Full Details

Property Description
The home sits at the foot of Oakley Hill adjacent to a public footpath which leads straight to the Canford Estate and sits along side the River Stour. Positioned centrally on its plot the home's accommodation comprises a triple aspect living room, kitchen with breakfast area, study, cloakroom and utility to the ground floor and there are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor. The master bedroom suite has been formed by combining two bedrooms, and this could easily be split back to create four formal bedrooms. Furthermore, the home has already been sympathetically extended on the ground floor and there is, in our opinion, scope for the home to be extended further (STPP). The home has also been double glazed, has full cavity insulation and benefits from gas fired heating as well as an electrically operated Aga.

Gardens and Grounds
The front garden has been landscaped and a large tarmacadam parking area formed, which can be accessed from the in-and-out style driveway. An attached tandem garage is positioned to the right hand side of the home and to the left hand side there are a pair of wooden gates, which denote access to the side of the property, where there is an area of hard standing, ideally suited to motorhome or caravan storage. The rear garden is primarily laid to a kept lawn and surrounding flower beds there is a stepped patio area which spans the entire rear elevation of the home. There is a summerhouse, as well as two garden sheds and a greenhouse. The garden is well stocked and a selection of mature bushes and fencing clearly denote the boundaries, as well as providing an excellent degree of privacy.
