A well-constructed and semi-detached property, presented in good, clean condition, with secluded garden, attached garage and potential to extend, situated in a popular residential area in Paddock Wood, perfect for commuters and families.
This attractive property is situated just a few minutes’ walk from Paddock Wood town centre in a quiet residential development, built in the 1980s. Ballard Way is locally regarded as a premium road and this house has been well cared for by the current owner, and accordingly is presented in excellent condition throughout. There is parking on the driveway to the front of the property, and a further paved area leads to the front door and entrance hallway, which in turn has stairs up to the first floor and a door to the sitting room. This light and bright room provides access to the open plan kitchen / diner, where there are large patio sliding doors giving access to the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units in cream shaker style, with laminate worktops, integrated oven hob and cooker hood and stand-alone washing and dishwasher. This room also has a window to the rear overlooking the garden. Stairs up from the hall lead to the property’s 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms has fitted wardrobes and there is access to the loft from the landing.
One of the things that we love about the house is the options that it presents. Having been well cared for by the current owners, you could move in and relax and enjoy the space or the new owners could embark on a more extensive refurbishment and extension programme. There is certainly the potential, subject to necessary consents, to extend into the garage and maybe above, creating a larger open plan kitchen / diner, or a utility room, and further bedroom space above. It is therefore a house with such flexible options, the perfect home for a young professional or growing family, or someone looking to downsize. The quiet setting, secluded garden and close proximity to the station, are all first class, and this strength of position, combined with such a great house and incredible community spirit, make it one that we really love.
The rear garden is a great feature of this property and is fully enclosed. Immediately to the rear of the property is an area of patio and a further area of lawn, bordered by mature shrubs, plants and small trees. To the left is the garage which also has access to the rear garden.
