A modern four/five bedroom detached house with a triple garage, set in 1.35 acres.
Craig Hall is a substantial house of 4,300 sq. ft. in a plot of approximately 1.35 acres adjacent to Aspley Heath woods and the Duke of Bedford's woodland. The setting is peaceful and secluded with direct access to the woods. The price revision followed refusal of planning consent for a separate dwelling in the garden.
The property is double glazed throughout with cavity insulation and a three phase electrical supply. It is well presented throughout and has a light and spacious feel due to the high ceilings and natural light from an abundance of windows.
