This handsome detached house is believed to have originally comprised three smaller cottages which were amalgamated and remodelled in the 1950's. It now exhibits many typical features of that period, including well-proportioned reception rooms with Crittall windows and parquet flooring. It offers light and airy accommodation with a most impressive reception hall with beamed ceiling and two large reception rooms, both enjoying an attractive outlook over the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a good size, with oil fired Rayburn and a traditional shelved pantry. Doors open to the conservatory and rear porch and utility room/cloakroom. On the first floor can be found four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has a combination of electric heating with two additional radiators, which we are advised are heated by the Rayburn within the kitchen. The property is mostly secondary double glazed.
