    About this property

    • The house is approached from the driveway and double garage, via a path that meanders through the gardens. Being set back from the lane it is privately positioned.

      On ground floor there is a formal sitting room with attractive bay window and a fireplace, a formal dining room, an informal sitting room and conservatory that are conveniently positioned off the kitchen. To the rear is a utility area with utility room, cloakroom and store. On first floor the accommodation could provide up to six bedrooms but it is currently set up as five bedrooms with a study. There are three bath/shower rooms, two of which are en suite to bedrooms.

      The gardens and grounds are particularly lovely, being an interesting mix of formal planting, lawns and a small area of woodland. In total the plot is just over half an acre, but the elevated nature of the plot and the views beyond do make it feel larger still.

      Outbuildings comprise a large 500 sqft timber workshop/shed, a summer house and a double garage.

      Agent's note: Whilst the property has been maintained by the current owner, it is assumed that a buyer will want to invest in improvements, refurbishment or extensions, subject of course to obtaining planning consent.

    This home has such potential, I just love the position of it and the ample space it has to extend into.
