About this property

It has spacious and flexible accommodation and is in need of modernisation. There are many attractive period features throughout the property to include fabulous doors, an Inglenook fireplace and a picture window in what was once an artists studio but now is a perfect family/play room. There is also useful attic space which could become further bedrooms or office space and there is potential to extend to the side and/or rear (subject to planning). Externally there is parking for 3 cars in front of a DOUBLE GARAGE16'9"x16'7" (5.09x5.05), with a lovely wrap around garden to the front, side and rear.
