Built in 1946, with facing brick elevations and a tiled roof, the house has been substantially extended in more recent years, and benefits from cavity wall insulation, oil fired central heating system and UPVC double glazing.

It is set in an idyllic rural location, with many scenic walks close by, and tastefully decorated throughout. The house features a wood burning stove, a double glazed rear conservatory, a large double garage/workshop and a well stocked, private garden.

The reception hall has pine flooring which continues through to a dual aspect living room with wood burner, pine flooring, fitted shelving incorporating radiator cabinets, and double glazed patio doors to the front and rear elevations.

The kitchen/dining room has an oil fired Rayburn range cooker (which has a mantel above, 2 hotplates and an oven, and provides the central heating and hot water), units with solid oak doors, beech worktops, Belfast sink, electric induction hob, fitted larder cupboards and space for an appliance.

There is a separate utility room with units, sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, and space for fridge and freezer. The kitchen and utility room have linoleum flooring. A rear lobby acts as a coat/boot room and has a door to the garden, and access to a cloakroom (with WC and wash basin.)

The rear conservatory is built on a brick plinth, with UPVC double glazed windows and roof, French doors to the garden, and exposed pine floorboards.

The spacious first floor landing has a study area, and a retractable ladder to the roof space (which has power.)

The house is set back from the road, with a large front garden featuring lawns, a pond, 2 plum trees, 2 apple trees and a fig tree. Part of the front garden is owned by our clients but is designated as common land, and forms a woodland area.
