A spacious family home in need of modernisation with integral annexe amid pretty gardens in a tucked away yet central village location. Down Edge is a spacious family home originally dating from the 1930s and subsequently extended to create adaptable family living space including an integral one bedroom annexe. The property is set amid lovely gardens in a discreet village setting with good access to village amenities and convenient road links nearby. The property presents traditional brick elevations and the frontage is particularly attractive, having a wide gable housing the storm porch and dormer window above. The property has been a much loved family home. However, it now requires modernization and provides the opportunity to put your own stamp onto this versatile family home. The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout. At the front, there are two reception rooms including a double aspect sitting room with raised stone open fireplace flanked by bookshelves and a dining room with picture rail. There is also a fitted kitchen with adjacent breakfast room and a study. The property benefits from a ground floor extension which comprises a bedroom and shower room with adjacent reception room, ideal for use as an annexe. Upstairs are three generously proportioned bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom. In addition, the integral garage (currently utilized as a utility room) offers potential for conversion to further accommodation, subject to planning. The house is set amid established south facing gardens which are a particular highlight of the property. A new owner might prefer to reduce the height of some of the hedges, thus opening up views of the adjoining fields. The gardens include a multitude of flowering shrubs, herbaceous plants, spring bulbs and established trees, creating colour and interest throughout the seasons. From the lane, there is gated access to the gravelled driveway which provides parking for several vehicles. In addition to the integral garage, there is a detached brick built double garage. * NO ONWARD CHAIN * FEATURES - Storm porch with original oak door giving access to entrance hall leading to landing with picture window - Double aspect sitting room with stone raised open fireplace and garden views - Dining room with picture rails and garden views - Kitchen fitted with a range of modern cabinets with integral electric oven, combi microwave, gas hob and fridge/freezer - 3 double bedrooms - the master including fitted wardrobes - Generously sized family bathroom and ground floor cloakroom - Ground floor annexe comprising reception room, bedroom lobby and shower room - Integral garage with power and light in situ - Detached double garage with power and light in situ - Lovely mature south facing garden and ample parking area SITUATION Down Edge is located in the village of Westfield which lies on the A28 in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
