A ‘DELIGHTFUL’ three-bedroom semi-detached house, which is well presented throughout, occupying a lovely corner plot on Hyde Lane.

The house was built in 1935 and has been loved and cared for by the current owners since 2016 and has the additional benefit of planning permission for a two-storey extension.

Entrance is through the front door into the porch, which is currently being used as an office space.

From here, there are stairs rising to the first floor and doors opening to the principal rooms.

The kitchen/diner is located on one side of the house and benefits from a variety of modern fitted wall and base units with solid wood worktops over an inset sink with a drainer.

There is a large freestanding cooker with a five-ring gas hob and hood over, an integrated dishwasher, and space for a fridge-freezer.

There is a bespoke breakfast bar in front of bi-folding doors, which open out to the front patio area.

There are built-in cupboards with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer within as well as room for storage and the gas-fired boiler.

From here, there is a small downstairs WC and a door opening to the back garden.

The current owners fell in love as soon as they saw the garage and parking. They were drawn to the larger-than-average plot immediately as they have several vehicles that they need to park.

They particularly love “The open plan kitchen diner. It has been a fantastic space to entertain guests”.

They will mostly miss “the way the sun fills the kitchen with natural light through the bi-fold doors”.

They have also enjoyed the tucked-away feel of being on the end of the row and overlooking the fields in front. The access to the M5 motorway at junction 25 has also been really beneficial.

The lounge is situated on the other side of the house and enjoys an attractive outlook over the front and rear gardens.

There are French doors to the rear aspect which flood the room with natural light and offer easy access out to the rear garden.

A large window looks to the front aspect and out to the front garden. There is a feature chimney breast and a recess beneath the stairs for storage.

Upstairs, on the first-floor landing, there is a loft access hatch, with a drop-down ladder and doors to the three bedrooms and family bathroom.

The front two bedrooms are both a generous size and have windows overlooking the countryside beyond to the front aspect as well as built-in wardrobes.

The third bedroom is at the rear of the house and enjoys a lovely view down the garden at the rear. The family bathroom is partially tiled and is fitted with a three-piece suite including WC, washbasin, and bath with shower over.

Outside, the house benefits from a lovely wrap-around garden due to the corner position of the plot, which is approximately 15 acres in total.

The garden is accessed via a large five-bar gate and enters onto an area laid to chippings, providing ample parking for several vehicles.

There is a large double garage, measuring approximately 6.48 x 5.11 meters, with barn-style doors to the front, personnel door to the side, power, lighting, and water supply.

There is a lean-to shed attached to the side of the garage as well as a detached outbuilding, which could be used as a studio/home office, again with connected services.

The house has solar panels installed on the roof space which are owned outright and included in the purchase of the house.

They generate approximately £2,500 income per annum to the household and have an excellent feed-in tariff rate which can be transferred on to the new owners. As a result, the property carries a B-rating EPC certificate.
