It's rare for a property such as this to come available on the open market. Occupying an established 1/3 acre plot on the edge of this pretty historic village and offering approx. 2000 ft.² of accommodation this chalet family home has immense potential for further enlargement or redevelopment.
Presently positioned within this rural setting the property enjoys far reaching views of the surrounding countryside which includes paddocks and charming wooded surroundings to give a sense of being ‘away from it all' while still being conveniently placed for a walk into the village centre.
Dating back to the 1920s this was originally a double bay fronted bungalow, since that time the property has been significantly enlarged and incorporates basement cellar storage and a versatile accommodation layout that can provide you with four-bedroom accommodation.
In addition, there are two bathrooms, a separate ground floor WC, two reception rooms, an incredibly generous reception hall which has a width of 7.47 m (24ft6) and finally a recently re-fitted kitchen diner which embraces the two front facing bay windows. Its worth noting the kitchen with underfloor heating and quartz worktops, has a tasteful contemporary theme and includes well-chosen cabinets together with an island unit and two ‘top of the range' Siemens ovens.
Being positioned on a corner plot the property enjoys well stocked gardens to all sides together with extensive paved terraces. As well as having great spaces with wonderful surroundings for entertaining there is also a gravel drive and a detached double garage accessed from Whites Hill.
