Full Description

INTEGRAL GARAGE PROVIDING OFF-ROAD PARKING ** DETACHED HOME ** IN NEED OF MODERNISATION THROUGHOUT **

Welcome to Chesterfield Road…

Completely unique, this stand-alone link-detached property is the only one of it’s kind in the surrounding roads… and presents the opportunity to have a garage/car-port providing the luxury of off-road parking. This is the first time this property has been offered for sale in over 60 years!

Entering through the sliding patio door, you arrive in the entrance porch which has a wooden front door, providing internal access to the home. Once through this door you are in the entrance hallway which has stairs to the first floor and doors to the garage and kitchen. The garage is an integral part of the home but provides a great opportunity for off-road parking. In our opinion a new purchaser may turn this space into a car-port from the front to maintain a parking space and then potentially use some of the space as internal living space.

The rest of the ground floor has a galley kitchen, which is the length of the property and a lounge diner with small sun room extension, with patio doors on to the garden. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of high-gloss wall and base units with space and plumbing for free-standing appliances. The room is finished with tiling and a double glazed window to the rear. There is also a door to the rear lobby, which has a boiler cupboard (the central heating boiler has been replaced within recent years and service records up-kept) and also access to the ground floor cloakroom. This space at the rear could easily be converted to a handy utility room and cloakroom, or there’s even room to add a shower room here. There is also a door to the garden.

The lounge-diner is fitted with power sockets, TV points and sliding patio doors to the garden. Subject to planning permission and building regulations, the entire ground floor could be opened up to create a large, modern, open-plan kitchen diner living space.

On the first floor, there are three good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bathroom has been converted to a tiled shower room with large cubicle, low-level flush WC and Vanity sink with storage. Previously there was a bath fitted, which could be reinstated if you would prefer. The Master Bedroom occupies the front of the home and is a large room with double glazed window and plenty of built in storage, providing floor-to-ceiling storage. Bedroom two also has a large range of fitted wardrobes.

Externally the property benefits from a wall-enclosed rear garden, which has a side-gate providing pedestrian access from the front of the home to the rear. The garden has been laid with an artificial-turf covering.

To the front, there is a forecourt with iron gate for pedestrian access and also double iron gates with a dropper kerb, providing off-road parking.

Viewings available 7 days a week with pre-booking. The property is offered with no forward chain.

Why we love Baffins…

At the very top of Chesterfield Road, this home is just seconds away from the large range of local amenities found on the high-street on Tangier Road. The many shops and businesses include a post office within the Co-op store, newsagents, butchers, a greengrocer, a pharmacist, numerous take-aways, and ‘The Baffins’ pub. Baffins is best known for the gorgeous pond which is a habitat for ducks, geese, swans and other wild fowl. It is managed as a wildlife refuge and is popular with people of all ages. In 2014 Baffins Pond again received a Green Flag award. There is also a play area at Baffins Pond with equipment for children of all ages as well as a ball-court with basketball and 5-a-side goals.
