About this property

  • Built in the 1980s and with partially tile hung and brick elevations under a tiled roof, this is a classic detached family house, situated in desirable location within good reach of local amenities.

    The accommodation is well proportioned, with a pleasing layout, and is presented in good order. The 21' sitting room has a deep oriel window to the front, an inset gas fire and interior double doors to the entrance hall. The dining room has folding doors to the conservatory, and the adjoining kitchen has a good range of wall-hung and under-counter cupboards, and integrated appliances including an electric oven, an electric hob, a washing machine, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. The kitchen has a door giving access to the side of the house. A cloakroom and under stairs storage complete the ground floor.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room with power shower, basin and WC. There are three further bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom with power shower over the Jacuzzi bath.

    The property was built as one of a pair, and shares driveway access from Folders Lane with No.77. This leads to the block paved driveway, off street parking, detached double garage and the carport. The garage could offer potential for conversion to an annexe or games room, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions and consents.

    The house is set behind a tall beech and holly hedge, with part post and rail fencing to the front. The front garden is laid to lawn, and bordered on one side by a flint wall with flower beds. A path leads up to the front door, and on to the rear garden, which forms the major portion of the outside space, extending behind the house. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with some mature fruit trees. There is a patio spanning the rear elevation of the house with plenty of space for table and chairs, and a pergola at the far end with wisteria planted, and pebbled area creating a lovely space to sit and enjoy the gardens

    There is a substantial timber outbuilding with power and a telephone line connected, which currently serves as an office and garden storage. The grounds extend to almost a quarter of an acre (0.21 of an acre).

This is a great family house. What I like about this area is how accessible the town and schools are, as well as having the Country Park almost on the doorstep.
