To The Outside

The property is accessed directly off Well Lane onto a gravelled front hardstanding which provides off street parking for a number of motor vehicles and which in turn gives access to the detached double garage block which is of brick and tiled construction with two separate up and over garage doors. A lockable garden gate from the driveway takes you through to the rear garden beyond.

Running full width across the front elevation is a substantial flagged patio and there is a secondary gated access at the eastern side of the property which again provides off street parking for numerous motor vehicles, and gives access through a lockable gate into the rear garden.

The property is complimented by a stunning south facing rear garden which is without doubt one of the outstanding selling features.

The garden is extensively laid to lawn with surrounding and central herbaceous borders in addition to mature screening trees to the rear and side elevations creating the ideal family environment.

The property features an enclosed rear swimming pool with a surrounding fence line, designed to be small childproof. The swimming pool includes a retractable cover and a timber built summer house/changing room. As of summer 2021, the pool's pump and filtration system was in working order, as was the biomass boiler that heats it.

There is no doubt that this property will also be attractive to those with a keen equestrian interest. There is a gated access to a holding bay with two timber built stables and a tack room. All are equipped with electric light and power. From the stables, a five bar gate leads out into a 2 acre pony paddock beyond which is laid to grass with surrounding post and rail fencing. In addition there is an area of ferrell garden and woodland which borders both Carr Lane and Well Lane with a further five bar gate providing secondary road access. The extent of the land and gardens can be clearly identified by the red verge plan shown within the sales particulars.

Crucially the property and land are being offered for sale with vacant possession and there is no doubt that this property represents a very unique opportunity indeed.
