Nestled in a quiet cul de sac in the popular Brooklands area, is
this extended home with three popular schools within walking
distance. Offered in fantastic condition throughout and boasting
three double bedrooms, this home is ideal for a growing family.
Upon entering the property, the hall leads to all the downstairs
accommodation and the stairs lead up to the first floor.
The spacious living room has a bow window to the front which adds
character to the room and there is storage built around the chimney
breast of the open fireplace. The open fire is the star of the show
in this room and the current owners have spent many a cold winter s
evening curled up with a drink, watching the flames flicker.
Decorated to a high standard with neutral colours, the room has an
inviting feel and is the perfect place to relax after a busy
A dining area that opens into the kitchen is fantastic for families
as it means parents can keep an eye on children sitting at the
table whilst they are preparing meals. Often when friends or family
are over, the person doing the cooking can be isolated in the
kitchen but this arrangement also allows everyone to be together.
There is enough space for a large dining table and the current
owners have made use of the space under the stairs to create a
bespoke storage unit which includes a wine rack.
The fresh kitchen has a country feel with wooden work surfaces and
space for a Rangemaster oven. There are plenty of storage units and
there is additional space for a dishwasher, a washing machine and a
fridge freezer. Rustic open shelving is in keeping with the style
of the kitchen and allows for many of your kitchen items to be
reached easily. A window overlooks the garden so any children can
be seen as they play in the garden.
A W C completes the downstairs accommodation.
The first floor has three double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The main bedroom is to the rear overlooking the garden and
currently has a king size bed with enough space for bed side
tables. The second bedroom is at the front and is currently being
used as the office. Due to its shape, this room may be preferred to
be used as the main bedroom as you can have the bed at one end of
it and a wardrobe and drawers at the other end. The third bedroom
has dual aspect windows and is being used as a nursery. Although
the smaller of the three rooms, it is still a good size so there
should not be too many disagreements when deciding who gets which
When the current owners purchased this home there was a shower
cubicle in the bathroom, a bathtub has been re installed to make it
more family friendly and there is a rain fall shower over it. It is
partially tiled with subway tiles, there is a built storage
cupboard, and a window provides natural ventilation.
Outside, the secluded rear garden gets the afternoon sun, with
strategically placed zones to ensure that you can follow it. A
raised decking area where the garage used to be is great for
catching up with friends and the ideal place to have your BBQ.
There is a separate patio area, and a winding path with flower
borders leads to the end of the garden where the current owners
have a table and chairs to enjoy the last of the evening sun.
At the front of the property, there is a carport with parking for a
further two cars in front of it. There is an electric charge point
and flower borders add some colour.
