Full description

A rather pleasant individual linked detached family home offering well proportioned rooms, flooded with plenty of natural light and enjoying a high street location in this bustling village yet benefiting from plenty of privacy. The property was built in 1960 in the grounds of the pharmacy, which our current selling family ran and has been a very much cherished home since then. The property is presented to the market in very good condition with its own very distinctive style, boasting hand made bespoke kitchen units, storage cupboards and display shelves in the sitting room, book cases in the reception hall and built in wardrobes in the main bedroom with overhead storage cupboards portraying themselves as old fashioned suite cases. In keeping with the build era the property has the advantage of large windows, good ceiling heights and parquet flooring to the main reception hall and sitting room. In addition, there is uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating. It is absolutely vital that this charming home be viewed to be fully appreciated and to see how it would suit the next lucky owners' needs.
