Whether you want a home ready to move into, or a home which offers redevelopment or extension potential; this tradition family home with contemporary features ticks all the boxes!

Alloway House occupies a very large plot and sits comfortably and perfectly towards the front and middle of the plot. The home boasts over 2,800 square foot of living space, excluding the garage and is set back from the road behind a mature frontage offering a lawn area and mature borders plus the front driveway area provides a turning point and extends down the side of the building. The position of the home within the plot means there is fantastic space at both sides of the property to explore the potential of extending. One side has the driveway leading down the side of the house from the front to the detached garage and subject to the size of cars, we believe you could park at least 10 cars on the driveway. At the other side of the home there is further garden space with mature borders and paving, Both sides offer the obvious space (subject to planning permission) to extend the home.

At the rear of the property there is a garden which must be seen to be appreciated! With patio areas abutting the home large expanses of lawn lead to the bottom of the garden where a charming orchard area can be found. The orchard has a selection of fruit trees and is separated from the main garden by a hawthorn hedge with access points at both sides. The main areas of the garden has mature borders with a wide variety of shrubs and trees plus a further sitting areas. This garden really is a "must view" as our photos and this description will not do it justice. It is worth noting at this point the 8.84m x 3.48m (29ft x 11ft5) detached garage, built with cavity walls and mains water, drainage and electricity. This outbuilding, currently used as a workshop, offers garaging for two cars or could be converted to a:home office/a gym leisure area/hobby room" or 'Granny Annex". The garage can be accessed via the front garage door or side pedestrian door.

Our floor plans and photographs will go some way to helping you understand this home, however we strongly advise you view the property to get a true feel of the space, shape and warm homely feel on offer.

In brief the accommodation comprises:

Before entering the main home there is a spacious porch which leads to the front door which continues through to the spacious reception hall with original features picture rails/plate racks, wood panel stair casing with spindle balustrade quarter turn staircase leading to the first floor. Beautiful lead glazed windows face the front aspect including the door light allowing natural light to enter the hallway and bounce off the exposed, stripped wood floorboards. Original panel doors lead to all of the ground floor rooms except for the conservatory which is accessed via the kitchen, Off the entrance hall you have a good sized shower room which has a walk in wet area shower section, wash hand basin, low level WC and the added bonus of a Sauna Room (see photo)! Chrome fittings including a chrome towel ladder style radiator completes the look.

This is a great home for a family wanting to spread out and enjoy their own space as all the main reception rooms are separate! The main lounge is positioned to the rear of the accommodation with box bay window seating fitted allowing you an extra place to relax and enjoy views of the beautiful parkland style plot. The lounge has stripped exposed wooden floors , a neutral decor theme which flows on throughout the home and a multi fuel burner set within the recessed fireplace. The dining room has a bay window to the front aspect, a feature fireplace to one wall with ornate wood surround, plus stripped floors. The third reception room is used as a TV/Sitting room and faces the front aspect with feature fireplace multi fuel burner and dual aspect views.

The spacious kitchen has white shaker design base and eye level units plus contrasting coloured bevel edge granite work tops, it has a traditional feel which complements the home perfectly. There are fitted appliances and a double width fridge recess area. The kitchen has an original built in cupboard to the side of the chimney breast and windows and a door giving access into the conservatory. The conservatory is a great size addition to the property with two areas to enjoy. One section is dedicated to sitting and relaxing whilst there is also a dining/breakfast area with ample space for a table as shown on our photographs. The conservatory area could be adapted to create an open living / kitchen /dining space.

Upstairs the landing provides access to all of the rooms. There are 5 bedrooms in total with 4 large double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The fifth bedroom could potentially be used as an en suite to the front double bedroom due to its positioning. It could also be changed to provide a galleried landing and staircase access to open up the current attic space as a master bedroom suite. 3 of the bedrooms face the front aspect and 2 overlook the impressive rear garden. There are vanity wash hand basins in 2 of the 5 bedrooms. The family bathroom has been remodelled and (see photo) has a contemporary suite with double width walk in shower area, panel front bath and wash hand basin. The contemporary design is complemented by stylish tiling to the walls and chrome fittings. Adjacent to the shower room there is separate WC with low level WC and wash hand basin. Matching chrome fittings and stylish tiling complement the look of this room.

The home is warmed by gas central heating and has lots of character features throughout including the carefully restored servants bells and flagged bell box. It is worth wandering down the garden to the orchard to see mistletoe growing on two of the apple trees!
