Sold STC £380,000

Property Description

Full description

A most beautifully presented and extremely well maintained detached family home enjoying a quiet location within walking distance to the primary school, countryside walks, garage with convenience store and local public house. This lovely property has been a much loved family home for the last twenty four years - since new - and offers good proportioned rooms with adaptable usage. During their time of ownership, the sellers have kept pace with modern trends and replaced the family bathroom with a contemporary shower room and replaced the en-suite bathroom with a stylish new suite as well as new kitchen units. The property has had a new gas fired central heating boiler installed in the last few years and also benefits from Upvc double glazed windows and doors, cavity wall insulation, additional loft insulation and is presented to the market in good decorative order. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to purchase this deligthful family home which equally would suit as a downsize without too much compromise or professionals with its easy communication links to major towns.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of welcoming reception hall, double aspect combined sitting and dining room with fireplace, snug, combined kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there is the family shower room and four generously sized bedrooms, two with built in wardrobes and the master benefiting from an en-suite bathroom. There are also some lovely views from the upper floor. Outside there is drive parking for at least two cars, double garage and a secluded and nicely sized rear garden with scope to landscaped to ones' own design.
