Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase a spacious detached family home ideally located on the fringe of the village with the countryside on the doorstep yet within walking distance to the main line train station, post office, doctors surgery, village shop and primary school. We believe that the property was built in 1976 and has been a much cherished family home to our sellers for the last thirty four years during which time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with an addition, not long after the property was built by a previous owner and a further extension by our sellers. In addition our sellers also had Upvc double glazing fitted, new kitchen units and oil fired central heating installed in 2009. About four years ago solar panels where fitted to the property and provide free daytime electricity with any extra going to the grid. The panels where a twenty five year lease. The property must be viewed to truly appreciate its homeliness and comfortable rooms which do offer flexibility as to their usage.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of light welcoming entrance hall, sitting room with feature fireplace and opening into the dining area with plenty of space for the whole family on those special occasions. There is a good sized kitchen with built in double oven and hob plus an integrated fridge, utility/boot room with door to the garage and rear garden. In addition there is a ground floor cloakroom. On the first floor there is the family bathroom and four double sized bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes and the master benefiting from an en-suite shower room. From the first floor all rooms boast some degree of outlook over countryside. Outside there is generous parking, garage with roll up door and good sized front and rear gardens with good privacy.
