This mid-terrace cottage in the heart of the popular village of Mawdesley is ideally placed for accessing the local shops and schools. The modern kitchen and bathroom add a contemporary feel to this traditional home.
The conservatory provides a space for bringing the outside indoors, overlooking the extensive garden which also gives rural views to the rear, whilst the log burning stove in the lounge makes for cosy nights when the weather turns.
A rustic open porch with reclaimed slate roof shelters the timber front door with opaque glass insets which opens to the hallway. There is a practical laminate flooring, a pendant light and a staircase rising and turning to the first-floor landing.
A painted, panelled door opens to the welcoming lounge with recently fitted mock sash double-glazed window overlooking the front, recently fitted wool carpet and a central pendant light for evening time. The eye is immediately drawn to the charming brick ingle fireplace with York stone flagged hearth and housing a Firefox clean-burn log burning stove which not only warms the room but gives a welcoming aura. A central heating radiator is also on hand for chillier evenings and there is a television point alongside for cosy nights in.
A broad opening leads to the rustic style dining kitchen which is fitted with a range of hand painted, Shaker style cabinets and drawers in a muted shade with brushed steel handles and having a plate rack and free-standing larder cupboard. Oak worktops surround and incorporate a white enamel Butlers sink unit with spring loaded mixer tap over. Also inset is a five-burner gas hob whilst, close by, a Bosch eye-level oven, grill, combination oven/microwave and proving drawer provide additional cooking facilities. Integrated appliances include a fridge and freezer, automatic dishwasher and automatic washing machine. There is a very useful under stairs storage cupboard for essential household equipment, a double-glazed window to the rear, inset spotlights and a pendant light is suspended above the dining table space.
The laminate flooring continues beyond the French windows which open into the uPVC conservatory having power points and a radiator whilst further French windows open to the garden.
The landing has a pendant light and three painted, panelled original timber doors give way to the first-floor accommodation.
The master bedroom has a recently fitted mock sash double glazed window to the front, central pendant lighting for evenings and a radiator to warm the room. A range of mirror-fronted wardrobes line one wall, with one being a walk-in wardrobe, and there is ample space for drawer banks and night stands.
Bedroom two is a double room with a window overlooking the lovely rear garden and fields beyond, a central pendant light and radiator. A corner cupboard houses the Potterton gas central heating boiler and there is an access point to the part boarded and insulated loft.
The good-sized bathroom has an opaque window to the rear and is fully tiled in natural shades, forming the backdrop to the four-piece contemporary-style white suite comprising corner shower cubicle, vanity set wash hand basin with monobloc tap, deep bath tub with centralised tap and hand shower, and close coupled w.c. Added luxuries include an illuminated mirrored niche above the wash basin, recessed down-lights to the ceiling and a chrome ladder-style heated rail warms the towels.
The property is approached via flagged pathways to either side of the low fence bordered and pebbled frontage which provides parking for two cars. The rear garden can be accessed from the conservatory or via a side ginnel at the end of the terrace.
From the conservatory, steps descend to the paved courtyard seating area and leading to the semi-detached outbuilding which provides excellent storage for garden equipment and has power and light. A side picket gate gives right of way access to the ginnel and, beyond this, the laurel hedged professionally landscaped garden broadens and features a wide sleeper-edged and pebbled path having inlaid herbs which meanders through the lawn passing island borders brimming with cottage garden and shrub planting. As you move through the arbour, a further pebbled area widens to include raised vegetable beds and an array of fruit trees including apple and pear. At the far end of the garden is a further Indian stone patio and sun-trap decked area giving way to the recently refurbished summerhouse retreat which enjoys full afternoon sun and, alongside, is a bed of wild flowers and a variety of berry-fruit bushes.
