Stratton and King are delighted to be marketing this wonderful two double bedroom house which is situated within the grounds of Folly Mill Lodge. This fantastic home offers deceptively spacious accommodation together with an allocated parking space which is adjacent to the property, a private rear garden and two bathrooms. The spacious lounge enjoys access to the rear garden and offers two additional side windows thus allowing lots of light in to this room. The kitchen offers a range of eye and base level units with working surfaces over. There is a waist height oven, a 4 ring electric hob with extractor hood over, space and plumbing for a washing machine and a fridge. Perfectly complementing the ground floor accommodation is a useful cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and an under-stairs storage cupboard. Upstairs, the property offers a master bedroom which enjoys a built in wardrobe and its own ensuite shower room, a guest bedroom which overlooks the rear garden and a bathroom which has a bath with shower over, a WC and a wash hand basin. Externally, the property benefits from a good size, low maintenance, rear garden and an allocated parking space.
