Full description


We have pleasure in offering to the market this deceptive individual single storey detached brick and ironstone Period conversion which offers a generous level of versatile accommodation which approaches 2,000 sq ft.

The property is tucked away in a quiet backwater down a private lane situated behind gated access which leads onto a substantial driveway and double garage with private well stocked gardens to three sides.

When originally converted the property clearly had a great deal of thought and attention to detail, creating a spacious and interesting home with a great deal of character. The current vendors have reconfigured the main living/dining kitchen creating a wonderful open plan light and airy space, benefitting from windows to two elevations as well as attractive clear glass lantern to the reception area flooding this space with light which will undoubtedly become the hub of the home.

The property is large enough to accommodate families, offering three double bedrooms with ensuite to the master and separate family bathroom. Three further reception areas create a formal dining room and well-proportioned sitting room benefitting from windows to four elevations, and a study offering potential for a fourth bedroom. In addition there is a useful utility leading off the beautifully appointed farmhouse style kitchen as well as a separate cloakroom.

The property is offered to the market with no upward chain and viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
