THE PROPERTY

Havendale is a very attractive, individual detached character house set in large gardens with a small paddock together with an additional three acres of grazing land in a private country setting with long range views. The family ownership goes back over 90 years and this will be the first time that the property has come to the market. It was built in 1930 and has classic pebbledash rendered elevations under a clay tiled roof. The house still retains a whole number of original features typical of its period including a bay window, fireplaces, panelled doors, picture rails and deep skirting boards. All of the rooms enjoy lovely aspects over the gardens, land and surrounding countryside. Although clearly a well-loved home, the property would now benefit from general updating and there is excellent scope for enlargement.

A large ornate pillared porch leads into a reception hall, sitting room featuring a bay window and fireplace, separate dining room with fireplace, kitchen with solid oak fronted units and walk in larder, lobby and WC. All three bedrooms and the bathroom on the first floor enjoy the great views.

OUTSIDE

In total, the land extends to 3.4 acres comprising the house with immediate gardens of just under 0.4 acre together with the additional 3 acres of grazing land.

It is approached through a five-bar gate onto a long driveway leading to a turning and parking area together with a detached double garage.

Good sized, level well tendered gardens surround the house together with a range of greenhouses and sheds along with a small paddock with two former chicken huts.

The grazing land of 3 acres is reasonably level, down to grass and stock proofed incorporating a galvanised iron stable/barn building and a dilapidated galvanised iron store. Field gate access is off the main road. The land is not subject to any public or private rights of way.
