A substantial detached family house with an additional one bed annexe, which is being sold for the first time in almost thirty years, located in the centre of Hartley village, with the convenience of local amenities close by and offers huge potential for any growing family looking for a long term home.
Planning permission was previously granted to further extend the property. We understand these have now lapsed, however, the current owners are in the process of reapplying for one of the applications for a single storey rear extension under reference 17/01123/PAE.
The house is perfectly set back off the road and screened by a brick wall and railings, with a sweeping gravel driveway leading to a double garage and plenty of additional parking. Internally the house offers bright and spacious accommodation throughout with many rooms benefitting from double or triple aspect windows with views of the impressive garden, which is one of the largest plots in the area. The house was extended in 1990, and recently further planning permission was also granted for a two storey extension under the permitted development laws. There is also planning permission for a large single storey extension to the rear of the property which would add over 50 square metres of accommodation. This wonderful house has been a cherished family home for the last three decades and is now being sold with no forward chain, an early viewing is recommended to appreciate the accommodation and potential on offer.
The front door opens into a good-sized porch which in turn leads to the entrance hall. There are stairs leading to the first floor and solid oak flooring. There is a boiler cupboard and a fully tiled downstairs cloakroom. To the left is a dining room with triple aspect windows, a coal effect gas fire and a fitted carpet.
The kitchen is fitted with cream Clarion wall and base units with marble wall tiling and a solid wood worktop over incorporating a stainless steel sink and drainer unit and a breakfast bar. There is an integrated fridge and an integrated oven with a 5 ring gas hob and extractor hood over. Off the kitchen, a utility room is fitted with more matching units with space for further appliances and there is a door leading to the garden. Tiled flooring continues from the kitchen and utility into the 22ft double glazed conservatory which is accessed from the kitchen and has a wonderful view of the garden.
In the main living room, the inglenook fireplace with a multi fuel burning stove takes centre stage. There is a fitted carpet, double aspect windows and double doors lead outside to a generous paved terrace perfect for al fresco dining in the summer months.
A study with fitted carpet completes the ground floor accommodation in the main house, this has a door to a covered walkway which leads to the double garage and annexe. The garage has two remote up-and-over doors, and mains plumbing with a wash hand basin and WC. The annexe would be ideal for accommodating a relative or an Au Pair. This is self-contained and consists of a spacious living/bedroom overlooking the garden and an en-suite shower room.
Upstairs, in the main house, the generous first floor landing has a window overlooking the garden. The second bedroom benefits from triple aspect windows and there are two further double bedrooms, one with a built-in wardrobe. The master bedroom extends to 19ft and has an en-suite shower room as well as built in wardrobes and double aspect windows. The family bathroom is a good size with a tiled floor and a white suite comprising a corner Jacuzzi bath, tiled shower cubicle, a wash hand basin, bidet and WC.
The level rear garden extends to approximately 1.4 acres and is a most delightful feature of the property, mostly laid to lawn with plenty of space for the children to run around and let off steam! There is a paved terrace running adjacent to the back of the house and a large raised deck with a six person hot tub* and BBQ area ideal for entertaining. There is also a wide variety of different fruit trees including a Victoria plum, Apple and Greengage as well as a Walnut tree.
