Century Road can be found at the top side of the town, off Victoria Hill and a nice walk to the town either along footpaths through the housing area, along the roadside or for the more adventurous, across the fields on the excellent network of footpaths surrounding the town - - a haven for walkers and dog owners alike. In fact, it is possible to walk 360 degrees around the town, only crossing a road to get from one path to another.. Whether young or old the town has something for everyone including a comprehensive range of shops, primary and high schools (including Sixth Form), health centre and bus routes. Furthermore, a number of cultural activities take place throughout the year including Theatre, Classical Concerts and an Art Exhibition.
7 Century Road stands out for all the right reasons, along Century Road. Eye catchingly well presented and maintained, the smart rendered exterior is adorned with an established wisteria and well planted front garden. A driveway at the side allows two cars in tandem to park off road in front of the garage with further visitor parking readily available along the road including within pull-ins. From the moment one steps through the front door it is apparent these owners since new have been through the house upgrading room by room. A lovely oak floorboard is laid from the front entrance door through out the ground floor save for the kitchen which has an equally smart floor surface of large ceramic tiles. A feature of this design of house is the elegant staircase and here the owners have had the genius idea of laying a classic stair carpet with rods which really shows off the staircase to its full potential. Upstairs, this being a house comparable in size to many a four bedroom design, has three double bedrooms the master bedroom particularly being of a great size and featuring windows at both front and side elevations. Furthermore, the master features built-in wardrobes and en suite shower room. The landing between all first floor rooms is a lovely size also, sizeable enough to accommodate a piece of furniture if desired. The bathroom completes the picture being redesigned with a stylish suite and finishing details. Outside, the mostly walled garden to the rear is a delight with no grass only beautifully kept planted areas and walkways combining pea shingle with paving which includes flagstones, cobbles and the like. The rear garden has tremendous privacy not only from clever orientation with neighbouring properties but also as a result of judicious tree planting inside the boundary wall. The fact the garden boundary is mostly brick is another significant point to note. Much care and attention is lavished on the planting scheme throughout the garden creating a relaxing and picturesque outdoor space.
Extending through the heart of the ground floor serving as a hub to all space culminating in the elegant staircase at the far end. Oak floorboards are laid through the hall extending into each of the two reception rooms and cloakroom.
