About this property
DESCRIPTION No. 40 Thunder Lane comes to the market for the first time in nearly 40 years and offers well arranged accommodation on two floors with entrance porch, entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, rear lobby, shower room, family/garden room, conservatory, dining room and sitting room on the ground floor, and a landing, four bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor.
The property dates back to the 1920's and has an original feature open fireplace in the dining room and feature glass gas lamp in Bedroom 2.
The house was extended in the 1930's before the Second World War, then later on in 1989 an important architect designed extension improved the property a great deal. The layout of the accommodation provides lots of flexibility, particularly on the ground floor, and the rooms work extremely well.
The house has an open plan feel with the entrance hall leading round through the dining room and sitting room to the conservatory to the right and back to the family/garden room with the kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and shower room to the left, all easily accessed. The family/garden room has a vaulted ceiling with beams and two Velux roof lights, giving a light and airy feel, and there is a recessed multifuel stove in the sitting room. The kitchen has a recently installed built-in Smeg dishwasher, a fitted Smeg cooker with a gas hob and electric oven and an externally vented extractor fan. There is a large freestanding Welsh dresser in the breakfast room alcove which matches the kitchen units and this could be available, subject to separate negotiation. The bedrooms are all of a good size, as is the family bathroom.
Outside, the grounds are a major feature of the property. There is a modest front garden with a path to the front door and a full sized double garage is to the side of the property, providing space for two cars and a hardstanding area. The rear garden is a good size and offers some privacy. It is mainly laid to lawn with flower borders and a patio area around the conservatory and features an impressive 90 year old monkey puzzle tree. The property includes a good size wooden garden shed, an Alton cedar octagonal greenhouse, a concrete coal bunker and a disused water pump which originally provided water to the property.
The property has been well maintained by the present owner, is in good decorative order throughout, is ready for immediate occupation and benefits from gas central heating.
