THIS is a beautiful light-filled character residence set within private gardens of 0.5 acres in an enviable position on the edge of town.

With glorious views and all the convenience of the pretty town centre nearby, it offers the best of both worlds for those wanting flexible accommodation and space to work from home.

Whilst lying within walking distance of the pretty town centre and all of its facilities, it enjoys a magnificent position with commanding views and a great sense of privacy. Having been extended and improved over the years, it still retains many of the character features you would expect including stone mullions, an attractive brick fireplace, beautiful herringbone parquet flooring and oak balustrade.

The house suits modern family living with a great combination of light and spacious reception rooms.

There’s an element of open-plan living whilst still retaining your ability to close them off into more traditional separate reception rooms.

It has a lovely flow to the accommodation and all principal rooms enjoy the southerly facing views over the Shudrick Valley and beyond.

The house is barely visible from the road, being set in an elevated position up its own private driveway leading around to the rear of the property.

There is ample parking / turning space on the gravelled driveway and access to two former garages.
