Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An internal inspection of this imposing mature detached house is most strongly recommended in order to appreciate the spacious room dimensions and beautiful standard of decoration to be found within. Built in the early nineteenth century, the property occupies a generous plot with a long rear garden and a delightful courtyard area which gives access to the useful outbuilding, which is currently used as a workshop, but also doubles as a bar for entertainment purposes. Above this there is a studio area; ideal for a hobbies room or for those who work from home. The house itself is located within walking distance of local shops, supermarkets and other local amenities.

An internal inspection is most strongly recommended to appreciate the tasteful standard of decoration to be found within. It has been recently re-decorated, many rooms re-plastered and the kitchen has been completely refitted, including a large range style cooker. There are three evenly proportioned reception rooms (including an Italian marble fireplace in the sitting room), two dry cellars and upstairs there are four bedrooms. The rear garden/courtyard is a real delight.
