Full description

A spacious four/five bedroom detached house with many character features offering flexible accommodation with numerous configuration options, either as a substantial family home, or family home with annexe unit for multi-generational living, or home and income opportunity.

The accommodation's current arrangement offers on the ground floor an entrance lobby, W.C., feature entrance hall with doors to accommodation and stairs to the first floor. 17'3 reception one, and main contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with French doors to garden. Further to that, the vendors currently utilise a section of the ground floor as an 'integrated' Annexe which comprises of a 16'3 ground floor bedroom five with feature contemporary bathroom suite (or reception two), which has it's own contemporary kitchen (or reception four), utility room with W.C. and 13'1 reception three with multi-fuel burner and French doors leading to it's own garden area. The left hand side path (outside) could give totally independent access to this section, however it is internally connected to the house, and all of the original doorways are in place which would make bringing the house back to it's original floor plan a relatively easy option.

On the first floor there is 16'7 bedroom two (which is currently used as an additional first floor reception), 16'3 master bedroom with an en-suite (with feature roll top bath, W.C., wash hand basin and separate shower), 13'7 bedroom three, family bathroom, separate W.C., and 11'11 bedroom four.

There is also a large loft (pictured) which has the potential to be converted into an additional two bedrooms and bathroom STPP offering even more options for this versatile house.

Externally there is a front garden with driveway parking for several vehicles, and enclosed rear garden with a useful 23'4 workshop/studio which has been insulated, plaster-boarded and has power light.

The property also benefits from gas fired central heating, majority uPVC double glazing, and character features including oversized door frames, original doors, some original architrave, generous ceiling heights, and some original exterior architectural detailing.
