DESCRIPTION
Grey Walls has been a much loved family home to the current owners and is now being offered for sale for the first time in over thirty years. The house was built in the kitchen garden of the adjacent property, York Cottage by Messrs Charliers, local builders still held in high regard, circa 1966 hence the tall ragstone walls behind which it stands. It occupies an unusually generous plot for this most sought after central location with a wide frontage of approximately 95 feet and a total area of around 0.2 of an acre. The owners have created an enchanting garden setting which encompasses the house to three sides with the greater area lying to the south of the house and an unusual level of privacy being afforded by the thoughtfully planned, mature planting.

Whilst appearing to have been generally well maintained it is fair to say that it would now benefit from general updating however, with already comfortably proportioned accommodation and considerable scope to extend (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained) it offers the potential to create a particularly comfortable home. The accommodation is currently arranged to provide an entrance hall, sitting room with doors to the conservatory and archway to a separate dining room, study/third bedroom, cloakroom and kitchen. The first floor comprises a generous landing, two large double bedrooms, a shower room and separate w.c. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property with mature planting for year round interest, expanses of lawn, a kitchen garden and a very useful greenhouse. There is off street parking on the driveway and an integral garage with electronically operated door. The house also benefits from a Solarbank water heating system installed in 2005. From April to October, providing it is reasonably sunny, domestic hot water is at no cost.
