The substantial holiday home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen/dining room, children's playroom, lounge, study and utility room. With two bedrooms and a bathroom on each of the second and third floors it is an ideal property for family holidays, two families meeting up or going on holiday together and larger parties of guests. The property has been fitted out to high specification with a modern approach and a careful attention to detail. Families have been carefully considered with the inclusion of the playroom with a two seater leather sofa, bean bags and its own 42” plasma television and DVD player plus lots of books and more traditional games. There are stair gates to safeguard small children on the landings, a cot and two high chairs area available, steps for the bathroom and even coloured plastic cutlery, dishes and plates. The ground floor lounge also has a 42” plasma television and DVD player as well as a CD player. The lounge has a three seater leather sofa with two reclining seats as well as a two seater leather sofa and bean bags. The property has an energy efficient gas fired central heating system and large hot water cylinder ensuring there is always plenty of hot water. The property has been insulated to a very high standard and with the double glazed windows make the house warm and cosy. There is a feature electric fire which gives coal and log effects as well a low level of additional heat when required. Each bedroom has a double fitted wardrobe with plenty of storage space, a suitcase rack, (to the double bedrooms), and plenty of clothes hangers including those for children's clothes. The kitchen has a fast action halogen hob, electric oven with grille, extract canopy, microwave oven, a full sized dishwasher and two fridges one of which has a small freezer compartment. The study has a BT hub which provides free and unlimited access to the internet so a laptop computer or i-Pad can connect to the World Wide Web by keying in the password on the hub. Car parking is free and unreserved in the Market Place although finding a place is not usually a problem. The property, and location in the town centre, is not suitable for pets so we have a “no pets” policy. The property is strictly non smoking in all rooms and being a town house it is not suitable for pets.More
