A surprisingly spacious 4 bedroomed cottage in the sought after area of Tidcombe and within walking distance of Blundell's School and the canal.
The first time on the market in over 35 years, 63 Tidcombe Lane has been subject to several improvements in recent months yet will be sold with vacant possession and with the finishing touches left to perfect. With the bulk of the hard work done, this is the perfect opportunity to finish the house to your own specification!
This lovely cottage is in the popular Tidcombe Lane area and as such, is conveniently situated for our lovely canal and within walking distance of the town and Blundell's School. Previously two cottages, dating back some 200 years in the oldest part, this is now a lovely, double fronted family house with the most incredible garden. I am sure it is going to be extremely popular!
Our vendor has replaced most of the kitchen, replaced windows and the electric heaters. The electrics were all upgraded earlier this year and it has been decorated. The new buyer will be able to finish the property to their own taste.
This property is deceptively spacious - I was quite amazed at the space on offer and the scale of the accommodation. The front door leads into a spacious hallway which could be used as a snug or study area. There is a vast storage cupboard and an exposed brick wall housing the central staircase.
To your right is the sitting room with a traditional woodburning stove set in a brick fireplace. This is a generous room and is presently open to the dining area at the rear, although this could easily be separated if you would prefer. A window and door lead out to the rear garden. The kitchen can be accessed from the dining room and from the hallway, which in my opinion makes the ground floor flow really nicely.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a great size and has been refitted with a range of cream modern, yet classic kitchen units topped with wooden worksurfaces and finished with sleek dove grey metro tiles. I like that the electric oven has been integrated into the chimney breast and that shelves have been added to the alcove. There is a window and door to the rear garden and space for your appliances, as well as ample room for a breakfast table and chairs.
Upstairs really did pleasantly surprise me with three good size double bedrooms and a large single. There is plenty of storage available too, with the three doubles all having built in wardrobes and an airing cupboard on the landing. One quirky feature is found off the master bedroom, where a door leads to a balcony above the staircase. The bathroom is found centrally to the rear. The loft is insulated, partially boarded and has a ladder - there is good head height in the roof space.
To the rear, the garden is a blank canvas. It is huge and a real feature of this lovely home. It is mainly laid to lawn but is somewhat unkempt and with a little tlc I feel this could be beautiful. It is nicely fenced to one side, with mature trees and shrubs on the other. I can visualise a large patio here, making it a super entertaining and family space, to make the most of this West facing suntrap. Our vendor has installed outside power points and lighting and there is access to the road via a right of way behind your neighbours.
In all I feel this will be a very popular property due to its size, the quirky features and that there is scope to finish the property to your own specification. Its proximity to Blundell's and the canal make this a lovely family home.
SERVICES: Mains electricity, water and drainage. No gas to property although there is mains gas in the road.
From the multi storey car park turn left on to the Great Western Way. Go straight across at the next two roundabouts and proceed through the Blundell's School campus. Turn right into Tidcombe Lane and proceed for about a quarter of a mile. You will see a terrace of cottages on the right with our for sale board outside No. 63
