An extremely spacious five/six bedroom chalet style residence in a prime residential area, offering versatile accommodation arranged over two floors with the benefit of full gas fired central heating and PVCu double glazed windows and external doors. The property was built about fifteen years ago to the current owners bespoke specification, and subsequently planning consent has been granted for further extensions and a car port. As it stands though, and subject to the necessary consents, the existing accommodation could be reconfigured to create an annex for a dependent relative. Externally the property stands in grounds of approximately 0.25 of an acre which features plentiful and secure off road parking, an integral double garage, and a fabulous full width Indian sandstone patio/entertaining area with a barbecue and pizza oven. No Onward Chain.
