The house overlooks a lake and is separated from the road by a low stone wall topped with wrought-iron railings. A metal gate opens onto a small courtyard leading immediately to the front door. To the rear of the property is a garage in a private courtyard shared with two adjoining properties, and secured by an electronically controlled gate. The garage area can be accessed from the garden via a gate. There is also a passageway from the front of the property to the rear garden. The garden is enclosed by head-high timber fence panels with a lawn surrounded by gravel and a shrub border.
In our opinion, this is a delightful home which would suit a family with growing children. Modern and well-equipped, with neutral décor throughout and offered with vacant possession, little needs to be done to enhance the property which offers new owners an opportunity to move in with the minimum of fuss.
