About this property

  • 24 Blunts Wood Road is an attractive detached house, dating from the 1960s and offering about 2,063 sq ft of well-presented accommodation arranged over two floors.
    The property was extended by the owners in 2004, and offers versatile living space which can be configured as either a single five bedroom house, or as a three bedroom property complemented by an adjoining two bedroom annexe, with the benefit of its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom. There is further potential to reconfigure the house, subject to the necessary consents.

    The floorplans give an excellent overview of the current layout and extent of the accommodation. Of particular note is the large kitchen/dining room, which has an Italian tiled floor and French doors to the rear garden. The 20 ft sitting room has a cosy wood-burning stove and French doors to the garden. Both kitchens have a good range of fitted units, with space for appliances.

    The five first floor bedrooms are served by two bathrooms, each with separate shower cubicles and baths.
    Outside, the property is approached via a short driveway offering off street parking, with a front lawn with raised bed.
    The fully enclosed rear garden has a paved terrace, creating a good space for eating al fresco. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with two substantial timber sheds offering storage space. Adjoining the garden is a parcel of ancient woodland with a pond.

    In all, about a third of an acre.
