Anvil House is an interesting individual detached double fronted home occupying what is a particularly generous plot by modern standards, located off a pleasant lane close the heart of this highly regarded and much sought after Vale of Belvoir village. The property offers a versatile level of accommodation extending to approximately 1,600 sq ft comprising of an initial entrance porch leading into an inner hallway and in turn two main receptions including a full width living room which extends to over 28 ft in length with two bay windows to the front. The second reception is open plan to a breakfast kitchen creating a fantastic open plan L-shaped space generous by modern standards and benefits from access out into the rear garden. In addition there is a rear entrance porch with ground floor cloaks off and to the first floor are three double bedrooms, the master offering ensuite facilities and a separate well-proportioned family bathroom.

The property has been well maintained over the years but is likely to be ready for a certain level of modernisation based on todays requirements but offers considerable potential for the creation of a superb family orientated home and subject to consent could be extended to increase the accommodation further having little impact on the outdoor space.

In addition to the internal accommodation the property occupies a generous plot with an initial gated entrance sweeping on to a large gravelled driveway which provides more than adequate off road parking and in turn to the detached double garage. The main garden is laid to lawn and enclosed by established hedging, in total the plot extends to approximately one fifth of an acre.

Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and current accommodation but also the onward potential of this interesting individual detached home.
