SUBSTANTIAL AND DECEPTIVELY SPACIOUS four bedroomed detached family residence offering versatile and flexible accommodation with the facility for a self-contained annex to the rear, together with generous outside space.
Belgrave Road has long been regarded as one of the area's most popular addresses and is particularly favoured by families as it falls within catchment of excellent schooling, including Christleton High School. It also enjoys ease of access to all major transport links in and out of the city and a collection of local shopping facilities.
Green Oaks has benefited from modifications and extensions over its time and offers the facility for a self-contained extension to the rear of the property, which could well suit a growing family with older children or indeed older family members seeking independence within the family home.
The property, which oozes curb appeal with its Tudor style frontage, is approached via a private gated driveway with an accompanying lawned garden to the front. The driveway leads to the side of the property where there is a further parking area in front of a detached garage, which is accessed via a timber five bar gate. Access to the home is provided via a pillared covered porch, being tiled and with overhead lighting, and to the side is a timber pergola with climbers and an open archway to the side garden, which is laid to paving with stocked borders. This opens through to the rear garden, which is a notable feature, predominantly laid to lawn and with a network of paths around the garden itself. Behind the detached garage is an area ideal for a greenhouse with a seating area behind. The rear garden is well enclosed offering a good degree of privacy and features a collection of mature shrubs and trees, including fruit trees.
The home offers a scattering of original features and the accommodation comprises: Entrance hall with original wood block parquet flooring and spindled staircase off to the first floor accommodation, where there are three bedrooms, all double in size, with the master and guest bedrooms benefiting from built-in wardrobes. There is a bathroom with a white suite and a separate WC across the landing.
On the ground floor, to the main body of the home there are two reception rooms - a sitting room, being a light and airy space offering an abundance of light and with an ornate fireplace with gas fire, and a dining room which links through to the kitchen. The kitchen has fitted white gloss fronted units and door access into the rear porch, which is where the flexible nature of accommodation is found as there is a door providing external access leading to a self contained extension. The extension has a bedroom, a bathroom featuring a three piece white suite and a living room, which is currently used as a home office by our clients, being a pleasant room offering views of and access to the rear garden. Off this room is a utility room.
An internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the size of accommodation this attractive home has to offer. LOCATION

The property is situated on a generous plot and is approached via a private gated driveway which offers off-road parking for numerous vehicles. The driveway leads past the home itself to a further gated section accessed via a timber five bar gate leading to an opening which provides access to the detached garage and the rear garden.
To the front, there is a lawned garden with stocked borders enclosed by fencing and hedging and the driveway becomes a pathway running the perimeter of the home. To the front of the property there is a covered porch, being tiled and with overhead lighting, and to the side there is a timber arched pergola with climbers and an open arch to the side garden. To the side, there is a paved seating terrace which catches the afternoon and evening sun and opens through to the rear garden.
The rear garden is a notable feature of the home and although the home itself has benefited from a considerable extension to the rear it has not hindered the size of the rear garden one bit. It is predominantly laid to lawn and features concrete paths which link around the garden itself and behind the garage is a space ideal for a greenhouse with a seating area beyond. It is well enclosed by timber fencing and a good degree of privacy is enjoyed by a collection of mature shrubs and trees, including fruit trees.
