Property Details

4 2 2
A rare opportunity to purchase a spacious four double bedroom, semi detached family home with over 2600 square feet (244 sq m) of accommodation, sitting in about a third of an acre and enjoying a rural location with fabulous views of Duncliffe Wood and surrounded by fields. The property was formerly a milking parlour, which was initially converted into holiday homes and in more recent times has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for more than sixteen years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with replacement uPVC double glazed windows about four years ago and an extra bedroom was created from the first floor balcony. This wonderful home benefits from underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators to the first floor and wholly owned solar panels that provide an income. The property offers an easy to use layout with large bright rooms, all of which enjoy a degree of rural outlook and will certainly get the nod of approval from many potential buyers and satisfy many needs. A great home for an existing or growing family with plenty of internal space and generously sized outside space with plenty of room for children and pets to let off steam.
