The property comes with full planning permission to erect a bespoke three bedroom, three bathroom detached property on a plot to the side of the current house.

The property is incredibly versatile, having four reception rooms, two of which, could be used as additional bedrooms due to having a spacious bathroom on the ground floor. There are a further three double bedrooms, one having an ensuite and a further bathroom to the first floor. The property has been kept to a very high standard with a number of upgrades added by the current owners. This home oozes charm throughout.

The front, side and rear gardens can all be accessed from here. A privet hedge hides the property from Ashby Lane and a pretty black iron garden gate leads from the lane up to the front door via a pathway. The pathway leads around the side of the house to the driveway and Double garage and iron gates lead through to the rear garden and patio areas.
