This attractive period property has been extended and renovated by the present owners over recent years. The accommodation has a charming feel to it with many period features including the large Inglenook fireplace, oak beams, exposed natural stone walls and a recently added conservatory which overlooks a private rear garden.

In good order throughout the property has potential to provide a second bathroom at first floor level. Plans have been drawn for a double garage and walk through building at the entrance to the property and subject planning there may be scope for a studio annex or garden room beneath.

The property is a bit of a tardis. It appears quite small when you approach from the front, but it is much bigger inside, and far more secluded that it first appears. It is not detached, but its neighbour is very discrete and accessed quite separately from Tadwick Lane

This is quite a delightful period property with a beautiful garden and a viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agent Cobb Farr
