A fabulous opportunity to purchase a handsome red brick Edwardian farmhouse sitting in grounds extending to about an acre and offering over 4000 sq. ft (375 sq. m) of accommodation. The property boasts four double bedrooms, four single bedrooms and four reception rooms as well as retains many character features, which include some original fireplaces in the bedrooms, high ceilings and original tiling to the halls. The property was built in 1903 and has been an enjoyed home to our sellers for the last ten years. During this time it has been improved with nearly all windows being replaced by uPVC double glazing, solar panels have been unintrusively installed in the garden and have helped towards reducing energy bills and an air heat sourced pump fitted for the central heating. In addition, the internal walls have all benefitted from extra insulation. This splendid property offers comfortable accommodation in its current condition and presents the chance to create a home to one's own taste and design. The property would lend itself to existing, growing or merging families with its multi-functional space or even as an income potential to be run as a bed and breakfast. There are many possibilities to explore. The outdoor area could also provide for a taster of the Good Life with plenty of space for chickens and growing vegetables or for families who enjoy the fresh air with plenty of room for children and pets to let off steam safely. A viewing is necessary to really appreciate this property and its potential and an early viewing is strongly urged.
