GUIDE PRICE £400,000 – £425,000.
NO ONWARD CHAIN AND VACANT POSSESSION.
A larger than average three double bedroom semi-detached house which spans over 1,260 sq ft, and is located at the end of a quiet cul de sac in the heart of Haywards Heath. The house comprises of; three generously sized double bedrooms, family bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, private off road parking for one vehicle, garage, and a good sized front and private rear garden.
The house is entered through the front door into a useful porch which is perfect for storing coats and shoes. There is an inner door which leads into the main hallway where stairs to the first floor can be found straight ahead. The is a large under stairs cupboard which could be converted into a small downstairs cloakroom. From the hallway is a door to the left into the living room, and a door straight ahead into the kitchen. The living room measures 15ft x 11ft and is large enough for a variety of living room furniture. It is a bright room which has a gas fireplace and glazed double sliding doors into the dining room. The dining room is large enough for a variety of dining room furniture, including a sideboard, and has sliding patio doors leading onto the rear patio.
Back into the hallway, and the other last room on this floor is the kitchen. This room has a large window overlooking the private rear garden, a window to the side, and a door accessing the rear patio. The kitchen comprises of; wall and base units, work surfaces, one and a half bowl sink and drainer, space for freestanding gas cooker, space for under counter fridge/freezer, and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The boiler for the house is also wall mounted in the kitchen.
Stairs from the hallway run to the first floor landing where the three double bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found.
The bedroom that would likely be used as Bedroom 1 measures 12ft x 11ft and faces the front of the house. It has fitted wardrobes which extend the entire width of the room providing a fantastic amount of storage. Bedroom 2 measures 12ft x 11ft and orientates to the rear with a built in wardrobe and a sink. Bedroom 3 is an excellent sized third bedroom which measures 15ft x 10ft and faces the front.
The bathroom has a frosted window which faces the rear, and comprises of a white wash hand basin and white panelled bath with shower above. There is a separate toilet next door to the bathroom, which, by removing a wall and blocking up a door could easily then become integrated into the bathroom as one.
The landing is a large and light space which has an airing cupboard and window which overlooks the rear garden. This window floods the landing with natural daylight as a result. This particular space not only has the window, but also a radiator, and is directly next door to Bedroom 2. This means that this void space on the landing could be relatively easily converted into an en-suite shower room to Bedroom 2 if desired. If this was to happen then this would most likely become the main bedroom as it faces the rear.
To the front there is a block paved driveway providing parking for one vehicle. The garage door is directly infront of the driveway. The front garden is walled and consists of flower and shrub borders.
The rear garden is a good size and is extremely private. It is mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, and hedging and mature trees which run along each boundary. There is an outside storage room providing useful storage for garden equipment. There is a good sized stone patio which is large enough for a selection of outside furniture, providing a wonderful space to relax and entertain in the warmer months. here is also a stone pathway which leads from the back garden down the side of the house with a wooden pedestrian gate leading onto the driveway at the front.
The garage can be accessed from the driveway and has an electronic automated up and over door. It has power and light, and could therefore provide use for further utilities such as a dryer or additional fridge/freezer. Because the kitchen is directly next to the rear of the garage, there is also potential to run the plumbing from the kitchen into this space thereby creating a utility room if desired (subject to planning). The access to this room could quite feasibly be from the kitchen itself, and could include a sink unit, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and wall and base units. There is also fantastic potential to convert the other half of the garage into another reception room (subject to planning) with access from the hallway at the bottom of the stairs.
The house, although needing some cosmetic improvements, offers the opportunity to become a fantastic family home in one of the most sought after roads in Haywards Heath. There is great potential to improve and enhance this house in order to make it a family home for the next 10 years and beyond.
