One careful owner... In brief, Mill House, 6 Brodick Road has been lovingly cared for by one family since it was purchased from Jelson Homes in 1985. This house has been maintained to a very high standard and other than a lick of paint to your own tastes, this is a real 'plug & play' property. Just move in and enjoy! The established Rear Garden has been created from a blank canvas over the last 30 years and incorporates beautiful planting, evergreen screening, pathways, hidden areas, decking, sun terrace, greenhouse, sheds, great storage and even an Alligator! (but he's going too!) - the green-fingered owners have also cleverly established their own Mistletoe. The Double Garage is huge, it really does take 2 cars with plenty of storage space to spare and an automatic roller shutter door, who doesn't love that? And the driveway will take a further 3 vehicles, or 2 and a caravan. Internally, it is a well laid out home with Lounge, Dining Room, Conservatory, Kitchen and 2 Utility Rooms (with the potential to open up into a huge open Kitchen Diner area if you prefer) and a downstairs loo. Upstairs, 4 decent sized Bedrooms, 2 Double, 1 Single, the 4th is not sure if it is a large Single or a small Double, and a lovely family Bathroom. The property also has external security cameras and parking security posts. With parks, schools, shops & amenities, commuting links all nearby, this property needs to be viewed to appreciate just how much house you are getting for your money.
As you pull on to the extensive 3-year-old Driveway, clicking the remote to open the Garage door, it is immediately obvious that this is a well cared for property. The exterior is well maintained, the planting is neatly trimmed and the soffits and fascias, installed in 2008, are regularly cleaned. Entering by way of the covered porch (which also serves as access to the Garage through a side door and also to the Rear Garden), through the part glazed UPVC front door into a bright and welcoming Entrance Hall, there is a handy downstairs cloakroom, stairs leading to the first floor and glazed, panelled doors leading to the Lounge, Dining Room and Kitchen. Relax in the Lounge in front of the living flame gas fire or maybe you would prefer a seat in the fully glazed Conservatory, overlooking the beautiful Rear Garden. With the rear doors open, you may even be tempted to take a cool drink onto the sun terrace, drinking in the sunshine in this South-West facing garden. The Lounge leads through an archway into the Dining Room, adding elegant formality or family meals away from the lure of the TV. The Kitchen is well equipped with a large 5 ring gas burning hob and stainless steel cooker hood along with an electric double oven seated in traditional wooden base and wall units. Turn the corner and you enter the Utility Room with additional sink and base units with the 7-year-old condensing boiler tucked in the corner. Take the rear door, not into the garden but into a sizeable and extremely useful Conservatory-style Utility Workshop. A great place for doing the laundry, storage, tools, boots etc and even a workbench for those keen gardeners, DIY'ers, or craft enthusiasts. 2 external sheds add to the more than ample storage in this property and a discreet home for all those wheelie bins.
Back in the house, and taking the stairs to the first floor, there are 4 Bedrooms, a Bathroom and Airing Cupboard off the Landing. Bedroom 1, to the rear, is a large Double with built in wardrobes on one side wall and around and over the bed. Bedroom 2 is another good sized Double, also to the rear. Bedroom 3 has accommodated a Double bed but would be happier with a Small Double. The fourth Bedroom, the only one to the front of the property, is a Single which could also be a great Home Office or Study. Finally, the modern Bathroom has both a bath and separate shower cubicle.
Ideally situated within 2 miles of Hinckley Town Centre which offers a regular market, a vast array of shops, pubs and restaurants and the exciting new £80 million cinema and retail complex, The Crescent.

For security, there are external cameras recording to hard disk in addition to the parking security posts and lockable porch gate. The owners would consider offering the property chain-free if necessary.
