DESCRIPTION At first glance this home may look like many others built in the 1970s, but inside it is very very different. Set on a cul-de-sac location, this superb four bedroom detached home features very generous sized living areas, ideal for family space or entertaining. The property has been extended by the previous owners to incorporate a large luxury fitted kitchen leading to an extensive family dining room (nearly 6m x 5.2m) and a further double aspect living room. (We understand from our vendor that a second floor could be created on the existing extension, subject to the necessary planning consents). The principal reception rooms open onto a lovely decked area ideal for alfresco dining in summer months. The dwelling is sold with a wealth of features, including double glazing, gas central heating, recessed lighting, some under floor heating, downstairs WC, downstairs wet room (including WC and shower), family bathroom and solar PV panels which generate electricity.

Outside, the home features a generous sized driveway and front garden, whilst at the rear can be found a large garden (with summer house) with views towards Yealmpton and the distant countryside. An overall viewing is highly advised to appreciate this home, which is just over 1,700 square foot in size.
