What a Fantastic Opportunity!
Not only is this a superb family house for a growing family, unique with character, and completely ready to move into as is, but if your plans are to create more space, perhaps to expand as a family, then you need look no further! This solid and original property comes to the market with oodles of potential for a visionary, a planner, or just a keen DIY soul to make a great family home.
Built in 1924 this house has remained unaltered and true to how it was built, with separate lounge and dining room, plus a walk-in pantry. In the garden there is the base for a conservatory project that never concluded. There is plenty of other opportunities to extend out, to the side, or up - subject to planning permission of course.
You're certainly spoilt with a full-width driveway that can house many vehicles - so you'll be able to let all your friends and relatives park easily when they come to give you a hand with the house!
So whether your thing is keeping traditional, modernising, creating space, or a mixture of this and more, this property just has soooo much to offer you...
Oh and your new home is well sited in Newdigate. Turn one way you are in close proximity to Newdigate Primary School, the local shop, the 12th century local church, and one of the two excellent pubs, as well as a bus service to town. The closest train station is Holmwood Station roughly two miles away. Turn the other way and you are a short distance from the CAMRA award winning country pub with acclaimed Indian restaurant right opposite - just perfect for those local nights out.
Also nearby is the Village Green (Brocus) in approximately 12 acres with a children's playground, Scout hut, and cricket pavilion.
For more information about Newdigate and what the village and community offers including schools, sports, youth, walks, etc. there is a very informative website at www.newdigate.org.uk which is well worth a visit.
