Property Details

Internally, the house is arranged to provide an L'shaped lounge and dining room combination plus conservatory and study. A generous kitchen space is further served by a large utility room beyond.

Gas fired radiator heating, and PVCu double glazed windows.

Gardens & Grounds
The house sits back from the road and is hardly visible from street level given the elevated position, bank and establishing hornbeam hedge to the road. This not long planted new hedge will in time provide the rare luxury of ensuring the majority of passing traffic is below the hedge line. An asphalt drive leads off Castleton Way to a parking and turning area complete with a run off to one side. The integrated DOUBLE GARAGE has twin electric roller doors opening to a space 20'2 x 18'1 (6.15m x 5.52m). A Worcester Green Star 8000 gas fired boiler supplies domestic hot water and radiators and has been installed by the current owners (March 22) replacing an earlier type.

Gardens surround the house on three principal sides with a utilitarian walled off area to the fourth along with a sizeable Garden Shed. The lawned garden areas are interspersed with borders, beds and trees along with a caged vegetable and fruit garden with Greenhouse to one side. The owners are avid gardeners and famously said when purchasing the property "we are buying a garden with a house." Their enthusiasm is apparent in all areas with thoughtfully planted borders and beds and more structural planting with trees and hedging. By stepping out of the house onto the paved terrace not only does one receive the full impact of this wide plot but also a surface leading around the house with the left hand side a sheltered al fresco area with screen wall and BBQ complete with chimney. In all, the grounds extend to approximately 0.61 Acres (0.25 Hectares). A Mountfield Ride-On mower is included.

The vendor has confirmed that the property benefits from mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
