A Victorian six double bedroom detached house with over 3,300 sq. ft. of accommodation, annexe potential, a double garage and a 0.31 acre plot, on a private no through lane.
Built in the late 1800s, Abbotts Hill is white rendered under a slate tiled roof and was enlarged by the current owners approximately 47 years ago to provide accommodation for an elderly relative. This part of the property could be adapted to create a self-contained annexe subject to the necessary planning consents. The elevated position of the property gives far reaching views from the main reception rooms and principle bedrooms. It requires some updating but retains many period character features including picture rails, internal doors and fireplaces. The mature gardens have a southerly aspect and offer a good degree of privacy, and the in and out driveway provides off street parking. The detached double garage has power connected and an adjoining log and coal store.
The kitchen/breakfast room and three reception rooms are all dual aspect. The dining room has a bay window overlooking the rear garden, and the 26 ft. sitting room has an open fire and doors to the sunroom at each end. Five of the six double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and cupboards, with the master bedroom also having a three piece en suite bathroom and a dressing area. The loft has the potential for conversion subject to planning consent.
The property has right of way over a private drive, and there is an in and out driveway ahead of the double garage. The southerly facing gardens wrap around the property, are laid principally to lawn and have mature trees and fencing to the borders. There is a well-stocked raised bed beneath the sunroom and a path which ascends to a landscaped area with a greenhouse. There are views above the tree tops towards the Denner Hill and North Dean.
