Guide Price £475,000 to £495,000 Hunter & Company are delighted to offer for sale ‘Fernleigh’, an attractive, red-brick period property which has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners and mixes country charm with Victorian character. This well-proportioned & impeccably decorated family home is in our opinion a must see.
On entering the property, solid wood floor greets you and continues into the dining room. To the front, the lounge has an ever-popular popular wood burning stove and beautiful double-glazed sash bay window.
The dining room really is the heart of the home, comfortably fitting a six-seater dining table, sideboard and second wood burner. Both a built-in and under stairs cupboard offers extra storage options and the original sash window looks out over the rear garden. This room flows nicely into the updated kitchen.
With modern units and solid wooden worktops, complimented by matching upstands, this shaker style kitchen offers all integrated appliances. The contrasting slate effect floor continues through to the incredibly handy utility area and downstairs cloakroom. You will also find an additional storage cupboard housing the boiler and space for a washing machine & tumble dryer.
The rear garden is accessed through the utility room and stretches to approximately 100ft. Mainly laid to lawn, enclosed by panelled fencing has flower and shrub borders. This impressive outdoor space also offers a large patio area for Al Fresco dining as well as a shed and greenhouse.
Back inside, two double bedrooms can be found on the first floor, both with sash windows and feature fireplaces which offer flexible alcove storage options. We particularly love the feature landing which in the past has been used as a study area.
To the rear, it’s unusual to find such a spacious family bathroom in a property of this age. This luxury and tranquil space has been recently updated, boasting a large enclosed double shower and contemporary freestanding bath.
The master suite is situated on the second floor and has a double aspect, including stunning views to the rear out over neighbouring gardens and surrounding countryside. This roomy loft addition has plenty of space for freestanding wardrobes & chest of drawers and the en-suite has been refurbished with a high-end modern shower suite.
To the front of the property, a shingled driveway provides off road parking for two vehicles.
