Standing in a lovely rural position on the edge of Dapple Heath, countryside walks and views abound, yet Abbots Bromley is within a few minutes drive.

The property, which has been sympathetically extended in more recent times, is set in extensive and established gardens with a wonderful variety of shrubs, plants and trees. The accommodation has LPG central heating and there is an array of outbuildings which could be put to a variety of uses.

The large Playroom/Games Room has built-in window seating, open trussed roof area, useful storage space and a spiral stair down to the ground floor bedroom.

Outside
Approached by a curving driveway and gravelled car parking area, the property immediately displays the wonderful mature and colourful gardens, with lots of walkways, established trees, a pond and a bridge over a stream, a real haven of relaxation and intrigue.

To the side of the property, a drive leads to a large open front Storage Barn, a Single Garage (5.4m x 2.9m) and brick Garden Store, all with power and lights, as have the brick Workshops (4.5m x 5.5m x 4.5m x 2.9m).

Nestling in the rear gardens is a Summerhouse (with power and lighting) and beyond the formal gardens are more Storage Sheds, Greenhouses, Garden Sheds, a Poly Tunnel and an area of raised beds for herbs and vegetables, Tack Room and Hay Store.

Adjacent to the property are two large Paddocks and a smaller fenced area (currently goats grazing area) and it is believed the property could be a smallholding, indeed currently it has a DEFRA holding number for the goats.

Other Information

Land
If further land is required, we are informed by the vendors there is a possibility of renting further adjacent land and if less land is required there is also a possibility of letting to an adjacent landowner.

Please Note
This property on the internet is shown as on the flood plain. Actually it is above it. However the current owners have taken advice and levels from the Environment Agency and built proper flood protection. Insurance has never been a problem.

Tenure
Freehold (Purchasers are recommended to satisfy themselves as to tenure via their legal representative).

Services
Mains water and electricity, septic tank drainage and LPG central heating are believed to be connected to the property but purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.

Solar Panels
The vendors installed an efficient solar heating enhancement which not only reduces the electricity costs at the property but also provides an increasing financial return for about 20 years. The vendors have documentation from their electricity supplier to enable Transfer of Ownership of the generation unit and future FiT payments to the new owner should they wish.
