Property Details

3 2 2
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a substantial detached family home with three bedrooms - scope to re-instate the fourth bedroom, if required and boasting a peaceful and private location at the top of a cul de sac in a sought after area, which is within easy reach of the village's facilities. This splendid home sits in about a third of an acre, adjoining countryside on two sides and enjoys a westerly aspect to the rear. The property was built in the 1980s and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last thirty one years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with re-configurations that has enlarged the reception hall, sitting room, kitchen and created a dining room and large main bedroom. The heating system has been upgraded to gas fired central heating and the double glazing has been replaced with the attractive stone mullions still on show. This delightful property offers well proportioned bright rooms that will certainly go a long way to satisfy the needs of many potential buyers' needs. A viewing is absolutely vital to really appreciate what this home has to offer as well as the location, which is within walking distance to a local pub, village centre with local shop and a little further on is the village hall and doctors surgery with pharmacy. There is also a church, another pub and a highly rated primary school.
