Coming to the market for the first time in 45 years, this handsome detached property on the outskirts of this sought-after village stands in a generous and level plot. The principal ground floor accommodation radiates off a spacious entrance hall with a sitting room having French doors to the garden and a gas fire, a dining room and a kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke wall and base units and a quarry tile floor. On the first floor, there are three evenly sized bedrooms and a family bathroom whilst a ground floor utility room, a cloakroom and gardener's WC complete the accommodation.
Thought to date from 1910, the property has been lovingly maintained by our clients and now offers scope for a new owner to extend or refurbish the property to suit their own needs and preferences.
The house stands in gardens extending to around half an acre that are mainly laid to lawns interspersed with mature fruit trees. A five-bar gate from the road opens to a sweeping driveway leading to a generous parking area and bank of five garages. Adjoining the gardens is a one third acre orchard that offers a range of mature apple, pear and plum trees and is bordered by the River Twyver.
