Extended property with versatile accommodation depending on whether 1 or 2 bedroom layout is preferred. The home has been modernised to some extent but the new occupier will have scope to use their own flair and expertise to create a very individual home. Set behind high double gates this interesting home will appeal to anyone looking for something different. The front area is laid out mostly in gravel with mature boundaries and trees affording privacy. The kitchen /living area is nicely tiled and boasts an original cast iron fireplace. The rest of the accommodation lies to the left of the hallway and comprises a fine sized master bedroom with ensuite, the other room is ideal either as bedroom or reception room - thus the alternative layout as mentioned.

A storage shed and separate laundry room surrounded by deck offer additional storage or even work shop.

For someone looking for a small property on its own private gardens as an alternative to apartment living, this home would be ideal.
