A substantial 5 bedroom detached period house with a double garage and large garden within easy reach of amenities. EPC: Band C
Dating from the 1950s this robust house is built from brick elevations set beneath a tiled roof. The property has been individually built and architect designed to give features which set it apart from the rest including intricate brick detailing and an imposing hamstone porch. The property has evolved over time with the most recent addition being a two storey extension to create a fantastic living room and master bedroom suite. The current owner has made many improvements to the property in their ownership including knocking through the kitchen wall to the dining room to increase the size and replacing the kitchen with a bespoke kitchen including granite worktops. The bathrooms have also been updated to modern standards with an exceptionally large smoked glass walk-in shower in the en-suite. The accommodation briefly comprises of an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, study/dining room, sitting room and utility to the ground floor with a master bedroom suite, four further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

A larger than average double garage enables dry storage for two vehicles and a workshop area, with electrical points, at the rear. The rear garden extends to 0.39 acre and is predominantly laid to lawn with a large patio leading off from the rear of the property. The far end of the garden is fenced off and provides an area which has formerly been a productive fruit and vegetable garden. The garden is well stocked with a mixture of flowers, shrubs and bushes with an array of fruit trees.
