Property Description

An exceptionally pretty cottage style home which requires considerable updating throughout. It sits on a level plot of approximately one quarter acre within a much favoured location.

This cottage style home offers exceptionally pretty elevations and is in a superb location set amongst considerably larger and more valuable homes. It does offer an exceptional opportunity to modernise or replace (subject to consents). A property such as this in such a favoured location is a rare find today.

The house is approached via a generous driveway with a lawned, lightly wooded and well secluded front garden. There is space for parking a number of vehicles and access to the garage.

A solid wood front door leads to the entrance hall with secondary glazed windows. The stairs which rise to the first floor have a coats cupboard and storage below.

Ahead is the lounge and dining room. These interconnecting rooms feature a beamed ceiling and the double aspect lounge has an attractive brick fireplace with a brick hearth and a timber mantle. There are also double glazed sliding patio doors which provide a lovely view of the southerly backing garden.

Also approached from the hallway is the third bedroom or study which looks out onto the garden at the front.

The kitchen has a range of wooden base and wall mounted units, a four ring electric hob and oven, space and plumbing for dishwasher and an under-unit fridge. There is also a small fitted breakfast table, a floor mounted gas boiler and a traditional shelved larder. Interestingly there is a servant bell system still in place which is a lovely, but untested, feature.

Beyond the kitchen there is a further reception room which could be used as a breakfast room, family room or possibly a further bedroom.

On the first floor is a landing with a deep walk in airing cupboard and access to the two first floor bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. Each bedroom enjoys a double aspect and has fitted wardrobes.

Outside there is a private and south east backing rear garden which measures approximately 105' x 63' and the overall plot measures in excess of a quarter of an acre. There is a detached garage and a particularly generous driveway and front garden.

"I recently utilised the services of Nick to sell my property. The sale was north of GBP1m and I needed an agent who could help potential buyers to feel comfortable with a large investment of this nature. I did not need an agent that took the keys and then let the client wander around the premises before finally locking the door and leaving. Nick was very professional, dedicated and diligent in dealing with potential buyers and I had full confidence in his abilities. when we faced the inevitable challenges with the sale Nick proved to be a good communicator with all parties and demonstrated the highest integrity. The sale was completed on time and at the target price that we had agreed before the commencement of the process."
