The accommodation is centrally heated and double glazed, currently arranged as entrance porch leading to hallway, living room, kitchen, bedroom 3 / dining room off (note bedroom 3 and living room could easily revert to a larger lounge diner if preferred), shower room (formerly bathroom so space for bath if required), second bedroom, and 2nd sitting room / bedroom with conservatory off. The property occupies a good sized level plot with twin entrances, ample parking, space for boat or caravan, large car port providing a large under cover parking area leading to a detached single garage with useful shed behind it.

The mature trees in the garden have tree preservation orders (permission can be obtained to keep them trimed). The good size plot affords a good degree of privacy and offers plenty of space for an extension if required. The property is being offered for sale with no onward going chain and offers a great opportunity for a discerning purchaser.
