MAIN DESCRIPTION Tucked away in the corner of Herrick Gardens is this lovely gem of a three-bedroomed home. Immaculately presented, and designed to be energy efficient with cavity wall insulation, solar panels that provide free electricity during the day and fully uPVC double glazed, with a gorgeous kitchen and a surprisingly large back garden, this property is essential viewing for anyone who wants a quality family home with plenty of outside space.
Herrick Gardens is a quiet cul-de-sac in a peaceful corner of Balby, less than ten minutes from the A1(M) and M18 but abutting a wide green space and within easy reach of supermarkets, primary and secondary schools and Doncaster Town Centre.
ENTRANCE HALL Floored in light ash-blonde laminate with a soft, neutral decor, the hallway has a warm, inviting feeling to it. With white woodwork and coving, a composite front door with feature glazed insert and side window, it’s light and airy. There are stairs leading to the first floor and doors to the living room and the dining kitchen, as well as to a sizeable under-stairs cupboard.
LIVING ROOM 14′ 5" x 13′ 9" (4.4m x 4.2m) Decorated in modern pale silver grey with white woodwork and coving, the living room is a beautifully restful room. A deep bay window with feature integral blinds can accommodate a two-seater sofa with ease. The focal point of the room has to be the wonderful cast iron wood-burner, set into a recessed fireplace that adds a cosy charm to the room, with its wooden mantlepiece and stone hearth. There’s also a radiator, power points and central ceiling light, and a door leads through into the kitchen/diner.
KITCHEN/DINER 21′ 11" x 10′ 2" (6.7m x 3.1m) This gorgeous kitchen is a cook’s paradise. There’s so much counter space and plenty of cupboards and drawers for storage with three distinct sections of kitchen units. The one directly under the window overlooking the back garden is set with twin round, stainless steel sinks, with a mixer tap between them, and a unit housing the boiler to one side. To the left is a stretch of counter incorporating a gorgeous range cooker, complete with stylish chrome and glass extractor hood and glossy black brick-style tiles as a splash back. Also plumbing for a dishwasher.
The third section incorporates wall, floor and drawer units, and all three sections comprise of grey door fronts and dark grey granite counter tops. The kitchen decor is white, making for a fresh, inviting environment, and it guarantees the kitchen will be one of the new owner’s very favourite rooms. Light ash-blonde, wood effect laminate flooring, (with underfloor heating) provides a durable, easy clean surface under foot, and tracked ceiling spotlights give excellent illumination. There’s plenty of space for a large, American-style fridge freezer as well as a good sized table and chairs. Large, south-facing, double French doors lead out into the back garden, letting in all the sunshine, and another door leads through into the utility area.
UTILITY ROOM Comprised of a lobby, with additional door to the back garden, a pantry and a laundry room, this extremely useful space ensures that everything has a place and provides valuable additional storage. An additional door leads to the downstairs WC
BEDROOM ONE 14′ 5" x 10′ 2" (4.4m x 3.1m) Beautifully restful, with dark laminate flooring and a calming feature wall, the master bedroom faces out over the front of the house. There’s a radiator, offset ceiling light and power points, and a good size built-in closet too. It has ample room for a kingsize bed, plus bedroom furniture.
BEDROOM TWO 14′ 5" x 10′ 5" (4.4m x 3.2m) Decorated in pale blue and bright nursery colours, with clouds on the ceiling, the back room is currently occupied by the younger members of the household. It overlooks the back garden, getting the best of the afternoon sun, and has a happy, cheerful feel to it. There’s a generous built in wardrobe and a further built in cupboard, and a radiator, offset ceiling light and power points. Large enough to fit a kingsize bed and additional furniture.
BEDROOM THREE 9′ 6" x 7′ 2" (2.9m x 2.2m) The third bedroom has lots of character! Decorated in bright, bouncy primary colours and kitted out as the perfect playroom, it’s an utter delight. It looks out over the front garden and has the requisite radiator, ceiling light and power points. If not required as a third bedroom it could also make the perfect office or dressing room.
BATHROOM 7′ 2" x 5′ 6" (2.2m x 1.7m) The family bathroom has a cream bathroom suite, comprising panel sided bath, pedestal washbasin and a low-level WC. The floor has water resistant light oak effect laminate and the wide, opaque glazed window lets plenty of light into the room. Over the bath is a shower, and it’s tiled floor to ceiling.
EXTERIOR SPACE FRONT GARDEN Reached through a wooden gate set between brick gateposts, the front garden is compact and laid mainly to gravel. Stepping stones lead to the front door, and a whimsical curved line of irregularly shaped ones that lead around to the back of the house. A number of mature cordyline palms decorate the front yard, in a pleasing array of colours.
REAR GARDEN Talk about saving the best bit for the last – the back garden is another highlight of the property. The triangular plot is surprisingly large and there’s something for everyone here. Immediately outside the French windows that lead from the kitchen is a lovely octagonal paved area, perfect for al fresco dining. It’s surrounded by flower beds – ideal for that mediterranean style herb garden! To the right is a grassy lawn and a patch of bark chippings, currently taken up with the current owner’s amazing wooden playground. They have an enclosed pen for chickens and along the side of the house are several raised beds – it’s like having the allotment on your doorstep. This amazing garden also benefits from a brick built shed that extends out from the utility area off the kitchen, and an off road parking space behind wrought iron gates. There’s easy access to the rear of the property off Longfellow Road, and additional off street parking there too. The rear roof of the house is fitted with an array of solar panels that provide free electricity during the day.
