EQUESTRIAN - Enjoying an enviable level plot set alongside open countryside providing lovely rural views to the north. The plot currently has residential and equestrian usage and contains a chalet style bungalow believed to have been built around the 1970s alongside a range of outbuildings. The vendors have carried out significant improvements and upgrades to the property in their time of ownership but it is considered that scope exists to extend, redevelop or replace the existing property subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents and permissions.
The very well presented, detached house is well screened from the road and extends to over 1650 sq.ft. comprising three bedrooms, including a generous master bedroom situated on the ground floor. The bedrooms are served by two bathrooms, one on the first floor and one on the ground. In addition there is also a cosy sitting room with cassette style fireplace and a spacious open plan dining/family room semi-open plan to the kitchen and providing an outlook on to the gardens. A study area completes the accommodation.
