2 Bed Maisonette
Offers Over £115,000
Quietly situated on the edge of Stow within easy reach of the village amenities and Border Rail station, 79 Earlston Road is a gem of a property, perfect for couples and young families looking for their first purchase. The current owners have thoroughly modernised the two-bedroom, first floor maisonette, including installing a new gas central heating system, remodelling the bathroom, adding kitchen units and decorating throughout. With woodland walks and rolling scenery close by, the property will also appeal to buyers looking for a more rural location.
A set of external steps lead up to an elevated sun terrace, with a private entrance to the maisonette. The front door has glazed panel inserts which let natural light stream into the ‘L’ shaped hallway making for a bright space as you enter. The hallway has half-height, painted wood panelled walls and slate tiled flooring that continues through to the dining kitchen, quietly tying the spaces together superbly, while the under-stair cupboard provides useful storage space. The lounge is a good size with a window looking out to the back garden with partial, raised views of the countryside beyond. To the left side of the window sits a handsome open fireplace, while the sanded floorboards and cornicing add even more character to the room. The kitchen is bright and welcoming with a combination of fixed and freestanding units, all with wooden worktops and white doors and drawer fronts. Open wall shelving and long-wired lighting add a relaxed feel to the space. A window looking out to the front provides great light into the room, and there is ample space accommodate a family sized dining table and chairs. An extra bonus to the kitchen is a delightful little annex to the corner where the kitchen sink and additional storage are located, with two windows bathing the space in natural light. Opposite the lounge is the recently refurbished bathroom, with a over bath shower, lovely vanity sink unit, chrome heated towel rail and white wet wall surrounds. An opaque glazed window sits above the WC with an extractor fan in the top corner. The stairs lead up to a modest sized landing, with double doors at the top which open to an airing cupboard which also houses the recently installed gas combi boiler. The main bedroom is to the left side, with a dormer window giving lovely treetop views. The bedroom has two built-in wardrobes and space to the side of even more bedroom storage. The second, smaller bedroom is perfectly sized for a single bed or even as a home office that could double as a guest room with a fold-out sofa bed. A Velux window in the coombed ceiling, allows great light into the bedroom.
