AN ESTABLISHED DETACHED HOUSE SET IN APPROXIMATLEY 2.4 ACRES AND OFFERING CONSIDERABLE POTENTIAL Close Farm is a three bedroom detached property occupying grounds of about 2.4 acres together with a range of outbuildings which are in of need of repair. We believe the property was originally constructed in the 1930's with a substantial extension added in the 1970's. There remains ample scope to enlarge the property (subject planning permission) so it represents an ideal opportunity for those purchasers wishing to inject their own tastes on a property. It is located on the village outskirts on a no-through lane and benefits from open views to the rear. The property is entered through a part glazed front door leading to the entrance hall where stairs rise to the first floor. Doors lead to both the sitting room and dining room. The sitting room has a feature open fireplace and a door opening to the breakfast area of the kitchen. The dining room has a feature fireplace with a fitted cupboard to the side. The kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with floor and wall mounted units and has a large opening to the breakfast area which has a window to the side and a door to rear. There is a built in electric oven, four ring hob and an extractor. Off the kitchen is the boot room with a door to outside. Also off the kitchen is a utility area which provides access to a cloakroom fitted with a white suite of low level WC and wash basin. The first floor landing provides access to bedroom one which is dual aspect. Bedroom two has a window to the front and a range of fitted cupboards. Bedroom three is located at the rear of the property and has an airing cupboard housing an insulated hot water tank. The bathroom has a window to the side and is fitted with a panelled bath, wash basin and a low level WC. OUTSIDE In total the grounds extend to approximately 2.4 acres. Surrounding the house are formal gardens which are laid mainly to lawn and stocked with a variety of mature trees (including fruit trees) and shrubs. At the rear there is an outside store which houses the oil fired central heating boiler. The remainder of the land is laid to grass and has a variety of outbuildings, although some of these are in a poor state of repair. These outbuildings comprise two barns, a covered store and four stables. We understand it is the vendors intention to include an overage clause into the contract of sale. This is to protect themselves against any future development of the land. The terms of the overage are currently under consideration.
