The good sized sitting room has a splendid double glazed bay window overlooking Albert Road. Currently configured as a bedroom, this bright space has a chimney breast with the fireplace currently closed off. Adjacent, just before the stairs to the first floor, is the door to the dining room. This welcoming room benefits from a window to the rear garden and a built-in storage cupboard to one side of the chimney breast.
From here a door opens into the kitchen. Immediately to your right as you enter there is a useful understairs cupboard. To the left the dual aspect kitchen opens out and benefits from a range of base and wall units, with ample roll top work surfaces, an integrated oven and hob and tiled splash back. A window overlooks the rear garden whilst to the side a part glazed UPVC door opens to the garden.
To the first floor an 'L' shaped, galleried landing gives access to a generous family bathroom at the rear and two well proportioned double bedrooms. Directly in front of you as you reach the landing the family bathroom has a double ended bath, a separate shower cubicle, wc and a pedestal basin. A double glazed window overlooks the rear garden with the boiler adjacent to the left.
The middle bedroom has a chimney breast and a window to the rear. Whilst the spacious main bedroom spans the front of the house.
The low maintenance courtyard garden has been tastefully landscaped. An attractive flagstone paved patio area runs from the back door round and across the rear of the kitchen with a path to the back gate. To the right of the path a slate chipped area provides space for seating and is separated from the patio by lovely mature shrubs.
