A 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached house with lovely gardens. Quietly positioned in a private village close with a double garage and lots of parking.
Number 1 has the largest plot of the four detached houses on New Farm Close, which wass built in the 1990s as a private, block-paved cul-de-sac right at the heart of the village. It is pleasantly, peacefully secluded, well back from the High Street within mature, leafy gardens.
The house has three main reception rooms set around an impressive reception hall, plus a kitchen / breakfast room with Aga, a utility room and large cloakroom. There are four first floor bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, and the main bathroom.
There is a detached double garage in front of the house with two parking spaces in front, and beside this a further driveway area with a length of about 60ft / 18m, ideal for a large motorhome, boat or similar, or just as extra parking. The main rear garden is about 90ft / 27m in length.
The house is double glazed and has oil fired central heating to radiators. It also owns the main driveway, which is an additional 0.1 acres / 450 sqm or so, over which the neighbours have access and pay their share of any future maintenance.
