A fabulous opportunity to acquire a very unique and individual property positioned in a little known area, private yet close to the town, set with substantial grounds.
Springwood stands within a substantial area of grounds with some wonderful views over the surrounding area. Positioned on a quiet backwater of the town yet within a walkable distance of the town centre.
In need of modernisation this would ideally suit those looking to start with a blank canvas and make their own mark. The property itself is a detached bungalow having three bedrooms and three loft rooms (ripe for conversion with the necessary consents). The bungalow has lots of space and provides flexible accommodation. A central hallway provides easy access to all rooms and has a loft ladder giving access to the loft rooms. The living/dining room sits to the rear of the property and overlooks the lovely grounds with views over the surrounding area. A traditional style fireplace provides a focal point of the room. A dining area has plenty of space for a family dining suite. Adjoining the living/dining room is a sun room that accesses the rear garden. The kitchen although dated has been looked after and remains fully functional and has space for a breakfast table. A utility room next to the kitchen provides space for storage and also white goods. From here access is given to the side of the bungalow. The bedrooms are all gathered to one end of the bungalow with the master room overlooking the rear garden with far reaching views over the surrounding area. Bedroom two overlooks the side garden and also has some lovely far reaching views. The third bedroom also looks out over the rear garden and shares the wonderful views. A family bathroom has a dated but fully functional suite that includes a bath, separate shower, w/c and wash basin built within a vanity cupboard. In addition to the bathroom a separate cloakroom with w/c sits alongside.
The loft rooms are accessed via a loft ladder which brings you to the central loft room, space up here is not short and could be used for a variety of purposes to suit. At either end are additional rooms that are also not shy of space, one of which has a window to the side with fantastic views over parts of the town and rolling countryside.
Outside the grounds are fabulous, a sweeping driveway leads to ample parking and a garage set to the side of the bungalow. Gardens run alongside the driveway with a mixture of lawn, borders with flowering plants, shrubs and trees. The rear garden has a large expanse of lawn with varying borders of plants, shrubs and trees. A handy timber shed offers a place to store garden implements and tools and additionally there is a Victorian style greenhouse and a brick-built lawn mower shed. The lower part of the garden, which is next to the town leat, is currently grassed over but was formerly a substantial vegetable and fruit plot supplying the house with fresh produce.
Main's electricity, gas, water, and drainage.
