DESCRIPTION
This substantial detached family house was constructed by local builders of high repute, Charliers, circa 1960 and has been the much loved home of the current owners for around 53 years. During their period of ownership they have maintained the property well, thoughtfully extended it and created an enchanting garden. It now presents an opportunity to acquire a home in a very sought after location where the new owner can, in time, add their own mark to the house, maybe even extend it should additional accommodation be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained). The existing accommodation is of particularly comfortable proportions and is arranged to comprise a spacious entrance hall, through sitting/ dining room with doors opening to the garden, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, side lobby and storage areas and cloakroom. The first floor provides three comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom.

The outside space is particularly generous with the rear garden measuring in the region of 100ft in length by around 48ft in width. It has been lovingly planted to provide seclusion, year round interest and a very pleasing environment in which to relax and entertain alfresco. To the front of the house there is a driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles and access to the attached garage.
