Found in an extremely enviable location along Broadway, this 1952 built property has been beautifully remodelled and maintained by the current owners, and is now a three bedroom chalet that exemplifies a home having been improved gradually over the years, with no expense spared. Considered materials with brilliant finishes offer style and sophistication to each room. The home sits on a corner plot with surprising front, side and rear garden space, a detached garage plus parking for two. Our sellers have a clear plan in place, having found their next home already.
Entering through a secure porch with dual front doors and space to kick off coats and shoes, you can turn left into a large separate living room, right into the open plan kitchen-dining-utility area, or go straight on towards the downstairs bedroom and shower room. A balanced floor plan lends itself to families and couples looking for flexible daily living and is perfect for those wanting their own space.. It’s also perfect for keeping the ‘front room’ off limits to the kids!
Having been extended by the current owners, the kitchen space spills into a utility area with an extra prep sink, plenty of storage/worktop space and this space can easily be used as a second living area. Characterful features include a large skylight, a stable-style composite back door and a porthole window to the garden. The large granite-topped island is a magnet for communal coffees, plus there is plenty of space adjacent for a large dining set, alongside a home office desk. Large windows in this space let the light flood in throughout the day, whilst keeping the space private.
Upstairs the bedrooms sit front and back of the property, separated by the staircase and a gorgeous bathroom with a luxurious roll top bath, walk in rain shower and plenty of space for pampering and relaxing. Both bedrooms also offer great space, with room for double/king beds and plenty of built in wardrobe space in addition to eaves stowage. The owners redesigned their dormer roofs to offer maximum usable area- it was worth it- they’re bright and airy whilst remaining cosy and quiet in the evening.
A ground floor bedroom is found right next to the shower room, which could easily become an en suite if required. This is a perfect room for those planning for older age living, as a guest room, or for those wanting a teenager out of the way!
Wrap Around Gardens.
Outside space includes a paved patio area under a pergola, perfect for a bistro dining set, well-maintained lawns and boarders that create a barrier to the surrounding roads and a summer house for when you want some shade! This garden feels private and the owners find the sun throughout the day and late into the evening, it’s a safe space for kids to run riot, with secure gating to the front garden and rear parking. It really issn ideal setting for entertaining friends and family. A staple of homes in this category is the detached garage with a power door and lighting- great for extra storage or for small vehicles. The drive in front of the garage is large enough to get two modern cars off road.
