This unique and delightful property is set well back from the main road down a private garted driveway. A property that you really don't expect to be there, this is a cracking property and we can't wait to show you.

Accompanying the driveway is a generous and beautifully landscaped garden which provides a really tranquil space to sit, relax and enjoy. There is good car parking space and access under the carport and onto the garage. For privacy, there is a farm-style gate at the top of the drive, you really are in a place that nobody would know exists.


The property has a generous porch area as you step into the house from the driveway. This space is adaptable, and although works really well as a generous location for your coats, shoes, and some extra storage space, there is also the opportunity here for a handy home office/study/ reading space, especially to enjoy the tranquil views of the front garden. The porch has frosted leaded windows around, with a UPVC partially glazed door to invite you into the property. There’s also a further double glazed window into the front sitting room with an internal door to bring you inside to the sitting/dining room.

This property benefits from two reception rooms. Firstly, as you walk through from the porch, you find yourself in the first reception room, which is a room full of charm, character and provides many options, whether as a dining room especially being close to the kitchen, or a relaxing sitting room to sit back and unwind. This room is full of period features, ceiling beams, a focal fireplace, and a useful space for your bookshelves. There's also a central heating radiator and doors leading to the hallway and access into the kitchen.

In addition, there is a storage cupboard which is a great size, providing plenty of space for your coats, shoes and additional storage, as well as being home to the Worcester combination boiler which has been recently installed and connected to a Hive system.

The kitchen is located at the front of the property, featuring a bay window which enjoys a charming and peaceful view of the front landscaped garden and driveway. The kitchen offers a good compliment of white wall and base units with plenty of workspace and drawers, as well as having a fitted double oven, a separate four-ring gas hob with extractor hood over, a double sink, and plenty of space and provisions for your separate fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. The kitchen also enjoys feature beams, tall ceilings, and a stable door to the side elevation, which gives access out into the carport, which is perfect on the wet days for bringing your shopping straight into the kitchen. Another delightful feature here is the red brick tiled flooring, which continues the period charm to the property. There’s are ceiling spotlights.

The hallway is positioned in the middle of the property and gives access to the living room, sitting room, second bedroom, shower room, and the separate downstairs WC, as well as having a handy space under the stairs for further storage, or a great place for the dog's bed. Tastefully presented with light contrasting carpet and wall lighting.

The property has the benefit of seperate washing/toilet facilities here on the ground floor, the shower room is modern, providing a large corner shower with mains-fed control, having both hand-held and drench attachments, accompanied by glass sliding doors. There is a handy white hi-gloss vanity unit which is perfect for your toiletries, and a large wash basin with chrome mixer tap and mirror set above. In addition, a towel radiator is perfect for the exit from the shower, as well as the room being tiled mid-height with contrasting floor tiles, neutral design walls, and a frosted double glazed opening window to the side elevation.

On the ground floor, there is also a separate toilet perfect for when the shower room is occupied, having a WC with dual flush, a handy storage unit with a wash hand basin with individual hot and cold taps and splash-back tiling. This room has been re-decorated in a neutral style with feature floral wallpaper, a central heating radiator, and a frosted opening double glazed window to the side elevation.

The main living room is located at the rear of the house and boasts that gorgeous view of the landscaped rear garden and onwards into The Dingles. The living room is a great size, and will easily accommodate your larger sofas and chairs, your media centre as well as enjoying a modern electric wall-mounted fire as the main feature. This room is beautifully and stylishly presented with a modern decor, enjoying ceiling beams and picture rails around, with twin double glazed windows to the rear elevation and a large patio door to lead you out to the garden and patio areas. This really is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy when entertaining, or snuggled up on the sofa in front of a good movie and a good bottle of wine. There's also a large central heating radiator for additional heating, and for your connectivity, there is a good supply of power points, TV aerial, and hook ups for cable television, subject to your own subscription.

Bedroom number two is located on the ground floor and set to the rear to enjoy that tranquil garden view. This beautifully styled and spacious bedroom will easily accommodate your larger bedroom furniture, and plenty of space for free-standing wardrobes, or perhaps to have some fitted. There are feature beams within this room, ceiling spotlights, a central heating radiator and various power points around.

Should you require some ground floor bedroom accommodation for a member of the family perhaps who is unable to reach the stairs, this room works really well, particularly having the downstairs toilet and shower room really close by.


Welcome upstairs. The landing is bright and continues the period features, as well as enjoying a large double glazed opening window on the landing to ensure plenty of natural light to flow through upstairs. The landing has access to the two upstairs bedrooms.

The principal bedroom is located on this top floor, a spacious bedroom, tastefully presented and boasting the most delightful view of the woodlands to the rear, which is certainly a pleasant place to start your day, as well as enjoying your garden view. The large double glazed window ensures plenty of natural light into the bedroom space. The bedroom runs into the eaves, and delivers excellent floor space, perfect for your large bed, accompanying side tables, and some good floor space into the eaves, where you may wish to have some built-in storage cupboards added to this room. There are power points within the floor, and a handy space around the corner, which is perfect for some additional storage and clothes hanging space. The bedroom has a central heating radiator with thermostatic control and ceiling light.

Just as a helpful idea, as the garage is on the one side of this property, there may be opportunities to extend the upstairs accommodation out and over the garage, making for additional bedroom space. This is of course subject to the correct planning permissions.

This bedroom benefits from an en-suite WC, incorporating additional storage space. The room has a toilet with dual flush, a white hi-gloss vanity unit for toiletries, and a wash basin set above with chrome mixer tap. This room has feature beams to add some character, and provides a general space additional storage, or you may wish to add units further down the line.

The third bedroom is an adaptable space, working really well as a young persons bedroom, guest room, or as the current owners use this as a home office. There is an opening double glazed window to the front elevation, bringing in plenty of natural light, as well as ceiling lighting and numerous power points and central heating radiator.

In addition, there is access into the loft space which is a surprisingly generous and opens up a number of opportunities. Ideally, subject to the correct permissions, with the creation of a dormer window to the side and window to the front, then this would make for an additional bedroom. Alternatively, without as much alterations, this room would work really well for the younger member of the family to have a great hideaway/games room for their friends to come round. There are many things you can do with this space with some imagination. However, as stands, provides fantastic storage.


This is a unique property, and once you arrive at the property for your viewing, you will appreciate the individuality of this home. The property boasts a large plot, enjoying both a landscaped and generous front garden and driveway, as well as a very tranquil and peaceful rear garden.

The back garden is a lovely place to be, private, peaceful and offering various tiered level sitting areas and patio zones with a lawn area. The rear garden is accessed from the living room or from the garage, as well as having access around the side with the gate leading back to the front driveway, and on the opposite side, a door into the garage.

There is a handy undercover brick building, which is perfect for some outdoor seating on the miserable days, but also providing some space for your barbecue, and would make for a really cosy sitting area. There’s also an outside tap, a useful storage shed, and door into the garage.


The garage has vehicle access doors to the front, and a personal door to the rear leading into the garden. The garage is currently being used more as a workshop space and provides excellent storage, having some additional space in the roof void. The garage also has power and lighting.
