Originally built in 1998 by a well known local building company, the present owners have been in occupation since new and have maintained to a high standard. Sunnyside extends to over 1600 square feet of living space, arranged on two floors, and is set in the most delightful landscaped gardens that are a real feature of the house. Presented in impeccable order throughout, the property has scope to convert and extend the existing accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permission. Connected to all mains services, the property has gas fired central heating and timber double glazed windows throughout. Traditionally constructed with facing brick elevations and a rendered panel gable, under a small plain tiled roof with a tall brick chimney.
