There are two garages, one single and the other a triple which is ripe for conversion into offices or accommodation for an elderly relative, or student returning back to the nest or even a rental property (subject to permissions). The garden to the rear offers a courtyard style feel with astro turf for easy maintenance and patio areas for entertaining or simply relaxing upon.

The property occupies a meticulously maintained plot which extends to approximately 1/3 of an acre. A gated frontage allows access onto a sizeable gravel driveway, which provides excellent off-street parking for several vehicles. There is space to house a caravan or motor home if required. Beautifully shaped lawns extend along the front, enclosed by beech hedging, together with mature beds planted with flowers and shrubs, adding colour and interest, the frontage enjoys a southerly aspect. The driveway divides into two, one of which sweeps to the single garage at one side of the house, whilst the other leads to the triple garage with electric door - so much potential here to create a separate living annex for dependent relatives or for a returning family member. Alternatively this could create a work from home office, all subject to permissions. If desired you could keep this as a large garage/storage area. At the rear of the property the garden has been designed with low maintenance in mind. In a courtyard style setting with a paved patio which is ideal for BBQs, entertaining friends or family gatherings, beech hedging and fencing ensures great privacy. Flower beds add a pretty addition and the astro-turf is ideal for the children or pets. Such an easy to maintain area to which you could add pots of flowers if desired.
