    About this property

    • This spacious and highly individual property started out as a single storey dwelling and has been extensively remodelled with a two-storey extension to create a generously proportioned family home with a flexible and unique layout. The property has over 3100 sq ft of space across two floors, in addition to over 1000 sq ft of space in outbuildings and garages. With its excellent well-connected location, size and views, this is a superb family home with great scope for modernisation. It is possible that a buyer may seek to secure consent to rebuild the home entirely, though the size is sufficient that a buyer might equally choose to remodel, refurbish or alter the existing structure.

      The house layout is such that the upper floor reception rooms benefit from very fine views over the established gardens and the countryside beyond, both from inside the house and from the balcony. Internally the house has been well maintained though would benefit from improvement to bring it up to its full potential; this house is an exciting prospect for the new owner to personalise to their wishes. Planning permission was granted (now lapsed) to provide two further bedrooms, two shower rooms and storage by raising the roof of the existing single storey dwelling .

      On the lower ground floor, the accommodation comprises a hallway with good storage leading to a principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, two further bedrooms, a shower room and a utility room. To the upper ground floor there are a further three bedrooms (two with built-in storage), a sewing room/box room and a shower room. The well-proportioned reception rooms comprise a large kitchen/dining room ideal for family meals, a separate formal dining room, a conservatory and a very substantial living room with good size balcony.

      The property is set back from the road along a private driveway in a very secluded setting being hidden from view from the road. The plot includes ample parking and several outbuildings including a detached double garage, single garages, sheds, a covered dining area and a log store. The gardens are mature and mostly laid to lawn with a number of well-established trees providing a further degree of privacy. Overall the property sits on a plot approaching an acre (see site plan for details).
