Situated on an attractive private cul de sac close to transport links and open countryside, this deceptively spacious family home offers over 3600 square feet of accommodation (including pool house) and offers a fabulous opportunity for modernisation. The property is built in a chalet bungalow style and has been extended over the years to create a wonderful property with a versatile layout.
Internally the property is traditionally appointed with a number of original/period features, including exposed beams, a brick fireplace and attractive leadlight windows. With its generously sized rooms and high ceilings, the property has excellent potential as a family home – achievable with some cosmetic updates to the décor. A feature of the property is the large indoor swimming pool affording year-round swimming, which is further enhanced by lovely views over the garden and a separate sauna. In the warmer months, sliding glass doors can be opened from the pool house to create a fantastic leisure space.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed via a central entrance hallway, comprising: a 32ft family room and foyer, study, sitting room, dining room, country-style kitchen and downstairs bedroom. A bathroom completes the ground floor.
The first floor accommodation is equally spacious and includes a 20ft master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
