Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached four bedroom house that was built early 20th century of traditional brick and slate construction. The house retains original features, which add to its charm, including the picture rails which run around many of the rooms and the dado rails in the entrance hall and landing. Many of the internal doors are also original and include locks with keys. A brick and timber conservatory has subsequently been added to the rear property. The property fronts onto Senna Lane and the rear faces a small court yard surrounded by a mixture of brick and timber framed outbuildings. The property sits on a 3.2 acre site. The house requires a scheme of refurbishment, upgrading and modernisation and offers the capacity to extend, subject to the necessary planning permission. The outbuildings offer considerable ancillary use and again subject to planning permission being granted could be used as an annexe/home office.

Externally the south facing gardens and grounds that are accessed through wrought iron gates have been well maintained offering privacy and seclusion. There is also a well in the courtyard. To the rear there is a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees and access to the rear paddock which could be used for the grazing of horses or livestock. Boundaries defined by hedges.

The extent of the property is outlined in red on the attached plan and a right of way over neighbouring land edged and hatched brown
