Hilary's Estate Agents are pleased to offer for sale this exceptional property which offers 6 large bedrooms and masses of potential. The property is set within large gardens and has ample parking for numerous vehicles. It is set in a quiet and secluded area yet within easy reach of the motorway.

This outstanding property has much to offer for anyone that would relish a challenge. The rewards would be massive. The property is approached down a private lane off Sandy Lane. It appears on the right as you travel down the lane. The property has ample parking to the front for numerous vehicles and an attached garage which makes an ideal workshop. The garage accommodates the control for the solar panels which make this a very economical property to run - should save over a thousand pounds per year (The panels were purchased outright for around £15,000 and locked into a feed-in tariff early on in the scheme when incentives were very high. This means that not only is the free electricity available during the day but also the excess is fed back into the grid at a very favourable rate earning money for the home owner). The main body of the house is accessed via a UPVC door which also has access to the spacious cellar beside it via a large trap door - the cellar reaches under the main lounge, the hallway and the second utility room.

ENTRANCE PORCH: 1.60m x 1.50m or 5'3'' x 4'11''
This attractive porch has UPVC double glazed windows to the side and rear and a UPVC door to the front. There is a beautiful ceiling light and stunning original Victorian mosaic floor tiling. A further UPVC double glazed door leads through to the hallway.

This welcoming and spacious area benefits from the original Victorian spindle staircase with wooden rail which has stairs leading up to the first and second floors. The area has original coved ceiling, a central heating radiator and doors off to the downstairs cloakroom, the lounge, the dining room and the second utility room or washroom.
