The shop front and store room sit to the roadside, both with front access to the pavement, and both could easily be used as additional living space if required. Across the hallway is the sitting room with striking inglenook fireplace and French doors that open into the generous walled garden. Moving along the hallway you will find various storage cupboards and a short set of stairs that leads up to a handy shower room, before stepping down into the kitchen. The quaint kitchen space has been kept suitably traditional, with bespoke wooden units and Rangemaster cooker along with ample room for a breakfast dining set in front of a small fireplace with stove. To the back of the room is a space ideal for a tall fridge-freezer and a utility room/WC. The garden can also be accessed from the kitchen. Taking the stairs to the first floor you will find two double bedrooms across the landing from one another, and ahead of you lies the study, which in turn leads to a bathroom with claw-footed bathtub. The stairs to the second-floor open directly into the third double bedroom, which boasts a full ensuite bathroom and separate reading room.
Stepping out from the kitchen or sitting room you find yourself on a South-Easterly facing concrete patio that leads on to the rest of the outside space. As you walk along the path the garden widens into a truly glorious space to behold, especially considering the proximity to town. A large lawn area with well stocked borders sits nicely screened by high garden walls to your righthand side, while passing neatly bordered plant beds, a greenhouse and timber shed on your left. To the bottom of the garden is a hidden water feature, nestled beyond a well kept and colourful more nature area. To the far right is a brick and tiled workshop ideal for those looking to work from home, including a pleasant gravelled seating area just in front. Here you will also find the off-road parking for the property, accessed via a gate from the lane that runs beside and suitable for only smaller vehicles. Further parking is available opposite the front of the house on the corner of Nethergate Street.
