    Situated in a tree-lined country lane in the hamlet of Upper Hartfield, The Grove is a two-bedroom detached bungalow built in 1920. The property has remained in the same family for over 100 years and is being offered to the market for the first time, and although now in need of updating offers plenty of scope to modernise, improve and potentially extend (subject to the necessary consents).

    The full extent and layout of the house extends to just over 1,000 square feet and can be seen on the floor plan.

    The Grove is well situated in the centre of its third of an acre plot, approached via a gated, block paved driveway offering ample parking space for two or three vehicles. The house is complemented by a separate large timber garage with workbench and electronically operated up and over door; there are well-maintained lawns to both the front and rear, enclosed by fencing and hedging.
