Dating from the mid-1950s this delightful three bedroom semi detached cottage was originally built for railway workers. Situated in the sought-after rural village of Selling the property had all new double glazed windows and external doors fitted just this year and boasts a wonderful secluded garden along with driveway parking for two cars.
A smart, traditionally styled, part glazed front door opens, from the gable end wall of the house, into a generous entrance hallway with a window to the left overlooking the rear garden. The stairs to the first floor are adjacent, with the kitchen to the end of the hallway and the reception rooms to the front of the house.
The living room and dining room span the front of the property and are linked via an archway. The dining room chimney breast houses a regularly serviced multifuel burner with useful shelving and built-in cupboards either side. A double glazed window provides natural light, overlooking the front garden. The sitting room has a lovely large window to the front also and more useful shelving and storage flanking its chimney breast.
The kitchen has a splendid range of attractive, farmhouse style wall and base units, with roll top work surfaces and stylish metro tyle splash back. Hard wearing ceramic floor tiles continue into the utility area which branches off from the kitchen at a right angle. With further units and worktop space as well as plumbing for washing, space for fridge freezer and French doors to the rear garden.
On the first floor a splendid galleried landing is illuminated by a window overlooking the rear garden. At the top of the stairs the fully tiled bathroom has a smart contemporary suite with an electric shower over the bath. To the front of the house two splendid sized double bedrooms overlook Fox Lane and the hop fields beyond. The bedroom currently used as a study has useful storage cupboards either side the of the chimney breast, one of these houses the regularly serviced combi boiler. Whilst to the rear, a good-sized box room has built in shelving storage and a wonderful view of the rear garden.
At the front of the house a block paved area provides parking for two cars with a shingle path to the left hand side taking one to the front door. Attractive trellis work and mature plant separate parking from a lawned area with low trees and mature shrubs.
The rear garden is approx. 138 ft long. A patio area sits directly behind the house, giving access to a side gate and a further useful room attached to the rear of the utility room with power and light. A splendid lawn stretches out from here, screened by well maintained hedges and sculpted conifers and providing a wonderful private space. Towards the rear raised brick beds make an excellent vegetable garden. Beyond this there are low fruit trees and two potting sheds, one brick, one wooden. Whilst across the rear there is a more substantial wooden workshop with compost space to the side.
AGENT'S NOTE: This property was formerly an airy house (non-standard construction), however we understand from the vendor that it has since been regularised to a traditional standard of construction.
