    About this property

    • A delightful character home with a lovely garden to the front overlooking the woods opposite, and with parking and a pretty courtyard area to the rear. The house is believed to date back to 1920 and offers charming accommodation with further permission to extend (Ref. PL/21/1488/FA). Character features include leaded windows, stripped doors, picture rails and fireplaces.

      A covered front door opens into the reception hall with storage and stairs to the first floor. Just off the reception hall is a shower room and utility area, with space and plumbing for appliances. The sitting room enjoys a front aspect with French doors giving access to the garden, while a brick fireplace with a wood burning stove provides a focal point. Attractive oak wood flooring extends through to the dining area, with plenty of room for a good sized table, overlooking the courtyard to the rear. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with storage and display units with wood worktops and integrated appliances including an electric hob with extractor cover and an oven. There is space for a dishwasher and an American style fridge/freezer. A breakfast bar gives informal seating and a stable door leads to the rear courtyard.

      On the first floor the landing benefits from a storage cupboard, and leads to a fully tiled family bathroom. The principal bedroom, featuring a cast iron fireplace, lies to the front with two further bedrooms to the rear both with fitted wardrobes.

      Set back from the road, Wood View enjoys an elevated position with steps to the gated front garden. Areas of lawn flank a central pathway leading to the front door and round to the side giving access to the rear courtyard. The garden enjoys a southerly aspect and is well screened with fencing and mature shrubs and trees, giving a good deal of privacy. On the other side of the house a pathway leads to a covered area, ideal for outside storage. The rear courtyard provides the perfect setting for outside dining and entertaining. A gate leads to the gravelled parking area behind the property, approached over a driveway.
