Main Description

You are in for a treat with this attractive barn conversion; not only does it surprise you with its internal living space, but being set just on the outskirts of Mollington village the location allows for excellent access to major place of interest, whilst still remaining close to local amenities in the nearby suburb of Upton. The property comes double glazed and with mains gas; also benefitting from a recently replaced boiler. The hallway has tiled flooring, with doors leading off into the main living areas along with the WC. The lounge is more than just spacious in size; it has eye catching details such as the original beamed ceiling which draw your attention, whilst a chimney breast provides an option for a wood burning stove. There is also a door with attached window to the rear of the room leading out onto the rear garden. The dining room also enjoys a door to the rear garden, whilst further internal doors lead to the study/bedroom 4, integral garage and kitchen. The study/bedroom four gives this home an added amount of flexibility, whilst the kitchen, which is often the heart of most homes, comes with brand new units incorporating ample integral appliances and a breakfast bar seating area. It really is a fabulous social place to be. Turning to the first floor, the master bedroom benefits from a modern en suite shower room, whilst the remaining double bedrooms are serviced by a well-equipped bathroom. A note to add is the loft; this has been fully boarded with engineered oak flooring, has lighting and power, and could be converted to a useable space subject to the relevant permissions. Outside the front offers an open aspect, with driveway and integral single garage, while the rear garden is just simply delightful. The South facing aspect ensures sun throughout the day and the lawned garden comes with a private outlook, well-stocked planted borders and a large patio seating area. A barn conversion that is not just full of character but offers you a homely feel as well. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
