About this property

  • Closing date for best and final offers: 5pm on Thursday 15 October 2020, please contact the Agent for further details.

    Understood to date from 1963, Lichens is a detached Turner-style house attractively characterised by brick, part tile hung and part rendered elevations. Whilst being well presented and having clearly been a much-loved home, the property benefits from having plenty of scope to update and improve, and the generous plot size offers ample space and good potential to extend (subject to the necessary consents).

    The accommodation is arranged over two floors, the full extent and layout of which can be seen on the floor plan. The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall, off which lies a cloakroom and a charming dual-aspect sitting room featuring a stone fireplace with inset gas fire. Beyond the sitting room is a dining room overlooking the rear garden, with French doors opening to the conservatory. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units and integrated appliances, and has space for a small breakfast table; it is complemented by a good-sized utility room with walk-in larder, space for laundry appliances and a door opening to the integral single garage.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor, bedroom one being dual-aspect and of a particularly generous size. The bedrooms are served by a fully-tiled shower room and three of the four have built in storage cupboards.

    Lichens is approached from Warden Court by a block-paved driveway which allows parking for two cars and in turn leads to the garage, with electronically-operated door. The front and rear gardens are of particular note, being largely laid to carefully tended lawn and interspersed with small trees and well-stocked, colourful flower and shrub borders. There is gated access to one side of the house and paved pathways leading around to a small patio at the rear of the property; there is a further enclosed and private seating area in the north-eastern corner. A timber shed offers garden storage.

    The plot measures approximately 76 ft in width and 98 ft from the rear of the house to the eastern boundary.

    Agent's NoteWarden Court is a private road. There is no formal maintenance charge, but residents make an annual contribution of c.£40 for the upkeep of the roundabout.
