Overview

Spacious three bedroom property conveniently situated close to the Anderson High School, Clickimin Leisure Centre, Co-op and Toll Clock.

The accommodation in this extended semi-detached property has recently been freshly decorated in a neutral colour throughout resulting in a light and airy feel to the interior. The ground floor comprises a generously proportioned living room with large window to the street, a substantial kitchen / dining room with plenty of space for a table & chairs, island unit and appliances included, plus a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. Upstairs are three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a handy separate WC. There is also a large, easily accessible, floored and lined attic room providing extensive storage or hobby space.

The property sits in a low maintenance site with off-street parking for three cars, a west-facing patio area plus a 5.75m x 5.1m detached garage / workshop.

Great family home with the convenience of amenities close by.

Accommodation

A covered sheltered porch area provides the entrance to the property, the double glazed front door opening to a carpeted ‘v’-lined hallway with large entrance floor mat, built-in cupboard housing the meters etc., additional cupboard space under the stairs, and coat hooks. A glazed door to the left opens to the living room, a second door opens to the family bathroom and a carpeted stair leads to the first floor.

The carpeted living room is a generously proportioned, particularly bright room thanks to its large triple window which almost spans the full width of the front wall, with a further side window into the covered porch area. The room is attractively finished with pine skirtings and cornice tying in with the pine mantelpiece around a tiled fireplace with electric flame effect effect fire which is included in the sale although there is also a storage heater. Lighting is provided by a centre light fitting and matching wall light, plus recessed ceiling spotlights by the window.

At the rear of the room an archway framed with pine leads through to the very spacious kitchen / dining room, again a bright space with windows to the side and rear plus a glazed back door. There is ample space for a table & chairs and plenty of fitted floor and wall units including a concealed integral larder fridge, 1½ bowl sink and corner carousel, plus an additional island unit which provides extra drawer and shelf space and has an inset tiled pot stand and handy power socket for hand held kitchen appliances. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine both appliances being included in the sale along with the electric range cooker which has a tiled splash back and cooker hood over. A matching end unit neatly hides the ‘Megaflo’ hot water tank. Plenty of artificial lighting is provided by track spotlighting and worktop lights. Vinyl flooring is laid throughout and there is a storage heater.

Back off the hall the spacious family bathroom comprises a corner bath, wet-wall lined shower enclosure, WC and bidet plus a vanity wash hand basin with fitted cupboard space for toiletries below and wall mirror with integral spotlighting and shaver point over. The floor is tiled and there is a heated towel rail.

The carpeted stair which is lit by a side window at the top, leads up to a carpeted landing with doors to three double bedrooms, all carpeted, a handy separate toilet with white WC & wash hand basin plus a useful shelved cupboard for linens, etc. The first bedroom is a light and airy room enjoying a westerly aspect with two large windows to the rear of the house, and a built-in wardrobe. Bedrooms 2 & 3 both face the front of the house and both benefit from plenty of built-in clothes space, bedroom 3 also having a shelved recess.

A steep removable ladder stair from the hall provides easy access to the substantial loft space which is floored and lined throughout and has a floor-to-ceiling height of approximately 2.1m (6’10”), the initial space having access to floored storage space in the eaves to either side, and a door to a storeroom, again floored and lined, which provides masses of easily accessible storage space or could be used for as a hobby space. It has a Velux window, power & lighting, and a storage heater.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.

Again thank you for your assistance so far, I couldn’t have asked for better giving the country wide situation so I’m very grateful for works done so far and the speed at which it has happened.
