Little things catch your eye and fuel your imagination, that can be one of the exciting things about life. When you are considering a new home those 'sparks' can be the most exciting part of finding where you will next lay down roots.
This is one of those homes that seems very easy to understand, it ticks lots of boxes, a larger garden than you might expect to find, a kitchen/dining room that makes life more practical and more social, three good bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom that houses a bath and a separate shower.
For us, what caught our imagination here are the ideas our clients have had already. Little touches like replacing light switches with retro style lookalikes of the old bakelite switches, keeping the doors with their original furniture and turning the understairs cupboard, accessed within the kitchen, into a really useful utility cupboard. Beyond all this there is a sense of potential here.
You may want to explore the possibility of extending, if planning permission is granted, well the resulting extension could be wonderful and with the size of garden you have here, you need never worry about making the house too big for the ground it sits on.
The garden is a huge plus for us. Straight away we'd look at putting French doors into the dining area, imagine throwing them open on a warm afternoon and stepping out onto the lovely patio and deck, it's a brilliant space for entertaining and the kids can still play in the main part of the garden without disruption.
Just around the corner is a small stretch of woodland and a few minutes’ walk brings you to Sidley recreation park, by Canada Way. Here you'll find a children's playground, football pitch and a fantastic BMX Track, it is a brilliant space to take the kids for a Saturday or Sunday stroll.
Of course, with the size of garden you have at the house, you may not feel the need to head off somewhere else.
