The Property:

A rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a unique and architect designed property boasting beautiful tranquil gardens adjoining Sherrardswood.


This substantial detached bungalow, one of four architect designed properties built in the late 1950's, is offered to the market chain free.

Although now in need of an element of updating, it offers generous accommodation perfectly suited to family living along with the most tranquil of gardens to the rear which adjoin woodland.

Approaching the property, the front garden is well-screened from the road with a driveway for several cars and access to the detached garage.

The entrance hall leads into the open-plan living/dining room which are both flooded in natural light from full-height windows and doors to the front and side elevations. There is a lovely little snug/reading room and a central fireplace is a feature in the living room and houses the boiler in the kitchen.

Fitted with a wide range of storage cupboards, the kitchen overlooks the garden to the rear and provides space for a breakfast table.

From here, a separate utility space and cloakroom with WC provides access to the side and rear along with a door into the annex which has a bedroom and bathroom - perfect for teenagers/home office or relatives.

An inner hall provides a further family room, currently utilised as a study and seating area. This room enjoys views over a sunny and secluded courtyard along with access to the four bedrooms and family bathroom.

The property had a replacement roof installed in 2019 and was re-wired in 2016. It also benefits from some uPVC double glazing and gas fired heating in the form of warm air to the main part of the house and a separate combi boiler for hot water and heating in the annex.

In summary; situated within close walking distance of sought after schooling, the town centre and mainline station, this a truly wonderful opportunity to purchase a property which has been a very happy family home in the same ownership since the late 1970's.
