About this property

  • West Lodge 10 Carrick Drive is a charming detached family home that comes to the market for the first time in 35 years, with no onward chain, offering the incoming purchaser the opportunity to update and re-model as required, subject to the necessary building consents. Of particular note are the lovely, established gardens, which wrap around the property and have a south-westerly aspect. Also of benefit is the garage and off road parking, together with the excellent location within a popular private road, yet under half a mile to the station.

    The principal reception rooms comprise a double aspect sitting room with a gas fire and a double aspect dining room with French doors to the rear terrace.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of wall and base units, and benefits from integral appliances, a breakfast bar and a useful walk-in pantry.

    A utility room offers additional storage and space for appliances, together with two further store rooms and access to both the integral garage and outside.

    A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    Arranged over the first floor are three bedrooms, one of which benefits from a double aspect, with attractive views over the gardens and two have hand basins.

    Completing the accommodation is a well-appointed bathroom and a separate WC.

    To the front, the garden is enclosed by established laurel hedging, with a pedestrian gate and path leading to the front door. A driveway provides ample parking and leads to the integral garage.

    The beautiful, established gardens wrap around the property and sit predominantly to the south and west, being mainly laid to lawn with shrub beds and borders planted with a wide variety of perennials, shrubs and specimen trees, providing year round interest and a high degree of privacy. There are two paved seating areas, ideal for al fresco entertaining and there is also a shed. In total, the plot amounts to about 0.25 of an acre.

In my opinion this is a fantastic home, in a highly sought after location, with options to extend if required by a new owner
