A detached chalet house, in need of renovation, located in a highly desirable residential street. . The property, which is thought to date from the 1960s, is situated in an enviable non-estate location within walking distance of the High Street, railway station, Waitrose and Tesco supermarket. The house occupies a plot which is believed to extend to between 0.20 and 0.25 acres (subject to survey). The private garden faces west and benefits from south sun. There is plenty of parking space at the front of the house and a single garage to the side. The accommodation, which is heated by gas-fired radiators and benefits from uPVC double glazing, is spacious and versatile. There are two ground floor bedrooms and a bathroom, with three further bedrooms on the first floor which are served by a shower room and a first floor w.c. The reception hall is a dramatic space with a double height vaulted ceiling and a hardwood open tread staircase that leads up to the open landing. Looking down onto the hall, is a first floor gallery sitting area that opens onto a west facing balcony that overlooks the garden. The hall opens into a double aspect sitting room which is well proportioned and also overlooks the rear garden. The dining room has French windows that open out to the garden and there is a kitchen which has a walk in pantry and a door that opens out to the covered walkway that links the house to the garage.
