Full description:
A simply stunning 3/4 bedroom detached period residence set in secluded grounds of approximately one acre and which includes an exciting development opportunity. Boasting a semi rural position on the outskirts of Calderbridge the property is only a short drive to neighbouring towns, schools and many of the area's major employment centres.

The property's private and landscaped gardens create the perfect setting for families and children and there is yet further potential to improve and add value by way of an adjoining annexe which just requires completing. Having already undergone a significant program of works by the present owners, the conversion itself would be relatively straight forward and could provide a home office/studio, ancillary accommodation for a dependent relative or for use in the holiday letting trade.

The main house offers a versatile layout which should suit a range of prospective purchasers and in brief comprises entrance vestibule, lounge/dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms; one of which is currently used as a sitting room/snug, family bathroom and a fabulous garden room with a part vaulted glass ceiling and bi-folding doors connecting it with the gardens. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a shower room.

All in all, a truly fascinating property, one which offers considerable potential. Viewing is essential.3/4 Bed Detached Period Residence
