LeGrys is pleased to bring to the market this charming three bedroom late Victorian property in Edward Street, Southborough. The property requires some light updating however offers ample amounts of space across four floors along with a generous sized rear garden. All in all this provides a great opportunity for any growing family looking to put their own stamp on their future family home.
Set behind a low fence sits this attractive, red bricked family home. Access via a pathway leads you to the entrance door at the side of the house. Once inside, to your left hand side is the good sized living room with tall window letting in lots of light, open chimney breast feature and fitted cupboard to the left of the chimney breast housing the electric meter. Other features to note are the attractive picture rails and tall skirting boards.
Behind the living room towards the back of the house is the spacious and really bright dining room which opens into the kitchen. There is a window overlooking the garden and an attractive fireplace feature which could easily house a log burning stove.
From a door in the dining room stairs lead you down to the cellar which has a small light well and is currently being used as a store room, but could easily lend itself as a fully functional space depending on one’s needs. The cellar has full electrics along with a fitted electric heater and could make an ideal man cave or cinema room!
To the rear of the first floor you will find the dual aspect kitchen with a window to the side and to the rear, overlooking the attractive garden. The kitchen offers an array of light wood units at floor and wall level along with plenty of work surfaces and a pretty tiled surround. The kitchen provides space for a tall fridge/freezer, oven and washing machine. A door from the side of the kitchen takes you to the garden.
Climbing the first set of stairs you find the first floor where the first two bedrooms and family bathroom can be found.
At the front of the first floor you will find bedroom three which is a good sized small double or large single, again with space for furniture/wardrobes as well.
Immediatley to your right at the top of the stairs you find the master bedroom which is a great size with ample amounts of space for furniture/wardrobes and a large cupboard under the stairs offering lots of storage. A good sized window gives views to the garden and draws in lots of light whilst a door to the left takes you to the bathroom.
The family bathroom is clean and tidy with a bath, pedestal wash basin and WC. A part glazed window makes it a bright room and a large cupboard is useful storage for towels, linen etc.
Climbing a final set of stairs takes you to the second floor where you will find bedroom two. Converted approx. 12 years ago this is a good sized double room with velux windows and handy eaves storage. For those looking to add space there is plenty of scope for further extension to create a master suite (subject to the usual consents).

Furthermore there are an abundance of mature shrubs and bushes creating greenery and privacy. For the green fingered there is an array of attractive raised flower beds. A side gate takes you to the front of the house via a private pathway.
