Property description

A substantial five bedroom property in a sought after village.

This detached property is situated in a generous plot tucked away behind trees and hedges in the peaceful village of Great Offley. Believed to date back to the 1960s, the property has been extended several times but is in need of some modernisation, so would make a great project for a buyer looking to add their stamp. The extraordinary far-reaching views to the rear are a major highlight and can be enjoyed from all of the key living spaces, including the property’s five bedrooms.

In total the accommodation extends to approximately 3322 sq ft across two floors and there is plenty of flexibility for a buyer to utilise this substantial space in a way that works for them. The property is entered via a glass-fronted entrance hall complete with a handy WC. There are two spacious dual aspect receptions; the main reception with its striking inglenook fireplace and a separate formal dining room, both of which have sliding doors to the patio and large windows to maximise the views. The fully fitted country-style kitchen also has a sliding door to the patio, as well as a breakfast bar and range cooker. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a utility and study, both with direct access to a WC, as well as a smaller third reception room. On the first floor are five bedrooms all with glorious views over open fields and most with fitted storage. The main bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom and the others share access to a family bathroom.

The property is accessed via a short track off the High Street and a large gravel drive enclosed by hedges, which has space for several vehicles. The secluded rear garden boasts stunning views across rolling countryside, with horses often making an appearance in the neighbouring field. A patio extending the full width of the property is an ideal spot for al fresco dining and had steps leading down to a neat lawn. The entire garden is surrounded by hedges and tall trees offering a good degree of privacy, as well as plenty of shady spots during the summer months.
