SILVERTHORNE HOUSE is a large detached Victorian dwelling C1800.  Built of local stone and brick with characteristic elevations under a clay tiled roof that provides versatile and adaptable living accommodation arranged over two floors, creating a deceptively spacious and comfortable character home.
The house has been improved and well maintained by the present owners and benefits from UPVC double glazing, gas central heating and a fabulous fitted kitchen whilst retaining many character features and details including antique pine period doors, exposed beams and cosy stone fireplaces with wood burning stove.
Some areas of the house offer scope and  potential to further improve by way of cosmetic redecoration.
The house enjoys a convenient location close to the bustling town centre with its good range of local shops, supermarkets, doctor and dentist surgeries, public houses, restaurants and churches, schools, bus stops and mainline railway station.
Set within its own generous enclosed gardens with ample parking and garage, an early viewing is highly recommended to secure this desirable property.
