The accommodation is approached through a private entrance and staircase to the first floor where the main living room features a period fireplace and with views over the tree lined grounds. There is an adjacent dining kitchen fitted with a range of units and integrated appliances, study, double bedroom and shower room/WC. To the upper floor are three further bedrooms with interesting vaulted ceilings. One is ideal as a guest room with an en-suite. There is also a basement store room.

Externally there is ample parking within the driveway.

An unusual feature is the private mainly walled garden to the rear of generous size laid to lawn with surrounding flower beds and positioned to enjoy sunshine almost throughout the day.

East Downs Road is a little over a 1/2 mile walk into the village of Hale with its range of interesting shops, restaurants and wine bars and railway station and also lies within the catchment area of highly regarded primary and secondary schools.
