DESCRIPTION Believed to date from the late 1800's with later additions, this charming, detached property enjoys a tucked away location set well back from the road with a mature garden, a summerhouse providing a home office, a garage and gated driveway providing parking.

Arranged over two floors, this lovely home has well-proportioned accommodation with many period features throughout, including fireplaces and stained glass and sash windows. To the ground floor the attractive entrance porch with tiled floor opens to the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and the sitting room and study/family room both with fireplaces, leading off. To the rear, forming the heart of the house, is the superb open plan kitchen/dining room with utility and cloakroom leading off and French doors to the garden. The open plan continues from the dining area to the sitting room and provides an excellent family living and entertaining space. To the first floor are the four charming bedrooms, an en-suite and a family bathroom.

Approached over a gated gravelled driveway with a garage to the side, the property sits centrally in its plot with mature gardens enjoying both south and westerly aspects. Within the garden is a part insulated Summerhouse providing a home office with storage room to the side. In addition, the garage provides good storage space and has the benefit of planning permission (recently lapsed) for conversion into an annexe providing the potential for several uses.
