***SUBJECT TO AN AGRICULTRAL TIE*** An opportunity to purchase a substantial detached family residence with five double bedrooms, boasting formal grounds and land, which extend to over fifteen acres and situated in a peaceful lane on the outskirts of the desirable village of South Cheriton. The bungalow was built about seventeen years ago by the current owner to meet their own needs and later extended upwards to provide a splendid principal bedroom suite with wonderful views over the land and a further double bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom. During the course of ownership the property had been extremely well maintained and benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout, gas fired central heating from a recently replaced boiler and new carpeting. This lovely home offers flexible accommodation with a well laid out that will certainly meet the approval of many other potential owners and offers plenty of space for an existing or growing family with generous outdoor space for children and pets to let off steam. A great place to expand from an existing small holding or perhaps, if eligible, a taste of the good life.
