Copsey Grove, Drayton
Taking a wider view of the property market can reveal some delights, as a property in Drayton easily proves.
The house in Copsey Grove is on the end of a terrace and set on a bend in the road, the perfect combination for a plot that widens considerably as it extends rearwards to create a great family space.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the house has grown from its original three bedrooms and now offers up to five depending on the room use choices made by its next owners.
‘The work that’s been done is all about maximising space, ‘ explains Colin Shairp, of Town and Country Southern estate agents.
‘The garage, for instance, has become a sensible external store with an internal division that creates indoor storage accessed via the utility room at the back.
‘So many people look for a garage yet never use it so this makes the house practical, especially as there’s plenty of driveway parking.
‘The sitting room is set behind a study that has the front bay window to bring in more light – the sitting room itself opens through double doors into the conservatory overlooking the garden – the superbly equipped kitchen also has a door to the conservatory.
‘On the first floor, the three-bedroom layout of the original house has been skilfully reconfigured to create an extension of the landing through to the en-suite master bedroom above the garage.
‘There is also a family shower room on this level with space borrowed from the original bathroom now accommodating the stairs to the second floor where the landing serves a well-proportioned bedroom and a generous area of eaves storage.
‘To the rear is a larger than average wedge-shaped garden with a large patio area featuring raised borders and a brick retaining wall to one side plus a paved slope from the conservatory.
‘The lawned garden area at the very rear is set beside a raised deck.
‘Copsey Grove is perfectly placed for access to commuting routes, schools, and shops, again enhancing its family appeal.’
