The House

Prospect House is a wonderful spacious family home. Originally dating back to the 1930’s the house still retains many of the original characteristics from when the house was built, these include high ceilings, bay windows and the stain glass, all of which are synonymous with the era.

In recent years the property has benefitted from the addition of a two bedroom annexe, this would suit those looking for separate accommodation for a dependent relative or indeed combing two household together.

Upon entering the property you are greeted by the reception hall, with the original flooring from the 1930’s. Beyond the reception hall are the snug, the sitting room and the dining room. As you would expect with a property of this vintage all the principal rooms are generous in size, also on the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of matching wall and floor units and the gas fired Stanley which provides central heating and hot water. The ground floor is further enhanced by the shower room.

Proceeding to the first floor, there are four generous double bedrooms, three of which share the family bathroom which comprises a three piece suite. The master bedroom has its own en-euite shower room.

Attached to the main house is a two bedroom annexe, the annexe has a modern kitchen/dining room, a living room and a WC on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.


Prospect House also has a range of out buildings, one of which is currently being used as a workshop, however, subject to the necessary consents this and the adjoin workshop could be converted for residential use with garaging.

At the bottom of the garden, there are further outbuildings which are currently being used for storage, the garden itself is predominantly laid to lawn. The driveway at the front of the property leads to the rear and allows for ample parking.
