Full Details

The Property
This detached home, thought to have been built in the 1960's, has been in the same ownership for nearly 50 years. It is now in need of updating and has a good sized plot, with the rear garden enjoying a westerly aspect. A number of the neighbouring properties have been redeveloped and enlarged so we presume obtaining planning permission would be relatively straight forward.

The Accommodation
Large open porch with the front door leading into a hall with staircase off. On the left is the dual aspect sitting room with a stone open fireplace. A door leads to the kitchen beyond, which can also be accessed from the hall. There are a range of units including a pantry and there are double doors to the rear garden. An arch leads through to the dining room at the rear which has a quadruple aspect including sliding doors to the garden. Off the kitchen is a utility room with an external door, a shower room and a sliding door to the garage. On the first floor landing there is an airing cupboard and an access hatch to the boarded loft space which has a ladder and light. The main bedroom is at the front and is dual aspect with a built-in wardrobe. Next door the third bedroom has a shelved cupboard and further shelving over the stair bulk-head. Bedroom two at the rear is again dual aspect with a built-in wardrobe. The bathroom has a pink suite.

Twin gates open to a block paved drive with parking for several cars. There is a hedge to the roadside and an area of lawn with borders and shrubs. There is access to both sides of the house, with a covered area to the right, which leads to a paved area adjoining the rear of the house. There are steps and a ramp down to the garden which has a lawn, shrub borders and a summerhouse. Through a rose covered arch is a vegetable garden with raised beds, a fruit cage, greenhouse and a shed. There is a gate providing access onto Foxley Road.

All mains services are connected. Central heating is provided by a gas fired boiler. Council Tax Band E - £2,660.79 payable for 2024/25. EPC rating band E - 43.
