    About this property

    • Chandelle is a 1970's house which backs on to the common and has been in the current ownership since new. As such it provides plenty of potential to improve or re-model. The light and airy accommodation is split level with the sitting room and conservatory at an elevated level. The conservatory also opens onto a roof terrace from which there are distant views. The kitchen and dining room are at entrance level with a second conservatory being positioned off the kitchen thus being a suitable breakfast room. The four bedrooms are found on the lower ground floor.

      The gardens and grounds are a wonderful feature of the property and are a haven for wildlife. They mainly extend to the west and south of the house and are interspersed with specimen trees including Scots Pine, Sycammore, Ash, Oak and Elm. However, of particular note is the colourful array of spring bulbs as well as a a wide variety of wild orchids. Within the garden is a timber store and greenhouse. A Cotswold stone wall divides the house from the common. To the front of the house there is private parking in front of the double garage which interconnects with the house. In all the property extends to just over half an acre.
