Property Details


A detached period house constructed of cream washed smooth rendered elevations beneath a mainly tiled roof, with spacious accommodation extending to over 1,700 sq ft.  Whilst perfectly habitable, the property offers great scope and potential for re-styling and modernisation and comprises a central hallway, large open plan living/dining room, separate study/reception hall, a good size dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room and a family bathroom on the ground floor.  To the first floor where the majority of the rooms enjoy a view towards the river and water meadows, there is a master bedroom with large en suite bathroom as well as three further double bedrooms. Outside the property benefits from off-road parking, a single garage/ workshop as well as two areas of garden - a mainly walled side garden and a fantastic separate private garden on the opposite side of the road bordering the River Avon with single bank fishing rights and wonderful open views.
