EPC Rating: E.
Romney was built around 1961, and enjoys accommodation atypical of the era, including big windows and spacious rooms, whilst offering considerable scope to extend and alter further. The property has been the subject of a partial overhaul, to include new decor throughout, with new en-suite and family bathroom suites, plus stripped Oak flooring, windows and a garage conversion to form a front to rear kitchen/breakfast room.
It is considered that there is significant scope to extend out to the rear, as well as potential for a loft conversion, as the standing height is very good, subject to the necessary planning consents.
One enters via the front door to porch and a further door to an entrance hall with oak wood flooring, stairs to the first floor and doors to the front dining room and the rear reception room.
The dining room enjoys a dual aspect to front and side, as well as wooden flooring and a wide opening to the rear reception room which runs across the back of the house, complete with a large wood burner and wooden flooring.
This reception area opens into the rear sitting room, which enjoys windows and doors looking out to the rear garden, plus a new flat roof. There is an under stairs cupboard, and a door to the cloakroom, comprising a WC and basin, plus an access room with coat hanging space.

The first floor comprises a master bedroom, a generous double, offering superb views out across the vineyard opposite, as well as a door to a newly fitted en-suite to the rear, comprising a bath with shower over, WC and basin and two windows to rear, marble tiled walls, wooden floor and a heated towel rail.
