Rare three-bed semi-detached home with a private rear garden and stunning views on a quiet road in Crookes.
When the current owners were looking for a property in Crookes, they were attracted by the private garden offered in a semi-detached compared to a typical terrace house. Duncan Road was always on their hit-list, as it’s no through road there is less traffic than in other areas. The house itself required a lot of modernisation but they could see the potential and couldn’t stop thinking about the incredible views from the back bedroom. Another small thing that they remembered was the character in the stained-glass window at the top of the stairs. Since buying the property, the owners have installed a new kitchen, bathroom, boiler, radiators and done a partial re-wire.
The location was perfect, with brilliant independent cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants at one end of the road and access to Bolehills at the other, this proved invaluable as their family grew. The neighbours and Crookes in general have a warm community feel. There is a street WhatsApp group to provide support and a street market held throughout the year.
Entering the home through the front door, straight ahead are stairs to the first floor, to the left is the living room. The living room has a bay window at the front and plenty of space for seating, in the corner is access to the dining kitchen. The kitchen has an incredible amount of storage space, with units on three walls, a large cupboard under the stairs and bespoke shelving within the chimney breast. The kitchen itself is a beautiful Shaker style with solid oak worktops, in terms of appliances, there is an electric oven/grill, gas hob, extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. There is an external door leading to the side of the property.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom one is at the front of the property, this is a good double with a bay window at the front. Next door is bedroom three that is currently used as a nursery. Bedroom two is at the back of the property, this is also a double bed, the owners use it as a home office as there is an incredible view from the window which could affect work productivity! The bathroom was carefully thought through and provides plenty of storage in a compact space. There is a P-shaped bath with shower above and a combination vanity unit with WC, washbasin and more storage above.
In front of the house is a hedge providing privacy then block paving that goes down the side of the property and into the rear garden. The rear garden has raised flowerbeds and an artificial lawn with more flowerbeds to the side. Perfect for kids and dogs, it’s fully enclosed and has no rights of way from neighbours.
The property tenure is leasehold, there is 710 years remaining on the lease and the ground rent is £3 a year.
