The Property
Kyah is an impressive three bed, two public room family home with sun room/porch, utility room and family bathroom. Entered into a bright and sunny sun room area with exposed stonework located to the rear of the property, where there is access to a large utility room, boot room and dining kitchen and where large windows offer very pleasant views of the rear garden. The utility room is a great additional space where the gas boiler, washing machine, Belfast sink and pulley clothes dryer are located. The boot room with window to the rear provides excellent storage and has scope for conversion to a WC with relevant permissions.

The bright dining kitchen, located to the rear of the property, offers a good range of floor and wall units with ample space for dining table and chairs and has a double glazed sash and case window overlooking the garden. High ceilings, large windows and solid timber doors are attractive features that run throughout the property. There is access from the dining kitchen to a large double bedroom to the rear and beautiful sitting room to the front. The double bedroom, one of three good sized bedrooms, is extremely light and airy with double aspect windows allowing lots of natural light through. Access from here to the second public room, the living room.

The layout is quirky and rooms are versatile in use, allowing this property to work for many different families.

Two public rooms, a sitting room and living room are both beautifully presented and boast high ceilings, picture rails and large sash and case windows. Both have open grate fires (one with back boiler) with lovely feature fireplaces and light and bright interiors. The remaining two double bedrooms are very spacious, again with high ceilings and the master bedroom enjoys stunning views of the large front garden, has a open grate working fireplace and ample space for bedroom furniture.

Lastly, but not least, the family bathroom is charming and sizable with a 3pc suite of roll top bath with shower above, wash hand basin and WC. Again double aspect windows allow for a lot of natural light.

The front entrance porch has original stained glass windows and exposed stone work and the entrance hallway is warm and welcoming with lovely feature arch and solid wood flooring. Kyah is both unique and fabulous and exudes a wonderful amount of charm and character and must be seen to fully appreciate.
