The house is believed to date from the 1930s, having been extended and enhanced to provide spacious family accommodation. Particular features include a triple aspect sitting room with wood burner and open plan kitchen/diner both with doors opening on to the rear garden, solar panels generating a yearly income and views to the rear across the garden and rooftops and out towards the school playing fields.
Grounds & Gardens
The property is approached via an in/out driveway which provides access to the garage. The gardens are mainly to the rear and have been terraced to provide a paved area connected to the house, with steps down to a pergola covered dining area and access to the private lawned area at the bottom. This area is well screened by laurel hedging and there are two sheds, one of which is fully insulated and is linked to power, light and telephone. This was previously used as a home office and is presented in good order.
