This fantastic property has been loved by the same family for over four decades and offers a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future.

It sits in a quiet and friendly location with excellent schools, superb transport links, woodland, and open countryside on its doorstep.

A lawned front garden with a driveway that fronts the detached garage to the side, sets it back from the road.

Its covered entrance door opens into the entrance hallway, with a useful cloakroom cupboard and under stair storage cupboard to keep the space clutter free.

First on the left is the spacious living room which is flooded with light from its front aspect bay window. A stone enclosed fireplace adds warmth in the colder months and an open aspect to the dining room offers plenty of family living and entertaining space.

The dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, has a large window bringing in garden views as you dine.

Next door, the kitchen is brightened by a large window over the sink and a glazed door to the side giving garden access. There are storage units top and bottom and larder cupboards, one housing the boiler. Bosch integrated appliances include a dishwasher, washing machine, hob, and oven and there is plenty of countertop space.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles with fitted cupboards.

At the rear is the bathroom with a panel enclosed bath with shower attachment above and two windows that draw in lots of natural light.

Outside to the rear, the sunny south facing garden has an expanse of lawn edged with a variety of plants and flowers. There is a paved terrace at the rear of the house, perfect for summer dining, a paved pathway to the rear and a wooden sleeper enclosed vegetable patch. Hedging and fencing safely enclose the space for children and pets and a detached garage and a greenhouse provide plenty of storage options.

This bright welcoming home is nicely decorated and immaculately presented, however, it also offers fantastic development opportunities. A must see!
