Offset from the High Street the property has a gravel drive leading to the double garage and house and has room for multiple vehicles, as the current owner says ‘great for when having parties’. There are gardens mainly laid to lawn front, side and back and the house is situated next to open Green with woods behind offering a large degree of seclusion and a low-lying brook running at this end, fed from a nearby spring.

This well-proportioned home has a kitchen, dining room, triple aspect lounge, large study area, ground floor toilet and a double garage on the ground floor with four bedrooms (three doubles) above, one with an en-suite and a family bathroom. The property benefits from a newly installed Worcester Bosch gas boiler.

Outside there is a good sized lawned area to the front with mature shrubbery, hedging and a wall shielding the property from the road. This leads through a gate or hedging to the side garden which has a patio and the rear is an expansive mainly lawned area surrounded by mature hedging to the side with the woods behind where the small brook divides the garden with the woods. In the corner is a wooden summer house.

White uPVC windows and doors throughout apart from hardwood front and back doors. Although in good clean condition the house offers great scope to make it a home to your specification with the possibility of extending to the side and/or back.
