There is also the opportunity to extend into the large loft space - subject to the necessary permissions. The property also benefits from hardwood double glazing and gas fired central heating. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate the easy to use layout and its location, which is within walking distance to the doctor and dentist surgeries, pharmacy and public house - serving food.
