Offered for sale with NO ONWARD CHAIN this is a most exciting and increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a detached family home set in a generous plot in the heart of Newmillerdam. Offering huge potential and enjoying a high degree of privacy an early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the possibilities that this fabulous property has to offer.
Accessed via a long driveway that sweeps through the extensive woodland gardens that afford the property a high degree of privacy and complete seclusion from the main road the property enjoys an elevated position within this most generous of plots. There is clear potential to either remodel the existing property or to extend, subject to obtaining the relevant consents.
The ground floor layout offers a high degree of flexibility having four rooms in addition to the spacious breakfast kitchen that is complete with a breakfast bar and ample wall and base units. Beamed ceilings and stone fireplaces give the property a warm cosy feel in winter and the spacious utility/boot room with an easy clean tiled floor is ideal for ramblers or pets. The inner hallway provides convenient access to the large garage, which again offers a high degree of flexibility in any form of remodelling the property.
To the first floor there are three bedrooms, the main bedroom having a large walk-in storage cupboard that with minimal work could quite easily become a walk-in wardrobe, it would also be entirely feasible for an en-suite shower/bathroom to be incorporated within this large bedroom. The property benefits from having a shower room adjacent to, but separate from the family bathroom which has a white three-piece suite comprising panelled bath, low flush WC and wash basin.
Externally the property is surrounded by a mixture of mature woodland and lawned gardens, the stone paved patio provides the perfect area for al-fresco dining or watching the local wildlife. The property has ample private parking leading to the large integral garage complete with fitted light, power and a WC.
