Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This property must have one of the best views in the area with a breath-taking vista across the Marshwood Vale and beyond. The property is an extended end of terrace house offering surprisingly large accommodation which is attractively presented throughout. On the first floor, there are four good sized bedrooms, several enjoying views with the master bedroom having the best uninterrupted view of all. This is a spacious bedroom with a beautifully fitted en-suite shower room. The large family bathroom has also been re-fitted with an attractive contemporary suite to include a bath and separate shower. The ground floor accommodation comprises a pretty country kitchen, (with utility room off), opening to a dining/living space with wood burning stove. Off the hall is a ground floor w.c. and at the end of the hallway, a door opens into a spacious living room, where the eye is drawn immediately to the full height windows and door at the end which provide the most wonderful views. Outside, to the front is parking for several vehicles and to the back and side a good sized garden, with formal areas as well as vegetable growing beds, greenhouse and shed. There is yet another bonus with this property, namely the solar PV panels, fitted before the Feed-in-Tariff was reduced and which produce an income around £1400 pa. Central heating is fired by a recently installed oil boiler, which also runs the hot water. N.B. The property is subject to a Rural Housing Restriction as detailed in Section 157 of the Housing Act 1985. Please ask at our office for further information.

The property was extended in 1996 by a previous owner. Improvements made in recent years include: rewiring, replumbing, new front door, new bathroom and shower room fittings, updated kitchen and redecoration throughout. New oil fired boiler and oil tank (Sept 17). Windows are double glazed, there are good levels of loft insulation and cavity wall insulation. Along with the new boiler installation, a HIVE system was put in place allowing remote access to the heating. In addition, solar PV panels have been fitted to the property, which means that any electricity used during sunshine hours is free plus the grid also makes a payment for all electricity generated, which results in a pay back to the customer (around £1,200 - £1,400 per year). N.B. The property is subject to a Rural Housing Restriction as detailed in Section 157 of the Housing Act 1985. Please ask at our office for further information.
