The accommodation is relatively extensive providing two good reception rooms at the front approached from a central hallway with a large kitchen/breakfast room to the rear. This is in turn adjoined by a good sized garden room with a large workshop also adjoining which has possibilities also for conversion. Five bedrooms are present at first floor level with a bathroom on the ground floor at the present time. The property has been subject to flooding on several occasions in the past, most recently in 2012 and 2006. Although insurance claims have been met the 87 year old owner has now decided that it is time for a move. The accommodation at ground floor level is in a basic condition as since the last water ingress occupation has been taken solely at first floor level. The house stands within good sized gardens with grounds beyond, some being former orchards which extend to about 2 acres in all.
The property is approached via a fairly lengthy driveway which terminates in a hard standing and turning area with a garage adjoining. The gardens to the front are primarily laid to lawn. The majority of the grounds lie to the rear adjoining the banks of the River Tone to one side and includes former orchard section together with flower and vegetable sections. In all the grounds extend to approximately 1.84 acres.
