About this property

  • This 1970s detached family house has served the present owner for over 25 years and works very well as a family home, with fine gardens and woodland beyond and with a delightful, peaceful position, away from main roads.

    The property is considered to be in need of some updating in places, which would work well. However, it also has the benefit of a recent planning permission for a comprehensive enlargement and re-modelling (Ref: TW21/04064/FULL dated 8 February, 2022), similar to schemes which have been undertaken on a good number of other houses in the vicinity.

    The current layout is rational and in particular offers a well-designed principal bedroom suite. The new plans take the property to the next level, increasing the accommodation by about 1,866 square feet, going from four to six bedrooms.

    The house is nicely set back from the cul-de-sac, with the driveway on one side giving good parking and leading to the integral garage. The generous mature front garden is mainly lawn, with tall hedging and trees provides seclusion from the neighbours on either side and double gates by the side of the garage, giving access to an extensive established rear garden, benefiting from a southerly aspect. There is terracing immediately to the rear of the house, with hedging to the neighbours and steps down to the lawn and a swimming pool (which has been unused for several years and in need of work, including a new liner), fish pond, garden shed and further shed housing the pool equipment.

    To the rear, the garden becomes less formal and gives way to an extensive area of woodland, backing onto open land, taking the total plot in all, to about 1.53 acres.

A very rare opportunity, with not many houses left to work on in this sought after location and a great position and plot too.
