PROPERTY IN BRIEF This is a rare and fantastic opportunity to acquire a character and spacious four bedroom detached family home. The property does require some cosmetic upgrading, yet creating a fantastic opportunity to make this a comfortable modern family home.

Set back on a service road, this property is peaceful in its location, and enjoys a stunning and generous south facing garden which backs onto the playing fields.

Located in the older part of the village, within easy walking distance to the village centre, local bus routes, and not too far from the train station. The convenience here for families is the local primary, secondary and nursery being within a very short walking distance, and sat on the edge of countryside for walking and cycling enthusiasts, not to mention the local farm shop and Saracen's Head public house.

On the ground floor, the property enjoys a generous living room with dual aspect views, leading into the family dining room. The kitchen enjoys a garden view. This property would welcome a ground floor extension, subject to planning, where you could then create a generous open plan kitchen/dining space with bi-folding doors out to the south-facing garden. There is a generous under-stairs store and cloakroom.

Upstairs, the landing is spacious perfect for a family getting ready for work and school. The main bedroom runs front to rear enjoying dual aspect views and of course that stunning garden and country view. There are three further double bedrooms, and the family bathroom.

Outside, the property is set back off the service road, enjoying a generous driveway with large fore-garden which could be extended should you require more parking, access to the double garage, and the rear garden which has the benefit of a large patio, a generous lawn with feature pond and a stunning south-facing aspect.
