Property Summary

A beautifully-presented, extended family home with stunning kitchen/diner, study, utility, gardens, a detached single garage and within a few hundred metres of local amenities.

Not far from the M4 and the mainline railway station, the property is also ideally located for commuting east or west towards London or Bristol.

Location
Larksfield is a quiet cul-de-sac comprising mostly semi-detached homes in Covingham. Buses from nearby Covingham Drive run regularly to the town centre from Covingham Drive. There are a number of local amenities within a couple of hundred metres of the property, including a Co-op convenience store, a Post Office, a pharmacy and a newsagent. The Messenger pub is also nearby, offering pub grub, a beer garden and live sport on TV.

The Greenbridge Retail Park is just over a kilometre away and is home to an IMAX cinema and a selection of popular big-name stores while a Morrison’s superstore is located in nearby Dorcan, just over a kilometre to the south.

For those interested in education, both Covingham Park Primary and Colebrook Junior were rated as good schools by Ofsted in 2016.

Travel further afield by car is made comparatively simple thanks to the proximity of the M4 while trains from Swindon run regularly to London Paddington, Bristol, Swansea and Cheltenham.

Exterior
The house is separated from the road by a lawn and a concrete drive to the left leading down the side of the property to a detached single garage with a up-and-over door. A gravel path leads to the front door while an alternative entrance is available through a side door through the utility room.

An enclosed garden to the rear of the house is laid mostly to lawn and lined with established plants and shrubs along the foot of a head-high brick wall to the right, with side access, to the property and the garage wall to the left. A small block-paved patio can be accessed from the kitchen/diner while wall-mounted lights offer some illumination after dark.

Interior
The front door of the property opens onto an enclosed porch with an internal door to the left leading to the bedroom which includes an en suite shower room, accessed via a sliding door with an opaque glass panel. The room is fitted with a patterned tiled floor; a WC with dual flush; a wall-mounted sink with mixer tap; a heated, ladder-style towel rail in chrome; and a glass-and-chrome shower cubicle.

The second door from the porch leads through to the carpeted living room, fitted with a wood-panelled wall incorporating the flue for a free-standing wood burner, mounted on a patterned, tiled hearth. A door to the left leads to the stairs to the first floor while double glass doors open onto perhaps the home’s most outstanding feature - the stunning extended kitchen/diner.

Here, a wood-effect floor complements an exposed wooden beam - offering a sense of traditional character - but the remainder of the kitchen is both modern and roomy, including base and wall units with copper-effect handles above and below solid wood worktops. An integrated fridge-freezer, dishwasher and electric oven are incorporated in the design as well as a composite stainless steel sink beneath a double window overlooking the drive. A four-ring induction hob sits beneath an illuminated extractor, although adjustable spotlights are also fitted above the cooking and preparation areas to offer additional lighting after dark. Hanging teardrop lights have also been fitted above the dining area with similar fixtures above the breakfast bar, with the double doors leading out onto the patio, adding to the sense of space in the summer months.

There is space and plumbing for a washer-drier, some additional storage and a second stainless steel sink in the utility room, which also boasts a wood-effect floor and includes a recessed alcove housing the downstairs loo.

A small study is also located on the ground floor and can be accessed via a glass door leading from the dining area. Features include plenty of power sockets, a window overlooking the rear garden and an attractive half-height wood-panelled wall, painted grey.

The carpeted stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto two double and one single bedroom, all fitted with carpets and wall-mounted radiators. The first floor also includes a large, under-eaves storage cupboard and the house bathroom. The latter is fitted with a wood-effect floor; a WC with dual flush and a concealed cistern; a hand basin with chrome mixer tap mounted above a double-doored storage cupboard; and a panel bath with chrome and glass splashscreen and a shower attachment connected to the mixer tap.

The house is double glazed and fitted with a programmable gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat and individual controls on each of the radiators to regulate warmth. All fixed points have also been fitted with low-energy lighting.
