The property which was built, so we understand, in the early 1960s is stone faced under a tiled roof. A generous entrance hall with coats' cupboard leads to the sitting room which is light and bright and includes a wood burning stove and Georgian style glazed sliding doors to the dining room. The dining room has French windows to the garden terrace and an archway leading to the kitchen. The kitchen includes a full range of wall and base units and an integrated fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. A door from here leads to the conservatory and rear terrace which is a super place to sit and enjoy views over the garden. The master bedroom has a shower room en suite and there are two further bedrooms; one of which has the additional benefit of fitted wardrobes. There is a well appointed family bathroom and an additional separate w.c. The roof space is the same footprint as the house and offers potential for development subject to the usual planning consents.
Garden and grounds
Located in an elevated position with attractive views over neighbouring roof tops, the property is approached via a tarmac drive through a five bar gate where there is access to the double garage and driveway parking. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and includes some mature shrubs and small trees as well as borders for flowers. The rear garden which may be accessed from both sides of the property, includes a shed and a large area of paved terrace providing a choice of places for outside entertainment. This area of the garden has been strengthened by some underpinning. There is also a generous sized lawn and beds and borders which are well stocked with a variety of shrubs, trees and flowers. Steps and paths lead down to further areas containing a number of fruit trees and a former vegetable garden. There are mature boundaries of yew and laurel which have been well maintained. In total, the gardens extend to just under half an acre.
