    About this property

    • The Hatch is a substantial detached house, with a pleasing layout and generous gardens, dating from the 1960s with a rear ground floor extension added in 2001.
      The property offers comfortable and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, and whilst requiring some cosmetic updating is presented in generally good order throughout and offers great potential to create a wonderful family home, with scope for further extension (subject to permission).

      On the ground are two reception rooms, a spacious study and a superb kitchen/breakfast room, sited in the rear extension and with French doors to the decking. The utility room adjoins the kitchen and gives access to the covered rear porch, leading in turn to the boiler room, gardener's WC, coal store, garaging and rear garden.

      On the first floor, the principal bedroom has built in wardrobes, an en suite bathroom, and an adjoining dressing room which could be used as a fifth bedroom or further office space. There are three further bedrooms, one with access to a large balcony, a bathroom and a WC on the first floor.

      The Hatch sits almost centrally within its grounds and is approached via a five bar gate which opens to the lawned front garden and driveway offering plenty of parking ahead of the two bay double garage.

      The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with mature trees and shrubs, with a substantial oak framed summerhouse and woodstore, kitchen garden and greenhouse.
      In all about 0.6 of an acre.
