As our aerial picture demonstrates, our listing has a substantial area of land in which there is fabulous commercial potential. Recently segregated to provide the 3 bedroom family home with a generous garden, recently furnished with an Indian stone patio and large pergola set before a sizeable lawn, the remainder is a yard with copious parking facilities. In the yard resides a home office, with a few more adjustments, this spacious building could be utilised as a one bedroom annex. All subject to the usual constraints, the land is such that it could accommodate another detached home or run a taxi firm, hair salon/beauticians, commercial motor trade etc. The business possibilities are endless and within close proximity to the main house, you can construct a comfortable work environment and allow family to spend more time together.
The house itself offers a great deal of internal space, extended to the rear, there is further potential to extend upwards to the first floor. The property currently offers 3 bedrooms, 2 double/king rooms and a single with bespoke storage ensuring fabulous use of the space. Added to this, the property has an attic room, currently used as a play room and occasional guest bedroom. Externally, the home office has been converted into a studio, with bedroom in place, there is plentiful scope to consider ensuite facilities and a kitchenette.
The area is surrounded by countryside and plentiful amenities, especially along Tong Street which includes a petrol garage, restaurants and convenience stores with a local Asda only 6 minutes from the property. Within walking distance of local schools, Shetcliffe Lane is also near garden centres and a golf club.
Key features With a beautifully presented home, extended to offer a growing family lots of space, the real key feature of this property is the amount of external land that comes with it. The external presentation to the immediate exterior is displayed very well. New fencing, identifying yard from gardens has been recently installed and with dusk to dawn lighting, the provisions to work from home are well catered for.
Indian Stone is placed to the front walled terraced garden and again to the rear patio. A hard standing driveway leads to the yard through wrought iron double gates. Subject to usual constraints, the yard could easily adopt another dwelling with the house retaining their current gardens with scope to build a detached garage in the grounds.
The main entrance to the property is very elegant, with stylish papered walls and solid oak flooring which continues to flow into the sitting room, the space available is immediately apparent as it stretches through to the dining kitchen.
The dining kitchen has been extended and includes storage facilities under the stairs and a cloakroom with utility fittings and further washroom with w.c and wash basin.

The sitting room is very handsome with glamour and quality furnishings which include an oak flooring and decorative tiled fireplace. The bay window draws in lots of natural light which is assisted through the property with cleverly chosen timber and glass doors to two elevations.
The three bedrooms have use of the large house bathroom which is installed with a free standing bath tub, corner shower unit, dual sinks in a lighted mirrored cabinet and close coupled toilet. Fully tiled in contrasting shades, the room is completed with a chrome towel ladder radiator.
With an attic conversion with structured staircase and Velux windows, the owners use this space as an occasional guest bedroom, games room or play room.
A home office within the yard, segregated into two sections offers great space to be used to the homeowners desire. An occasional bedroom, cinema room and games room, if washroom facilities and kitchenette were added, this could also be a one bedroom annex for multi generational living.
