This enchanting, character semi-detached residence was constructed in the 1930’s and sits in an enviable semi-rural location within a generous plot of over ¼ acre and with open views across open countryside to the front and rear.
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 spacious double bedrooms to this floor, an elegant family bathroom, and an enclosed turning staircase leading to a 24’ attic bedroom, once again with an outlook over open countryside.
Outside, there is a deep front garden with a shingle driveway providing parking for several cars and leading to a detached timber double garage with accommodation above, ideal for use as an office, studio or even for conversion into an annexe (subject to normal consents). The rear garden is wide and deep and is laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs, fenced boundaries and a wide patio adjacent to the kitchen.
This unique family dwelling enjoys a fine combination of traditional yet modern living and a leading address in what is arguably one of the more premier locations in this area.
