This impressive Detached Villa Built by a local family in the 1970’s it has changed hands several times. Each family adding their own mark and making it home. Its current owners have stripped back all the years of wallpaper and paint ready for a new family to make their mark. Let’s not gift wrap it though as it does need a bit of upgrading here and there notably the kitchen and what should be the star of the show, the could be, “To die for” lounge/ diner area which is an enormous space but in need of a bit of artistic flair! All other rooms are purely cosmetic but you probably would want to put your own mark on it anyway.
From the minute you enter through the front doorway into a welcoming open plan reception hall you cannot fail to be impressed with the feeling of space that this home offers. Fully double glazed with oil central heating. This property really must be seen to be fully appreciated! The potential that this home has is mind boggling! With a bit of imagination this home could be truly spectacular!

Laid to carpet this fabulous room has a large window formation to the front and patio doors to the rear, leading to an external raised patio area with views over your kingdom and adjacent fields. The flooring would need replacing however to elevate this room to its full potential.
Kitchen – 4.85 x 3.06 (15’10” x 10’0″)
Beautifully proportioned kitchen/diner complete with induction hob, Neff double oven and grill, freestanding Miele dishwasher and housing for washing machine and tumble dryer. Laid to vinyl flooring this well fitted out kitchen has a range of floor and wall units and a mass of worktop surface space making preparing any meal easy. This whole room to be honest could be doing with a complete makeover as it is a little dated which is absolutely considered in the new listing price. The view from the large kitchen window however is picture perfect and you cannot put a price on that!
Public Room/ Bedroom 5 – 5.5 x 4.9 (18’0″ x 16’0″)
This is an extremely versatile room. Ideal as an informal TV room or perfect as a massive double bedroom with more than enough room for a king size bed, sofa and the usual bedroom furniture. Ideal for a family member with mobility problems with the bathroom and kitchen close by. With two double cupboards / wardrobe for storage.
Family Bathroom –
White 3 piece suite with bath and separate shower cubicle. Currently laid to carpet which might not suit everyone this is a very generous sized bathroom which again could provide the WOW factor with a little bit of love!

W.C – 2.1 x 1.5 (6’10” x 4’11”)
Useful additional w.c on upper floor comprising of toilet and sink of modern design.
Impressive front garden with a long-rounded driveway. The house is set back from the road with more than enough parking for all your family and friends to come and visit.
Hidden to the side is a large side garden with mature shrubs and trees.
The rear garden is extensive to say the least and with views over the neighbouring fields with cows and sheep, giving you an even greater feeling of space and tranquillity.
A wooded area at the bottom of the garden would be perfect for young adventurers. The Garden is currently laid to grass so ideal for playing football and entertaining. A blank canvas for gardeners or maybe for equestrian uses, the possibilities are endless.
Again, must be seen to be fully appreciated!
There are 2 detached garages to the side of the property with even more space to park through an iron gate. More than enough space for a horse box, motor-home or even a boat maybe.
In short, this house could be amazing! It is not the finished “article” the kitchen could do with upgrading, but you could move in today and do this as a project to make it your own. All other rooms are blank canvases to your taste giving you so much potential! You should expect to replace the kitchen (but is fully functional) and lounge flooring, I would imagine, but the remainder of the house would be get to areas over time to slowly build the house of your dreams! This work is reflected in the price, as the current owners believe the new owners will be better placed to make their mark with the savings made against the home report.
