    About this property

    • Gimbles is a five bedroom family home occupying a generous corner plot in a desirable and convenient location. Built in the 1930s, this handsome tile-hung property is a good example of that era and has been sympathetically extended and updated in 2014 to provide valuable additional accommodation with a modern, spacious and open configuration to the the living areas.

      Set well back from Forest Road behind a well-maintained front garden, the lawned areas and driveway, with a modern double garage and parking for several cars, provides an inviting approach.

      The house is designed to make the most of its delightful southerly-facing rear garden with all principal ground floor rooms, including a light-filled conservatory, enjoying direct outside access. The open-plan kitchen and breakfast room sits at the heart of the house, forming a flexible hub for family living and the triple-aspect sitting/dining room, over 30ft long, is a wonderful asset with its distinctive bay window and a contemporary wood burning stove.

      Light is a feature of this stylish property with three of the bedrooms enjoying the garden outlook and morning sunlight. With five bedrooms in total, including an impressive master suite with spacious dressing area and en suite shower room, the upstairs accommodation is well proportioned and set around a spacious landing that can double as an additional family area or study space.

      Gimbles has much to offer as a family home in terms of accommodation, location and its favourable setting within its attractive and practical gardens. It is also offered chain-free and ready to occupy.
