This property has been in the same ownership since it was built in the 1960's. The owner knew the builder who was building St.Winifred's Drive at the time and managed to purchase what was two plots from him. He did this in order to build the house he wanted on a much larger plot than originally planned.
Today this now affords a new owner to considerably expand the existing property or look to develop the plot (STPP) or to add a further dwelling, if required. Already a good size at 1,898 Sq.Ft you could certainly look to perhaps add a second storey and create a large family home.
The driveway to the property winds from the road to the property tucked away on a peaceful corner plot. You enter the property into a sunroom/porch which gives further access to the hallway. The hallway splits left to right with bedrooms and bathroom to the left and living accommodation to the right. It also provides a shower room with WC and cupboard housing the heating system. To the right you enter into a dining room which gives access to both the sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room is a comfortable space, 20' in length, with dual aspect windows making it a light room. To the end of this room a door leads to a large study or craft room. The kitchen is spacious with modern wall and floor units with worktop, integrated oven and hob and breakfast dining area. There is a utility cupboard which gives access to the rear garden. You will also find another useful utility room to the end of the kitchen with pantry cupboard, space and plumbing for appliances and access to the rear garden. Back to the hallway and to the left a further hall leads to all four bedrooms and a bathroom. All bedrooms come with built-in storage cupboards and there is also a linen cupboard in the hallway.
The gardens encircle the property with the long tarmac driveway leading back to the road and providing parking for numerous vehicles. There is also a car port to the side of the property. The gardens are large with south and west aspects. and mainly laid to lawn. There are established beds, shrubs and small trees and a dated wooden built summer house to the rear.
