Gilchrist Way forms part of an exclusive development which was constructed during 2004 by Messrs Persimmon Homes.
Situated on the lower slopes of Salcombe Hill, the property is conveniently situated within walking distance of the town centre and the popular Regency Esplanade. Also nearby is an entrance into ‘The Byes’, a delightful riverside walk and cycle track.
This attractive detached home enjoys superb views in a westerly direction over the Sid Valley to the surrounding hills. The property offers spacious and flexible accommodation spread over two floors, with well- proportioned rooms. Gas fired central heating is installed and there are uPVC double glazed windows, which include two sets of French doors from the sitting room leading onto a west facing balcony which takes full advantage of the views. There is also a uPVC double glazed conservatory to the rear elevation, which has French doors leading into the rear garden. The property is accessed via a wide set of entrance steps leading to a most spacious reception hall with a cloakroom off. The sitting room and study enjoy a westerly aspect and the separate dining room leads into the conservatory. The kitchen is attractively fitted with polished granite worksurfaces and built in appliances and from here there are double doors leading into the garden and access into a useful utility room. To this level there is also a master bedroom suite, which enjoys a westerly aspect and lovely views, with an adjoining dressing room and en-suite bathroom. To the lower floor there is a hallway, two further bedrooms – both with a fitted wardrobe and a family bathroom. From the lower floor there is also access into the double garage, with a further storage area and a workshop.
To the outside there is an attractive landscaped garden to the front and rear which has been laid for ease of maintenance. Adjoining the double garage is a driveway/turning area providing ample parking.
