About this property

An impressively spacious family home that offers a great amount of flexibility. This could be an ideal property for two families coming together as well as a good development opportunity now that consent has been granted to make this two self contained homes in their own right under planning reference 18/12099/FUL. The annexe which could serve a dependant relative or live-in nanny also could be an ideal air 'B & B' or Holiday Let providing a possible income stream. Internally the main entrance lobby (which is the only part of the property that is attached to next door) opens through to a country cottage style kitchen/breakfast room with tiled flooring. The long inner hall leads off to a formal dining room and a splendid dual aspect sitting room with bay window and feature 'Jetmaster' open fire. There is also a study and three charming rooms spanning the width of the rear elevation which comprise a garden room with log burner, a conservatory and a sun room (used for the summer months). There are four double bedrooms in the main house with an en suite off off the ground floor bedroom, and a family bathroom with separate WC serving the first floor bedrooms. In the annexe there is a further study and large games/snooker room, a utility all on the ground floor with a double bedroom, kitchenette, sitting room and bathroom on the first floor. Outside there is ample parking and room for garaging (as the former garages are now the annexe) and wonderful west facing lawned gardens both both properties.
