An extremely rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this large scale traditional 1930's four bedroom detached family home which lies within easy reach of the town centre, A1(M) linking the North and South and the A66. This truly impressive home offers an abundance of charm with a huge amount of character and style with high ceilings and many beautiful period features which can only be fully appreciated upon a thorough internal inspection, which we highly recommend at your earliest opportunity.

The light and airy entrance reception with imposing original Oak open balustrade staircase gives a fabulous first impression from entering through the front door, the home has been extremely well cared for and maintained and sensitively improved by the present owners, the majority of windows have been replaced in recent years with uPVC double glazing including the original stained glass windows replicated in the double glazed units. The gas central heating boiler was replaced in 2019.

Externally the home is set back in its' own grounds and has a huge amount of kerb appeal with an understated elegance thanks to the sweeping block paved driveway allowing parking for a number of vehicles leading to the garage with electric up and over door, whilst the rear garden features a comprehensive watering system and is a perfect place to relax and unwind during the warmer months.

In our opinion this home will certainly appeal to a variety of buyers providing spacious versatile accommodation presenting presence, style and charm accompanied by a wonderfully welcoming feel.

** SELLERS COMMENTS **

We bought the property 20 years ago and on entering the hall knew it was for us. the unique period features of the property, the large rooms and sense of space made this home very appealing and it has been a privilege to live in this wonderful home. We have enjoyed living in this friendly community which has all amenities right on the doorstep. Its' close proximity to the local nature reserve and park makes it a great place to live.

** THE PROPERTY'S HISTORY **

The land on which the property is situated was purchased by local funeral director, John Meynell and foundations were installed in 1934. In 1938, having allowed the foundations to settle for 4 years, Armstrong builders were commissioned to build the property to Meynell's own specifications. The current owners are in possession of the original plans.
