Avalon, 25 Rectory Road, BURNHAM-ON-SEA, Somerset
Avalon is an attractive detached family home which has been refurbished throughout and finished to an exceptionally high standard. This impressive property measures around 3700 square feet and is set in a plot thought to be just under an acre. Located in a wide, tree lined residential road which is just a short walk away from the centre of Town. Whilst the current owners have retained much of the charm and character you would expect to find in a property of its age, they have also cleverly updated and modernised this spacious and light property to be very much in keeping with modern family living. The accommodation includes an impressive reception hall, large dual aspect sitting room, dining room and a family room. The stunning kitchen breakfast room has a larger than average utility room leading off. There is also a downstairs shower room, cloakroom and plenty of storage. The versatile accommodation on the first floor offers two well proportioned double bedrooms with walk in wardrobes and en suite shower rooms. There are a further five double bedrooms and a family bathroom. With two staircases there is clearly scope to create bedroom suites if required. Outside there is a large front garden with the drive sweeping to the detached double garage at the rear. Planning permission has been requested to provide permission to erect a new single storey property with its own drive and garden at the far end of the plot. Offered with the benefit of no onward chain.
