Our home for the last 13 years is on the market with NO CHAIN. 

We want to be as honest as possible.

We are under no illusions that someone will come in, rip things out and change it, have you seen Escape to the Country lately! It's the nature of people; we would if we were staying and didn't want to fulfil a dream of living in the middle of nowherell!!!

Below are the basic details:

Before you even consider asking to come and see it though it does, some think, need some updating - hence the ridiculously low price. Above all else though be aware that it is a 'home' that has been loved and lived in, not just a house used as a base.  If you have the vision and if you are willing to see past the fixtures, fittings and our furniture you can put your own stamp on it and make it your 'home'. If you like parties then (when lockdown has finished) it has the space and parking for lots of friends and family gatherings, which I think we are all desperate for.

1963 - Linked only by the Garage - It is a Detached House with Side Porch - Hall (with under stairs storage which could be turned into a downstairs loo!)  -   Breakfast Kitchen (for actually cooking in)  - Lounge (including cast iron multifuel fire) - Dining Room - Garden Room. This massive downstairs brickbuilt extension allows us to alternate Summer and Winter as the Lounge or  Dining Room. 

Upstairs is a Bathroom and 3 Bedrooms (all with built-in storage). Further rooms could be added above the extension.There is also access to masses of loft space, which we are emptying slowly (read the rest of this website).

There is a 'Study' or mega Garage / Utility with a coal hole/understairs cupboard, it runs the full length of the original house but could easily be extended even more.

An Orchard, paved patio area and lawns makes up the large back garden (17lb of cherries in 2020!). Only a Bungalow at the bottom so we are not overlooked.

There is space for parking 3 cars on the drive, which does need re-surfacing, but we also benefit from not having any yellow or zigzag lines outside. Ok the school can be a pain at times, but hey ho, if you have kids it is the quickest school run ever.  

It is already probably the largest 3 bedroomed house on the road and its potential for further expansion is enormous; without losing any of the main garden. The garage could even be turned into an annexe? 

It has Gas Central Heating and I might even throw in my Leisure Cookmaster gas cooker if we get the right price. 

The 'Study' can be accessed via the porch and back garden without the need for entering the house. So if you have become a work from home person it is ideal. 

Asking price is - Offers over £285,000, lovely neighbours included.We are happy to put our furniture into storage and wander the country for a while if you want a quick sale (within reason)

Not sure what else I can say, except please don't hesitate to contact Dixons Estate Agents - 01527 280346 or us if you are seriously interested and have sold your own house or are cash buyers.
