To the ground floor are two large reception rooms both with oak floors and having upvc double glazed sliding sash windows. The siting room has an open fire within a feature fireplace, whilst the dining room features a living flame effect gas stove within an imposing sandstone surround. The kitchen to the rear has a range of fitted wall and base units with an integrated fridge, a rear door leads to the enclosed yard, which contains two good sized stores, one of which houses the washing machine. A gate from the yard opens out to the no-through road at the rear. The stairs to the first floor are carpeted with a runner and ornate brass stair grips. The large bathroom is at the rear of the property off the half landing and benefits from a bath and corner shower. A large upvc sliding sash window floods the landing with natural light. From the landing there are two double bedrooms, the first of which has a large bank of fitted wardrobes and a decorative fireplace. The second also has fitted wardrobes and an exposed brick feature wall to the rear.
The gated rear yard is complemented by a well kept paved garden at the front of the property which sits behind a low fence and features a range of mature plants.
