A most surprising period property with parking and garden situated on the edge of the town within a short walk of shops and cafes. The house has Georgian origins and has been extended under the current ownership to provide generous family accommodation. The property has many lovely period features and even the modern extension is delightfully quirky. From the top down, the house has three double bedrooms, a large family bathroom, a shower room and a good landing area, large living room with a beautiful original fireplace, good entrance hall, large irregular shaped kitchen/dining/living room and a utility room. From here a door leads to steps down to a cellar, which is a great area for storage. To the side of the house is a gated parking area, which offers sufficient space for two vehicles. The garden runs beyond this area at a higher level and joins up at the back of the house, with several different areas including a large covered patio. A large programme of work has been carried out during the current ownership, which includes re-wiring, re-plastering and the installation of a new central heating system with a new boiler having been fitted within the past year. This is a fascinating property with a great deal offer to anyone who is looking for something individual.
