An extended, 3 bedroom bay-fronted house with a delightful south-facing garden backing onto allotments. The property enjoys a near-central position just off Milton Road, close to the river and Midsummer Common.
This delightful 1950’s house sits on a lovely south-facing plot in a peaceful cul-de-sac set just off Milton Road. In 2006 the property was extended to incorporate an open-plan kitchen / dining room, upstairs bathroom and a loft room renovation.
The accommodation briefly comprises a living room with a bay-window and open fireplace, finished with original wooden flooring. Of particular note is the property’s impressive open-plan kitchen / dining / study area which benefits from 2 skylights and bi-folding doors leading to the south-facing rear garden. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a modern range of units and finished with solid oak worktops. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a shower room, which has been fitted with a white suite including a cloakroom W.C.
Upstairs are 3 good sized bedrooms and a main bathroom. There is also access from the landing to a loft room, which has been carpeted, includes Velux windows and has eaves storage.
Outside, there is an enclosed front garden which offers potential for off-road parking, subject to the necessary consents. There is also plentiful on street parking. The south-facing rear garden offers a superb degree of privacy and backs onto nearby allotments. There is a paved terrace, well suited to alfresco dining. The remainder is laid to lawn and bordered with a variety of bushes, shrubs and trees. There is a storage shed at the foot of the garden, which does offer potential for a home office or studio to be erected in the future.
