Full Property Details

This fine house is one of a pair, originally built in 1927 for the local police officers, lying towards the edge of the rural parish of Broadhembury, conveniently close to the A373 for commuting.

In recent years, our client has added a magnificent ground floor extension to greatly enhance the living space. This includes a large kitchen, with underfloor heating and fitted in a classic Shaker style, with plenty of cupboard storage and oak work surfaces, and a spacious dining area and family/play room, with folding doors leading out to the secluded, paved patio. The sitting area lies to one side, with an attractive wood burner in the corner, perfect for the longer winter evenings and a separate room, the 'snug', is ideal for quieter times and relaxing, or could make a great home office, play room or fourth bedroom, if required. Beside the dining room there is a downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a family shower room and there is potential to extend the first floor over the ground floor extension if more bedrooms are needed, subject to the relevant consents.

The property is entered via large, electrically operated wooden gates, giving access to a brick paved parking area for at least three cars and leading to the large double garage. This has been constructed with cavity brick and block walls, insulated, and fitted with central heating, from the house boiler, and a sink unit, so could be converted to a home office, studio or annexe, if required and subject to any relevant consents. Currently, it is fitted with a hydraulic car ramp, which could be left if desired by any purchaser.

The front garden has an area of lawn and to the rear, there is paved patio, easy to maintain and accessed from the family room and kitchen, perfect for barbecues and entertaining.

A short step down the lane from the house, there is a small paddock/orchard of approximately 0.2 acres, laid to grass with a range of fruit trees. This is a great amenity area for family to enjoy for picnics or camping or it could be further developed as a wildlife habitat and flower meadow.
