A gated entrance from Douglas Street opens to well kept gardens and shared paving, extending to the rear of the property. The main door opens to a bright hallway, with further doors opening to the breakfasting kitchen, utility area and living room to the far end. The kitchen has the welcoming feel of a country cottage; fitted with cream fronted units, with a complimenting timber worktop, neutral tiled splashbacks and contrasting paintwork - it is both stylish and practical. An integrated oven and four burner hob with extraction hood over, with recessed spotlighting above, give a contemporary look. The original exposed stonework is a charming feature, and there is adequate space for dining furnishings with plenty natural light from window overlooking the side. Adjacent, a useful utility cupboard with window houses the laundry facilities. In keeping with the country feel, the living room is a beautiful space and a generous size, with original stripped wooden flooring, muted tones and feature wall with wood-burning stove providing a lovely focal point finishing the country look.
An adjoining door opens to an inner hallway with two well presented and spacious double bedrooms positioned to the far end; both fitted in continuous style with neutral fitted carpeting and wall coverings, in-built storage and windows allowing plenty natural light. The bathroom has been thoughtfully upgraded and comprises corner bath, walk-in shower, W/C and washhand basin, with stylish wet walling, white washed walls and the original stripped floorboards. Across the hallway, a large walk-in cupboard provides excellent storage solutions and could lend itself as a study space.
