Truly unique, characterful, semi-detached home with off-street parking, fantastic garden and large open plan kitchen/living/dining room. Great property for first-time buyers or downsizers, this quiet property is just a short walk from Crookes shops.
Set down a driveway and back from the road, entrance to the property is through the front door and initially into the porch; this is where the recently installed Ideal boiler and electrical consumer unit are located.
From the porch is the fantastic open plan kitchen/living/dining room with a central staircase to the first floor. The kitchen itself is a modern Shaker style kitchen with plenty of units above and below the large worktop area. There is an integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric oven, five-burner gas hob with extractor above and sink/drainer in front of the window. The living/dining area has plenty of space for as much seating as you need with room for a large dining table and chairs. At the far side of the room are sliding doors that open out onto the patio and garden - a truly brilliant house to enjoy entertaining friends and family in the summer months.
On the first floor are the bedrooms and bathroom. Bedroom one is at the far end of the landing; this is a charming large double bedroom with a window at the front and Velux window in the roof allowing light to pour in. Two further Velux windows above the landing create a light and open feel. Bedroom two is a smaller double bedroom that is currently used as an office benefiting from a built-in storage cupboard above the stairs to the ground floor. The bathroom has been recently modernised and now compromises of a large walk-in shower, WC and large built-in storage unit that also holds the washbasin. The bathroom also houses the access hatch to the roof space which is insulated and partially boarded. On the first-floor landing there is also a storage cupboard which currently holds the hot water tank with storage space above.
Externally the property has parking for two cars at the front. There is also an outhouse that has power and water, currently it's used as a utility space with room for a washing machine, tumble dryer and additional freezer.
To the side of the property is the East-facing garden that has a large patio area, artificial lawn with surrounding flowerbeds and water feature. A second patio area by the pond and water feature has been placed to ensure it catches the setting sun.
WHAT THE VENDOR SAYS:
"We have loved our house on Cross Lane - being set back from the road means it's nice and quiet with the huge advantages of a double driveway and a good-sized garden which isn't too overlooked. It's a peaceful spot so close to the amenities of Crookes and a stone's throw from the countryside making it a brilliant location. The open plan downstairs is perfect for socialising and entertaining, especially when the weather allows us to open the patio door into the garden! With the outhouse converted for storage and utilities we think it's a pretty unique property for the area that gave us more than we could have hoped for in our first house."
The property tenure is leasehold, the lease has approximately 183 years remaining, the ground rent is £50/year.
