SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Set in a quiet cul-de-sac, a few minutes' walk from the village centre, this home enjoys an idyllic semi-rural setting.
With a rich family history stretching back through the generations it has been loved and enjoyed in equal measure for decades. It is now time for a new family to create their own happy memories and put their own stamp on it.
Carefully maintained by its owners, its versatile accommodation is in very good decorative order and is full of light and sunshine in the summer and warm and cosy in the winter.
The gardens are pretty and well-maintained with open countryside views stretching as far as the eye can see ensuring you an unspoiled outlook over arable farmland and the hills beyond.
On your left, the living room has a focal fireplace and a front aspect window through which natural light floods in.
At the end of the hallway is the bright kitchen with the dining room conveniently accessed to the left and a lobby area with garden access, a deep storage cupboard and a workshop to the right.
Climbing the stairs, you pass a bathroom and separate cloakroom with a side landing window delivering glorious views. All three bedrooms are generously sized with a double bedroom at the back of the house having the best views of the garden and the countryside beyond.
Outside is a large sunny and broad garden laid mainly to lawn with mature hedging, shrubs and trees framing its boundaries. A hard surface pathway with some terracing wraps round the back of the house offering perfect summer evening alfresco dining or entertaining space.
This bright welcoming home is nicely decorated and immaculately presented enabling you to move in straight away. It is also, however, a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future.
There is planning approval for a two storey side extension (59 sq.m) to convert existing outbuildings into living and sleeping spaces to maximise the internal space and striking countryside views. Planning application reference No:SE/17/00830/HOUSE
