4 Housman Road is a light and bright versatile family home tucked away in this quiet location just a few minutes walk to Millfield School with a large garden to the front and rear that faces due south with a good size double garage.
As you enter the hallway through the generous sized porch you get a feeling of space and openness. The large well fitted kitchen/breakfast room has doors opening onto a good sized terrace and lovely quiet secluded garden. Just off the kitchen, is a study as well as the utility room and a further sitting room/childrens room (see note) which could make a separate dining room if required. The spacious bright sitting room has doors to the terrace and windows overlooking the front and rear gardens, there is also a downstairs cloakroom and further reception room/bedroom 5.
Upstairs is well laid out with four bedrooms, two with en suites and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has plenty of storage and the ensuite has both a bath and separate shower.
Arriving at 4 Housman Road you turn into a large driveway with a double garage at the end and lawn to the side, giving plenty of space for kicking a football. There is a side gate that leads to the private and secluded rear garden with its large terrace ideal for entertaining.
Note: Due to the very hot summer last year and the proximity of some overbearing trees there has been a degree of movement which is visible in the utility room and family room. The vendor has had the property inspected and has estimates for the work to rectify the issue, the price reflects this work and indeed offers an opportunity to purchase this substantial house in a sought after road at a favourable price.
