Situated in a desirable, private road in an area of outstanding natural beauty is this fantastic opportunity to purchase a four bedroom detached family home in need of modernisation throughout and with potential for further expansion (STPP). The property offers just under 2000 sq/ft. of accommodation to include a double garage, two reception rooms and two bathrooms. Outside is one of the roads largest gardens, laid to lawn and again with ample amounts of potential. Vicarage Road rarely sees properties come to the market, making this a rare gem of an opportunity. The road is situated ideally for local amenities and shops, yet feels cut off from the hustle and bustle with its idyllic semi-rural setting.
At the front of the property is the driveway where there is access to the garage and a path that leads you to the covered entrance porch. Once inside you a greeted by a spacious entrance hall with numerous doors to the various rooms and eye-catching parquet flooring.
To your left lies the good sized kitchen with window to the front and a good amount of fitted storage. A door from the kitchen opens into the double garage with single door to rear and double doors to front.
Behind the kitchen is the dining room, accessed from the hallway. The dining room has a wide double glazed window giving great garden views and can easily accommodate a good sized table and numerous chairs.
Sitting next to the dining room you find the L-shaped living room with pretty wooden flooring, log-burning stove and stretching garden views via the patio doors.
Completing the ground floor is a useful cloakroom and shower room from the hallway.
Climbing the staircase you reach the first floor where the four bedrooms and family bathroom can be found.
The master bedroom occupies the rear of the property with its elevated position offering fantastic countryside views. Furthermore a useful balcony makes an ideal spot for sitting out with a coffee in the morning.
The further three bedrooms are all good sized doubles with the second bedroom benefitting from a separate walk in wardrobe with window, which could easily lend itself as an en-suite.
The family bathroom is also a good size with a bath, separate shower, WC and wash basin.
A large loft space is accessible from the landing on the first floor with ample amounts of space offering huge conversion potential.
Outside you find the enormous garden to the rear. A raised patio with access from the living room makes a great spot for dining/entertaining and leads to the lawn area. The garden is an L-shape backing onto woodland and with a useful store ideal for garden machinery. Access to the front of the property is available via each side. Like the house, the garden offers great potential.
