Key FeaturesThe Annexe: The Annexe: The annexe was built to the side of the original house just over 20 years ago. As a separate dwelling, it attracts its own council tax rate, but can be granted relief if it is occupied by a family member of the main household or re-integrated into the main house. The annexe has a private entrance from the front of the house as well as access from the kitchen in the main house.
The Garden: The house is raised allowing for a very private outdoor space that isn't overlooked with characterful mature trees. The garden contains a substantial new shed, and greenhouse which can be retained by separate negotiation. The raised house also means the views from the first-floor bedrooms are of the tree canopy bringing a sense of serenity to the rooms, and a beautiful vista when lit at night
The Terrace: accessible from two reception rooms this generous space spans the width of the house overlooking the garden. A great entertaining space that has housed many parties, and barbecues and is also home to an extensive kitchen garden.
The downstairs spaces are versatile and can adapted for the occasion, be it a large dinner party or Christmas lunch, a smaller casual affair, or kids' party; flooded with light from the south-facing garden opening out onto the terrace. It's incredibly peaceful, you are woken to birdsong in this quiet cul de sac that has a wonderful little community. The neighbours are considerate and look out for each other. The property benefits from CCTV to all external angles, a burglar alarm and rekeyed TS007 BSI three star locks to all doors.
STAMP DUTY SAVING: As two dwellings, multiple dwellings relief is available on this purchase, resulting in a £29k stamp duty saving.
