This delightful Victorian semi-detached house has been recently updated and brought back to life for contemporary living at it's very best, yet retains some character features. In this tree lined avenue surrounded by greenery and fresh air, it is incredibly well-connected for the city with excellent transport links by train, car and bus.
Approached via a landscaped front garden, a decorative portico shelters the front door and stepping inside the ground floor is lined with original wooden flooring underfoot and stairs leading to the first floor. There is plenty of under stair storage and a discreet W.C. The beautifully presented living room is flooded with natural light through the two sash windows and a log burner takes centre stage to warm the room as the weather cools (fun fact, the mantle piece is reclaimed from the original Brighton Pier).
Double doors lead through to the sociable dining room which offers the perfect blend of informal and formal dining either for the family or when entertaining friends. French doors open out to the Veranda in the landscaped garden, well designed for dining al-fresco with low maintenance to keep the garden looking fresh all year round. There is also side access to the front which is great for bikes or muddy paws!
Back inside, the stylish and modern kitchen gleams with gloss units and integrated appliances, making cooking easy and enjoyable.
Upstairs, there are two wonderful double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom which has a white three-piece suite and a freestanding walk-in rainfall shower, decorated in an aqua blue with misty blue tiles and a dark wooden vanity unit.
Woodlands Avenue is a quiet cul-de-sac with parking bays opposite the property and a friendly neighbourhood, filled with professionals and families. The proximity to local Ofsted schools, shops and country walks is excellent and we'd highly recommend a scrumptious roast at the Plough Pub opposite the beautiful, historic St. John's Church.
"We like the quiet location of our house, the friendly neighbourhood and parking outside our door. Ease of access to London, the town centre and as we enjoy travelling Gatwick airport being so close."
