Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This property is one of three houses believed to have been built in the 1980's to take full advantage of some lovely views to the rear, with reconstituted stone elevations under a tiled roof.

Although the property is in good working order it will within the next few years need some updating to bring it firmly into the 21st century.

The accommodation is arranged around a good size reception hall with an equally light and airy landing above. All of the principal rooms are arranged along the rear of the property to take full advantage of the lovely views that look out across the Marshwood Vale towards Lamberts Castle.

The sitting room stretches from the front to the rear of the original footprint of the house with sliding doors through to a conservatory which has a ceramic tiled floor and access to the garden. To one side of the sitting room there is an attractive Georgian fireplace that provides a focal point for the room. The dining room has double doors through to the sitting room and a single door from the hallway.

The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with a built-in ceramic hob and electric oven. Behind the kitchen is a useful utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for both a fridge/freezer and a tumble dryer. A door to one side leads through to a dog/boot room that has a useful second sink and drainer.

Upstairs there are four good bedrooms the principle of which has an en-suite bathroom with the three remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. Off the galleried landing is a useful box room which is ideal for storage.

The property has oil fired central heating and private drainage.


To the front of the house a gated entrance gives way to a substantial area of hardstanding providing parking and turning for a number of cars with access to the attached garage

The garage is equipped with light and power and an electric remotely operated up and over door.

The front garden is for the most part laid to lawn with some attractive ornamental trees to one side. The gardens to the rear of the property are currently divided into compartments with an enclosed garden immediately to the rear of the property with a paved terrace making an ideal entertaining area during the summer months.

Beyond is the main body of the garden that is stocked with an array of herbaceous shrubs and plants punctuated by a number of trees with a wisteria covered timber walkway leading down to the vegetable patch that is screened by espaliered apple trees. The vegetable patch has in recent years been used as a cut flower garden with a useful garden shed. Close to the house there is a utilities area with a greenhouse. The gardens are enclosed by a mixture of mature hedge and timber fencing creating a series of private spaces within a substantial plot.
