    About this property

    • Built in 1905, 73 Oathall Road – also known as Downlands - is an attractive Edwardian detached house arranged over two floors.

      It has been in the same family for over twenty five years, and during this period has been the subject of improvements and additions, resulting in a generously proportioned and well-laid out family house. Its full layout and extent can be seen on the accompanying plan and briefly comprises three reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious conservatory, cloakroom and four double bedrooms, with an en suite/ family bathroom and separate shower room.

      The main house is complemented by a significant annexe, which has excellent homeworking potential, with either a living room and a bedroom or two offices, kitchen and shower room. The annexe has eight wired high speed broadband points, offering secure and reliable connections, ideal for home working. It has an attached tandem double garage; a block paved driveway to the front offers extensive off road parking.

      The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and trees planted.
