A charming, thatched, semi-detached home in the beautiful Piddle Valley offered with no forward chain. EPC Band D.

THE PROPERTY

2 Banks Cottages is an exceptionally charming thatched semi-detached property built in the late 1990 s offering a wealth of charm in an enviable elevated position on the outskirts of Piddletrenthide in the pretty Piddle valley.

The property has been within the same family since new and is now offered to market with no onward chain. The house, although exceptionally charming would lend itself to a degree of updating throughout but predominantly in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The accommodation is deceptively spacious offering three bedrooms and a host of reception rooms downstairs which would suit the needs of many purchasers and future proof the property for more mature occupiers or those needing to work from home.

From the front door and entrance vestibule a downstairs cloakroom/ shower room can be found along with under stairs storage. Two further reception rooms are currently configured as a dining room and study which overlook the rear garden and patio. The sitting room is generous and of triple aspect enjoying views of the countryside to the front and over the rear garden and patio area through French doors. There is a relatively new Jotul wood burner which further enhances a pretty feature fireplace. The compact, yet well appointed fitted kitchen has solid wood units and leads through to an extended garden room that integrates the gardens with the house, forming easy access for any purchaser and giving a further reception room off the kitchen from which to enjoy one s lovely surrounds and offer spacious kitchen breakfast space. There is a handy well-appointed utility with rear access.

Upstairs, there are three generous bedrooms all of double proportions although the smallest room is more modest. The master enjoys fitted wardrobes and an en-suite and there are further fitted wardrobes and cupboards throughout the property.

OUTSIDE

The grounds and gardens surround three sides of the house and are well planted with mature boarders and areas of level lawn with a raised lawn and garden to the rear. The rear garden holds a summerhouse, which will need tending to, or replacing going forward. Excellent vistas can be appreciated from much of the grounds which are substantially elevated from the road and look over the valley beyond. There is also a sizeable detached double garage and a parking area to the rear for at least two vehicles.
