No Chain! Oozing with charm, character and quirkiness is this beautiful 2/3 bedroom Period Victorian cottage, arranged over three floors (889 sq ft). Desirably nestled down a cul de sac, just 2 minutes walk from the heart of St Margarets village and train station. The property is within the catchment area of several highly regarded state schools.
The entrance door opens to a delightful double length sitting and dining room with two attractive fireplaces, a high decorative ceiling, and special glazed uPVC windows. Original wood flooring extends through the ground floor to the kitchen and tucked behind a featured stairwell is a downstairs toilet. The smart, recently installed interior designed kitchen is perfect for those budding chefs.
There is also potential for a side extension off the kitchen (STPP). From the reception room you access a private courtyard garden with a modern garden shed for storage, which benefits from an electric point, perfect for a tumble dryer.
A beautiful spiral staircase leads you from the ground floor right through to the converted loft on the 2nd floor. On the first floor, located at the front, is the principal bedroom which offers double glazed twin windows and an original cast iron fireplace. This bedroom can also be successfully split, as proven by other similar houses on the street to offer an additional bedroom or bathroom, as it is a good-sized room. The second bedroom, located to the rear, leads to a modern en-suite shower room with a wc and underfloor heating.
On the second floor the loft has been developed, currently arranged into two spaces: one as a bathroom with a beautiful Victorian styled freestanding bath and a mezzanine-style space that can accommodate either a desk, sofa bed or maybe just a space to chill out and read your favourite book!
Resident parking permits can be obtained for on-street parking which operates week days only.
St. Margarets is a charming, vibrant village with a mainline station to Waterloo and two main shopping parades located along Crown Road and St. Margarets Road, where an extensive selection of cafes, boutiques, restaurants and pubs can be found.
