This imposing detached granite house is at the end of Foxes Lane with almost no traffic and enjoys a large private lawned and well planted garden, parking for half a dozen vehicles plus a detached double garage, all sat behind a gated drive. There is potential within the current dwelling to create an annexe or studio workspace on the ground floor and maybe extend or build in the large garden, subject to any necessary consents. Although liveable as is, it has a reached the time where it would benefit from a programme of works to bring it into the 21st century. Offered to the market chain free with vacant possession.
