An excellent opportunity to acquire a generously proportioned property and surrounding gardens which we understand is being offered for sale for the very first time during the current ownership. The property is situated in a delightful and much sought-after position, close to the centuries old Parish Church on Winscombe Hill, offering huge potential to re-design and modernise further (subject to any planning permission/consent required). The versatile accommodation is currently arranged over one level with a generous sized garage below and measures 170 sq.m (1830 sq.ft) as stated on the energy performance certificate dated 28 August 2018. In brief, the accommodation which benefits from a gas fired central heating system and double glazed windows throughout is arranged as follows: An Entrance Vestibule and Reception Hall, a Living Room with open fireplace and French doors leading out to the garden, Dining Room and modern Kitchen/Breakfast Room with a Rangemaster cooker. In addition, there is a Home Office/Playroom, a Utility/Cloakroom, four Bedrooms, a Bathroom and separate Shower Room. The property is approached via a private driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles which in turn leads to the Carport and Garage. The gardens will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest and offer much potential for further landscaping. To summarise, in our opinion, this property will be the subject of considerable interest from the outset, with this in mind, an internal inspection is highly recommended at an early opportunity. Viewing appointments are strictly by arrangement, exclusively through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
