Fantastic 3/4 bedroom detached house overlooking Soundwell playing fields that has been beautifully restored by the current owners. Previously two properties there are lots of benefits including a 9m long garage, off street parking and a good sized garden. The property has plenty of character with stained and leaded double doors opening into the property. The entrance hall is particularly spacious with stripped wooden flooring and downstairs toilet. Set off the hallway at the front of the property is a lovely sitting room with wood burning stove while at the rear of the property is a good sized kitchen, a family room which also had a wood burning stove in and leads into a bright and airy dining room with vaulted ceiling and double doors opening onto the rear garden. Between the sitting room and family room is a very useful storeroom. At the rear of the property is a good sized garden which is mostly lawn with a raised patio area and built in barbecue. At the back of the garden is a wooden greenhouse and storage shed. Alongside the house is the garage which has power and light as well as an electric garage door and is a great size and could be used daily to park a car as well as workshop and storage space. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, the main with en-suite shower room and a single bedroom/study. The main bathroom has a walk in shower as well as a freestanding bath. There is further potential to convert the loft space into useable rooms subject to the necessary consents. This is a wonderful family home that has been meticulously and sympathetically restored.

Our Seller Says
We loved this house from the moment we entered into the spacious entrance hall despite the fact that we knew it would need some major renovations. We have enjoyed overlooking the playing fields and being able to have a driveway to park your cars returning home after work. Our home has been great for raising a family, enjoying entertaining outside in the summer around the BBQ and lovely patio and inside in the winter with the cosy wood burners. The large kitchen has been a bonus for all the family and preparing for guests. The large garage has been great for servicing the cars and being able to include the laundry. The stone shed has been invaluable to store all the garden equipment and camping gear. This home has been well loved and now that our family is grown up and it’s time sadly for us to move on.
