A substantial seven bedroom detached home set on a 0.3 acre plot in a very private location. The accommodation is in excess of 3,000 Sq.Ft. and is immaculately presented throughout making it an ideal and much loved family home. A location few know about making it an ideal secluded and peaceful retreat yet still close to all village amenities, schools and transport to the city. The house was built in 1979 by renowned local builder Cyril Beazer and has been in the ownership of the vendor since being built. Meticulously maintained over the years it has been further extended on two occasions to provide the accommodation it does today. A rare opportunity and sold with the benefit of no onward chain.
