Full description

A truly delightful character home offering picture prefect kerb appeal from the outside with a rendered facade beneath a pantile roof. There is a delightful front garden with the added bonus of off road parking for 2-3 vehicles to the left hand side of the property and an enclosed low maintenance garden to the rear. The property offers three good sized bedrooms, luxury fitted en-suite and separate family bathroom together with two principal reception rooms, a Shortland fitted dining kitchen leading into a dining/utility area and with the added benefit of a third reception room which is adjacent to a second hallway with a cloakroom off, enabling this area to be used as a home office/studio space or annex. The property is beautifully presented throughout and has central heating with timber framed sealed unit double glazed windows, with many of the front windows not only having attractive leaded inserts but also cast iron style monkey tail handles, all adding to the overall character including a log burner in the lounge, latch doors and feature exposed timber beams. Properties of this nature are incredibly rare to the market and an internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate the outstanding and deceptively spacious accommodation.
