Accommodation

Annsbrae Court terrace is set back from the main road behind a large well-stocked flower bed, a shared footpath along the front of the terrace leading to No.2 which has a small paved garden area to the front. The front door opens to a hall laid with a tiled flooring, a door to the right opening to the living room whilst ahead the flooring extends into a useful utility / store with worktop with space below for a washing machine / fridge etc., these appliances being available by separate negotiation. The space also houses the electric meters etc. On the left is the carpeted stair to the first floor which has a built-in cupboard below housing the ‘Kingspan Ultrasteel’ hot water tank, the stair having a very contemporary bannister with wooden handrail and glazed side panel.

The living room is an attractive carpeted room, the large south-facing window to the front of the house which has a fitted blind, flooding the room with light and looking out over the garden. A cast iron stove set on a slate hearth provides a cosy alternative heat source although there is an air source heat pump unit. To the left of the fireplace is a shelved recess with a cupboard space below. Recessed ceiling spotlighting.

A door to the rear of the living room opens to the bright kitchen / diner, like the living room decorated in a light contemporary style with a feature painted wall to the dining area where there is plenty of space for a table & chairs and a high level cupboard unit over with integral spotlighting. Wood effect vinyl is laid to the floor and again artificial light is provided by recessed ceiling spotlighting supplemented by additional worktop lights. The kitchen which benefits from electric underfloor heating, has been re-fitted in recent years with white doored units set off by woodblock effect worktops and stylish white ‘brick’ tiled splashbacks, the units including an inset 1½ bowl sink plus an integral electric hob and double oven with concealed cooker hood over with wine racks to either side. The floor units either side of the oven each have a handy pull-out larder unit and corner carousel. The fridge / freezer and washing machine are also available by separate negotiation. Two windows both
with blinds look out over the back garden.

Upstairs is a carpeted landing again lit by recessed ceiling spotlighting, doors leading to two good-sized carpeted double bedrooms and a modern bathroom. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to storage space in the loft and there is a second air source heat pump unit.

The main bedroom which is situated to the front of the house, enjoys a bright southerly aspect and benefits from plenty of clothes space provided by a large built-in wardrobe which spans the full width of one wall and has sliding doors, fitted shelf and hanging space, additional storage being provided by a further cupboard over the stairs. Blind at the window. The second bedroom, also a double, is situated to the rear.

The modern bathroom has also been attractively re-fitted in recent years, the walls being mostly tiled again with contemporary style ‘brick’ tiling around the bath / shower tub and to the lower half of the walls elsewhere, the bath having a ‘rainfall’ shower and separate hand held fitting. The wash hand basin and WC are set in a fitted cupboard / vanity unit which provides useful shelf and storage space for toiletries etc. and has a matching wall unit over.
