There is scope to update and remodel the accommodation and potentially extend, subject to the necessary building regulations. The property has well-proportioned accommodation and benefits from picture windows, allowing light to flood into the property and affording views over the established gardens. Features include high sloping ceilings, exposed ceiling timbers, polished wooden flooring, wood panelling and a feature stone fireplace in the living room. Wood Vale is well located at the end of a no-through road within the village of Leigh, and within close proximity to the village recreation grounds.
