Renowned for appealing design characteristics, generous proportions and longevity, properties from this period compare very favourably with much newer homes and can be a great choice for a wide range of discerning buyers. This typically light and spacious example combines modern practicality with great versatility and benefits from excellent storage space, gas central heating and double glazing throughout. The property officially offers two good size bedrooms but also benefits from a very useful loft space.
Clearly a cherished and much-loved home, the current owners treated the property to a programme of updating to their exacting standards and in doing so created a sanctuary of great charm with a pleasing and restful atmosphere.

The second double bedroom also has a fitted wardrobe and overlooks the rear. The beautifully appointed house bathroom offers an attractive white suite with bath having shower over, vanity unit wash basin, toilet and heated towel rail. A staircase leads to the attic where you'll find a light and airy loft, which is currently used as an office, with roof windows.
The outside space is a distinctive characteristic of this Victorian home, beginning with a gated driveway at the side with log storage. The enclosed courtyard garden is a wonderful asset, paved for ease of maintenance with mature shrubs and trees and enjoying a favourable southerly orientation, perfect for relaxing or entertaining outside. The detached good size garage/store has proved extremely useful and has potential to be used or converted for various purposes and there's a further outside store.
