Offering scope to improve is this handsome Victorian house in a wonderful semi-rural location close to the village centre enjoying views over a protected wild flower meadow. Conveniently placed for access to highly reputable independent schools and major road and rail network for those wishing to commute.


    The property was built around 1860 originally as two farm cottages before being converted in to one dwelling in 1959. The present owners have enjoyed living in the house for the last 32 years and during their tenure, re-modelled the exterior to include Gothic - style windows to the front elevation. It now offers a great opportunity for the next owner to put their own stamp on the property. The interior is both light and spacious and has lovely views of the cottage style gardens. A pretty entrance porch leads into a large hallway with cloakroom off and a set of double doors gives access to a dining room, this leads to the main living room with double aspect windows and a wood burning stove fitted to an original fireplace, double doors open on to a delightful garden room providing a further seating area or dining area. The kitchen requires updating but has a perfectly functional range of fitted storage units, an electric oven, hob, plumbing for a dishwasher and cupboard housing an oil-fired boiler which serves the central heating, the water is heated via solar panels on the garage roof. Also, on the ground floor is a useful laundry room with plumbing for washing machine. Stairs from the hall lead to a first-floor landing providing access to a part boarded loft, the master bedroom is spacious and dual aspect windows give views over gardens and fields, door to a good size en suite bathroom with bath, WC and basin. There are 3 further bedrooms all enjoying a view, off the landing is a separate shower room with basin and WC.
