About this property

  • Jutland, 7 Carrick Drive is an architect designed property dating from the late 1960s with spacious and versatile accommodation providing lateral living. The house comes to the market for the first time in over 50 years and offers an opportunity to update if required. Features include wood panelling, ceiling timbers, full height windows and an unusual roof light in the sitting room allowing light to flood the accommodation. Of particular note is the part wall enclosed gardens which predominantly face the south and the excellent location within a popular private road yet under half a mile to the station.

    The principal reception rooms comprise a superbly proportioned sitting room with fitted shelving and an outlook over the garden, two conservatories both with direct access to the gardens, and the dining room which adjoins the kitchen.

    The kitchen is well appointed with a range of wall and base units, tile work surfaces and space for appliances.

    There is a useful study with fitted office furniture.

    The three bedrooms all have wardrobes and views over the south facing garden. One has a door to the garden while the other two are connected via a bi-folding wall providing versatility.

    Completing the accommodation is a well-appointed bathroom, boiler room and separate cloakroom.

    To the front of the property is a cobbled driveway providing parking for a number of cars, and leading to the attached garage which has a sink and two pedestrian doors.

    The gardens sit predominantly to the south and west and are laid to lawn with shrub beds and borders and a majestic Scots pine tree. The south facing terrace has a timber arbour with climbing plants, and provides an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. The terrace continues around the house to the second conservatory and where a pedestrian gate to Hitchen Hatch Lane is located within the white washed wall.

I have always been fascinated and delighted by this truly one off house in such a great spot in the town. It's a wonderful opportunity for the next owners.
