Rarely does a home come to market that has been lived in by the previous owners for some 50 years, with SO MUCH POTENTIAL offering an abundance of scope to refurbish and modernise. Due to the design, the versatile accommodation is large with plenty of windows, allowing the natural light to stream through with views of the surrounding walled gardens. It truly is a blank canvas ready for a new owner to personalise and enjoy for this home’s next chapter.

Entry is via the front door into the Porch, from here there are double doors that open onto the welcoming Reception Hallway. Stairs lead to the first floor and there is also a ground floor Cloakroom. Separating the Reception Hall from the Kitchen/Breakfast Room is an inner study with under stairs storage.

The expansive Sitting Room is bright and airy with a dual aspect. Part beamed with an eye-catching central fireplace and parquet flooring that gives a respectful nod to yesteryear and is continued through the Dining Room as well. The Dining Room, in keeping with the design of this home, also has a fireplace and offers plenty of space for family dining and entertaining with extended family and friends.

The Kitchen Breakfast Room has a range of wall and base units with an electric hob and double oven. With a little imagination it’s not hard to see how this room could form the central hub of the home if utilised with the Dining Room or inner study. There is space for a fridge as well as plumbing for a dishwasher. The two pantry cupboards provide plenty of storage and a door leads out to the rear garden. The Utility Room is adjoined to the Garage and gives space for white goods and has plumbing fitted for a washing machine.

The first-floor landing has an airing cupboard and doors that lead to all rooms.

The Master Bedroom has a dual aspect with windows overlooking the front and side gardens. There is a double sized wardrobe positioned next to the fireplace with the added benefit of having an open en-suite that comprises a corner bath, w/c and a wash hand basin. Bedroom 2 is also a substantial bedroom with a fireplace and wardrobes.

The third bedroom is double in size with a store area and stairs that lead to the Attic Room. Additionally, there is a Dressing Area/En-suite shower room. Bedroom 4 is also a double room and Bedroom 5 could easily be transformed into a home office.

The Family Bathroom is fitted with a bath, wash hand basin and w/c.

The Attic Room is boarded and also has potential to be made into a usable space.

Externally the grounds extend around three sides of the home and are mainly laid to lawn with mature bushes. The gated driveway provides off road parking for numerous cars and gives access to the Double Garage.
