A quite superb three bedroom semi detached home set within an attractive cul-de-sac in the picturesque village of Clophill. With a sizeable front and side plot the property, in our opinion, lends itself perfectly to further extension and enlargement possibilities creating an even more substantial dwelling.
Approach to the home is onto an ample shingled driveway allowing parking for four to five vehicles. A detached single garage occupies part of this space and is accessed via a smart up and over door, while under the window sits a lawn area. An additional green area is stocked full of vibrant, mature plants, shrubs and bushes.
Once inside, the entrance hall provides a spacious feel with stairs leading to the first floor accommodation and a useful cloakroom is tucked to the front. This comprises of a cistern concealed low level wc and wash hand basin set into a vanity unit. Running pararel is the principal living room, this is particularly well proportioned measuring in excess of 18ft with a beautiful inset wood burning stove mounted onto a raised marble hearth and encased by a chunky wooden surround ensuring a real focal point to the room. Beyond here double doors open into the kitchen/diner, again, this space is generous and spans the rear of the home. Fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units it has been overlaid with lighter work surfaces. Space for several free standing appliances has been cleverly woven into the design including cooker, dishwasher and washing machine, whilst modern tiling has been added to the walls and floor. The dining area affords ample space for a table and chairs, creating a truly sociable area with ample natural daylight flooding through the sliding patio doors which open into the garden. Completing this level is a family room which could, equally, be utilised as a playroom for younger children or a work from home space creating a really versatile environment.
Moving upstairs the landing gives way to all first floor accommodation, the master of which sits to the front and has useful wardrobe storage. Bedrooms two and three are also well appointed and both house storage cupboards. One occupies the front elevation while the other sits to the rear. All are serviced by way of a family bathroom which has been stylishly refitted with a white three piece suite comprising of a panelled bath with shower attachment and glass screen positioned over, low level wc and a wash hand basin set into a vanity unit. The look has been finished with modern fully tiled walls, heated towel rail and obscure window.
Externally the rear garden has been immaculately landscaped with a generous paved patio area perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Beyond here a low level retaining wall offers steps up to a slightly raised lawn with a deep border running along the front which has been stocked with an assortment of shrubs and bushes. The boundary is enclosed by timber fencing and provides gated side access.
