The Accommodation

118 Dixon Drive is a relative new build being constructed in the 1980’s of brick under a tiled roof and benefits from mains gas central heating and double glazing throughout. The property was acquired by the vendor when it was built and was promptly extended circa 1990 creating the kitchen and breakfast room. Despite the substantial floor area, there is no doubt the property would benefit from a scheme of modernisation or remodelling to cater for modern day living ideal for those with a growing family or indeed potential downsizers who wish to retain the scale of a larger country home without immediate major maintenance. Despite the foregoing, the property has 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 receptions arranged over approximately 2163 sq.ft. of living accommodation.

The front door opens into a staircase hall off which is a cloak room and links directly to the principal reception rooms. The sitting room runs the full length of the property giving a pleasant front and rear aspect over both lawns. The room is large enough to be adapted if necessary but currently enjoys a cosy and warm ambience with an ornate timber fireplace with marble inlay and gas fire. Adjacent is the study which could be used for a variety of purposes such as 2nd sitting room or children’s playroom although useful in its current form with home working being a necessity for many people. Beyond is the dining room with a glazed sliding door to the garden and access into the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with wall and base units under worksurfaces incorporating a full range of appliances to include Bosch 4 ring gas hob with Hotpoint extractor over, Bosch oven and separate single grill oven, Panasonic microwave and stainless-steel sink unit with drainer. The kitchen is complimented by a good-sized utility room which houses the Worcester gas fired boiler (fitted in 2013) off which is the double garage with electric up and over door and workshop space.

To the first floor is a spacious master bedroom with incorporating a full bank of bespoke wardrobes and ensuite shower room with corner shower, low flush WC and sink unit. At the adjacent side of the property is bedroom 2 which is also an excellent size with a full range of fitted wardrobes. There are a further two double bedrooms and a family shower room with part tiled walls, sink vanity unit and separate shower. In addition to the living accommodation there is useful loft storage accessed through a hatch on the landing via a drop down ladder.

118 is comfortable set back from Dixon Drive and is predominantly laid to lawn with perennial shrubbery. To the front of the property is a tarmac parking area flanked by lawn a side path for pedestrian access with a wider fenced route on the adjacent side large enough for a vehicle. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established cottage style beds and patio running the full length of property. The borders include a variety of flowering trees and shrubs such as Peonies, Lilac and Rhododendron all being encompassed by a mature hedge and part brick wall.
