Owner's Comments

"When I first viewed this property the Zen quality of the woodland garden sold the house to me. The backdrop is amazing and never ceases to enchant me"

"I will miss this lovely neighbourhood as I used to walk the dogs everyday on the sports centre that is just down the road"


The delightful woodland back garden offers an attractive leafy outlook with enchanting views yet located three miles from the city centre. Two generous reception rooms together with three double bedrooms are highlights of the accommodation with the extremely large master bedroom offering the opportunity to be sub-divided to create an additional bedroom or en-suite facility. A wealth of stripped Parana pine woodwork is found throughout the interior and the majority of the rooms enjoy a dual aspect that ensures an excellent degree of natural light. This superb property will appeal to upsizing or downsizing purchasers seeking a quality residence in an attractive leafy location.


The entrance porch has a double glazed door leading to the central hallway where the original staircase ascends to the first floor. Parana pine flooring flows seamlessly through to the principal reception rooms that are approached via small paned doors and the cloakroom is positioned at the rear of the hall with a modern white suite and useful double store cupboard. Enjoying a triple aspect, the spacious lounge is a comfortable size room with a raised coal effect gas fire that is a pleasing focal point. Double glazed doors open to the patio and enjoy delightful views of the lovely leafy backdrop. Located on the right of the hall, the spacious dining room has a pleasant front aspect. The kitchen, with fully tiled walls and floor, comprises a range of wall and base units that have complementary Corian work surfaces that incorporate a sink unit and a mixer tap.

On the first floor, the landing features Parana pine floorboards that flow seamlessly through to the bedrooms that all benefit from small paned doors.

The extremely large triple aspect master bedroom is positioned above the lounge and extends the full depth of the property. There is ample space for wardrobes and an en-suite facility or the creation of an additional bedroom. Bedroom two is an equally impressive dual aspect room with scope for an en- suite or dressing area. A low level glazed panel allows light to permeate to the stairs.

Steps lead down to a paved lower terrace with a pergola and low level door permits access to the storage space that is partly below the garage with a light.
