Full description


An opportunity to acquire an interesting individual detached home which offers a deceptive level of accommodation having been extended to create a flexible home which offers the majority of accommodation to the ground floor with further bedroom and bathroom in the eaves.

The property offers up to three bedrooms, one of which is currently utilised as a home office, with the master suite located on the ground floor comprising large double bedroom with adjacent ensuite. The main living accommodation comprises a large open plan L shaped living/dining kitchen which has seen a programme of modernisation with a generous range of contemporary units with pleasant aspect into the rear garden.

To the first floor there is a further double bedroom and bathroom which has been modernised with a three piece white suite. In addition the property benefits from UPVC double glazing, gas central heating.

There is no doubt one of the main features of the property is its stunning location situated on the outskirts of this well served village on a substantial plot which approaches half an acre with excellent open views and ample off road car standing. In addition between one and two acres of paddock land could be available by separate negotiation, making this a rare opportunity to acquire a home with equestrian potential.

Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
