On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, with the principal bedroom benefitting from an ensuite bathroom and lovely garden vistas.

Outside, the substantial rear garden has been beautifully landscaped to offer year-round variety and interest. This pretty outdoor space is mainly laid to lawn, with a wealth of mature shrubs and trees, raised beds and well-established borders that provide a high degree of privacy. A decking area sits adjacent to the house and there is a handy greenhouse and an insulated stable block-style outbuilding that stands ready for a myriad of business opportunities. This outbuilding has approved planning permission for business use.

At the front, double gates open to a substantial driveway and parking area and lead to a garage.

The property comes with no onward chain.
