Situated within the centre of the village, a short walk to the wide range of amenities offered within this sought-after village, the property is located along Overcote Road which is an attractive road leading to the river where wonderful walks can be enjoyed and a jetty which provides access for boats and kayaking to the river. The property has been extended but would appreciate some updating and with such a large garden, there is scope for further development subject to necessary planning.
The entrance hall has stairs leading to the first floor, WC and doors leading off to reception rooms which include a sitting room, separate dining room and kitchen at the rear which overlooks the garden. First-floor accommodation comprises four bedrooms - a generous master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a second good-sized double with built-in wardrobes and two further single bedrooms, with a family bathroom and separate WC.
To the front of the property is a lawned area with hedging to the boundary, driveway providing off-road parking leading to a tandem length garage with up and over door, power and light connected, and personnel door to garden. To the side of the property is a passage that provides access to the garage and a door leading into the rear garden. The rear garden is 1/3 acre, mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by fencing with mature trees, planting and hedging.
