This 1950's home has been sympathetically updated yet retains many of its original mid-century features, including original doors, picture rails and metal casement windows. The addition of a rear extension has given the property a feel of space and light and takes full advantage of the spectacular views. At the front double doors open into an entrance porch with a quarry tiled floor. In turn a wooden front door opens into the entrance hall. From the entrance hall stairs rise to the first floor with an under stairs cupboard. A ground floor shower room has been created from part of the original house and as well as providing a shower enclosure with electric shower there is a WC and vanity unit with wash hand basin. An attractive stained-glass window offers natural light. The cosy lounge has a bay window overlooking the front and an original open fireplace with recesses on either side.
The hub of the home is definitely the kitchen/dining/ living space added in 2014 by the current owners. You can't help but be WOWED by the uninterrupted views from the full width sliding doors at the far end. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of modern units with attractively tiled splash backs and work top surfaces. A five burner stainless steel gas range cooker sits within a recess and has an extractor above. There is ample space for a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The floor has been laid with a slate tiled floor. In the dining/living area there is a laminate floor benefitting from underfloor heating and a large automatic opening Velux rooflight. A door opens to a useful utility space, having a Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier and a door to the rear garden. A further door opens into the garage, supplied with power and light and an up and over door.

Bedroom one has a large walk-in wardrobe, with shelving and hanging, bedroom two benefits from the southerly aspect and the stunning views.
Finally, the bathroom is fitted with a white suite including a mains fed shower over the bath. A large cupboard houses the combination boiler and shelving, back to the wall WC and concealed cistern. Slate tiles have been used to create shelving with a surface mounted wash basin.
