An attractive, well presented town house in a small cul de sac by the canal at popular Chalford. This location is part of the good village community and allows for easy access to the local community run shop, along at Chalford High Street, with canal and riverside walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods and has been improved by the current owners, with spacious, adaptable accommodation. An entrance hall, cloakroom/W.c, useful utility room (originally part of the garage), reception room and double glazed conservatory are on the ground floor, with a kitchen/dining room, bathroom and further reception room on this level. The current owners have a study space at one end of this room, and prospective buyers may choose to use either this reception room or the ground floor room as a third bedroom, depending on their requirements. A staircase leads up again from this floor, with a study, double bedroom and principal bedroom found at the top of the house. The latter has an en suite shower room and some great fitted furniture, with specific storage for shoes and jewellery.
The interior is complemented by an integral bike store, parking and gardens. The store is at the front and was originally a garage, but a portion of this has been converted into the utility room. The parking is to the front of the house, for two cars, with a useful store area by the front door for recycling bins and the like. The garden is at the rear of the property. Steps lead up from the conservatory to a level paved area, with a couple more steps up past established bushes and a garden store to an enclosed sitting area. This space looks out onto the trees behind, making for a ‘green’ outlook, and has space for a corner sofa and a table. There is a gate at the top of the garden and this allows for access on to the canal and walks along the towpath.
