3 bed house for sale in BroadwayOIEO £550,000
Perfectly positioned in a leafy avenue of well-presented homes - just minutes from Central Park, The King’s School and the Regional College and only a short stroll away from the city centre and railway station - this unique 1957-designed three-bedroomed detached house is a much-loved family home, situated on an unusually large plot and featuring a contemporary open-plan kitchen-dining-living area, plus a further lounge, overlooking a well-kept south-facing garden.
With room to park four cars easily in the driveway, the front porch opens into a large ‘Christmas tree’ hall, with its parquet flooring stretching into the square, dual-aspect lounge beyond, where there is a ‘living flame’ gas fire within an attractive grey granite surround. A large picture window frames the wide rear garden.
The cloakroom to the side of the hall can house many ‘cloaks’ and has a white porcelain toilet and large sink - plus room for a shower, potentially.
But it is the kitchen that particularly shines, forming an open L-shape with the conservatory, wood flooring throughout, offering a large cooking, living and dining space from the front to the rear of the house and overlooking the garden - which is accessed through two sets of French doors. Multiple grey gloss cupboards have solid granite tops, as does the six-foot-long island, and there is a double oven with induction hob, a stainless steel extractor hood and one-and-a-half sink plus an integrated dishwasher and fridge. And there’s a pantry!
Upstairs, there are two very large double bedrooms and a further good-sized double bedroom, currently used as an office. The bathroom has the original cast iron white bath with shower over, white sink and floor-to-ceiling airing cupboard, with a separate toilet next to it. There is scope to easily extend at the side, over the garage, adding two further bedrooms ensuite, plus there is a tall loft space running the length and width of the house.
Wrapping around the well-insulated, pale brick building, the established rear garden of seasonal flora, mixed shrubs and trees, large lawn, two patios and a sunny decking area, also includes two sheds and a summerhouse, connected to electrics.The extra-long garage has plumbing for a washing machine and space for numerous white goods, and there is a car port to one side.
The passageway connecting the kitchen and the garage opens onto the front of the house, which is shielded from the road beyond by a rose (and clematis) arbour.
The house was built in the late 50s and became the vendor’s family home in 1970: two careful owners - so far!
