This charming, extended semi detached Victorian cottage has been much improved by the current owners, almost doubling the size of the original property, however there is still scope for further improvement. It is superbly located in Boughton-under-Blean's historic main street, and close to all the local amenities, making this ideal for those wanting the tranquillity that village life offers.
A solid wood front door opens into the welcoming sitting room, where there is an original exposed brick fireplace at one end, with a wood surround and mantle, plus useful cupboards built in either side. There are two sash windows to the front, practical laminate flooring and recessed spot lighting.
A door leads through to the kitchen/dining room, where there are a range of cream wall and base units set around marble effect work surfaces. There is an inset stainless steel sink and drainer, space for a cooker and dishwasher, and an American style fridge/freezer.
A staircase rises to the first floor providing ample storage beneath. Through to the inner lobby useful space is provided for coats and shoes and there is an airing cupboard where the boiler is located.
From here, there is access to the well appointed bathroom, which has been fitted with a white suite including a bath, wash basin and WC. Space is also provided for a washing machine.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, all accessible from the landing. The generous size master bedroom is located at the front, with two sash windows and two built in wardrobes, whilst the two single bedrooms are located to the rear, overlooking the rear garden.
There is a beautiful period brick retaining wall, with brick steps leading up past the front garden (which is laid to lawn) to the front door. The small, south facing rear garden is completely enclosed and laid to patio. This offers a high degree privacy and is a blank canvass for someone to complete.
