As you enter the property through the porch, you are greeted by a wide entrance hall which gives access to all rooms. The front room is lovely and bright, with a beautiful bay window. Adjacent to this is the dining room with a pretty fireplace, a grand place to entertain. This looks out onto the fantastic garden. The kitchen is a great size, with space to eat, and again boasts views out to the garden. There is also a utility room/larder with side-access. There is a downstairs cloakroom, as well as a separate larder. Access to the garden is through the sunroom which joins the kitchen and dining room. The beautiful garden, with a couple of fruit trees and a shed, is wonderfully maintained, and benefits from a large amount of sun all day.
On the first floor, there are four well sized double rooms. The principal bedroom has a bay window and is spacious and bright. The smallest room also has a bay window and is currently used as an office: it would suit anyone looking to work from home. The two bedrooms to the rear of the property have views over the peaceful garden. The family bathroom is also on this floor, and there is an abundance of storage. The top floor houses two additional bedrooms, as well as a shower room and also two substantial storage areas. These rooms also have good views over the neighbourhood.
Bavant Road is situated just moments from the lush Preston Park, a popular place for families to spend time and socialise, and home to many sports. A short walk takes you to the popular Fiveways area, where there is a great selection of cafes, bakeries and other independent shops. The proximity to primary and secondary schools is a particular highlight of the district. Access to London and Gatwick is easy from Preston Park station, which is less than half a mile away. The A23 and A27 are nearby and there is a frequent bus service to the city centre.
We have loved this house for nearly 40 years, and have really enjoyed the community. Our sons grew up here, each with their own room, and our grandchildren have absolutely loved playing in the garden, and in Preston Park when they come to visit us. The garden is a delight. This light, spacious house, with its flexible rooms, has been a real pleasure to call home.
