Property Ref: 53903

This enchanting character semi-detached residence was constructed in the 1930's and sits in an enviable semi-rural location within magnificent gardens of approximately 1/3 of an acre and with open views across open countryside.

The house boasts an abundance of character features, and has been tastefully enhanced by the addition of a contemporary extension to the rear aspect. The accommodation now comprises entrance hall, cloakroom, lounge with log burner, family room with fireplace, stunning kitchen dining room, and a useful utility / boot room. To the first floor the central landing has access to the magnificent main bedroom with vaulted ceiling, en-suite shower room, and a Juliet balcony with outstanding open views to the rear. There are two further generous double bedrooms to this floor and an enclosed turning staircase leading to a 24' attic bedroom, once again with an outlook over open countryside.

Outside, the plot extends to approximately 1/3 of an acre. There is a deep front garden with shingle driveway providing parking for several cars and leading to a detached timber double garage with accommodation above, ideal for use as an office, or even for conversion into an annexe (subject to normal consents). The rear garden is wide and deep and is laid mainly to lawn and mature shrubs, fenced boundaries and a wide patio.
