A substantial Georgian, three bedroom, end of terrace residence, with a secluded garden and off road parking for two cars, situated in the highly sought after village of Bridge. Full of character with a wealth of original features, including sash windows, fireplaces, exposed floorboards and stripped wood doors alongside some delightful modern features, such as a striking, contemporary kitchen, beautifully appointed bathrooms and an open plan layout.
A handsome, solid wood, period front door opens into a useful entrance hall, with the plush, wide stairs to the first floor in front and the original exposed wood door to the living room to the right. The property flows beautifully, with the lounge giving on to a small lobby area with space for coats; access to the substantial, tanked cellar/laundry/utility room; WC and door into the kitchen/family room. The living room is a lovely welcoming space with exposed, original floorboards, a huge sash window flooding the room with light, a period fireplace with an inset multifuel burner, plus a large storage cupboard.
The double aspect kitchen/family room is the hub of the house, with carpeted family area and a natural slate tiled kitchen floor with underfloor heating. The space is divided by an amazing character breakfast bar/dining table. A fantastic bespoke kitchen benefits from integrated Smeg appliances, including: induction hob, extractor unit, combi oven/grill/microwave and conventional oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. A wooden framed casement window overlooks the rear garden and a half paned wooden back door opens to the patio area. Another sash window provides light into the family room and benefits from secondary glazing, as do all the sash windows in the property.
Wide, carpeted stairs lead from the entrance hall to a long 'L' shaped landing, which gives access to three double bedrooms, all with original stripped wood doors and sash windows. The master bedroom is to the front of the property and has a handsome feature fireplace, built in storage and a beautiful en-suite shower room with a vanity unit. The good sized second bedroom benefits from extensive, bespoke storage and a currently concealed fireplace, whilst the charming third bedroom has a mezzanine area and a characterful exposed beam. The family bathroom, towards the rear of the house, has laminate flooring, a lovely white suite, a heated towel rail and the same attractive porcelain slate effect tiles, as in the en-suite and WC.
To the front, the property is accessed directly from the High Street. The secluded rear garden measures approximately 25 ft and has a natural stone patio area to the rear of the house accessed via the kitchen, with an attractive path winding through the lawned area to the rear gate. On the other side of this, there is a block paved driveway which provides parking for two large cars.
