Sellers view

We bought the house brand new in 1988. I was impressed with the McAlpine design, large kitchen double garage and large drive and from the start - it was our family house.
My mother came to live with us and we extended the family home making for her a self-contained flat, an annex with her own garden and patio. We extended the family home adding a family room and for our business, more rooms including a large office and meeting room and used the opportunity to increase two of the bedroom sizes and build in lots of storage in the shape of cupboards and wardrobes.
When my mother departed, we rented out the annex for seven years. The tenants were very happy and we hardly knew they were there as they had their own entrance and courtyard to use.
We grew many vegetables in a raised vegetable bed in the garden lawn as well as in the greenhouse and for a hobby of restoring cars, used the garage.
Our children are now married and living away, its time to say goodbye to a family house, a place for business, an annex as the home of a family member and a great source of income to rent it out.

Agents view

With over 2700 square foot of living accommodation, there is plenty of room to grow into plus the opportunity to put your own stamp on a forever family home as some minor modernisation is required.

Tucked away at the end of this popular cul-de-sac, the house sits on a corner plot and offers a large block paved driveway with ample
parking.
There is an entrance porch which leads through to the hallway with lots of handy cupboards and wardrobes which the current owner had built to accommodate shoes and coats galore. There is also the all important downstairs toilet.

On entering the house, to the left there are two internal rooms, one is a large office and the other is a study with external door which uses part of one side of
the double garage. The other part of the garage comfortably fits a car and still has ample storage space.

Turning right, leads to a kitchen/diner which is of a good size and offers views over the garden to the rear and a door to the covered patio.
The opportunity exists for a refit to give you the chance to design your dream kitchen, exactly as you want it. To increase the size further, you could simply knock through into the adjoining dining room which has a family room leading off it with its entrance to the covered patio and onto the garden. Through the double doors from the dining room, you'll find the cosy front aspect living room with charming fire place and bay window.
There is a utility room off the kitchen which gives access to the annex via a lockable door.

The annex is also completely self-contained with its own access down the side of the garage. It consists of a private courtyard garden, own
entrance with hallway and storage cupboard, one double bedroom, full size bathroom, great size kitchen and living room with feature fireplace and patio doors onto the patio of the main house.
The current owners did let the annex to a private tenant who stayed for over 7 years paying an end rent of £925pcm. If the annex was
refurbished including new kitchen and bathroom, a much higher rental could be achievable.
This offers new owners the chance to earn substantial income should the annex not be required in the short term.

Upstairs the property has four double bedrooms, two with en-suites (one shower en-suite and one shower & bath en-suite) and a family bathroom. There is lots of storage space in the bedrooms, airing cupboards and a pull down ladder access to the loft.

Outside the garden has a sun trap covered patio area and a nice rectangular lawn area with a raised vegetable bed, a greenhouse and a shed.

The property has gas central heating and there is double glazing throughout, with the glass being renewed and updated in 2022. There are solar panels on the roof which gives an annual return and makes electricity bills inexpensive. The house also has a working burglar alarm installed.
