More than meets the eye

Constructed in the early 1900s to a classic design, this semi-detached house at Beaucroft Road in Waltham Chase has been extended to provide accommodation which better fulfils modern expectations. Located in the heart of this village, there are a few local amenities with easy access to Bishop’s Waltham about two miles to the north, and also Wickham to the south.

The house is well presented throughout with updated fully tiled bathrooms in neutral tones. The layout works well and provides comfortable relaxing spaces for the family together with a choice of dining areas including the conservatory at the rear which has French doors to the garden. The kitchen links with this room and one of the reception rooms which has space for formal dining as well as a sofa, leaving the second reception room at the front of the house as a separate sitting room. There is also a utility room and the main bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one with its own shower room, and a third single bedroom.

The garden at the rear is a good size and has been cleverly landscaped to provide defined seating areas and space for a barbecue leading onto a well stocked area around the lawn and shrub borders. A decked area at the rear provides alternative relaxing space to enjoy the garden. A gated pathway at the side links to the front of the house.

Ben Runciman at Byrne Runciman in Wickham says: “This attractive semi-detached Edwardian cottage is a real tardis, having been extended enormously by successive owners.”

The house is offered for sale with no forward chain, a price guide of £299,000 is quoted and a viewing appointment can be made by contacting Byrne Runciman on 01329 834579
