Property description

Just a stones' throw from the village shops and cafes, this three storey townhouse is set in a quiet cul de sac just off the main square.

The driveway is large enough for two cars and the former garage has been part converted and is currently used as a music room but will also make a great sized study. This still leaves plenty of room for storage of tools, garden equipment etc.

Off of the music room is the lovely sunny conservatory which overlooks the nice enclosed rear garden, ideal for a quiet reading spot or relaxing space.

Being a town house the living accommodation is on the first floor but fortunately unlike other designs the kitchen is next to the lounge on one level. However, don't worry about your rumbling washing machine whilst watching the TV, as the utility room is on the ground floor which gives you plenty of room for extra storage in the kitchen.

There is certainly plenty to offer with this property and there is scope (subject to relevant planning) to extend again or rearrange the accommodation.

What the Owner says:
We bought this house 13 years ago and over the years we have added the conservatory as well as dividing the former garage to make a sound proof music room as my husband likes to play his guitar.

The lounge is a good size and being next to the kitchen it's very handy. One Christmas we had a big group of us eating in the lounge and it comfortably fit everyone in.

We love our house but as there is now just the two of us and we are looking to down size to something smaller. However we are offering the home chain free so we can find something to buy at our leisure.
