4 Moor View is a three bedroom cottage set in the heart of the village of Bowes having an enclosed garden to the rear. No onward chain.
The property comprises a solid stone built double fronted cottage which has a good amount of space and would be ideally suited to a variety of buyers, i.e. first time, investors, holiday let market, families or retirement.
The main entrance opens into a practical vestibule which has a grey tiled floor and space for hanging coats. From here a door opens into an open plan living and dining room, which is of good proportions and has very clear zones. This space is flexible and would work equally well to provide a study area if required. A stone built fireplace houses an open fire, while two windows face South meaning the living space of the cottage benefits from a light and airy aspect and the warmth of the sun throughout the day. There is a shelved alcove which is a pleasant and useful feature, while matching bespoke Venetian blinds are installed which would be included within the sale if required.
To the rear of the property is the good sized kitchen and breakfasting room. This is a spacious room which not only has a full range of solid fronted base and wall mounted storage units topped with contrasting worktops but also a full height pantry cupboard and access to a large under stairs store cupboard. The kitchen also has space for free standing appliances. A tiled floor matching the entrance vestibule leads through a stable door into a good sized room currently used as a utility room. It has a further range of kitchen units complete with a full height cupboard to store items such as ironing boards etc. In this room a large window looks out over the garden and beyond over farmland and there is an extra deep stainless steel sink. This room is flexible in that it could be utilised a separate dining room, garden room, playroom or study subject to some slight alterations and the necessary consents. A stable door provides access to the rear garden from this room.
Off the kitchen stairs rise to first floor. The landing houses a large conveniently located airing cupboard which is shelved for linen.
The master bedroom lies to the front of the property and is a large square room having the benefit of the southerly aspect and views over the village. The second room also positioned to the front of the property would house a double bed with well thought out placement of furniture and is of good proportions. The third bedroom enjoys views out to the rear of the property and has a spacious fitted wardrobe having hanging space and shelving.
The bathroom has been recently refitted in neutral pale grey and white tones and comprises a P shaped double ended bath with electric shower and glass screen over. There is a low level WC and wash hand basin sat upon a matching vanity unity. The room has been finished in low maintenance shower boarding and the space is bright and airy courtesy of the recessed spotlighting.
To the front a neat forecourt garden sets the property slightly back off the road whilst to the rear is a pleasant enclosed, walled garden. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with shrub borders. It is a good size, sheltered and enjoys the open aspect to the rear. A lean to timber shed is shelved and houses the large coal bunker. Motion sensor outside lighting lights the whole garden and there are external power points and water tap.
