The front of the property has been re-modelled and now provides a dropped kerb serving a wide forecourt style hardstanding able to accommodation at least 2 vehicles. There is an exterior power point – ideal for charging an electric car – and a shared pedestrian access, which is currently gated, providing a walkthrough to the rear garden.
The property benefits from a sizeable rear garden plot with the depth extending to approximately 156ft and the width of the plot widening to the top where an extra area of garden space was previously acquired. Immediately off the rear of the property, accessed from the kitchen, there is a spacious flagstone patio terrace, with a pathway to one side and pedestrian gated access to the front of the property. Here there is a utility area with an exterior cold water mains tap and outside light. The rest of the plot opens up to a lawn with pathway to one side, well established borders and two attractive ornamental ponds connected by a small waterfall. Through the trellis archway there is a raised patio leading to the remainder of the plot. We understand included in the sale price is a substantial timber framed outbuilding which we believe has power and light connected (not tested), and presents itself as an excellent workshop facility or possible conversion to a home office.
