A rare development opportunity to purchase this substantial (2488 sq ft) detached late 1950’s home tucked away at the bottom of a private gated drive, which becomes available for the first time in over 50 years. The site was historically a nursery and builders merchants with the house subsequently being built with beautiful gardens and grounds of just over 0.6 of an acre with outbuildings which have previously been used for business storage by the current owners . This wonderful versatile home is very much a one off and the plot offers excellent development potential (STPP).
The accommodation of the existing house comprises of an entrance hall, large living room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, third reception, utility room and cloakroom all to the ground floor. Upstairs you will find a master bedroom with en-suite, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and an additional separate W.C. Outside there are several outbuildings, including a double height workshop, double garage, stable block, car port for four vehicles and extensive grounds. LOCATION
