Driveway and Gardens
The property has a wide separate driveway to the far side of the garage. The driveway leads to a generous enclosed courtyard area with plenty of additional vehicle parking and turning space in front of the two garage doors.
What you do not immediately realise is how generous and private the rear curtilage of the property actually is. There is an immediate lawned section with a flagged sitting area. Beyond here you enter a large and secluded rear garden which over the years has been used for growing vegetables and produce for the kitchen. There are raised beds, a greenhouse and a particularly large timber workshop building with light and power installed. To the left hand side at the rear area is "Garden Cottage"
When the current owner purchased Beech House approximately 15 years ago this building was a very large garage structure used by the previous owners as a workshop for restoring classic cars and motorcycles. Planning Permission was obtained by the present vendor to formally convert the building into a true bungalow for her daughter to occupy. Time moved on and within the recent past the bungalow has successfully been let [through a specialist agency]as holiday accommodation, providing an excellent revenue stream. This property therefore offers various options for future owners. It is extremely well equipped and comfortable. It features exposed tongue/grooved flooring throughout, is fully double glazed in PVCu [golden oak frames & doors] and has a smart fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. It has its own combination gas central heating boiler.
