Oakfield is in a pivotal location on the Millmount Road and within walking distance to the town centre. Viewing is recommended as the sale of Oakfield House offers the opportunity to purchase an excellent period house, of which there are only a limited number in the town. There is also the potential to develop the site which would suit a small residential development, potential a courtyard like development (subject to planning permission).
The wonderful mature gardens are framed by mature specimen trees and over the years they have benefited from much care and expenditure. There is a large patio with garden pavilion, perfect alfresco entertaining space. Directly behind and adjoining the garden pavilion is the car port which comfortably holds 2 cars. There is also a garden shed with ample storage space.
The coach house has been semi-renovated in recent years and is for conversion to secondary accommodation / office space / gym space amongst other uses (subject to PP). The property also benefits from a right of way over an adjacent lane and this could be used as the main access to the coach house, ensuring more privacy for the house. The coach house is currently laid out as two large rooms, one of which has a mezzanine level.
