Upper Broadmoor Road is a quiet road easily accessed from the village with very little traffic. Lined with traditional character homes with Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian features, the area is a popular position for families being in catchment for neighbouring ‘Outstanding’ school, Edgbarrow.
As you pull up to number 36, you will note that there is off road parking as well as side access to the property. With a tidy frontage with some traditional planting you enter the house through a recessed brick porch through a hardwood door with stained glass features and into the downstairs hallway. A staircase to the first floor leads directly in front of you. Access to the living room and dining room is from the hallway with the front room currently used as a sitting room. This charming space with a central exposed brick chimney breast and original fireplace is a focal feature to the room and invites visitors into this welcoming and cosy space. The bay window offers plenty of natural light and is another feature to this bright and spacious room. With shelving and storage built alongside the chimney breast, it is a functional room that could be used for a formal sitting or dining room.
The adjoining reception room, currently used as a dining room, is accessed back through the hallway and opens out into the kitchen. With an aspect of open plan living, the dining room continues with the oak effect flooring from the hallway and offers yet more character with another pretty fireplace and backlit decorative shelving to either side. The downstairs toilet, situated under the staircase is a welcome addition to the amenities.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been fully modernised and is fitted to a high standard with Hotpoint range gas oven and integrated dishwasher and washing machine. Finished in a contemporary yet classic cream, there is ample storage with a breakfast island taking central position to offer alternative dining and entertaining. Wood style worktops complete a fresh but sympathetically traditional makeover to this lovely space.
A further reception room can be accessed from the kitchen and affords a very useful additional space which, opening out to the garden beyond, is a practical room for families. An extension to the existing property, this room benefits from a lot of good light and, to the rear of the house, offers a peaceful sanctuary. With the doors open to the outside, it is easy to imagine being ensconced here come rain or shine.
The garden is a real gem and extends to over 140’, backing onto idyllic woodland that frames the view to remind you that you are in a quiet rural setting; despite being so close to the village. There is a thoughtful hand at work in the design of the garden space with newly laid patio for outdoor dining and entertaining. Steps lead to a further landscaped area with enclosed borders via railway sleepers with a lawned area beyond leading to a storage shed at the rear of the garden, it is truly a tranquil space with the woodland beyond.
Returning indoors and back to the entrance hallway, the first floor has three good sized double bedrooms and recently renovated family bathroom. Recently four bedrooms, the current owners have combined bedrooms 2 and 4 to return the house to its original configuration. This renovation has restored an excellent guest bedroom with feature fireplace and built in wardrobes and has improved an already beautiful home. The master bedroom is situated at the back of the property with built in wardrobes, eaves storage and benefits from ensuite shower room.
With good access to the Village High Street, Edgbarrow School and sports centre, and the Wildmoor Nature Reserve the property is in a lovely position. Overall, this home offers useful living and well sized living accommodation, rich with character but garnished with the conveniences of contemporary living.
