We have pleasure in offering to the market this fascinating individual detached home which offers a versatile level of accommodation which including an outbuilding extends to approximately 1800 sq ft.
The accommodation comprises an initial entrance hall, three reception rooms, fitted kitchen, side entrance hall leading to cloakroom and utility. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master benefitting from ensuite facilities as well as separate family bathroom.
The property occupies a deceptive split level plot, set back from the road with large block set driveway and useful outbuilding providing garage and workshop space. The total plot extends to approximately a fifth of an acre and has been landscaped over the years providing three terraced areas all well stocked with established trees and shrubs and views up to the pretty village church to the north and superb panoramic aspect to the south across neighbouring properties and Vale countryside.
