With views over fields to front and rear, this house has a fabulous rural outlook, as well as offering considerable scope to extend and modernise, with a large garden, a fabulous lane location, yet within 250 yards of the local Farm Shop and Cafe. Comprising four bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and sitting room, ample parking and a garage. NO CHAIN. EPC rating TBC.
The property forms a charming house, owned by the family for over forty years. The house now needs modernisation throughout and offers considerable scope to also extend and include a loft conversion, subject to any necessary consents.
One enters via a covered glazed porch, with a further door to the dining room, with a window to rear and stairs leading to the first floor. A door leads to an under stairs cupboard, as well as a downstairs cloakroom.
A further door leads into the sitting room, a bright double aspect room with an open fireplace to one side, fitted cupboards, two windows to front and window to side.
The kitchen is to the rear, complete with an array of base and wall units, plus a window to rear and door leading to a lean-to rear lobby/utility room. There is a fitted sink, and a boiler in the chimney recess, plus space for further appliances.
The first floor provides a landing, with access to the sizable loft offering considerable scope for conversion (we note that the adjoining property has previously converted their roof space) subject to any necessary consents.
There are two bedrooms facing the front of the house with lovely views across the land and fields opposite, both with fitted wardrobes. A third bedroom has a rear facing window with views out across the fields behind, whilst the fourth bedroom has a window to side, overlooking the garden.
