POTENTIAL CHAIN-FREE SALE Enjoying a wonderful sunny rear outlook over its own garden to a meadow beyond, a 4 bedroom detached modern house of impressive family proportions and careful presentation at the end of a small cul-de-sac on Alton's favoured Western outskirts - The Butts green and Ackender Wood nearby.

Description 
Its distinctive attributes include the South Westerly facing garden and rear aspect, standard of repair, and generous sized accommodation with particularly good dimensions to all 4 bedrooms and both a bathroom and en-suite shower room. There is uPVC double glazing, replacement coving to the ceilings where stated below, white panelled internal doors with satin finished handles, cavity wall insulation, a wealth of power sockets and a gas heating system with radiators, most of those upstairs having individual thermostatic controls.
