This is a very rare chance to purchase a considerably extended Victorian home that sits on a large plot, approaching an acre (sts), and benefits from over two hundred and fifty feet of river frontage, with views over meadows beyond. There is no chain so a quick completion is available.
The property has a number of interesting character features which include exposed brick and stonework, some wooden doors, oak flooring and a large fireplace containing a wood burning stove.
There is flexible accommodation on the ground floor which includes two bay fronted reception rooms to the front. The living room sits centrally within the property and is a large room and there is an entrance hall connecting this room with the kitchen/dining room which is located to the rear of the house. Off the kitchen there is a utility with a WC off and there is also a pantry. The kitchen is an excellent size room with a large gas fired Aga and offers much scope to redesign and perhaps to add bi-folding doors etc.
On the first floor the master bedroom is to the rear and has a large en suite. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Heating is provided by a gas to radiator system.
Outside the property has off road parking for several cars on a shingled driveway area and double doors offer access to the rear where further parking can be accommodated if required. The extensive grounds are predominately laid to grass and there is a block paved patio to the rear of the house along with some buildings, including a workshop/store. The plot extends towards the river and expands out to the rear of some neighbouring gardens. The extensive river frontage offers considerable scope for landscaping to make the most of the setting, possibly to include a jetty and a terrace. The grounds will require some investment in order for the full potential of this home to be unleashed.
