Gorteen is peacefully situated on a no through lane in the
heart of the village of Chetnole. The property was built in
the mid 1980s of attractive re-constituted stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof and is set well back in its plot. The property has remained in the same ownership since it was built and would now benefit from a programme of updating, creating a wonderful family home. This a rare opportunity to buy a superb village property in probably one of the best locations backing onto the village playing fields and church.
The property is entered via a tiled porch with door leading
to a most welcoming entrance hall off which are the main
reception rooms as well as a cloakroom.The double aspect sitting room has a stone open fireplace and sliding doors lead to the conservatory with tiled flooring and doors and a wonderful aspect over the rear gardens. From the entrance hall are doors to the dining room, study and kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the rear garden and fitted with a range of basic wall and base units including integral double oven and hob. From the kitchen there is access to the utility room with further base units and stainless steel sink and drainer, plumbing and space for washing machine, oil fired boiler and a door to the garden. The first floor landing has a cupboard housing the hot water tank and doors to the four bedrooms, all of which have built in wardrobes. There is a family bathroom and en-suite bathroom.
Overall the accommodation is well arranged and ideal for modern day family living.
The gardens form a particular feature of this property and
to the front a gravelled driveway /turning area leads to the
double garage with electric up and over doors and power/light connections. The front garden is an attractive area of level lawn with deep and well stocked borders and a number of mature shrubs and trees. There is access to the rear garden from both sides of the property.
The main gardens are to the rear of the property and have
been beautifully designed with ease of maintenance in mind and well stocked with a variety of shrubs, fruit trees and evergreens giving colour throughout the season. Adjacent to the conservatory is a patio area with raised stone beds. There is also a useful timber garden store/studio and pedestrian gate out to the playing fields, where you can also walk over to the church and to the River Wriggle. Overall the setting and tranquillity of the garden provides the perfect setting for this property.
