Property Details

5 3 4
An opportunity to purchase an individually designed detached family home offering flexible room usage and boasting in excess of 2600 square feet (250 sq m) of living space. The property has five double bedrooms and is situated down a private lane, set in good sized grounds that adjoin fields and is within walking distance of local amenities, which include a public house - The White Lion, garage with convenience store, church and a primary school. The property was built in 1999 and has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for about twenty years. During this time the garage has been incorporated into the main building to provide a large ground floor family room and main bedroom suite - on the first floor. This also provides the potential to create a separate annexe for a dependant relative or even as an Airbnb to provide an income. The property benefits from double glazing, oil fired central heating with some rooms having underfloor heating and an air recycling system to the original part of the house. This delightful home has plenty of space for an established or growing family and has scope to mark it to one's own taste, as and when required. A viewing is an absolute necessity to truly appreciate what it has to offer and how the next family would fit.
