A painted, partially-glazed, panelled front door opens into a compact lobby with double doors leading through to the generously sized, dual aspect sitting/dining room. Stretching to over 19 feet in width, this characterful room boasts a myriad of exposed wall and ceiling timbers, together with a charming built-in display cabinet with leaded glass doors and feature fireplace with brick surround and inset bressummer beam.
From here a door leads through to the kitchen, which has enough space for a breakfast table, fitted with a range of base and wall cupboards in a neutral colourway, accompanied by tiled splashbacks, wooden counters and inset stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer. An electric oven, hob, extractor and freezer have been integrated and there is space/plumbing in situ for a washing machine and fridge. A cupboard houses a wall-mounted Ideal gas-fired boiler. To the rear there is a lean-to porch with a door opening to the courtyard garden, which enjoys a favourable southerly aspect.
A low-level cupboard is located under the stairs, which rise and turn to a first floor landing where there are doors to both bedrooms, the larger of which has a striking part-vaulted ceiling.
A second smaller bedroom - ideal as a dressing room or study - currently provides access to a shower room with part-tiled walls and floor, comprising a corner enclosure, WC, basin and extractor fan.
Externally, a convenient gate from the front garden space leads through to the courtyard garden, which is largely paved. Subject to obtaining necessary consents, this area could potentially be converted to a off-street parking space.
