Property Details

3 4 3
An extended and much improved detached chalet style home offering well proportioned multi functional space and boasting some fabulous views from the first floor over countryside to Duncliffe Woods. The property is situated in the small village of East Stour, which has a public house, church, farm shop with restaurant. The village also boasts a village hall which hosts many events from cheese and wine evenings to pilates. We believe that the property was built in the late 1960's and has been home to our sellers for the last six years. During this time they have invested a great deal of time and effort to transform the property into a contemporary home, which will meet a great many potential buyers' needs. The property benefits from new oil fired central heating system as well as extending to the rear to provide a garden room with utility area. The property also benefits from double glazing throughout. It is imperative to view this home to truly appreciate its size and well laid out accommodation.
