About this property

  • This highly versatile family home is available to purchase for the first time in over 30 years, having been owned by the same family since the mid-1980s. Accessed via a private driveway with two off-street parking spaces and plenty of room for a lockable bike store, the property is well presented, easy to maintain, and exemplifies modern convenience.

    Main Residence
    The primary entrance is privately located on the side of the property and leads to a hallway with access to a WC and both the well-appointed kitchen and an extremely bright and airy living/dining room. Unique to the property are the twin bay windows which create the feeling of space and flood these rooms with natural light. The L-shaped living/dining room is open to the kitchen which contains built-in appliances including an oven, gas hob, wall-hung and freestanding cupboards, and space for white goods. A glazed door leads from the kitchen to a paved, westerly-facing terrace and extremely private rear garden. On the upper level are three well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which contain built-in storage. There is a generous, well-fitted family bathroom, a linen cupboard, and access to the loft space that future owners could consider converting (subject to the relevant planning permissions).

    Accessed via a private entrance at the front of the property, this presently self-contained area offers versatility. It comprises a living room that feels very spacious, a bedroom with a generous walk-in wardrobe, and an en suite bathroom; there is also a utility room and staircase. This annex could form a self-contained apartment to rent out or integrate into the main residence.

    A charming terrace suits al-fresco dining and provides seclusion to relax and enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and surrounded by a variety of mature trees and planting which create a real sense of privacy. Minimal maintenance is needed and there is space for growing vegetables; garden furniture and equipment can be stored in the shed. According to the existing owner, it's not uncommon to be woken by birdsong in this tranquil location, and there is even a friendly robin who makes regular visits!
