A detached three bedroom chalet house which benefits from a large mature garden and a meadow at the rear which is believed to extend to approximately 1 acre (subject to detailed survey and measurement). The property is located at the end of an un-adopted road and off a shared private driveway. There is parking to the front and an integral single garage. The house, which is thought to date from the 1980s, would now benefit from a programme of general modernisation. There is potential to extend the property and considerably enhance it both inside and out. The accommodation is centrally heated by oil fired radiators and also benefits from an open fireplace. The ground floor includes a spacious sitting room/dining room which opens to the rear garden via French windows. There is a fitted kitchen and a ground floor master bedroom with an en-suite shower room. The utility room opens into a useful cloakroom and the inner lobby with the staircase could also be used as a small study. The two, double, first floor bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The garden at the rear is laid to lawn with mature trees and established shrubs. There are two sheds linked by a covered seating/storage area. A field gate opens to the meadow which abuts agricultural land and is laid to grass. The meadow is bordered by mature hedging and is partially fenced with post and wire along the lower boundary. There is no access to the meadow other than through the garden of Mill Top House. This property may of particular interest to conservationists and we strongly recommend an early appointment to view given the rarity of properties with meadowland.
