adjacent to this.
