Incredibly VersatileINCREDIBLY VERSATILE - At David Cliff we absolutely love properties that are unique, especially when they are versatile and I have to say that this is up there with one of the best. If the fact you have driveway parking in this location, so close to town, isn`t enough to make you want to buy it then the internal layout will really excite you.
The current owners have very cleverly extended this house so that it now offers a wealth of modern, open downstairs space as well as a first floor extension which offers an additional bedroom in comparison to the original house. As you enter the house you`ll notice a downstairs cloakroom to the right hand side with the kitchen just across the hall. What I love about this house is that it is super practical and one of the factors of its usefulness is the amount of the storage. As you walk down the hallway you will notice down on your right an understairs cupboard but then as soon as you enter the living room you also have another large cupboard to the right, which was created by the sellers during their renovations.
The main living room is the "wow" room in this house. As soon as you walk in you instantly get a sense of light and space which is aided by the vaulted ceiling towards the back of the house and the fact that the living room then opens in to the second reception space round to the left - the log burner in the corner adds that hint of character and you just instantly want to experience a cosy winters evening in this loving family home. At the same time, the patio doors out on to the garden with ample space for a dining table in the extension, you also think...wow, excellent BBQ house!!
As I mentioned earlier, this house is really versatile and the sellers have used various spaces for multiple functions over the years they have lived in the property. For example, as you walk to the end of the living room and wander round to the left you will currently find the play area. This was originally the dining room but could easily be another snug area or just utilised as it is. At the end of this room, overlooking the front of the house is the study. Well I say study, it is currently set up with a desk etc but has also been a bedroom in the past. Next to the study/bedroom/whatever you would like it to be, you have another stair case that goes up in to the loft room which was formed as part of the extension work that the sellers had carried out. This room is currently being used a bedroom which comfortably fits a double bed and makes an ideal guest room for visitors. This is one of those houses where I could sit and guess how someone would use the space, only to revisit in a few years time to find they are using it totally differently to how even they first thought - it really is incredibly versatile.
Upstairs in the original part of the house there are two double bedrooms, both of which have built in wardrobes and the main bathroom sits in between the too - don`t worry, the bathroom is on one of the original outside walls so you still have a window for light and ventilation.
You don`t really notice that Carey Road is on a very slight hill but when you go into the garden of this house you start to see the benefits as it is totally private with no one overlooking you - a rarity if you want to live in the town centre of any town! The garden has a large patio which steps down on to the lawn and there are borders that run across the back and down both sides of the plot - there is an ideal amount of space for children to play, or just to relax on a hot summers day.
This is one of those houses that you simply just have to come and look at - call us today and come and see all it all for yourself.
