This very pretty, white rendered, end terrace cottage has beautifully presented accommodation throughout the comfortably spacious rooms which comprise a lounge with ingle fireplace with log burner, a sunroom overlooking the rear gardens, a Shaker style breakfast kitchen, two spacious double bedrooms and a contemporary four-piece bathroom. Always a benefit in Croston, there are two parking spaces and a detached single garage plus a timber storage shed - and all this is within an easy walking distance of Croston Moss and lovely dog walks.
The painted, timber panelled front entrance door with leaded glass inset opens to the hall with tiled flooring, a ceiling light and a radiator to warm arrival. A high-level wall mounted cupboard houses the electricity meter and a broad staircase with handrail rises to the first floor.
A tongue-and-groove latch door opens to the charming and comfortably spacious lounge with painted, exposed ceiling beams, a window to the front and five wall lights for evening ambience. However, the eye is drawn to the ingle-set log burning stove resting on a stone hearth and having an inset oak beam and plat rack over whilst a television point is conveniently positioned to the side. A walk-in under-stairs cupboard with light provides excellent storage of household essentials as well as having a coat rack and shelves.
A further latch door opens to the kitchen which is fitted with a good range of ivory-shaded wall and base cabinets with pewter handles and incorporating drawer banks, wine rack and shelving and ample space for a table and chairs.
The wood effect work surfaces have an inset one and a half bowl enamel sink unit with swan neck mixer tap over which is set beneath the side window. A brick-faced niche with stone lintel and tiled splash-back houses the Smeg four-burner gas cooker with an extractor fan above and alongside is space for a larder-style fridge freezer. There is plumbing for an automatic dishwasher, a wall mounted Vaillant gas central heating boiler, a wall mounted television point and a ceiling light.
The Amtico flooring continues beyond the glazed door into the sun room which is lit by recessed perimeter down-lighting at evening-time and has a lantern roof and French windows set between side windows opening into the garden.
Accessed via a path to the side of the sun room, the attached utility room has a timber door, quarry tiled flooring, a wall light and a radiator. There is plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
The first floor, split-level landing has a Velux window allowing natural light to filter through onto the broad staircase below whilst a pendant light illuminates the area later in the day. Tongue and groove latch doors open to each of the rooms.
The spacious master bedroom has a pendant light, a radiator and a window to the front with beautiful rural views and surrounding meadows. A built-in double wardrobe provides clothes storage space and there is ample space for drawer banks and nightstands and there is also a television point.
Bedroom two is a further spacious double room with rear window overlooking the garden, a pendant light and radiator. This room also has space for storage furniture and a built-in double wardrobe.
Between the two bedrooms is the bathroom, partially tiled in shades of grey forming the backdrop to the contemporary three-piece white suite comprising panelled bath with mono-block tap, a corner glass cabinet with concertina door and shower wall boards, a wall mounted wash hand basin wi illuminated mirror over, and a close coupled W.c. A large Velux window is set into the panelled vaulted ceiling, there are wall mounted spot-lights and, to warm the towels, a ladder-style heated rail in on hand.
This absolutely delightful, white-rendered end-terrace cottage with black stone sills is set beyond a low brick-built retaining wall with an inset wrought iron gate which opens to a concrete path and has a broad patch to the front dotted with cottage and wild flower planting to complement their setting.
A side path from the front of the property opens at the side of sun room and continues to the rear, split level and west facing sun terrace. Ideal for al fresco dining, this paved area is enclosed by climber covered trellis and ivy laden walls to either side whilst a gated opening gives way to a concrete path alongside the lengthy lawn with privet hedge boundaries and an herbaceous border.
To the end of the lawn is a timber shed with integrated log store and beyond is a space for bin storage. With access from Back Drinkhouse Lane, the Tarmacadam driveway provides parking for two cars and leads to the detached, pebble-dashed single garage with up-and-over door, power and light, a side door and window, and having a workshop area to the end.
