DESCRIPTION

Western Terrace is a small terrace of cottages built at the turn of the last century, reached via a private pathway leading off Collins Road. The property is a well presented mid terraced residence which has been extended and thoughtfully improved by the current owners to create a home for modern family living yet retaining character features. On the ground floor there is a beautiful kitchen/dining room opening to a south-west facing decked terrace and garden. There is a sitting room with wood burning stove and also a practical utility room. On the first floor there are two bedrooms both with wonderful views, a family bathroom and additional loft room above.

The property is accessed to the rear via a private lane which leads to the entrance hall. This is a practical space with a quarry tiled floor and built in storage for shoes and coats. The entrance hallway leads into the characterful sitting room with oak flooring, wood burning stove with slate hearth and large sash window. Neatly tucked in a cupboard under the stairs is the television and other media equipment. The kitchen/dining room is to the front of the property and benefits from a wonderful oak framed extension with French doors opening to the south-west facing decked terrace. The kitchen has a range of floor mounted oak units beneath slate and oak worktops and tiled surrounds. There is an integrated electric oven and hob and a gas fired Rayburn stove whilst there is space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. Beautiful polished concrete flooring with underfloor heating extends from the kitchen to the dining area which is filled with light due to the large windows, French door and Velux above.
