The wet room on the ground floor has been upgraded with modern and chic fittings. The spacious kitchen/ dining room has up to date wall and floor units as well as ample space for a family sized table. Upstairs the generous master bedroom boasts excellent storage together with a stylish bathroom. The bathroom features a freestanding bath with floor taps. Ample storage has been provided for with fitted wardrobes and cupboards throughout.
21 Birks View is approached by a gravel off street parking area and a tidy front garden. To the rear of the house and accessed through the conservatory or by a path at the side of the house is a beautifully managed and enclosed garden. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn and surrounded by decorative borders that provide an abundance of colour and diversity. The garden also benefits from a paved patio outside the conservatory providing an sheltered spot for al fresco dining.
