This four double bedroom, single level property, oozes character that you just don’t see very often. In a generous plot, on a quiet one-way street, with gardens wrapping around the whole house and parking for many cars, you will be amazed by this incredible house. The sweeping gravel driveway opens on to a view of the impressive façade. There is a terrace across the front, where you will be able to enjoy al fresco covered dining and entertaining, from March to October.

You are greeted by a large entrance hallway, with beautiful black and white ceramic tile flooring. To your left are floor to ceiling storage cupboards, perfect for hiding the things you need, but don’t want to see! On your left is the generous sized kitchen. Though the kitchen needs updating, you cannot take away the fact that the whole place has been cleverly thought out with families and socialising in mind. There is hand-built floor-to-ceiling storage on one wall, a kitchen island in the centre, room for a double cooker and space for an extra electric oven. The floor is white ceramic tiles. You have space for 2 fridges under the island and for a freezer in the built-in storage space. It is ready to entertain; the island is also a breakfast bar.

To the right of the main entrance is the 4th bedroom, easily a double, with views to the front gardens.

There is a toilet off the main hall, next to the main bathroom, which has a refreshing flash of white/green wall tiles, two sinks, a shower, room and foot warmingly heated ceramic flooring.

To access the incredible lounge, choose from entering from the kitchen, from the dining room or from floor to ceiling patio doors off the front terrace. It is a large room with an arts and crafts style fireplace with wood burner. Large ceramic tiles cover the whole floor.

From the lounge, is the dining room. Light and airy with two sets of glass panelled double doors. There’s room for a large dining table, a ‘buffet’ and comfy chairs, a space for entertaining as well as a place to lounge / curl up, read a book or catch up on your socials. Access the middle corridor from the dining room to access to the bedrooms and back into the main hallway.

Head from the dining room, out on to the 2nd, rear corridor which offers a great space to sit, study, store or just enjoy the fantastic view of the extensive gardens! The second bathroom needs TLC, offering an opportunity to put your stamp on the property! Access to the cellar is also through the second bathroom. Access to the extensive rear gardens is via a door off the rear corridor.

The house feels like it was designed with a lot of thought; 3 of the 4 bedrooms are accessed from either the middle corridor or the rear corridor, each having patio doors, illuminating them from the windows which stretch across the width of the property, overlooking the spacious gardens.

Bedroom 1 is huge, with patio doors to the rear corridor. There’s so much room in here, room for a double bed, large wardrobes, drawers and storage without feeling cramped.

Bedroom 2, with patio doors to the rear corridor. This reasonably sized room could accommodate a double bed and furniture; it could be a study / workroom.

Bedroom 3 has jolly useful over bed storage. Patio doors lead to the rear corridor. There’s plenty of room, it would easily accommodate a double bed, it’s light and airy.

In the corner of the front garden is a stone-built barn. It’s on two levels. It could be an amazing project, perhaps a gite, maybe a studio, summer kitchen, a den, the possibilities are numerous!

In the main garden is a large barn. With a mezzanine floor, inspection pit and space to park up to 4 cars. If you are practical, love your ride on mower, need to leave the dirty jobs outside, this is for you. It needs some love; it’s been a bit neglected.

Fancy owning an unusual house; space you just don’t see in modern UK houses? This is a reluctant sale, due to changed family circumstances.
